Optical coherence tomography (OCT), an emerging noninvasive imaging modality, recently received category III Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes from the American Medical Association, enabling tracking of its use in the medical community. In this article, we review OCT imaging and its variant systems, discussing its applications and limitations for clinical use. Future directions of OCT technology and goals for obtaining category I CPT codes and reimbursement also are discussed.

To investigate malignant hypertension ocular lesions with swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A).
To evaluate the relationship between lamellar capillary nonperfusion on optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) images and neuroglial changes on structural optical coherence tomography (OCT) i...
This case report describes a 19-year-old Caucasian man presented with decreased visual acuity in the right eye for 3 months. Dilated funds exam revealed optic disk pit associated with serous macular d...
To investigate the utility of new wide-field optical coherence tomography (OCT) device in the evaluation of mid and far retinal periphery and to show its feasibility and advantages in clinical practic...
The subtype of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) influences the choice of treatment. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging tool and recent development of angiographic version of OCT ha...
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a relatively new imaging technique in ophthalmology. This clear and documented imaging identified new diseases/ observations that were not previously ...
Objectives: 1. To assess the tolerability of performing optical coherence tomography and/or optical spectroscopy in patients with acute oral mucositis. 2. To determine the...
Information will be collected prospectively in about 3,000 patients having Optical Coherence Tomography during cardiac catheterization. Subjects will be initially enrolled at sites outsid...
The purpose of this research is to evaluate optical coherence tomography (OCT) and FDA approved device used to image diseases of the eye. The ultra-high resolution OCT is a non-significan...
All comer registry who had undergone intravascular optical coherence tomography during and/or after coronary intervention.
An imaging method using LASERS that is used for mapping subsurface structure. When a reflective site in the sample is at the same optical path length (coherence) as the reference mirror, the detector observes interference fringes.
The use of light interaction (scattering, absorption, and fluorescence) with biological tissue to obtain morphologically based information. It includes measuring inherent tissue optical properties such as scattering, absorption, and autofluorescence; or optical properties of exogenous targeted fluorescent molecular probes such as those used in optical MOLECULAR IMAGING, or nontargeted optical CONTRAST AGENTS.
An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.
An imaging technique that combines a POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) scanner and a CT X RAY scanner. This establishes a precise anatomic localization in the same session.
Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.
