The OCT scan is a quick and non-invasive method for diagnosis of diseases of the ocular fundus – macula and optic nerve. The latest software version makes possible the measuring of iridocorneal angle with anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). OCT imaging is a very precise method for diagnosis with a high resolution of the images (many times more than MRI), which gives a slice image or a 3D image of the examined structure. It is extremely useful for diseases of the ocular fundus such as age-related macular degeneration, before and after Avastine treatment, central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC), cystoid diabetic macular edema (CME), glaucomatous changes in the disc of the optic nerve and others.
The OCT Scanner saves patients’ images and comparisons can be made during further examinations. These are OCT colour images of all retinal layers that can be recorded. The scanner is unique because it shows a “live” retinal slice. It gives the opportunity for 3D animation of the examined structure of the ocular fundus thus facilitating the patient to understand the result.
The software for glaucoma offers a great variety of possibilities for examination of the disc of the optic nerve, excavation, vertical and horizontal cup-to-disc ratios, RNFL and NFL – thickness of the nerve fibre layer up to 2 mm from the centre to the disc.
