The imaging protocol involves a standardized approach that is identical for all patients. The process typically takes about 7 minutes for an experienced imager. The protocol includes images dedicated to the cornea (K image), angles (A image), horizontal and vertical cross sections (HV image), and the ciliary body (CB image). Additional images may be needed to capture focal pathology or posterior structures such as the lens (L image). The videos below will walk you through some sample images and an example imaging session.
