Imaging techniques are useful in determining the proper stage of the disease, follow-up after treatment, and, as highlighted in recent times, in predicting prognosis and prediction.

The main purpose of imaging techniques stands Imaging plays an important role in modern medicine. Modern imaging techniques – including X-rays, ultrasound, CT scans, and MRI – can show structures inside your body in great detail.

Advanced imaging at the Fullerton Eye Institute falls into three main categories:

  1. Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT

Optical coherence tomography, or OCT, is an imaging method used to generate a picture of the back of your eye, called your retina. The noninvasive method produces an image by measuring the amount of a dim red light that reflects off of your retina and optic nerve.

  • Corneal Topography

Corneal topography is a computer-assisted diagnostic tool. Corneal topography is a computer-assisted diagnostic tool that creates a three-dimensional map of the surface curvature of the cornea. The cornea (the front window of the eye) is responsible for about 70 percent of the eye’s focusing power.

  • Visual Field Testing

A visual field test measures how far the eye sees in any direction without moving and how sensitive the vision is in different parts of the visual field. This helps doctors to find certain types of injuries and diseases, like glaucoma

Medical imaging is crucial in a variety of medical settings and at all major levels of health care. The use of diagnostic imaging services is essential in confirming, assessing, and documenting the course of many diseases and response to treatment.
