Optical coherence tomography imaging of the pediatric retina.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Optical coherence tomography is an increasingly important part of the retinal specialist's and general ophthalmologist's toolkit for diagnosing and managing retinal disease. This review summarizes the unique considerations and available imaging systems with which pediatric ophthalmologists should be familiar when attempting optical coherence tomography in children. Normal developmental changes in foveal and extrafoveal structure and the need for an established pediatric normative database of retinal thicknesses are reviewed. Finally, applications of optical coherence tomography imaging to selected representative pediatric retinal diseases are introduced as examples of how optical coherence tomography in children is furthering the diagnosis and management of vision-threatening retinal diseases.
