    1. Post Doc Positions in Optical Coherence Tomography and Optical Imaging at University of Washington

      Post Doc Positions in Optical Coherence Tomography and Optical Imaging at University of Washington

      There are a number of postdoctoral/professional scientist positions immediately available in Wang Lab [Biophotonics and Imaging Laboratory (BAIL)], Department of Bioengineering and Department of Ophthalmology, University of Washington. We are located in beautiful and best to live Seattle area. We are looking for highly motivated individuals to join our vibrant lab to develop innovative optical imaging techniques (e.g. optical coherence tomography and angiography, and smartphone-based healthcare technology) for ophthalmology, dermatology, dentistry, and brain imaging applications. Clinical translation is the focus of our research activities. Our work involves profound knowledge of biomedical optics, system engineering and integration, image processing ...

    2. Peripapillary and Macular Microcirculation in Glaucoma Patients of African and European Descent Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Peripapillary and Macular Microcirculation in Glaucoma Patients of African and European Descent Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Précis: We found no significant differences in peripapillary and macula microcirculation blood flow metrics in eyes with open angle glaucoma of African descent (AD) and European Descent (ED) as detected by optical coherence tomography-angiography ( OCTA ). Purpose: To investigate the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular vascular microcirculation in subjects of African descent (AD) and European descent (ED) with open-angle glaucoma using optical coherence tomography-angiography ( OCTA ). Patients and Methods: One eye from each subject was scanned using AngioPlex OCTA system (Zeiss Meditec Inc., Dublin, CA) covering both a 6 ×6▒mm scanning area centered at the optic nerve ...

    3. Clinical Utility of Triplicate En Face Image Averaging for Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Glaucoma and Glaucoma Suspects

      Clinical Utility of Triplicate En Face Image Averaging for Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Glaucoma and Glaucoma Suspects

      Précis: Averaging triplicate en face angiograms of the radial peripapillary capillary plexus with optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) improves vessel visualization, reduces vessel density parameters, and increases the diagnostic accuracy for glaucoma of one such parameter. Purpose: To test the hypothesis that triplicate averaging of the radial peripapillary capillary (RPC) layer improves visualization and diagnostic accuracy of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) for glaucoma . Methods: This is a cross-sectional study involving 63 primary open angle glaucoma patients and 70 age-matched glaucoma suspects. Triplicate 6×6mm OCTA scans of the optic nerve head were acquired, and the RPC layer was ...

    5. Structural and Functional Associations of Macular Microcirculation in the Ganglion Cell-inner Plexiform Layer in Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Structural and Functional Associations of Macular Microcirculation in the Ganglion Cell-inner Plexiform Layer in Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Purpose: To quantify retinal microvasculature within the macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) in primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and normal eyes, determine association of vessel parameters with structural and functional measures, and report diagnostic accuracy of vessel parameters. Methods: POAG and normal patients underwent 6▒mm×6▒mm macula scans (Angioplex TM optical coherence tomography angiography [OCTA]; Cirrus TM HD-OCT 5000); and Humphrey Field Analyzer II-i 24-2 visual field (VF) (Zeiss, Dublin, CA). Prototype software performed semi-automatic segmentation to create GCIPL en face images, and quantified vessel area density (VAD), vessel skeleton density (VSD), and vessel complexity index (VCI ...
