    Customized Slab-Segmentation Method for Projection-Artifact Elimination in Best Vitelliform Macular Dystrophy: A Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Study

    Purpose: To assess the efficacy of customized slab segmentation in eliminating projection artifacts in swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) images of Best vitelliform macular dystrophy (BVMD). Methods: Prospective case series including different stages of BVMD. We analyzed SS-OCTA images for flow signals in the outer retina and coregistered B-scan images for distortion of the segmentation slabs defining the outer retina. We applied a customized method for slab realignment whenever BVMD lesions produced distortion of the slabs. Afterward, we checked the images to determine whether the previously noted flow signal had persisted or disappeared, described as “true flow” or “pseudoflow ...
