    1. Macular Microvascular Networks In Healthy Pediatric Subjects

      Macular Microvascular Networks In Healthy Pediatric Subjects

      Purpose: To report optical coherence tomography angiography ( OCTA ) values in healthy pediatric eyes and to identify factors that may modify these values. Methods: In this prospective observational cross-sectional study, macular OCTA images were acquired from healthy pediatric patients. Main outcome measures were 1) foveal avascular zone (FAZ) area at the level of the superficial retinal capillary plexus (SCP); 2) SCP and deep retinal capillary plexus (DCP) perfusion density (based on the area of vessels); 3) SCP and DCP vessel density (based on a map with vessels of 1-pixel width); and 4) CC perfusion density. Multiple regression analysis was performed to ...

    2. Evaluation of Corneal Epithelial Thickness Imaged by High Definition Optical Coherence Tomography in Healthy Eyes

      Evaluation of Corneal Epithelial Thickness Imaged by High Definition Optical Coherence Tomography in Healthy Eyes

      Purpose: To evaluate corneal epithelial thickness (CET) and corneal thickness (CT) in healthy eyes using spectral domain optical coherence tomography. Methods: Thirty-six healthy eyes were imaged using the Cirrus high-definition (HD)-optical coherence tomography device. The average CET and CT were assessed using Cirrus Review Software within predefined concentric corneal ring-shaped zones. Specific regions of CET (superior, inferior, temporal, nasal, superonasal, inferotemporal, superotemporal, and inferonasal) were also assessed. The difference between zones was compared between males and females. Results: The average CET was 48.3, 47.1, 46.1, and 45.8 μm in the 4 concentric zones (0–2 ...

    4. Multiple enface image averaging for enhanced optical coherence tomography angiography imaging

      Multiple enface image averaging for enhanced optical coherence tomography angiography imaging

      Purpose To investigate the effect of multiple enface image averaging on image quality of the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods Twenty‐one normal volunteers were enrolled in this study. For each subject, one eye was imaged with 3 × 3 mm scan protocol, and another eye was imaged with the 6 × 6 mm scan protocol centred on the fovea using the ZEISS Angioplex™ spectral‐domain OCTA device. Eyes were repeatedly imaged to obtain nine OCTA cube scan sets, and nine superficial capillary plexus (SCP) and deep capillary plexus (DCP) were individually averaged after registration. Results Eighteen eyes with a 3 ...

    5. Repeatability and Reproducibility of Superficial Macular Retinal Vessel Density Measurements Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography En Face Images

      Repeatability and Reproducibility of Superficial Macular Retinal Vessel Density Measurements Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography En Face Images

      Importance The repeatability and reproducibility of quantitative metrics from optical coherence tomographic angiography (OCTA) must be assessed before these data can be confidently interpreted in clinical research and practice. Objective To evaluate the repeatability and reproducibility of OCTA-derived retinal vascular quantitative metrics. Design, Setting and Participants In this cross-sectional study, 21 healthy volunteers (42 eyes) and 22 patients with retinal disease (22 eyes), including 14 with age-related macular degeneration, 3 with epiretinal membrane, 2 with diabetic retinopathy, 2 with myopic macular degeneration, and 1 with retinal vein occlusion, were enrolled. Participants were recruited from September 1 through November 31, 2016 ...

    6. Impact of Multiple En Face Image Averaging on Quantitative Assessment from Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Images

      Impact of Multiple En Face Image Averaging on Quantitative Assessment from Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Images

      Purpose To investigate the impact of multiple en face image averaging on quantitative measurements of the retinal microvasculature using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Design Prospective, observational, cross-sectional case series. Participants Twenty-one healthy individuals with normal eyes. Methods Macular OCTA images were acquired from all participants using the Zeiss Cirrus 5000 with Angioplex OCTA software (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA). Nine OCTA cube scans per eye were obtained and 9 superficial retinal layer (SRL) and deep retinal layer (DRL) en face OCTA image slabs were averaged individually after registration. Quantitative parameters from the retinal microvasculature were measured on binarized and ...
