Fourier-Domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) is the latest technology available to provide high-speed, high-resolution imaging of the cornea, anterior chamber angle, macula, and optic nerve head. It is uniquely suited for ophthalmologists that treat diseases from the front to the back of the eye.
Inside Imaging the Eye from Front to Back with RTVue Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography, Drs. David Huang, Jay S. Duker, James G. Fujimoto, Bruno Lumbroso, Joel S. Schuman, and Robert N. Weinreb cover up-to-date OCT technology and diagnostic software of the RTVue. It is the first book that covers clinical applications from the front to the back of the eye, as opposed to concentrating either on posterior segment imaging or anterior segment imaging.
Inside you’ll find:
- Explanation of Fourier-Domain OCT technology
- Teaching of scan pattern selection
- Step-by-step instruction for scan acquisition
- Teaching of the interpretations of OCT images and measurements by many case examples
- Interpretation of en face images
Some chapters covered:
- Anterior segment
- Posterior segment
- Age-related macular degeneration
- Diabetic retinopathy
Imaging the Eye from Front to back with RTVue Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography is the must-have book for general ophthalmologists, glaucoma specialists, retina specialists, cornea specialists, and refractive surgeons, as well as biomedical engineers.
About the Editors
- David Huang, MD, PhD is the Manger Chair of Corneal Laser Surgery and Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Southern California and Director of the Doheny Laser Vision Center. He co-invented OCT when he was a PhD student with Professor James Fujimoto at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He heads the Center for Ophthalmic Optic and Lasers (www.COOLLab.net), a group that pioneered corneal and anterior segment OCT. He leads the Advanced Imaging for Glaucoma Bioengineering Partnership (www.AIGStudy.net), which developed OCT ganglion cell complex mapping and retinal blood flow measurement.
- Jay S. Duker, MD is the Director of the New England Eye Center and Professor and Chair of Ophthalmology at Tufts Medical Center and the Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. His research interests include clinical applications of OCT technology for disease of the posterior segment of the eye. He is co-editor of one of the best-selling textbooks in ophthalmology, Yanoff and Duker’s Ophthalmology.
- James G. Fujimoto, PhD is Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research interests include biomedical optical imaging using OCT, as well as femtosecond photonics. Dr. Fujimoto is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
- Bruno Lumbroso, MD has been Director of the Department of Ophthalmology of the Rome Eye Hospital and Professor LD of Clinical Ophthalmology in the University of Rome La Sapienza for more than 35 years. He is involved in postgraduate teaching of Ocular Imaging in European and Mediterranean countries. His main interest is in logical methods of retinal imaging analysis and interpretation.
- Joel S. Schuman, MD, FACS is the Eye and Ear Foundation Professor and Chairman of Ophthalmology and Director of the UPMC Eye Center at the University of Pittsburgh, where he is also Professor of Bioengineering. Dr. Schuman co-invented OCT while a fellow at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard University, and pioneered the use of OCT in glaucoma during his tenure at New England Eye Center, Tufts University School of Medicine.
- Robert N. Weinreb, MD is the Distinguished Professor of Ophthalmology and
the Director of the Hamilton Glaucoma Center at the University of California,
San Diego. Known for its unique cross-disciplinary investigative programs,
the Hamilton Glaucoma Center is home for a world-renowned team of scientists
and staff. Dr. Weinreb has trained more than 120 postdoctoral fellows in glaucoma,
many of whom hold distinguished academic positions throughout the world.
