Paper Abstract

The dual beam version of optical coherence topography can be used for noninvasive, high-resolution imaging of the human eye fundus, enabling in vivo visualization of retinal morphology as well as accurate quantification of the thickness profiles of its layers. Interferometric fundus signals—optical A-scans—and retinal tomograms of patients with glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration are compared with those of healthy, normal subjects to elucidate the origin of the signal peaks detected and to investigate and interpret the retinal microstructures contained in the cross-sectional images.
