Paper Abstract

Through biomedical engineering partnerships, our group has been able to develop and translate optical coherence tomography (OCT), an imaging tool conventionally used in the “eye imaging suite”, for bedside use in unstable infants or for intraoperative guidance for the ophthalmic surgeon. In both arenas, image-guidance is transforming patient care. In the nursery, this has enabled assessment of retinal development, markers of injury and a determination of their relationship to brain function. In surgery, efficient application of an investigational high-speed swept-source OCT into our surgical armamentarium provides unique guidance in simple and complex cases, is improving our understanding of microsurgical pathologies, and is enabling new and improved surgical techniques.
