About this book

Recent advances in ophthalmic imaging technology have revolutionized fundus examination and contributed significantly in elucidating the pathophysiology of retinal diseases and improving their diagnosis and treatment. It is therefore fitting that this detailed full-color textbook in the Medical Retina series is devoted to ocular imaging. The volume reviews in detail the role of both established and novel forms of imaging, and is designed to be of benefit to clinicians and researchers alike. All of the chapters have been written by internationally recognized experts at the forefront of their fields. The result is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of retinal imaging that should prove informative and useful for everyone interested in the retina. Topics include: •Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) of macular diseases •Comparison of OCT equipment •Simultaneous SD-OCT and confocal SLO imaging •Ultra-widefield imaging •Autofluorescence imaging •Near-infrared imaging •Macular pigment imaging •Metabolic mapping •Imaging of the choroid •Imaging the vitreous and the vitreoretinal interface with SD-OCT •New developments in OCT technology •Molecular imaging

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book does an outstanding job of describing established and new forms of retinal imaging, covering both acquisition and interpretation, information useful for clinicians as well as researchers. … useful for those at all levels interested in applications of retinal imaging, from students and residents to experienced retina specialists. … The figures and photographs illustrate important points well, and tables provide high-yield information in a easy to understand format. This would make an excellent addition to the library of anyone interested in retinal imaging.” (Sonia Mehta, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2010)

“The intended audience for Medical Retina consists of residents, clinicians, and basic science investigators. This particular volume of Medical Retina subtitled Focus on Retinal Imaging is testimony to the seminal advances made in retinal imaging; in particular scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO) and optical low-coherence optical tomography (OCT). … each chapter contains the key and up-to-date in-text citations to the end of chapter References which lists the complete citation including the first and the last pages. A detailed index completed the book.” (Barry R. Masters, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 249 (11), 2011)

“The book acts as a bridging text enabling the reader know of the recent advances and original research which can be used in day to day practice. … text is laid out in a nice way. Each chapter starts with the core messages and gives a summary for clinicians. … I would recommend this book not only for ophthalmologists involved in retina service … but also for other ophthalmologists who would like to unravel the maze of the recent advances in the imaging of retina.” (Atul Varma, Eye News, February/March, 2011)
