Traditional means of monitoring patients with MS are increasingly inadequate. The director of our MS program discusses emerging technologies and research studies to explore their roles.
Ellipsoid zone mapping, a new image visualization/analysis platform on optical coherence tomography, may be an effective screening tool to identify subtle retinal changes indicative of toxicity from hydroxychloroquine treatment, Cleveland Clinic research indicates.
This short video demonstrates the value of OCT in clearing a vitreous hemorrhage, enhancing surgical safety and confirming surgical success.
With certain retinal tears of 6 clock hours or more, the retina can fold on itself. In this case, optical coherence tomography showed the foveal pit not only detached, but also folded over in a “tidal wave” configuration.

Cole Eye Institute continues its tradition of pioneering optical coherence tomography (OCT), now bringing the technique into the OR, investigating replacement of indocyanine green angiography and more.
We are entering an era of tremendous progress and promise in vitreoretinal surgery and enhanced surgical visualization.
Difluprednate is a well-tolerated and effective treatment for CME secondary to noninfectious uveitis. It also avoids the risks, costs and discomfort of alternative therapies such as intraocular injection or intraocular steroid implant.
A new technology allows visualization of paracentral acute middle maculopathy in pregnant patient.
Intraoperative OCT systems offer advantages over current OCT technology, allowing for rapid visualization of the impact of surgical maneuvers and immediate feedback on completion of surgical objectives.
As optical coherence tomography quickly evolves to more specific modalities with higher resolution and enhanced depth, its importance in clinical practice will grow, particularly with more portable units.
