Vitreo-papillary Traction as an Entity Identified by Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).

2018-03-15 00:13:10 | BioPortfolio


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 known.


In ophthalmology vitreo-macular adhesion, vitreo-macular traction and posterior vitreous detachment were recognized entities for a long time. On the other hand vitreo-papillary adhesion/ traction is a fairly new concept in ophthalmology that became known after the use of OCT in ophthalmology imaging. Reasons, effects and ways of treatment of vitreo-papillary traction will take some time to evolve. The case study in which this traction was documented was initiated by an observation of a persistent, tiny single retinal hemorrhage above the optic disc of an eye. The patient was completely asymptomatic because of the vitreo-papillary traction but the OCT documentation of the case was so clear and striking.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
