Seeing Isn’t Believing: Spatial Accuracy in OCT

OCT is widely used throughout ophthalmology. One of the fundamental premises is that the on-screen OCT image is an accurate representation of the eye that was imaged. However, because of various distortions, the on-screen image is not an accurate spatial “copy” of the eye. This has consequences for quantitative measurements made from the OCT image of the eye. In this seminar, we will discuss the sources of distortion, their effects on clinical measurements, and ways to increase the accuracy of OCT representations of the eye.
