Paper Abstract

This paper demonstrates the clinical application of a multiplanar imaging system, which simultaneously acquires en-face (C-scan) OCT and corresponding confocal ophthalmoscopic images along with cross-sectional (B-scan) OCT at cursor designated locations on the confocal image. Advantages of the simultaneous OCT/confocal acquisition as well as the challenges of interpreting the C-scan OCT images are discussed. Variations in tissue inclination with respect to th coherence wave surface alters the sampling of structures within the depth in the retina, producing novel slice orientations which are often challenging to interpret. We evaluate for the first time the utility of C-scan OCT for a variety of pathologies including exudative ARMD, macular hole, central serous retinopathy, diabetic retinopathy, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy and macular pucker. Several remarkable observations of new aspects of clinical anatomy were noted. The versatility of selective capture of C-scan OCT images and B-scan OCT images at precise points on the confocal image affords the clinician a more complete and interactive tool for 3D imaging of retinal pathology.
