Optical Coherence Tomography in Ophthalmology

Description

Optical coherence tomography is an optical signal acquisition and processing method that captures micrometer-resolution, three-dimensional images from within biological tissues. Over the last decade, optical coherence tomography has become an important imaging technology used in diagnosing and following macular pathologies. It has complemented fluorescein angiography in many instances, especially in the diagnosis and management of various retinal disorders, including macular edema and age-related macular degeneration. In addition, further development enabled application of optical coherence tomography in evaluation of the integrity of the nerve fiber layer, optic nerve cupping, anterior chamber angle, or even corneal topography.

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that aim to describe various issues regarding the use of optical coherence tomography in ophthalmology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Assessment of the reproducibility and comparison of scanning protocols of various optical coherence tomography software in glaucoma
  • Analysis of different spectral domain optical coherence tomography devices regarding retinal thickness values in patients with macular diseases
  • Applications of optical coherence tomography to study the anterior chamber biometry, corneal thickness and topography, lens thickness, angle configuration, phakic intraocular lenses, and intracorneal ring segments
  • Established and novel parameters of diagnostic accuracies of scanning protocols for glaucoma and retinal diseases
  • Novel classifications or staging of macular diseases based on optical coherence tomography data
  • Comparison of software tools among various optical coherence tomography devices
  • Future developments and improvements in the modalities of optical coherence tomography including ultra- high-resolution machines, polarisation-sensitive tomographies, or doppler optical coherence tomographies
  • Methods of real-time imaging and visualisation of volumetric optical coherence tomography data
