A diagnostic imaging technique for optic pathway tumours

The authors discuss the difficult clinical scenario of patients with deteriorating visual function and an optic pathway lesion. The morbidity associated with biopsy means a highly sensitive and specific imaging technique would be of great value. The authors describe the...

Anterior segment imaging: a photographer’s view

My name is Rosalyn Painter and I work within the vision science and ophthalmic imaging team at Bristol Eye Hospital, where we cover all aspects of imaging within the hospital, including fluorescein angiograms, fundus photography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), slit-lamp...

Diagnostic accuracy of enhanced depth imaging OCT in children

The authors present the findings of a retrospective cross-sectional case series. Cases were identified using a treatment register having been evaluated in a set one-year period. Two ophthalmologists acted as masked image examiners for enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography...

The treachery of images – making sense of OCT imaging

In 1929 Belgian surrealist Rene Magritte produced his painting La Trahison des Images. It depicted an old fashioned pipe for smoking tobacco and underneath were the words “ceci n’est pas une pipe”, this is not a pipe. You may wonder...

Anterior segment OCT imaging in cases of episcleritis and scleritis

The purpose of this study was to determine whether it is feasible to obtain good-quality images with anterior segment OCT (AS-OCT) in patients with episcleral or scleral inflammation located anterior to the equator, and whether this technique is able to...

OCT-A imaging in Grave’s orbitopathy and orbital decompression

In this case series of 12 patients and 24 orbits, the authors describe the changes in the optic nerve and peripapillary blood vessel density in patients with moderate to severe Grave’s Orbitopathy (GO) undergoing orbital decompression. The patients undergoing orbital...

Transferring imaging from primary to secondary care (part 2)

Transferring clinical imaging from high street optometrists to secondary care is an increasingly requested option, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. A wide variety of solutions exist to allow this, each with their own merits and shortcomings. In...

The TOPCON / OIA Imaging Competition and a brief history of ophthalmic photography

We hope you like and appreciate the image forming the cover of the June/July 2021 edition of Eye News. The Ophthalmic Imaging Association (OIA) was honoured to have been invited to submit a series of images from the winners of...

University of Gloucestershire launches first of its kind ophthalmic imaging degree

Ophthalmic science is a dynamic and constantly evolving profession, with ophthalmic imagers / technicians fundamental to the smooth and efficient running of ophthalmology departments. Traditionally, as the role has developed, ophthalmic imagers have come from a variety of backgrounds, finding...

Colour Doppler imaging before and after orbital decompression in thyroid eye disease

In this prospective, uncontrolled study euthyroid patients with moderate to severe inactive thyroid eye disease underwent colour Doppler imaging before and after orbital decompression. Patients with dysthyroid optic neuropathy, corneal breakdown, systemic disease (diabetes, cerebrovascular accident, cardiovascular and peripheral vascular...

What’s next in retinal imaging? Faster, deeper and full-on

Fast-evolving technological leaps are opening the way toward clinically useful ocular coherence angiography, generating 3-dimensional microvasculature maps without intravenous dye injection, as well as whole-eye imaging, handheld patient-operated optical coherence tomography (OCT) devices and, for challenging vitreoretinal procedures, integrated intraoperative...
