This book provides an illustrated guide to peripheral retinal degenerations and the role of spectral domain coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in diagnosis and treatment. The book discusses 73 clinical cases and gives detailed information on the principles of SD-OCT and its application in the imaging of peripheral retina.
Peripheral Retinal Degenerations: Optical Coherence Tomography and Retinal Laser Coagulation, 2nd edition, discusses a broad range of retinal pathologies such as chorioretinal degenerations, posterior vitreous detachment, vitreoretinal adhesions and tractions and includes a plethora of high-quality clinical images throughout. Ophthalmologists and retinal specialists will find this updated edition to be the perfect didactic resource for furthering skills and knowledge in this clinical area.
"This atlas describes peripheral retinal degeneration in detail and the mechanisms leading to posterior vitreous detachments and retinal detachments. . This is a very useful addition to the understanding of peripheral retinal degenerations. In this second edition, the authors have brilliantly shown the possibility and necessity of using OCT technology beyond the central macular region. It is a very useful book for retinal practitioners and residents and researchers." (Diana V. Do, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2017)
