    1. Optical coherence tomography angiography for detection of macular neovascularization associated with atrophy in age-related macular degeneration

      Optical coherence tomography angiography for detection of macular neovascularization associated with atrophy in age-related macular degeneration

      Purpose To evaluate the ability of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) to detect macular neovascularization (MNV) in eyes with atrophy compared with fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), and optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods In this prospective study, eyes with MNV and atrophy (termed macular atrophy or MA) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and AMD eyes with geographic atrophy (GA) without MNV underwent multimodal imaging with FA, ICGA, structural OCT, and OCTA. The presence of MNV was determined using all imaging modalities by senior retina specialists and was considered the gold standard reference. Each individual imaging modality was ...

      Background To compare fluorescein angiography (FA) and five different optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) devices and to test their reproducibility in the evaluation of retinal microaneurysms (MAs) secondary to diabetic retinopathy (DR). Methods On the same day, patients with DR were imaged with FA and five OCTA devices: prototype Spectralis OCTA, prototype PlexElite, RTVue XR Avanti, AngioPlex and DRI OCT Triton. For all OCTA devices, a 3×3 volume scan pattern was performed. MAs were evaluated for the superficial capillary plexus (SCP) and deep capillary plexus (DCP).

    3. Comparison of wide field optical coherence tomography angiography with extended field imaging and fluorescein angiography in retinal vascular disorders

      Comparison of wide field optical coherence tomography angiography with extended field imaging and fluorescein angiography in retinal vascular disorders

      Purpose To compare swept source OCTA device, with and without the extended field imaging (EFI) technique, to standard fluorescein angiography (FA) in the clinical practice. Methods Consecutive patients with vascular disorder patients underwent FA with 55-degree lens (Spectralis Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) and OCTA with the prototype PlexElite (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA) using a 12 mm x 12 mm volume scan pattern centered on the fovea and a prototype of + 20.00-diopter designed specifically by Zeiss. The imaging methods were compared for visible field of view, extension of non-perfused areas, presence and number of neovessels, vessel density (VD) and ...

      COMPARISON BETWEEN SEVERAL OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY DEVICES AND INDOCYANINE GREEN ANGIOGRAPHY OF CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION

      Purpose: To compare indocyanine green angiography and four different optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) devices and to test their reproducibility in the evaluation of choroidal neovascularization (CNV). Methods: This study was an observational case series of Type 1 and Type 2 CNV presenting at the Eye Clinic, Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences, Luigi Sacco Hospital, University of Milan, imaged with indocyanine green angiography and four different OCTA devices: prototype PlexElite (Carl Zeiss Meditec), prototype Spectralis OCTA (Spectralis; Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany), Optovue RTVue XR Avanti (Optovue, Inc, Fremont, CA), and AngioPlex (Cirrus 5000 HD-OCT; Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc, Dublin ...

    5. Looking Outside The Maculaa Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Looking Outside The Maculaa Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Purpose: To evaluate baseline features and morphologic changes of vitreoretinal adhesion and outer retinal layers outside the macula after intravitreal ocriplasmin injection. To study the relation between vitreous detachment and attenuation of retinal outer segments signal. Methods: Retrospective cases series of 15 eyes. Each eye was scanned with the 55° wide-field optical coherence tomography lens in 6 different locations, three horizontal B-scan (central, temporal, and nasal) and three vertical B-scan (central, superior, and inferior) at baseline, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months after injection. Results: After ocriplasmin injection, vitreomacular traction (VMT) resolved in 12 patients (80%), 3 ...

    6. Reproducibility of vessel density, fractal dimension and foveal avascular zone using 7 different optical coherence tomography angiography devices

      Reproducibility of vessel density, fractal dimension and foveal avascular zone using 7 different optical coherence tomography angiography devices

      Purpose To evaluate the reproducibility of parafoveal microvascular anatomy of 7 different optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) devices by comparing vessels density (VD), fractal dimension (FD) and foveal avascular zone (FAZ) of superficial and deep capillary plexus in healthy volunteers. Design Reliability analysis. Methods Consecutive healthy volunteers presenting at the Eye Clinic, Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences, Luigi Sacco Hospital, University of Milan in the same clinic visit were imaged by 7 different OCT-A devices: Optovue RTVue XR Avanti (Optovue, Inc, Fremont, CA), prototype Spectralis OCT-A (Spectralis Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany), AngioPlex (Cirrus 5000 HD-OCT, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc ...

    7. SPECTRAL DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY FINDINGS IN ENDOGENOUS CANDIDA ENDOPHTHALMITIS AND THEIR CLINICAL RELEVANCE

      SPECTRAL DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY FINDINGS IN ENDOGENOUS CANDIDA ENDOPHTHALMITIS AND THEIR CLINICAL RELEVANCE

      Purpose: To describe vitreal, retinal, and choroidal features of eyes affected by Endogenous candida endophthalmitis (ECE) analyzed by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and to evaluate their clinical impact. Methods: Medical records and SD-OCT images from eyes diagnosed with ECE at four retina and uveitis tertiary referral centers were retrospectively evaluated. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography images were analyzed to evaluate the structural changes occurring in the vitreous, the retina, and the choroid in areas involved by ECE. Baseline and final best-corrected visual acuity were correlated with SD-OCT findings. Results: Fifteen eyes from nine patients were enrolled. Vitreous involvement ...

    9. ENHANCED DEPTH IMAGING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY FEATURES IN AREAS OF CHORIOCAPILLARIS HYPOPERFUSION

      ENHANCED DEPTH IMAGING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY FEATURES IN AREAS OF CHORIOCAPILLARIS HYPOPERFUSION

      Purpose: To detect choriocapillaris changes by enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) in areas of choriocapillaris hypoperfusion visualized on indocyanine green angiography. Methods: Combined indocyanine green angiography and EDI-OCT from patients diagnosed with inflammatory choriocapillaris hypoperfusion were retrospectively analyzed. The EDI-OCTs were compared with indocyanine green angiography to detect choriocapillaris changes suggestive of choriocapillaris hypoperfusion in both active stage (AS) and inactive stage of the disease. The EDI-OCT was graded by two independent observers for choriocapillaris pattern (normal/altered) and reflectivity (hyper/hypo/isoreflective) changes. Manual measurements of choriocapillaris thickness were obtained. Interobserver agreement was assessed using Cohen's ...
