Infants’ eye scan

The examination of the posterior segment of the eye using Hand-Held Optical Coherence Tomography (HH-OCT) from the patients’ perspective. The HH-OCT uses infrared to capture a series of high resolution cross-sectional images of the retina (B-scans) which, when combined, may contribute to a single volumetric scan.

The screen in the photograph demonstrates a cross-sectional scan of an individual’s retina; including the optic nerve head and the fovea, both of which are relevant anatomical structures important for ophthalmological clinical analysis. The images obtained from HH-OCT have contributed to improved diagnosis and a greater understanding of many pediatric ophthalmological conditions.
