1. Measurement of total blood flow in the normal human retina using Doppler Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography

    Aim: To measure total retinal blood flow in normal human eyes using Doppler Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT). Methods: 10 normal people aged 35 to 69 years were measured for the right eye using Doppler FD-OCT. Double circular scans around the optic nerve heads were used. Four pairs of circular scans that transected all retinal branch vessels were completed in 2 seconds. Total retinal blood flow was obtained by summing the flows in the branch veins. Measurements from the eight scans were averaged. Veins with diameters > 33 ┬Ám were taken into account. Results: Total retinal blood flow could be measured ...
