Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging of Retinal Diseases in Singapore

Mandeep Singh, MRCSEd; Caroline K. L. Chee, FRCSEd

Abstract

ABSTRACT

In this retrospective case series, the authors reviewed cases of patients with macular disorders whose eyes had been imaged using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) (Cirrus HD-OCT; Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., Dublin, CA). SD-OCT images were obtained from patients with a variety of ocular conditions attending a tertiary retinal clinic in Singapore from August 2007 to December 2007, according to standardized protocols. Images of 428 eyes from 301 patients were reviewed. Ocular diagnoses included diabetic macular edema, exudative age-related macular degeneration, central serous chorioretinopathy, cystoid macular edema, retinal vein and artery occlusions, infective chorioretinitis, and others. The authors present four cases of particular interest to illustrate how SD-OCT was useful in complementing the clinician’s assessment of macular disease.
