Everyday OCT: A Handbook for Clinicians and Technicians
Everyday OCT: A Handbook for Clinicians and Technicians is a user-friendly, practical reference that provides all of the information eyecare professionals need to know about the principles, applications, and interpretations of optical coherence tomography.
Authorities on OCT technology and imaging, Dr. Joel S. Schuman, Dr. Carmen A. Puliafito, and Dr. James G. Fujimoto review OCT and provide both the beginning and advanced user with expert pearls on how to effectively perform and interpret OCT imaging. Everyday OCT contains a wealth of technical information about the principles of operating the Stratus OCTTM and the main components of this medical diagnostic imaging technology.
Everyday OCT explains how to:
- Set up and employ OCT technology
- Select and facilitate scans
- Ensure and assess the quality of scans
- Accurately interpret OCT images
- Over 200 color images
- Tips and tricks for OCT image acquisition and interpretation
- Case studies of OCT application in retinal diseases, glaucoma, and neuro-ophthalmology
The clear and concise format combined with a detailed description of the technology and instructions for successful employment and interpretation make Everyday OCT: A Handbook for Clinicians and Technicians the ideal resource for eyecare professionals looking to develop or enhance their working knowledge of OCT technology.

This handbook is clearly designed to help operate, trouble shoot and give information on commonly visualized pathological states on optical coherence tomography (OCT). . . The book is light and compact and can be easily carried around. Since it is designed to mostly help in operating the instrument, it is an ideal book for technicians and photographers who are able to find the resource they are looking for, given that the book only has three clearly defined chapters. It is also useful for clinicians who are new to the technology in understanding the working of OCT and helps in interpreting disease states. . . In summary, Everyday OCT: A Handbook for Clinicians and Technicians beholds its name in being a compact manual for the setup, operation, and interpreting OCT images.

"The photographs and illustrations, which are of excellent quality, complement the text. . . I anticipate that this handbook will be useful to both technicians and physicians who use OCT. The book should be kept next to the OCT for reference where it can be used every day."
