    1. Concerns about the interpretation of OCT and fundus findings in COVID-19 patients in recent Lancet publication

      Concerns about the interpretation of OCT and fundus findings in COVID-19 patients in recent Lancet publication

      We read with great interest the correspondence in Lancet by Marinho et al. [ 1 ] describing purported retinal manifestations of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). While there is great interest to understand potential ocular complications of COVID-19 during this pandemic, we have some concerns regarding the interpretation of the fundus and optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings. Marinho et al. examined 12 COVID-19 patients (all confirmed by PCR or antibody testing) with typical systemic disease but no visual symptoms. The reported cohort was relatively young (25–69 years; no mean or median provided) without severe systemic disease, although 2 were hospitalized. Eleven of the ...

    2. Optical coherence tomography angiography for detection of macular neovascularization associated with atrophy in age-related macular degeneration

      Optical coherence tomography angiography for detection of macular neovascularization associated with atrophy in age-related macular degeneration

      Purpose To evaluate the ability of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) to detect macular neovascularization (MNV) in eyes with atrophy compared with fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), and optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods In this prospective study, eyes with MNV and atrophy (termed macular atrophy or MA) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and AMD eyes with geographic atrophy (GA) without MNV underwent multimodal imaging with FA, ICGA, structural OCT, and OCTA. The presence of MNV was determined using all imaging modalities by senior retina specialists and was considered the gold standard reference. Each individual imaging modality was ...

      Association of Intravitreal Aflibercept With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Vessel Density in Patients With Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy: A Secondary Analysis of a Randomized Clinical Trial

      Importance Although previous studies have evaluated the association between anti–vascular endothelial growth factor therapy and macular vessel density, they were confounded by the presence of macular edema, which may be associated with artifacts and segmentation errors in optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Objective To evaluate the association of intravitreal aflibercept with changes in macular vascular density using OCTA in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy without diabetic macular edema. Design, Setting, and Participants This post hoc analysis of a randomized clinical trial used data on 40 eyes of 40 patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy without diabetic macular edema who were ...

    4. Automated Retinal Layer Segmentation Using Graph-based Algorithm Incorporating Deep-learning-derived Information

      Automated Retinal Layer Segmentation Using Graph-based Algorithm Incorporating Deep-learning-derived Information

      Regular drusen, an accumulation of material below the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), have long been established as a hallmark early feature of nonneovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Advances in imaging have expanded the phenotype of AMD to include another extracellular deposit, reticular pseudodrusen (RPD) (also termed subretinal drusenoid deposits, SDD), which are located above the RPE. We developed an approach to automatically segment retinal layers associated with regular drusen and RPD in spectral domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. More specifically, a shortest-path algorithm enhanced with probability maps generated through a fully convolutional neural network was used to segment ...

      Purpose To examine the structure of photoreceptors surrounding two subtypes of subretinal drusenoid deposits (SDD), namely, dot and ribbon SDD, using multimodal imaging including adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (AOSLO) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods Twenty-six eyes of 13 patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and SDD and 16 eyes of 8 subjects in normal chorioretinal health were studied. SDD presence, stage, and subtype were determined using color fundus photographs, infrared reflectance, autofluorescence imaging, and SD-OCT.

      Appearance of cysts and capillary non perfusion areas in diabetic macular edema using two different OCTA devices

      The aim of this paper was to distinguish the appearance of cysts and non-perfusion areas (NPAs) in diabetic macular edema (DME) using two different Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA) devices. In this study, patients underwent OCTA using the AngioVue XR Avanti Spectral Domain (SD) OCTA and the PLEX Elite 9000 Swept-Source (SS) OCTA. Foveal and extrafoveal regions of interest (ROI), defined as any area with an altered flow signal comparing to the surrounding retina, were selected in superficial and deep capillary plexus (SCP and DCP).

    16. Pearls and Pitfalls of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Imaging: A Review

      Pearls and Pitfalls of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Imaging: A Review

      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has significantly expanded our knowledge of the ocular vasculature. Furthermore, this imaging modality has been widely adopted to investigate different ocular and systemic diseases. In this review, a discussion of the fundamental principles of OCTA is followed by the application of this imaging modality to study the retinal and choroidal vessels. A proper comprehension of this imaging modality is essential for the interpretation of OCTA imaging applications in retinal and choroidal disorders.

      Impact of segmentation density on spectral domain optical coherence tomography assessment in Stargardt disease

      Purpose Automated spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) segmentation algorithms currently do not perform well in segmenting individual intraretinal layers in eyes with Stargardt disease (STGD). We compared selective B-scan segmentation strategies for generating mean retinal layer thickness and preserved area data from SD-OCT scans in patients with STGD1. Methods Forty-five eyes from 40 Stargardt patients were randomly selected from the ongoing Natural History of the Progression of Atrophy Secondary to Stargardt Disease (ProgStar) study. All eyes underwent SD-OCT using a standard macular volume consisting of 1024 × 49 equally spaced B-scans within a 20 × 20 degree field centered on the ...
