      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography-Derived Flux As a Measure of Physiological Changes in Retinal Capillary Blood Flow

      Purpose: To compare optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA)-derived flux with conventional OCTA measures of retinal vascular density in assessment of physiological changes in retinal blood flow. Methods: Healthy subjects were recruited, and 3 × 3-mm2 fovea-centered scans were acquired using commercially available swept-source OCTA (SS-OCTA) while participants were breathing room air, 100% O2, or 5% CO2. Retinal perfusion was quantified using vessel area density (VAD) and vessel skeleton density (VSD), as well as novel measures of retinal perfusion, vessel area flux (VAF) and vessel skeleton flux (VSF). Flux is proportional to the number of red blood cells moving through a ...

    2. Functional characteristics of glaucoma related arcuate defects seen on OCT en face visualisation of the retinal nerve fibre layer

      Functional characteristics of glaucoma related arcuate defects seen on OCT en face visualisation of the retinal nerve fibre layer

      Purpose To assess continuity of perimetric defects corresponding to arcuate defects seen on optical coherence tomography (OCT) en face reflectance images of the retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) in patients with glaucoma. Methods Seven patients with glaucoma who had arcuate structural defects on OCT RNFL en face images were recruited. Static suprathreshold stimuli were presented along different meridians to localise perimetric defects in the corresponding hemifield. Then two contrasts, one 6 dB greater than the other, were used with kinetic perimetry to assess the slope of the defect. Findings with kinetic and 24‐2 perimetry were compared. Results Static perimetry ...

    3. Quantifying Subclinical and Longitudinal Microvascular Changes Following Episcleral Plaque Brachytherapy Using Spectral Domain–Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Quantifying Subclinical and Longitudinal Microvascular Changes Following Episcleral Plaque Brachytherapy Using Spectral Domain–Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Purpose: This work assesses longitudinal microvascular changes in eyes treated with iodine-125 episcleral plaque brachytherapy (EPB). Methods: High-resolution optical coherence tomography angiograms (OCTAs) of the central 3 × 3-mm macula were obtained from iodine-125 EPB–treated and untreated fellow eyes of 61 patients. Previously validated semiautomated algorithms quantified capillary density (vessel skeleton density [VSD]) and caliber (vessel diameter index). Nonperfusion was also quantified as flow impairment region (FIR). Examinations from treated and fellow eyes obtained before treatment and at 6-month, 1-year, and 2-year intervals were compared using generalized estimating equation linear models. Dosimetry maps evaluated spatial correlation between radiation dose and ...

    4. Impaired Retinal Vascular Reactivity in Diabetic Retinopathy as Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Impaired Retinal Vascular Reactivity in Diabetic Retinopathy as Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Purpose : To assess retinal vascular reactivity in healthy controls and subjects with diabetic retinopathy (DR). Methods : A total of 22 healthy control eyes and 16 eyes with DR were enrolled. Images were acquired using a commercially available swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) system. Three conditions were tested for each patient (hyperoxia, hypercapnia, and room-air) by employing a non-rebreathing apparatus that delivered appropriate gas mixtures (100% O 2 , 5% CO 2 , room air). Vessel skeleton density (VSD) and vessel diameter index (VDI) were compared between the conditions using mixed-model ANOVA adjusting for age and hypertension. Significant gas or interaction effects ...

    5. Evaluating glaucomatous abnormality in peripapillary optical coherence tomography enface visualisation of the retinal nerve fibre layer reflectance

      Evaluating glaucomatous abnormality in peripapillary optical coherence tomography enface visualisation of the retinal nerve fibre layer reflectance

      Purpose Optical coherence tomography (OCT) enface visualisation of the retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) reflectance has been found to have some advantages over retinal thickness measures. However, it is not yet clear how abnormalities on enface images relate to findings of abnormalities from other clinical measures such as the circumpapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (cRNFLT). We developed a technique to analyse the RNFL reflectance on the OCT enface images, and to investigate its relation with the cRNFLT. Methods Spectralis ( www.heidelbergengineering.com ) OCT scans of the central retinal ±24° were analysed in the study eye of 31 controls and ...
