    1. Intact Retinal Tissue and Retinal Pigment Epithelium Identified Within A Coloboma By High-Speed, Ultrahigh-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography

      Intact Retinal Tissue and Retinal Pigment Epithelium Identified Within A Coloboma By High-Speed, Ultrahigh-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose: The purpose of this study was to report on a posterior segment coloboma manifesting unusual morphology as determined by high-speed, ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography imaging. Methods: A 47-year-old woman with bilateral colobomas was evaluated by fundus examination and high-speed, ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography imaging. Results: Imaging with high-speed, ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography showed intact retinal pigment epithelium within the posterior segment coloboma. Most of the retinal layers seemed to continue into the coloboma, although they exhibited slight attenuation. The external limiting membrane was clearly visible continuing within the coloboma, suggesting that Müller cells and the inner segments of the ...

    2. COMPARISON OF SPECTRAL/FOURIER DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY INSTRUMENTS FOR ASSESSMENT OF NORMAL MACULAR THICKNESS

      Purpose: The purpose of this study was to report normal macular thickness measurements and assess reproducibility of retinal thickness measurements acquired by a time-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Stratus, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., Dublin, CA) and three commercially available spectral/Fourier domain OCT instruments (Cirrus HD-OCT, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc.; RTVue-100, Optovue, Inc., Fremont, CA; 3D OCT-1000, Topcon, Inc., Paramus, NJ). Methods: Forty randomly selected eyes of 40 normal, healthy volunteers were imaged. Subjects were scanned twice during one visit and a subset of 25 was scanned again within 8 weeks. Retinal thickness measurements were automatically generated by OCT software ...

    3. Assessment of Artifacts and Reproducibility across Spectral- and Time-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Devices

      Purpose: To report the frequency of optical coherence tomography (OCT) scan artifacts and to compare macular thickness measurements, interscan reproducibility, and interdevice agreeability across 3 spectral-domain (SD) OCT (also known as Fourier domain; Cirrus HD-OCT, RTVue-100, and Topcon 3D-OCT 1000) devices and 1 time-domain (TD) OCT (Stratus OCT) device.Design: Prospective, noncomparative, noninterventional case series.Participants: Fifty-two patients seen at the New England Eye Center, Tufts Medical Center Retina Service, between February and August 2008.Methods: Two scans were performed for each of the SD OCT protocols: Cirrus macular cube 512×128 (software version 3.0; Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc ...

    4. High-speed Ultrahigh Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography before and after Ranibizumab for Age-related Macular Degeneration

      Objective: To evaluate intraretinal anatomy in patients with exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) using high-speed ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography (hsUHR-OCT) before and 1 month after intravitreal injection of ranibizumab.Design: Retrospective case series.Participants: Twelve eyes of 12 patients.Methods: A broad bandwidth superluminescent diode laser light source and spectral/Fourier domain signal detection were used to create a prototype hsUHR-OCT instrument with 3.5 μm axial image resolution and approximately 25,000 lines/second acquisition speed. Twelve eyes of 12 patients with exudative AMD were imaged with hsUHR-OCT before and 1 month after intravitreal ranibizumab injection. High pixel ...

    5. Three-dimensional ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography imaging of age-related macular degeneration

      Three-dimensional ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography imaging of age-related macular degeneration

      Ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) enhances the ability to visualize different intra retinal layers. In age-related macular degeneration (AMD), pathological changes in individual retinal layers, including photoreceptor inner and outer segments and retinal pigment ... [Opt.

    6. Projection OCT fundus imaging for visualizing outer retinal pathology in non-exudative age related macular degeneration

      Aims: To demonstrate ultrahigh resolution, three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (3D-OCT) and projection OCT fundus imaging for enhanced visualization of outer retinal pathology in non-exudative age related macular degeneration (AMD). Methods: A high-speed, ultrahigh 3.5 µm resolution OCT prototype instrument was developed for the ophthalmic clinic. 83 patients with non-exudative AMD were imaged. Projection OCT fundus images were generated from 3D-OCT data by selectively summing different retinal depth levels. Results were compared with standard ophthalmic examination, including fundus photography and fluorescein angiography, when indicated. Results: Projection OCT fundus imaging enhanced the visualization of outer retinal pathology in non-exudative AMD. Different ...

    7. Subretinal Fluid From Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy Demonstrated by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Objective  To demonstrate the development of subfoveal fluid associated with optic disc swelling from nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. Methods  Optical coherence tomographic studies obtained during a 3-year period (October 1, 2003, to December 30, 2006) from 76 patients who developed ischemic optic neuropathy from 2 institutions were evaluated. The presence or absence, and the distribution, of subretinal fluid was determined. Results  Seventy-six patients underwent macular optical coherence tomography within 4 weeks of developing sudden loss of vision in one eye, decreased visual acuity, a visual field defect, a relative afferent pupillary defect, and optic disc swelling with peripapillary hemorrhages ...
