Intraoperative OCT in Retinal Procedures

Learn how surgeons can make more informed decisions during complex retinal procedures using microscope-integrated optical coherence tomography


The surgical team at Retina Clinic in São Paulo, Brazil, has been using microscope-integrated intraoperative OCT for the past year. In their white paper “Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography: Clinical Experience of Retinal Procedures”, they provide insight into cases of complex retinal surgery in which OCT has provided helpful additional information which has on occasion been crucial for the decisions taken by the surgeon.

Not only does the paper highlight the benefits of OCT during procedures, but also does it put microscope-integrated OCT into perspective, contrasting it with former OCT solutions.
