Birefringence Imaging of Necrotizing Scleritis

Our colleagues Masahiro Miura published a case report of necrotizing scleritis, which is an inflammation disease of sclera. The anterior eye of a patient was scanned by our anterior eye segment polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography prototype (AS-PS-OCT). The tissue selective imaging ability of AS-PS-OCT visualized the abnormal thinning of the eye. The details were published in Ophthalmic Surgery, Lasers and Imaging.
