Abstract

Microscope-Integrated OCT Feasibility and Utility With the EnFocus System in the DISCOVER Study

This article published in the journal OSLI Retina discusses the findings of the latest phase of the DISCOVER study relating specifically to the EnFocus instrasurgical OCT system from Leica. One of the findings of this phase of the study was that “in membrane peeling procedures, intraoperative OCT findings were discordant from the surgeon's initial impression in seven of 20 cases (35%).” (Runkle, Sunil et al, 2017).

The full title of the DISCOVER study is the Determination of feasibility of Intraoperative Spectral domain microscope combined/integrated OCT Visualization during En face Retinal and ophthalmic surgery. The primary purpose as described in the official documentation is “To assess feasibility of microscope-integrated intraoperative OCT” and secondarily “To assess the utility of microscope-integrated intraoperative OCT on surgical decision-making.” (clinicaltrials.gov, 2015)

The DISCOVER study is being undertaken at the Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, with Justis P. Ehlers, M.D. as Principal Investigator.
