    2. Utility of Ultrasound and Optical Coherence Tomography in Differentiating Between Papilledema and Pseudopapilledema in Children

      Utility of Ultrasound and Optical Coherence Tomography in Differentiating Between Papilledema and Pseudopapilledema in Children

      Background: Differentiating between papilledema and pseudopapilledema in children presenting with mild-to-moderate optic nerve head elevation is challenging. This study sought to determine which B-scan ultrasonography (BSUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) features, individually or in combination, are best able to differentiate between papilledema and pseudopapilledema in children. Methods: Children presenting with optic nerve head elevation of unknown etiology were eligible if they underwent BSUS and OCT performed by the same investigator. The absolute optic nerve sheath diameter (in millimeter) along with the presence/absence of a hyperreflective nodule(s) at the optic nerve head (indicative of druse) from BSUS was ...

    3. Evaluating the association of clinical factors and optical coherence tomography retinal imaging with axial length and axial length growth among preterm infants

      Evaluating the association of clinical factors and optical coherence tomography retinal imaging with axial length and axial length growth among preterm infants

      Purpose To study the association of clinical factors and optical coherence tomography (OCT) retinal imaging with axial length (AL) and AL growth in preterm infants Methods Among a subgroup of infants from the prospective BabySTEPS study who were screened for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and had both AL measured and OCT imaging performed, we analyzed data collected prior to 42 weeks postmenstrual age (PMA) and prior to ROP treatment. Using linear mixed effects models, we evaluated associations between AL and AL growth with gestational age (GA), birthweight, PMA, sex, race, multiparity, maximum ROP stage, and OCT features.

    5. Repeatability and Reproducibility of Axial and Lateral Measurements on Handheld Optical Coherence Tomography Systems Compared with Tabletop System

      Repeatability and Reproducibility of Axial and Lateral Measurements on Handheld Optical Coherence Tomography Systems Compared with Tabletop System

      Purpose : To compare the repeatability and reproducibility of axial and lateral retinal measurements using handheld optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems and a tabletop OCT system. Methods : Graders measured central foveal thickness (CFT), optic nerve-to-fovea distance (OFD), and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness on OCT scans of the right eye of 10 healthy adults. Three OCT systems were used: handheld Leica Envisu, investigational handheld swept-source OCT (UC3), and Heidelberg Spectralis tabletop system. All eyes were imaged five times with each OCT system by each of two imagers. A components of variance analysis provided estimates of repeatability (variation due to random ...

    6. Intracranial pressure patterns in children with craniosynostosis utilizing optical coherence tomography

      Intracranial pressure patterns in children with craniosynostosis utilizing optical coherence tomography

      Background Better understanding the incidence and patterns of elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) in patients with craniosynostosis may facilitate more timely intervention to alter neurocognitive outcomes. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the retina can non-invasively diagnose elevated ICP, and has demonstrated high sensitivity and specificity among patients with craniosynostosis. This study sought to characterize patterns of elevated ICP among patients with craniosynostosis. Methods Quantitative retinal parameters were prospectively assessed in both eyes of patients with craniosynostosis using spectral-domain OCT. Based on retinal OCT thresholds associated with elevated ICP (> 15 mmHg), subjects were assigned an OCT diagnosis of elevated or non-elevated ...

    7. Optical coherence tomography identifies outer retina thinning in frontotemporal degeneration

      Optical coherence tomography identifies outer retina thinning in frontotemporal degeneration

      Objective: Whereas Alzheimer disease (AD) is associated with inner retina thinning visualized by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), we sought to determine if the retina has a distinguishing biomarker for frontotemporal degeneration (FTD). Methods: Using a cross-sectional design, we examined retinal structure in 38 consecutively enrolled patients with FTD and 44 controls using a standard SD-OCT protocol. Retinal layers were segmented with the Iowa Reference Algorithm. Subgroups of highly predictive molecular pathology (tauopathy, TAR DNA–binding protein 43, unknown) were determined by clinical criteria, genetic markers, and a CSF biomarker (total tau: β-amyloid) to exclude presumed AD. We excluded eyes ...

    8. IDENTIFICATION OF FLUID ON OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY BY TREATING OPHTHALMOLOGISTS VERSUS A READING CENTER IN THE COMPARISON OF AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION TREATMENTS TRIALS

      IDENTIFICATION OF FLUID ON OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY BY TREATING OPHTHALMOLOGISTS VERSUS A READING CENTER IN THE COMPARISON OF AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION TREATMENTS TRIALS

      Purpose: To examine treatment decisions by ophthalmologists versus reading center fluid identification from optical coherence tomography in Comparison of Age-Related Macular Degeneration Treatments Trials (CATT). Methods: Fluid in 6,210 optical coherence tomography scans (598 patients) in "as needed treatment" arm of CATT Year 1 was compared with ophthalmologist's treatment: positive fluid agreement (PFA, fluid+, treatment+) and positive fluid discrepancy (PFD, fluid+, treatment-), negative fluid agreement (fluid-, treatment-) and negative fluid discrepancy (fluid-, treatment+). For PFDs, fluid location and visual acuity were characterized. Results: Treatment and reading center fluid determination agreed in 72.1% (53.0% PFA, 19.1 ...

    9. Relationship Between Optic Nerve Appearance and Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness as Explored with Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Relationship Between Optic Nerve Appearance and Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness as Explored with Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Purpose: To study the relationship between the appearance of the optic nerve and the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness determined by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods: Records from patients with spectral domain -OCT imaging in a neuro-ophthalmology practice were reviewed. Eyes with glaucoma/glaucoma suspicion, macular/ optic nerve edema, pseudophakia, and with refractive errors > 6D were excluded. Optic nerve appearance by slit lamp biomicroscopy was related to the RNFL thickness by spectral domain -OCT and to visual field results. Results: Ninety-one patients (176 eyes; mean age: 49 ± 15 years) were included. Eighty-three eyes (47%) showed optic nerve ...

    11. Longitudinal study of vision and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in multiple sclerosis

      Longitudinal study of vision and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in multiple sclerosis

      Objective Cross-sectional studies of optical coherence tomography (OCT) show that retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness is reduced in multiple sclerosis (MS) and correlates with visual function. We determined how longitudinal changes in RNFL thickness relate to visual loss. We also examined patterns of RNFL thinning over time in MS eyes with and without a prior history of acute optic neuritis (ON). Methods Patients underwent OCT measurement of RNFL thickness at baseline and at 6-month intervals during a mean follow-up of 18 months at 3 centers. Low-contrast letter acuity (2.5%, 1.25% contrast) and visual acuity (VA) were assessed ...

    12. Retinal Imaging by Laser Polarimetry and Optical Coherence Tomography Evidence of Axonal Degeneration in Multiple Sclerosis

      Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and scanning laser polarimetry with variable corneal compensation (GDx) are similar yet provide information on different aspects of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) structure (thickness values similar to histology for OCT vs birefringence of microtubules for GDx). Objectives To compare the ability of OCT and GDx to distinguish eyes of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) from eyes of disease-free controls and thus identify RNFL abnormalities. We also sought to examine the capacity of these techniques to distinguish MS eyes from those without a history of optic neuritis and to correlate with visual function. Design Cross-sectional ...
