Ocular coherence tomography has revolutionised the way clinicians diagnose pathology. By seeing inside the layers of the retina it is possible to determine the health of the eye and decide which treatment would be most suitable. A single scan shows a small section of retina and it can be difficult to visualise how this correlates to its positioning within the eye.
This OCT of the orbit is constructed using multiple OCT scans to show the anatomy of the eye and the positioning of the fovea (the small dip to the right of the image). By using the same false colour scheme used in OCT technology the image gives the impression of a full orbit scan.
This artwork has been used to illustrate open angle glaucoma and give trainees a better understanding of the anatomy of the eye.
