    1. Comparison of Choroidal Vascularity Markers on Optical Coherence Tomography Using Two-Image Binarization Techniques

      Comparison of Choroidal Vascularity Markers on Optical Coherence Tomography Using Two-Image Binarization Techniques

      Purpose : To compare the agreement between optical coherence tomography (OCT)-based choroidal vascularity markers measured by two previously reported image binarization techniques. Methods : Spectral-domain OCT using enhanced-depth imaging was performed in 100 eyes from 52 normal subjects. Choroidal images were binarized to luminal area and stromal area using two different algorithms. Choroidal vascularity marker was defined as the ratio of luminal area to total choroidal area and they were termed “luminal/choroidal area ratio (L/C ratio)” and “choroidal vascularity index (CVI)” per the algorithm. The agreement between choroidal vascularity markers measured by the two techniques was compared using intraclass ...

    2. A Novel Optical Coherence Tomography Based Parameter in Patients With Exudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration

      A Novel Optical Coherence Tomography Based Parameter in Patients With Exudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration

      Purpose: To evaluate choroidal structural changes in exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) using choroidal vascularity index computed from image binarization on spectral domain optical coherence tomography with enhanced depth imaging. Methods: This prospective case series included 42 consecutive patients with unilateral exudative AMD. Choroidal images were segmented into luminal area and stromal area. Choroidal vascularity index was defined as the ratio of luminal area to total choroid area. Mean choroidal vascularity index and mean choroidal thickness between study and fellow eyes of the same patient with dry AMD were compared using Student's t -test. Results: There was a significantly ...

    3. Influence of scanning area on choroidal vascularity index measurement using optical coherence tomography

      Influence of scanning area on choroidal vascularity index measurement using optical coherence tomography

      Purpose Recently, choroidal vascularity index (CVI) is proposed as a novel tool to evaluate the choroidal vasculature. In this study, we investigate the impact of scanning area on CVI measurement using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) using enhanced depth imaging mode was performed in 30 eyes from 15 normal subjects. Three scanning areas were compared: dingle foveal scan; central macular scans [scan passing through central 1000 microns circle on Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) grid, inner circle]; and total macular cube scans. Binarization of OCT B-scans and segmentation of the binarized choroid layer ...

Choroidal vascularity index was defined as the ratio of luminal area to total choroid area. Mean choroidal vascularity index and mean choroidal thickness between study and fellow eyes of the same patient with dry AMD were compared using Student's t-test.

    5. Lamina Cribrosa Visibility using Optical Coherence Tomography: Comparison of Devices and Effects of Image Enhancement Techniques

      Lamina Cribrosa Visibility using Optical Coherence Tomography: Comparison of Devices and Effects of Image Enhancement Techniques

      Purpose: To compare the visibility of the lamina cribrosa (LC) in optic disc images acquired from 60 glaucoma and 60 control subjects using three optical coherence tomography (OCT) devices, with and without enhanced depth imaging (EDI) and adaptive compensation (AC). Methods: A horizontal B-scan was acquired through the centre of the disc using two spectral-domain (Spectralis and Cirrus; with and without EDI) and a swept-source (DRI) OCT. AC was applied post-acquisition to improve image quality. To assess LC visibility, four masked observers graded the 1,200 images in a randomised sequence. The anterior LC was graded from 0 to 4 ...
