Title:
Investigation of selective retina treatment (SRT) by means of 8 ns laser pulses in a rabbit model. 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND: It has been shown that selective retina treatment (SRT) using a train of 1.7 microseconds laser pulses allows selective damage of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) while sparing the adjacent photoreceptors and thus avoiding laser scotoma. It was the purpose of this work to investigate SRT laser effects with Q-switched pulses of only 8 nanoseconds in duration by evaluating the angiographic and ophthalmoscopic damage thresholds and the damage range by histology in a rabbit model.
