The Ocular Coherence Tomograph (OCT) scan has revolutionised the field of eye health. It enables the non invasive, swift and painless imaging of the retina. Retinal fluid is the hallmark of pathology and the retinal layer in which the fluid lies, is associated with the type of pathology and certain disease states. Ainsley gives an overview of the principles of OCT, the various retinal layers expressed on an OCT scan and the four types of retinal fluid seen – pre, intra, sub and sub RPE fluid. Each type of fluid layer is explained using a patient case example. Referral and treatment options are discussed.
A self test is included at the end of the presentation.
