2015-24: The exploratory use of an experimental flow-OCT instrument in chorioretinal diseases
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) has become the dominant imaging modality for the posterior eye. An extension to conventional, structural OCT is the analysis of phase shifts in the reflected light from the chorioretinal complex to determine depth-resolved blood flow. Such Doppler-OCT, or flow-OCT, is a promising way towards improved diagnostics for a wide range of ophthalmic conditions that affect perfusion and blood flow in the retina or choroid. Our aim is to optimize, explore and describe the usability of Doppler-OCT to determine perfusion and blood flow in normal eyes and eyes with conditions that affect perfusion or blood flow in the retina or choroid.
