Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases Hardback
For more than 17 years, Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases has been the classic text on this essential imaging technology.
This completely revised and updated third edition reflects the quickly advancing technology of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Incorporated within over 600 pages are a multitude of updated features unique to this third edition including over 1,200 colour images, state-of-the-art technology, and case presentations.
These elements cohesively work together to successfully demonstrate the retina in normal and diseased states using SD-OCT. Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases, Third Edition is written with the clinician in mind.
The text's primary objective is to illustrate the appearance of the eye in health and disease, comparing conventional clinical technologies using SD-OCT imaging.
This method introduces the clinician to the manifestations of disease as indicated by OCT, while presenting the more familiar funduscopic and fluorescein angiographic views side by side. Drs. Joel S. Schuman, Carmen A. Puliafito, James G. Fujimoto, and Jay S. Duker, together with their 21 contributors, have collaborated to revise and update this best-selling comprehensive resource to reflect the current state-of-the-art technology of SD-OCT.
OCT applications in retinal diseases, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, anterior segment, and a description of OCT technologies are all topics extensively covered in this new third edition.
Two appendices are included that contain a wealth of technical information for those interested in learning more about the physical principles of operation of this diagnostic imaging technology, as well as scanning and image processing protocols. Features:Utilizes and interprets SD-OCT imaging from multiple machines. Over 1,200 color images. Strong focus on retina, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, and the anterior segment. This classic text will provide a clinical reference for eye care professionals, as well as retina and glaucoma specialists, that shows how to utilize and interpret OCT imaging to enhance diagnostic sensitivity and specificity, as well as to enhance therapeutic decision making and monitor the outcome of treatment.
This is the go-to resource for both clinicians and scientists interested in optical imaging of the eye. A Doody's Core Title selection.
