Imaging in Retinal Diseases
Our ocular imaging research program employs a variety of ocular imaging technologies including optical coherence tomography (OCT) and scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO) across multiple species including mice, nonhuman primates, and human patients. Our past research characterized the so-called suprachoroidal space (a potential space between the choroid and sclera) which may be involved in retinal disease pathogenesis, and possibly a novel route for drug delivery. We are also currently exploring the role of choroidal anatomy in retinal conditions, use of intraoperative OCT in retinal surgery, and utility of imaging biomarkers as prognostic markers. The UC Davis Reading Center also provides comprehensive services for analyzing ophthalmic images from clinical trials.
