Title When OCT May Obscure Pathology
Creator Steven A. Newman, M.D., University of Virginia School of Medicine
Subject Optical Coherence Tomography; Nerve Fiber Layer; Anatomic Study; Optic Nerve Pathology
Description The introduction of OCT as an anatomic study of the nerve fiber layer in vivo has been one of the greatest advances since the invention of the ophthalmoscope. This technology allows a reproducible quantitative assessment of the anatomy of the optic nerve in patients with evidence of optic nerve pathology. The potential for under calling optic atrophy due to the delay in nerve fiber layer thinning has been recognized. Less clear is the potential for disc swelling to mask progressive optic nerve pathology.
