Original article is on August 13, 2008

The following our paper is now officially published in Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science (IOVS).

Y. Yasuno, M. Miura, K. Kawana, S. Makita, M. Sato, F. Okamoto, M. Yamanari, T. Iwasaki, T. Yatagai, and T. Oshika, "Visualization of Sub-retinal Pigment Epithelium Morphologies of Exudative Macular Diseases by High-Penetration Optical Coherence Tomography," Inv. Ophthalmol. Vis. Sci. 50, 405-513 (2009).

This paper demonstrates the application of new OCT with one-micrometer probe wavelength (high-penetration OCT; HP-OCT) to age-related macular degeneration. 14 eyes were involved in this study, and the clinical utility of HP-OCT was discussed. Preliminary results which suggest higher robustness of HP-OCT to cataract than standard OCT were also shown. The paper is available on the journal web site (IOVS).
