Benchmarking OCT

The introduction of optical coherence tomography heralded a revolution in the clinical practice of ophthalmology, providing non-invasive, high resolution cross-sectional images of the retina, retinal nerve fiber layer and the optic nerve head, which has transformed the diagnosis and clinical management of patients with retinal disease and glaucoma. The technology continues to advance; the advent of swept-source light sources has enabled imaging of ocular structures, from the cornea to the choroid, and improvements in computational power and image analysis algorithms has enabled the advent of techniques like OCT angiography.
But what are your peers’ thoughts on the matter? What are they reading? What is OCT being used for in the clinic? Where is the research heading? We decided to benchmark all of the PubMed-listed literature on the topic. We asked:

  • What are the major topics for the field?
  • Which journals have the greatest impact?
  • How is the knowledge available online?
  • What type of articles are being published?
  • Who are the most prolific authors?

PubMed was searched for “optical coherence tomography” AND “eye” (for an ophthalmic focus), in humans (for a clinical focus), limited to the last 5 years. The data were analyzed in Microsoft Excel 2013.
