Purpose: A prototype combined OCT / SLO machine (OTI, Toronto, Canada) that performs simultaneous optical coherence tomography and scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, also can be used to display angiographic images. These images can be cross correlated at precise pixel-to-pixel points with both the SLO and OCT images. Methods: Patients were studied angiographically with various retinal disorders. These patients were imaged with the prototype OCT/ SLO machine as well. Results: The preliminary images suggest that a novel way of displaying diagnostic images is both possible and accurate. In addition, topographic and volumetric data can be derived directly from the display. Conclusions: High resolution combined OCT / SLO imaging is possible using a prototype machine manufactured by OTI, Inc. In addition, the prototype can cross-correlate the OCT / SLO images with angiographic images. This combination of acquisition, display, and data analysis is novel and unique. The future applications of this prototype appear promising, important, and expansive.
