The article offers information on the evaluation of a prototype three-dimensional Fourier domain optical coherence tomographer (3D-OCT) to be used in patients with retinal diseases. According to researchers from the Digital Angiography Reading Center in New York, the 3D-OCT provides useful imaging of retinal diseases in cross-sectional and 3D volumetric modes. It also offers benefits of 3D imaging which enables physician to create a point-to-point correlation between OCT findings and pathology.
