Combined adaptive optics - Optical coherence tomography and adaptive optics - Scanning laser ophthalmoscopy system for retinal imaging
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.1117/12.809419
We describe a novel instrument that combines adaptive optics - Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (AO-OCT) with an adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscope (AO-SLO). Both systems share a common AO sub-system and vertical scanner to permit simultaneous acquisition of retinal images from both OCT and SLO. One of the benefits of combining OCT with SLO includes automatic co-registration between the two imaging modalities and potential for correcting lateral and transversal eye motion resulting in motion artifact-free volumetric retinal imaging. Results of using this system for eye model imaging are presented. Feasibility for clinical application is briefly discussed as well as potential further improvements of the current system. © 2009 SPIE.
