Clinical Applications of High Resolution In-Vivo Retinal Imaging


Human eye in vivo retinal imaging has advanced substantially in the last years. It is now possible to image various microscopic retinal structures including cone and rod photoreceptors, retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), microcysts, blood vessels, and other structures by using ultrahigh resolution retinal imaging systems such as optical coherence tomography and adaptive optics imaging techniques. Also, unique retinal properties such as birefringence of the nerve fiber layer and depolarization of the RPE layer have been used to detect subtle changes in the retina for earlier diagnosis of disease. A key goal of retinal imaging is to detect structural changes earlier for better prognosis of patients.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as clinical study articles that utilized ultrahigh-resolution retinal imaging systems to study retinal and optic nerve diseases as well as basic retinal physiology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent developments in retinal imaging technologies
  • Advances in retinal and optic nerve disease mechanisms
  • Latest developments in clinical evaluation and measuring outcomes
  • Recent advances in therapy
