Interpretation of Imaging Data from Spectralis OCT
The capabilities of spectral-domain and swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems are evolving rapidly with 3D imaging, reproducible registration, and advanced segmentation algorithms of the optic nerve head, retinal nerve fiber layer and macular region. These systems have established themselves as the predominant imaging modality for management of glaucoma, providing high-resolution visualization of ocular microstructures and objective quantification of tissue thickness and change over time. Spectralis OCT (Heidelberg Engineering Inc., Heidelberg, Germany) is one of the most commonly used platforms. This chapter provides an update on the features and functions of Spectralis OCT device and the practical tips for interpretation of the most commonly used reports.
