    1. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Macular Neovascularization: A Comparison Between Different OCTA Devices

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Macular Neovascularization: A Comparison Between Different OCTA Devices

      Purpose : The purpose of this study is to compare the ability of 3 optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) devices to measure lesion area in patients with macular neovascularization (MNV) with type 1, 2 and mixed neovascularization (NV). Methods : OCTA, fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), and structural optical coherence tomography (OCT) were performed. NV lesion area measurements were performed by two graders. Results : Twenty-eight eyes were included: 20 with NV were classified as type 1, 6 as type 2, and 2 as mixed type. AngioVue and Spectralis detected the NV in 26 out of 28 eyes (92.8%). The ...

    2. Changes in Iris Perfusion Following Scleral Buckle Surgery for Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment: An Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (AS-OCTA) Study

      Changes in Iris Perfusion Following Scleral Buckle Surgery for Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment: An Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (AS-OCTA) Study

      Purpose: To investigate iris vasculature changes following scleral buckling (SB) surgery in eyes with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) with anterior-segment (AS) optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods: In this prospective study, enrolled subjects were imaged with an SS-OCTA system (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc., Dublin, CA, USA). Image acquisition of the iris was obtained using an AS lens and a manual focusing adjustment in the iris using the retina imaging software. The quantitative analysis was performed in eight different iris regions: (i) superior, (ii) supero-temporal, (iii) supero-nasal, (iv) nasal, (v) temporal, (vi) inferior, (vii) infero-temporal, (viii) infero nasal ...

    3. Widefield topographical analysis of the retinal perfusion and neuroretinal thickness in healthy eyes: a pilot study

      Widefield topographical analysis of the retinal perfusion and neuroretinal thickness in healthy eyes: a pilot study

      Purpose In this pilot study we reported variation of superficial (SCP) and deep (DCP) capillary plexuses flow in macular and near/mid periphery regions in healthy subjects using widefield swept source-optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA). Methods In this prospective, cross-sectional study, enroled subjects were imaged with an SS-OCTA system (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc., Dublin, CA, USA). OCTA scans were taken in primary and extremes of gaze and a montage was automatically created. Quantitative analysis was performed in the macular and peripheral regions. In addition, SCP and DCP variables were further investigated in distinct fields within these three ...

    4. In Vivo Mapping of the Choriocapillaris in High myopia: a Widefield Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      In Vivo Mapping of the Choriocapillaris in High myopia: a Widefield Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      To report variation of choriocapillaris (CC) flow in widefield in high in myopic subjects compared with an age-matched normal control group using ultra widefield optical coherence tomography angiography (UW-OCTA). This is a Prospective, cross-sectional study. Thirty high myopia subjects and fifty healthy subjects were enrolled. Healthy and high myopia subjects were imaged with the SS-OCTA system (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc., Dublin, CA, USA). For each eye, five 12 × 12-mm OCTA volume scans were acquired. The en face CC images were then exported to imageJ and a semi-automated algorithm was used for subsequent quantitative analysis. The main outcome ...

    5. Eyelashes Artifact in Ultra-Widefield Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Eyelashes Artifact in Ultra-Widefield Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To describe the presence of eyelashes artifact in ultra-widefield swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) images. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this prospective, cross-sectional study, 52 healthy, young subjects were imaged with the SS-OCTA system. OCTA scans were taken in primary and extremes of gaze, and a montage was automatically created. The en face choriocapillaris images were then exported, and a semi-automated algorithm was used for subsequent quantitative analysis. RESULTS: The authors noted the presence of some linear regions of reduced brightness, which were assumed to represent a shadow effect due to patient eyelashes. In order to quantify ...

    6. Widefield optical coherence tomography angiography in diabetic retinopathy

      Widefield optical coherence tomography angiography in diabetic retinopathy

      Aims To evaluate superficial capillary plexus (SCP), deep capillary plexus (DCP) and choriocapillaris (CC) perfusion in macular and near/mid periphery regions in diabetic patients using widefield swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (WSS-OCTA). Methods Ninety-four diabetic patients (94 eyes) classified as diabetics without diabetic retinopathy (no DR) (25 eyes), mild DR (23 eyes), moderate/severe DR (26 eyes), proliferative DR (20 eyes) and a control group of 25 healthy subjects (25 eyes) were imaged with the WSS-OCTA system (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc., Dublin, CA, USA). Quantitative analysis was performed in the macular and peripheral regions. The main ...

      In Vivo Mapping of the Choriocapillaris in Healthy Eyes: a Widefield Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Study

      Purpose To report variation of choriocapillaris (CC) flow in peripapillary, macular and near/mid periphery regions in healthy subjects using widefield swept source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA). Design Prospective, cross-sectional study. Subjects Fifty healthy subjects. Methods Healthy young subjects were imaged with the SS-OCTA system (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc., Dublin, CA, USA). OCTA scans were taken in primary and extremes of gaze and a montage was automatically created. The en face CC images were then exported to imageJ and a semi-automated algorithm was used for subsequent quantitative analysis. Main outcome measures Quantitative analysis of the CC ...
