19 February 2009 Cyclic reconstruction of 4D retinal blood flow with pulse synchronization
Author Affiliations +
Doppler OCT systems allow nowadays to visualize quantitative and qualitative angiographic maps of retinal tissue. We equipped the instrument with a pulse oximeter and recorded the pulse synchronously with the resonant Doppler flow data. Recombination of tomograms according to the heart beat cycles yields full volumes for each cycle instant. We believe such multi-dimensional functional information and the ability to monitor dynamic processes over time to open exciting perspectives that ultimately contribute to a better understanding of retinal physiology and patho-physiology in-vivo.
