Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an innovative technology that provides high-resolution cross-sectional and 3D imaging of the anterior segment of the eye and the cornea. It offers a non-contact method for imaging that enhances surgical planning and postoperative care for a variety of anterior segment applications. Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography, written by Dr. Roger Steinert and Dr. David Huang, along with 22 of the field’s leading professionals, is the first comprehensive text that explains both the scientific principles and clinical applications of this technology.
The book includes valuable images that assist in pre- and postoperative assessment of various anterior segment disorders, and detailed information on biometric measurements to enhance diagnostic capability. It covers a range of applications, including mapping of corneal thickness and evaluation of keratoconus, measurement of LASIK flap and stromal bed thickness, diagnosis of narrow angle glaucoma by visualizing and measuring the anterior chamber angle, measurement of the dimensions of the anterior chamber, and assessing the fit of intraocular lens implants. It also covers imaging through corneal opacity to see internal eye structures and visualizing and measuring the results of corneal implants and lamellar procedures.
Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography is a must-have for anterior segment, refractive, cornea, and glaucoma surgeons, as it provides a wealth of useful clinical and physiological material about this new diagnostic imaging technique. The book is on the leading edge of anterior segment imaging, making it an indispensable resource for eye care professionals who want to stay up-to-date with the latest technology and enhance their diagnostic capability.
