    2. Correlation Between Laser Speckle Flowgraphy and OCT-Derived Retinal and Choroidal Metrics in Healthy Human Eye

      Correlation Between Laser Speckle Flowgraphy and OCT-Derived Retinal and Choroidal Metrics in Healthy Human Eye

      Purpose: To investigate the correlation between laser speckle flowgraphy (LSFG) signals and the quantitative metrics derived from optical coherence tomography (OCT) in normal eyes. Methods: LSFG, OCT, and OCT angiography (OCTA) imaging were performed on normal participants using a custom-designed LSFG system and a commercial swept-source OCT system. Mean (PWM) and amplitude (PWA) of the LSFG pulse waveform were selected to quantify the LSFG signals. Retinal and choroidal maps were obtained using the standard 6 × 6 mm OCT and OCTA scans. Structural and vascular metrics maps, including thickness, vessel area density, vessel skeleton density, and vessel diameter index of the ...

    3. Automatic geographic atrophy segmentation using optical attenuation in OCT scans with deep learning

      Automatic geographic atrophy segmentation using optical attenuation in OCT scans with deep learning

      A deep learning algorithm was developed to automatically identify, segment, and quantify geographic atrophy (GA) based on optical attenuation coefficients (OACs) calculated from optical coherence tomography (OCT) datasets. Normal eyes and eyes with GA secondary to age-related macular degeneration were imaged with swept-source OCT using 6 × 6 mm scanning patterns. OACs calculated from OCT scans were used to generate customized composite en face OAC images. GA lesions were identified and measured using customized en face sub-retinal pigment epithelium (subRPE) OCT images. Two deep learning models with the same U-Net architecture were trained using OAC images and subRPE OCT images. Model ...

    4. Intrasession Repeatability and Intersession Reproducibility of Macular Vessel Parameters on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Glaucomatous and Non-Glaucomatous Eyes

      Intrasession Repeatability and Intersession Reproducibility of Macular Vessel Parameters on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Glaucomatous and Non-Glaucomatous Eyes

      Purpose: Using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), this study compared intrasession repeatability versus intersession reproducibility of macular vessel parameters in glaucoma and non-glaucoma subjects. Methods: 6x6 mm 2 macular OCTA scans (Cirrus HD-OCT 5000) were acquired from glaucomatous and non-glaucomatous subjects as part of an observational, longitudinal study. Vessel area density (VAD) and vessel skeleton density (VSD) were calculated using research-based quantification software while perfusion density (PD Z ) and vessel density (VD Z ) were calculated using commercially developed software (Cirrus 11.0, Carl Zeiss Meditec). Intrasession repeatability and intersession reproducibility were determined using within-eye standard deviation (S W ), within-eye coefficient ...

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

      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 ...

    6. Steps to Measurement Floor of an Optical Microangiography Device in Glaucoma

      Steps to Measurement Floor of an Optical Microangiography Device in Glaucoma

      Purpose To compare dynamic ranges and steps to measurement floors of peripapillary and macular metrics from a complex signal-based optical microangiography (OMAG C ) optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) device for glaucoma with those of OCT measurements. Design Cross-sectional study. Methods Imaging of 252 eyes from 173 glaucoma subjects and 123 eyes from 92 non-glaucoma subjects from a glaucoma clinic was quantified using custom and commercial software. Metrics from OCT (retinal nerve fiber layer [RNFL], ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer [GCIPL]) and OCTA (custom: peripapillary vessel area density [pVAD], macular vessel area density [mVAD], macular vessel skeleton density [mVSD]; commercial: peripapillary perfusion ...

    7. Swept-Source OCT Angiographic Characteristics of Treatment-Naïve Nonexudative Macular Neovascularization in AMD Prior to Exudation

      Swept-Source OCT Angiographic Characteristics of Treatment-Naïve Nonexudative Macular Neovascularization in AMD Prior to Exudation

      Purpose: To investigate the characteristics of treatment-naïve nonexudative macular neovascularization (MNV) in age-related macular degeneration before the onset of exudation using swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography. Methods: MNV area, choriocapillaris (CC) flow deficits (FDs), vessel area density (VAD), vessel skeleton density (VSD), retinal pigment epithelial detachment (PED) volume, mean choroidal thickness (MCT), and choroid vascularity index (CVI) measurements were assessed at two visits prior to exudation. We compared measurements made at the second visit and the rate of change between visits in eyes with and without exudation. The differences in these parameters between eyes with and without subsequent exudation ...

      Macular microvascular parameters in the ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer derived by optical coherence tomography angiography: Vascular structure-central visual function analysis

      Purpose To investigate the relationships between global and sectoral macular vascular microcirculation parameters in the ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) assessed by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), and global and sectoral visual field (VF) central mean sensitivity (CMS) assessed by standard automated perimetry. Methods Fifty-four eyes with open angle glaucoma were scanned using a swept-source OCTA (Plex Elite 9000, Zeiss, Dublin, CA) and macular vascular microcirculation was measured by calculating the overall flux and vessel area density (VAD) over the entire 6mm x 6mm area, excluding large retinal vessels. Central 10-degree VF CMS was calculated based on 24–2 VF ...

    10. Impacts of Axial Length on Retinal and Choriocapillaris Blood Flow Quantification in Myopia with Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Impacts of Axial Length on Retinal and Choriocapillaris Blood Flow Quantification in Myopia with Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Purpose : To evaluate the impact of image magnification correction on retinal and choriocapillaris (CC) blood flow quantification using swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in myopic eyes. Methods : Subjects with myopia were recruited for ocular biometry, refraction, and OCTA imaging with a 6 × 6-mm protocol. The retinal vascular area density (RVAD), retinal vascular skeleton density (RVSD), retinal flow impairment area (RFIA), percentage of CC flow deficits (FD%), and the mean size of CC flow deficits (FDs) were quantified within a 5-mm-diameter circle centered on the fovea before and after magnification correction using the Littman and the modified Bennett formulae.
