Giuseppe Lo Giudice obtained an MD from the University of Messina, Italy. He completed his ophthalmological residency at the Department of Ophthalmology, University of Padua, Italy, after residency training. He was a fellow in the Ophthalmology Department of the Gironcoli Ophthalmic Center, Italy from 2002 to 2004. He was an assistant in ophthalmology at Conegliano Hospital Conegliano, Italy from 2004 to 2007. Since 2007, Dr. Lo Giudice has been a surgeon and vice director at San Antonio Hospital, University of Padua. His major fields of interest are treatments for retinal diseases (proliferative retinopathies, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy) and vitreoretinal surgery. He has more than 25 years of experience in clinical research as well as in clinical trials and laboratory research. He performed more than 9000 anterior segment surgeries (cataract surgery, glaucoma surgery, corneal transplantation) in the last 5 years and more than 3000 vitreoretinal surgeries for several vitreoretinal diseases (ocular trauma, complicated cataract surgery, retinal pucker, retinal detachment, and vitreoretinal proliferative disease) in the last 3 years.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has dramatically revolutionized ophthalmology in the clinical setting. It has become an indispensable tool for ophthalmologists, enabling them to visualize and diagnose several different ocular diseases. With the advent of OCT, the diagnosis and management of ocular diseases have become even more accurate, efficient, and patient friendly. A new generation of OCT technology with increased resolution and speed has been developed, achieving in vivo optical biopsy (i.e., visualization of tissue architectural morphology in situ and in real-time). Functional extensions of OCT technology enable noninvasive, depth-resolved functional assessment and tissue imaging. This comprehensive and richly illustrated guide enables the reader to identify the anatomy and ophthalmic pathologies illustrated by OCT. It is the most up-to-date book on OCT. All the major pathological areas of ophthalmology are covered, including macular degeneration, uveitis, glaucoma, vascular diseases, and glaucoma abnormalities, as well as other hot topics.
