Spectral OCT by Heidelberg Engineering
The optical coherence tomography (OCT)
is a contactless medical imaging technology that is comparable to sonography. In an OCT the light reflected by different layers of the retina is used to generate high-resolution two-dimensional cross-sections, and three-dimensional images of the eye. This can demonstrate very well whether the vitreous humor has detached from the retina. Especially for patients up to 45 years this can be of great importance for the indication of the YAG laser vitreolysis.
