Professor Paulo E. Stanga, MD, consultant ophthalmologist, vitreoretinal surgeon, and professor of ophthalmology and retinal regeneration at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital in Manchester, England, describes the importance of bringing optical coherence tomography (OCT) into the OR. Professor Stanga began using OCT in 1998, and he now feels that OCT is strongly linked with Topcon, as Topcon was a pioneer in the field, releasing the first system with 3D rendering software in 2006. In 2012, Topcon introduced swept source OCT technology with the DRI OCT-1 Atlantis.

DRI OCT-1 Atlantis features include longer wavelengths, faster scanning, infared light, and increased resolution to provide image structures in vivo. Benefits of the new technology are better scanning of the back of the eye, visualization of the choroid and sclera, uniform image quality, minimal eye movement, better penetration through opaque media, and the ability to clinically document and assess the corticous vitreous.
