Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Ophthalmic ultrasound uses sound waves to reflect images off the surfaces of the eye such as the retina. OCT uses light waves in a similar fashion, only with a resolution that is several hundred times greater. This non-invasive imaging technique generates real time cross-sectional imagery of ocular tissues. It has completely revolutionized the way retina specialists diagnose, treat, and monitor diseases such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. At Retina Group of New England, we specialize in using the most cutting-edge software and imaging devices, including Heidelberg Spectralis.
