    1. Effects of Age, Race, and Ethnicity on the Optic Nerve and Peripapillary Region Using Spectral-Domain OCT 3D Volume Scans

      Effects of Age, Race, and Ethnicity on the Optic Nerve and Peripapillary Region Using Spectral-Domain OCT 3D Volume Scans

      Purpose : To evaluate the effects of age, race, and ethnicity on the optic nerve and peripapillary retina using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) three-dimensional (3D) volume scans in normal subjects. Methods : This is a cross-sectional study performed at a single institution in Boston. All patients received retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) scans and an optic nerve 3D volume scan. The SD-OCT software calculated peripapillary RNFL thickness, retinal thickness (RT), and retinal volume (RV). Custom-designed software calculated neuroretinal rim minimum distance band (MDB) thickness and area. Results : There were 272 normal subjects, including 175 whites, 40 blacks, 40 Asians, and 17 ...

    2. Diagnostic Capability of Three-Dimensional Macular Parameters for Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Volume Scans

      Diagnostic Capability of Three-Dimensional Macular Parameters for Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Volume Scans

      Purpose : To compare the diagnostic capability of three-dimensional (3D) macular parameters against traditional two-dimensional (2D) retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness using spectral domain optical coherence tomography. To determine if manual correction and interpolation of B-scans improve the ability of 3D macular parameters to diagnose glaucoma. Methods : A total of 101 open angle glaucoma patients (29 with early glaucoma) and 57 healthy subjects had peripapillary 2D RNFL thickness and 3D macular volume scans. Four parameters were calculated for six different-sized annuli: total macular thickness (M-thickness), total macular volume (M-volume), ganglion cell complex (GCC) thickness, and GCC volume of the innermost ...

    3. Hypotony Maculopathy: A Silent Mimicker of Common Macular Diseases With Nonspecific Optical Coherence Tomography Findings

      Hypotony Maculopathy: A Silent Mimicker of Common Macular Diseases With Nonspecific Optical Coherence Tomography Findings

      Purpose: To highlight the diagnostic challenge of eyes with hypotony maculopathy with concurrent macular diseases and to present optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging findings in hypotony maculopathy. Methods: Retrospective review of 15 eyes of 12 patients with hypotony maculopathy at a single institution. Results: Low intraocular pressure (IOP) was caused by overfiltration from trabeculectomy in 9 eyes (of 15, 60%), overtreatment with topical aqueous suppressants after trabeculectomy in 3 eyes (of 15, 20%), bleb leak in 1 eye (of 15, 7%), and treatment with topical aqueous suppressants alone in 2 eyes (of 15, 13%). On OCT imaging, 7 eyes (of ...

    4. Diagnostic Capability of Peripapillary 3D Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Volume for Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Volume Scans

      Diagnostic Capability of Peripapillary 3D Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Volume for Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Volume Scans

      Purpose To determine the diagnostic capability of peripapillary 3-dimensional (3D) retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) volume measurements from spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) volume scans for open angle glaucoma (OAG). Design Assessment of diagnostic accuracy. Methods Setting: Academic clinical setting. Study population : 180 patients (113 OAG and 67 normal subjects). Observation procedures : One eye per subject was included. Peripapillary 3D RNFL volumes were calculated for global, quadrant, and sector regions, using four different sized annuli. Peripapillary 2D RNFL thickness circle scans were also obtained. Main outcome measures : Area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUROC) values, sensitivity, specificity, positive ...

    5. Comprehensive Three-Dimensional Analysis of the Neuroretinal Rim in Glaucoma Using High-Density Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Volume Scans

      Comprehensive Three-Dimensional Analysis of the Neuroretinal Rim in Glaucoma Using High-Density Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Volume Scans

      Purpose : To describe spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) methods for quantifying neuroretinal rim tissue in glaucoma and to compare these methods to the traditional retinal nerve fiber layer thickness diagnostic parameter. Methods : Neuroretinal rim parameters derived from three-dimensional (3D) volume scans were compared with the two-dimensional (2D) Spectralis retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness scans for diagnostic capability. This study analyzed one eye per patient of 104 glaucoma patients and 58 healthy subjects. The shortest distances between the cup surface and the OCT-based disc margin were automatically calculated to determine the thickness and area of the minimum distance band (MDB ...

    6. Diagnostic performance of a novel 3D neuroretinal rim parameter for glaucoma using high-density volume scans

      Diagnostic performance of a novel 3D neuroretinal rim parameter for glaucoma using high-density volume scans

      Purpose To describe optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) findings in multifocal choroiditis (MFC) with active lesions and to characterize the concordance between the OCTA and other traditional imaging modalities. Design Reliability and validity analysis. Methods Patients with suspected choroidal neovascularization (CNV) or acute inflammatory lesions associated with MFC were assessed in this study. All participants underwent preliminary traditional multimodal imaging including color fundus photography, fundus autofluorescence, near-infrared reflectance imaging, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography, and fluorescence angiography (FA). The participants were prospectively recruited to perform OCTA. OCTA findings of active lesions were compared with other traditional imaging results. Vascular flow signal ...
