    Novel imaging technology provides real-time volumetric visualization

    Las Vegas—Swept-source, microscope-integrated, ocular coherence tomography (SS-MIOCT) is a new investigational technology for real-time intraoperative imaging of the cornea and anterior segment, said Terry Kim, MD.

    The system, which is being developed by researchers at Duke University Eye Center, Durham, NC, provides live, depth-based anatomic information that is expected to be highly useful for monitoring and guiding surgical procedures, said Dr. Kim at Refractive Surgery 2015 during the American Academy of Ophthalmology annual meeting.

    “Ophthalmic surgical microscopes provide a top-down view of the surgical field while OCT imaging provides direct depth information,” said Dr. Kim, professor of ophthalmology, Duke University School of Medicine. “Microscope integration of OCT allows for simultaneous surgery and imaging.

    “SS-MIOCT adds a new dimension to the surgeon’s intraoperative view, and the results from preliminary evaluation of its clinical applications are very encouraging,” he added.
