Clinical Applications of Optical Coherence Tomography

Edited by: Jianhua Wang

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been introduced for more than 20 years and clinical applications using this technique greatly improve our ability in clinical diagnosis and research. Furthermore, the wide use of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) boosts the OCT field from structural imaging to vascular imaging, which provides an opportunity in quantitative analysis of both the ocular structure and vasculature.

This thematic series focuses on the latest applications of OCT and OCTA in clinical research and clinical diagnosis and aim to publish review articles and original research which are selected and edited by Prof. Jianhua Wang, who hopes that the series provides a focused collection of the latest discovery using OCT.

This series was published in Eye and Vision.

  1. There are two forms of system implementation of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in ophthalmic imaging, i.e., spectral domain (SD-) and swept source OCTA (SS-OCTA). The purpose of this paper is ...
