PURPOSE To assess the potential of a new diagnostic technique called optical coherence tomography (OCT) for diagnosing and monitoring macular holes. This technique is a novel noninvasive, noncontact imaging modality that produces high longitudinal resolution (10-micron) cross-sectional tomographs of ocular tissue. METHODS Optical coherence tomography is analogous to ultrasound except that optical rather than acoustic reflectivity is measured. Cross-sectional tomographs of the retina profiling… CONTINUE READING
