New Technologies for Glaucoma Imaging

Description

Assessment of the optic disc and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) is pivotal in detecting and following glaucoma. With the advent of new ocular imaging technologies, objective and reliable measurement of optic disc and RNFL parameters has become possible. The optical coherence tomography (OCT), confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (CSLO), and scanning laser polarimetry (SLP) are three prevailing glaucoma imaging technologies that have evolved rapidly over the recent years in both hardware and software configurations. Clinical studies conducted with these instruments have provided important insights in understanding the development and progression of glaucoma. We invite authors to submit original research articles that report the application of existing or novel technologies for optic disc and RNFL imaging. Reviews that summarize the latest clinical studies on imaging technologies related to glaucoma management are also welcomed.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Roles of optic disc and RNFL imaging in glaucoma detection
  • Development and advances of imaging technologies
  • Approaches for evaluation of optic disc and RNFL progression
  • Impact of optic disc and RNFL imaging in glaucoma management

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jop/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
