Swept Source OCT Technology & Its Potential Clinical Advantages
The 21st century witnessed a significant revolution in imaging techniques. The continuous innovation in this area has introduced us to many advanced technologies in the last two decades, which include TD-OCT (Time-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography), SD-OCT (Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography, and SS-OCT where SS stands for Swept Source- a type of laser incorporated in the device.
The #sweptsourceoct technology was first introduced to the clinical world around 2012, which had overshadowed its preceding technologies, namely Time-Domain OCT and Spectral-Domain OCT. The swept-source OCT has helped retina specialists and other surgeons to overcome the limitation of previous imaging technologies.
Let us understand the familiarity and similarity between Swept Source OCT and Spectral Domain OCT.
