Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma

Glaucoma follow-up is highly dependent upon imaging, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) has taken a prominent role.
Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma: A Practical Guide (Springer), edited by Ahmet Akman et al, provides a full-fledged introduction and guide to the clinical use of OCT for managing patients with glaucoma.
I learned a lot from Part II: How to Interpret OCT Results. Many examples are shown of findings in glaucomatous eyes with varying stages of severity, as well as scans with artifacts and anatomical variations. OCT analysis of non-glaucomatous optic neuropathies, as well as the evaluation of progression, are covered.
This book is appropriate for general ophthalmologists, glaucoma fellows and anyone looking to incorporate OCT into their glaucoma practice.
