OCT Biomarkers of Macular Disorders: From Theory to Practice

The advancement in optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology in the recent years has allowed the identification of novel biomarkers for various macular disorders; such biomarkers serve diagnostic and predictive roles. The availability of higher resolution OCT scans and routine OCT acquisition have aided both the characterization and quantification of OCT signs. In that regard, multiple descriptive terminologies for novel OCT signs emerge in the literature on a regular basis, changing the face of medical retina practice every so often.

While exponential growth in the number of research articles could be appreciated in the literature over the past decade, most articles deal with the description and incidence of these biomarkers. Limited data exist on their utilization in clinical practice, their predictive role, or their implications for patient education and therapeutic choices.

This Article Collection aims to provide a platform for authors who conduct research on the practical application of novel OCT signs and their utilization in clinical practice. Disorders of interest include but are not limited to: age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular disorders, uveitic macular disorders, macular dystrophies, vitreomacular interface anomalies, degenerative retinal conditions, traumatic maculopathy, and preoperative patient evaluation.
