The emergence of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) lately has revolutionized the way in which we see the retina. delivering, in actual time, high-resolution cross-sectional photographs of the macula which are similar to acquiring in vivo histopathological specimens, OCT represents an incredible increase within the diagnostics of retinal disorder. the thrill of operating with this new software has been dampened via the non-availability of any usual textbook at the topic and intended that each new discovering at the OCT observed us dashing to the library nearly every day to find any released experiences at the topic. till now.
Containing approximately 900 scans of either common and diseased appearances, so much in complete colour, Atlas of Optical Coherence Tomography of Macular ailments covers tips on how to use Stratus OCT for diagnosing quite a few macular issues, choosing right healing techniques and tracking the responses to remedies and interventions. The authors offer short case summaries, fundus images, fluorescein angiography, and the OCT photos and the persist with up pictures. They talk about OCT functions for analysis, administration, and follow-up in diabetic macular edema, macular gap, taut posterior hyaloid membrane, vitreofoveal traction, idiopathic valuable serous chorioretinoplasty, submacular pathology, and extra.

The hyperreflective shadows seen within the retinal layers (arrows) were from hard exudates. Large cystoid spaces involving variable depth of the retina with intervening septae: The cystoid spaces are initially confined to the outer retina mainly, but in long standing cases, these cysts fuse to involve almost entire length of the retina. Fluorescein angiography showed late leakage (B). Fluorescein angiography revealed diffuse leakage with cystoid spaces in the late phase (B). Optical Coherence Tomography Macular thickness OCT scan through various angles confirmed the cystoid spaces with intervening septae (C and D).
Fluorescein angiography showed expanding dot sign, thus confirming the diagnosis of ICSC (A). Page 50 Optical Coherence Tomography A horizontal line scan through the fovea showed elevation of neurosensory retina with an optically clear space underneath that corresponded to the presence of serous fluid under the fovea (B). Repeat OCT showed resolution of serous fluid with return of foveal contour to normal (C). Fundus right eye showed the presence of serous fluid in the center with a linear, hypopigmented band suggestive of fibrinous exudation (A).
Subfoveal Serous detachment. Fluorescein angiography of the right eye revealed microaneurysms with leak in the late phase (B). In addition, there was an area of hyporeflectivity in the subfoveal region consistent with subfoveal serous retinal detachment (arrow). Fluorescein angiography of the left eye revealed microaneurysms in the early phase that showed leak in the late phase and neovascularization elsewhere (NVE) (B). No serous detachment was seen at this stage. The posterior hyaloid membrane (PHM) was seen anteriorly that was attached to the foveal center.
