Publication: OCT guided surgery of cornea

Hideki Mori recently published a paper of 3D OCT guided phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) for the treatment of granular corneal dystrophy. In this paper, he demonstrated a simulation of laser surgery of corneal dystrophy based on 3D OCT volume. This simulation was compared to the result of real PTK surgery and they showed a good agreement.
