OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)
ISEC employs the Carl Zeiss Meditec Stratus OCT for detailed cross sectional imaging of the eye. The OCT incorporates optical coherence tomography technology to provide comprehensive imaging and measurement of glaucoma and retinal disease. Currently, Stratus OCT is the gold standard in vivo imaging device for the posterior segment and offers proven reproducibility for disease management.
The Stratus OCT provides real-time cross-sectional images and quantitative analysis of retinal features to optimize the diagnosis and monitoring of retinal disease and for enhanced pre- and post-therapy assessment. The device is beneficial for evaluation of cataract patients, pre- and post-operatively, and for the assessment of early signs of glaucoma and glaucomatous change.
Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer (RNFL) Analysis
Circular scans around the optic nerve head capture RNFL measurement of the peripapillary region. Analyses provide comparison of measurements to a normative database, demonstration of asymmetry and serial analysis.
Optic Nerve Head Analysis
Radial line scans through the optic disc create cross-sectional and topographical data. The key analysis parameters include cup-to-disc ratios and horizontal integrated rim volume.
Macular Thickness Analysis
Radial line scans provide cross-sectional images and analyses revealing retinal layers and macular condition. The change analysis feature illustrates change over time.
