    1. Prognostic role of optical coherence tomography after switch to dexamethasone in diabetic macular edema

      Prognostic role of optical coherence tomography after switch to dexamethasone in diabetic macular edema

      Aims To analyze the visual outcome after early switch to dexamethasone (DEX) in eyes with diabetic macular edema previously treated with ranibizumab (RNB), based on structural spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) features. Methods Retrospective study of data from 28 eyes which underwent a loading dose of three monthly RNB injections and were then shifted to DEX implant injection. SD-OCT analysis was performed before switch to DEX (week 12, 12W) according to the presence of integrity of ellipsoid zone (EZ) and external limiting membrane (ELM), disorganization of retinal inner layers (DRIL), and quantity of hyper-reflective spots (HRS). Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA ...

    2. New imaging systems in diabetic retinopathy

      New imaging systems in diabetic retinopathy

      Various imaging modalities are of significant utility in the screening, grading, treatment, and follow-up of the different stages of diabetic retinopathy (DR) and diabetic macular edema. Color stereographic photography, fluorescein angiography, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) have been the gold standard for DR imaging for years. Besides these tools, newer technologies are gaining validation and popularity, such as fundus autofluorescence and OCT angiography. Furthermore, widefield retinography and ultra-widefield retinography have been introduced for a more comprehensive evaluation of the medium-far and very-far retinal peripheries, which is crucial for the assessment of the diverse manifestations of the disease. The aim of ...

    3. SWEPT-SOURCE AND SPECTRAL DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY VERSUS DYE ANGIOGRAPHY IN THE MEASUREMENT OF TYPE 1 NEOVASCULARIZATION

      SWEPT-SOURCE AND SPECTRAL DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY VERSUS DYE ANGIOGRAPHY IN THE MEASUREMENT OF TYPE 1 NEOVASCULARIZATION

      Purpose: To compare the area of Type 1 neovascularization in patients with age-related macular degeneration calculated on spectral domain optical coherence tomography angiography (SD-OCTA), swept-source OCTA, and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA). Methods: Cross-sectional study enrolling patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration with Type 1 neovascularization . During the same visit, ICGA (Spectralis HRA, Heidelberg, Germany), 3 × 3-mm or 6 × 6-mm SD-OCTA (CIRRUS AngioPlex model 5000; Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc, Dublin, OH), and 3 × 3-mm or 6 × 6-mm swept-source OCTA (Plex Elite 9000; Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc) were performed. Neovascularization areas were compared among the three instruments. The degree of consistency between ...

    4. DualTrack Technology Improves Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Image Quality

      DualTrack Technology Improves Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Image Quality

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of DualTrack Motion Correction Technology on the performance of AngioVue optical coherence tomography angiography (Optovue, Freemont, CA). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty subjects underwent two consecutive examinations with AngioVue. The operator inactivated the eye-tracking (ET) technology before the second examination. Two operators measured execution time, excluded low-quality images, and counted the number of motion artifacts per image. RESULTS: The mean execution time was lower without ET in all the groups ( P < .05), regardless of retinal diseases. Percentages of available images and low-quality images were 75.0% and 25.0%, respectively, with ET and 63 ...
