Optical coherence tomography in multiple sclerosis and neurologic disorders
Optical coherence tomography is a high-resolution, noninvasive imaging technique used to measure retinal nerve fiber layer thickness and macular volume. Because the retina is a direct projection of the CNS, this technique can quantitate certain neurodegenerative pathologies. It is utilized to assist with the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and to distinguish MS from other demyelinating diseases, and has become a standard metric or biomarker for multiple sclerosis clinical trials.
