2008-02: High resolution 1050 nm wavelenght centered spectral domain 3D Optical Coherence Tomography in Macualr diseases.
Investigator Initiated Research
Inclusion stopped on 3-3-2015
In Many retinal diseases, a significant loss of vision is caused either by choroidal neovascularization, or by pigment epithelium detachment. Because both processes occur underneath the RPE-layer, they are only partially visible by current OCT devices. This study aims to improve imaging by OCT of the sub-RPE layer. Patients with various macular disorders will be included, among whom a subgroup of patients due for autologous RPE/choroid graft. The general endpoint is the correlation of clinical outcome parameters for structural data obtained with conventional imaging techniques and 1050 nm OCT.
