Belin (ophthalmology and vision science, U. of Arizona) et al. bring together a group of ophthalmologists and individuals working in artificial intelligence and corneal analysis in Brazil, the US, India, Dubai, Asia, and Germany for 18 chapters on the use of elevation based corneal topography or tomography to look at the cornea, its structure, shape, and performance, with a focus on the OCULUS Pentacam system. They detail the evolution of topographic/tomographic imaging, how elevation data is displayed, the reference surface, setup and screening guidelines, normative data for the Oculus Pentacam, comprehensive pachymetric evaluation, keratoconus/ectasia detection, and applications of artificial intelligence techniques for improving tomographic screening for ectasia. They also discuss an atlas of elevation topography, the BESSt 2 formula for intraocular lens calculation (IOL), evaluation of corneal optical quality for premium IOLs with the Pentacam HR, other displays, and the use of the Pentacam in a cataract practice. This edition has been updated and new chapters have been added to reflect the expanded clinical use of Scheimpflug imaging. There is no index.
