Time domain vs. spectral domain in the measurement of the optic nerve head

The authors describe a prospective study of 40 participants (20 healthy and 20 with glaucoma) enrolled to compare the measurements of the optic nerve head (ONH) parameters given by time domain (TD) and spectral domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT)....

Nerve head in healthy humans using OCT-angiography

Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a recent, dyeless, and noninvasive imaging technique for evaluating depth-resolved vascular status by capturing the dynamic motion of the erythrocytes. It provides the flow map of major vessels and capillary plexuses separately in different...
