    1. Comparison of Peripapillary Vessel Density of Acute Nonarteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy and Other Optic Neuropathies With Disc Swelling Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography: A Pilot Study

      Comparison of Peripapillary Vessel Density of Acute Nonarteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy and Other Optic Neuropathies With Disc Swelling Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography: A Pilot Study

      Background: The purpose of this study is to quantitatively compare the peripapillary vessel density (PPVD), measured with optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A), between acute nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) and other causes of disc swelling ("others"). Methods: In this prospective comparative case series, patients with unilateral disc swelling due to acute NAION (n = 7) and "others" (n = 7) underwent OCT-A scanning of the optic nerve head with a swept-source OCT (Triton DRI-OCT), in addition to functional assessment. OCT-A images were analyzed using an automated customized MATLAB program. Comparison was made between total and 6 sectoral PPVD (radial peripapillary capillary ...

    2. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Metrics Predict Progression of Diabetic Retinopathy and Development of Diabetic Macular Edema: A Prospective Study

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Metrics Predict Progression of Diabetic Retinopathy and Development of Diabetic Macular Edema: A Prospective Study

      Purpose To prospectively determine the relationship of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) metrics to diabetic retinopathy (DR) progression and development of diabetic macular edema (DME). Design: Prospective, observational study. Participants Two hundred and five eyes from 129 patients with diabetes mellitus followed up for at least 2 years. Methods All subjects underwent OCTA with a swept-source OCT (DRI-OCT Triton, Topcon, Inc, Tokyo, Japan). Individual OCTA images of superficial capillary plexus (SCP) and deep capillary plexus (DCP) were generated by IMAGEnet6. After quality check, automated measurements of foveal avascular zone (FAZ) area, FAZ circularity, vessel density (VD) and fractal dimension (FD ...

    3. The Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in the Acute Management of Neuro-Ophthalmic Diseases

      The Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in the Acute Management of Neuro-Ophthalmic Diseases

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can provide highspeed and high-resolution images of the anatomical structures of the optic nerve head and macula. However, in neuro-ophthalmic conditions that present acutely, structural changes lag functional deficits, and the role of OCT in the acute setting has been challenged. This review aims to summarize the recent literature and evidence supporting the use of OCT in the acute management of some common neuro-ophthalmic scenarios, including the differential diagnosis of optic disc swelling, and in patients with suspected papilledema, optic neuritis, ischemic optic neuropathies, and Leber hereditary optic neuropathy. The limitations of OCT are also discussed.

    4. Relationship of intercapillary area with visual acuity in diabetes mellitus: an optical coherence tomography angiography study

      Relationship of intercapillary area with visual acuity in diabetes mellitus: an optical coherence tomography angiography study

      Aim To examine the correlation of best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) with intercapillary area (ICA) measured from optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) in patients with diabetes, and to compare the strength of associations between BCVA with ICA and other OCT-A metrics. Methods A cross-sectional study involved 447 eyes from 299 patients with diabetes. All participants underwent OCT-A with a swept-source OCT (Triton DRI-OCT, Topcon, Tokyo, Japan). An automated customised MATLAB programme was used to quantify ICA (the mean of the 10 largest areas including foveal avascular zone (FAZ) area (ICA10_FAZ) and excluding FAZ area (ICA10_excFAZ)) and other OCT-A metrics (FAZ area ...

    5. The use of optical coherence tomography in neuro-ophthalmology

      The use of optical coherence tomography in neuro-ophthalmology

      Purpose of review In the last decade, with the advances of optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology, different imaging protocols and analysis algorithms have been introduced to maximize the potential of this diagnostic tool in the evaluation of different eye diseases. This review aims to provide an update on these additional features, with respect to the management of a diverse range of neuro-ophthalmologic conditions. Recent findings Macular ganglion cell complex (mGCC) analysis has been shown to be superior to peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL) analysis in certain settings, such as differentiating Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy from functional visual loss ...

    6. Quantitative assessment of optic nerve head morphology and retinal nerve fibre layer in non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy with optical coherence tomography and confocal scanning laser ophthalmoloscopy

      Background/ aims: To compare the optic disc parameters between patients with non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) and normal controls, using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Heidelberg Retinal Tomograph III (HRT); and to evaluate the structure-function relationship in NAION eyes. Methods: Both eyes of 22 patients with typical unilateral NAION of 6 months' duration and 52 eyes from 52 randomly selected normal subjects underwent Humphrey visual field (HVF) examination and measurement of optic disc and retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFLT). Results: For the NAION affected eyes, NAION fellow eyes and normal controls, the magnification-corrected OCT disc areas were respectively ...
