A picture is worth a thousand words

Spectral Domain 3D Optical Coherence Tomography has revolutionized the diagnostic imaging of the retina. This 3D tomogram of the retina shows an epiretinal membrane causing traction on the neurosensory retina at 5 points. Compared to conventional 2D tomograms, the 3D tomography gives a comprehensive view of the exact morphology of the retinal pathology. This not only has improved the diagnostic ability but also assists in planning complex vitreoretinal surgery.
