Abstract
The ability to obtain reliable information on functional status of photoreceptor layer is essential for assessing vision impairment in patients with macular diseases. The reconstruction of three-dimensional retinal structure in vivo using Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography (Spectral OCT) became possible with a recent progress of the OCT field. Three-dimensional data collected by Spectral OCT devices comprise information on light intensity back-reflected from the junction between photoreceptor outer and inner segments (IS/OS) and thus can be used for evaluating photoreceptors impairment. In this paper, we introduced so called Spectral OCT reflectivity maps - a new method of selecting and displaying the spatial distribution of reflectivity of individual retinal layers. We analyzed the reflectivity of the IS/OS layer in various macular diseases. We have measured eyes of 49 patients with photoreceptor dysfunction in course of age-related macular degeneration, macular holes, central serous chorioretinopathy, acute zonal occult outer retinopathy, multiple evanescent white dot syndrome, acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy, drug-induced retinopathy and congenital disorders.
