Surgical interventions for ocular diseases involve manipulations of semi-transparent structures in the eye, but limited
visualization of these tissue layers remains a critical barrier to developing novel surgical techniques and improving clinical
outcomes. We addressed limitations in image-guided ophthalmic microsurgery by using microscope-integrated
multimodal intraoperative swept-source spectrally encoded scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and optical coherence
tomography (iSS-SESLO-OCT). We previously demonstrated in vivo human ophthalmic imaging using SS-SESLO-OCT,
which enabled simultaneous acquisition of en face SESLO images with every OCT cross-section. Here, we integrated our
new 400 kHz iSS-SESLO-OCT, which used a buffered Axsun 1060 nm swept-source, with a surgical microscope and
TrueVision stereoscopic viewing system to provide image-based feedback. In vivo human imaging performance was
demonstrated on a healthy volunteer, and simulated surgical maneuvers were performed in ex vivo porcine eyes. Denselysampled
static volumes and volumes subsampled at 10 volumes-per-second were used to visualize tissue deformations and
surgical dynamics during corneal sweeps, compressions, and dissections, and retinal sweeps, compressions, and elevations.
En face SESLO images enabled orientation and co-registration with the widefield surgical microscope view while OCT
imaging enabled depth-resolved visualization of surgical instrument positions relative to anatomic structures-of-interest.
TrueVision heads-up display allowed for side-by-side viewing of the surgical field with SESLO and OCT previews for
real-time feedback, and we demonstrated novel integrated segmentation overlays for augmented-reality surgical guidance.
Integration of these complementary imaging modalities may benefit surgical outcomes by enabling real-time intraoperative
visualization of surgical plans, instrument positions, tissue deformations, and image-based surrogate biomarkers correlated
with completion of surgical goals.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
