    2. Phase-Variance Optical Coherence Tomographic Angiography Imaging of Choroidal Perfusion Changes Associated With Acute Posterior Multifocal Placoid Pigment Epitheliopathy

      Phase-Variance Optical Coherence Tomographic Angiography Imaging of Choroidal Perfusion Changes Associated With Acute Posterior Multifocal Placoid Pigment Epitheliopathy

      This case report uses phase-variance optical coherence tomographic angiography to demonstrate transient inner choroidal flow changes associated with acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy. Acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) is characterized by bilateral multiple placoid white-gray lesions of the posterior pole at the level of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and/or choriocapillaris, which self-resolve with recovery of vision. 1 , 2 The etiology is unknown, but APMPPE has been associated with viral prodromes and vasculitis. The placoid lesions are thought to represent focal RPE inflammation or choriocapillaris ischemia based on fluorescein angiogram findings of early hypofluorescence and late ...

    5. Optical imaging of the chorioretinal vasculature in the living human eye

      Optical imaging of the chorioretinal vasculature in the living human eye

      Detailed visualization of microvascular changes in the human retina is clinically limited by the capabilities of angiography imaging, a 2D fundus photograph that requires an intravenous injection of fluorescent dye. Whereas current angiography methods enable visualization of some retinal capillary detail, they do not adequately reveal the choriocapillaris or other microvascular features beneath the retina. We have developed a noninvasive microvascular imaging technique called phase-variance optical coherence tomography (pvOCT), which identifies vasculature three dimensionally through analysis of data acquired with OCT systems. The pvOCT imaging method is not only capable of generating capillary perfusion maps for the retina, but it ...

    10. Reproducibility of Macular Thickness Measurement Among Five OCT Instruments: Effects of Image Resolution, Image Registration, and Eye Tracking

      Reproducibility of Macular Thickness Measurement Among Five OCT Instruments: Effects of Image Resolution, Image Registration, and Eye Tracking

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of image resolution, eye tracking, and image registration on central macular thickness reproducibility (rCMT) among spectral-domain and time-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT and TD-OCT) instruments. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Seventy-six eyes were imaged (44 normal, 32 maculopathy) either twice using four SD-OCT and one TD-OCT devices or three times using Spectralis SD-OCT (with and without eye tracking) (Heidelberg Engineering, Inc., Heidelberg, Germany). Cirrus images (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA) were further analyzed with three-point image registration. RESULTS: All instruments had superior rCMT in normal versus pathologic eyes (P < .001). No difference in rCMT was noted among instruments in normal eyes (P = .92), but TD-OCT was superior to SD-OCT (P = .017) in pathologic eyes. Cirrus image registration improved rCMT for normal eyes (P = .04), with borderline improvement in pathologic eyes (P = .06). Spectralis eye tracking improved rCMT in normal (P = .01) and pathologic (P = .004) eyes. CONCLUSION: Higher image resolution with SD-OCT may not improve rCMT, but image registration and eye tracking options may improve rCMT.
