    3. Optical coherence tomography in pediatric patients: a clinical review

      Optical coherence tomography in pediatric patients: a clinical review

      Optical coherence tomography has improved the ophthalmic clinical examination due to its ability to more accurately characterize pathology of the eye. Optical coherence tomography is now an integral imaging modality for many adult diseases of the retina and is a ubiquitous part of a retinal practice. However, although its use in adults is well recognized, the adoption of optical coherence tomography in pediatric patients may be undervalued as macular diseases in children are relatively uncommon. Recent technological advancements have made optical coherence tomography scans quicker and more precise, generating normative data and leading to more widespread use in children. In ...

    4. En Face OCT of Type 2 Neovascularization:A Reappraisal of the Pitchfork Sign

      En Face OCT of Type 2 Neovascularization:A Reappraisal of the Pitchfork Sign

      To describe a new en face optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging feature of type 2 choroidal neovascularization (CNV) and illustrate the OCT angiographic (OCTA) findings in these eyes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Multimodal images of patients with type 2 CNV who displayed the typical “pitchfork” sign with cross-sectional OCT were reviewed. Corresponding en face structural OCT and OCTA images were analyzed to correlate the finding before and after anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy.

      Purpose : To evaluate retinal vascular status during pregnancy by using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods : Women in their third trimester of pregnancy and nonpregnant age-matched women were recruited for this prospective, case-control study. Subjects were imaged with OCTA. Main outcome measures were foveal avascular zone parameters, perfusion density (PD) percentage in the superficial retinal capillary plexus (SCP), PD percentage in the deep retinal capillary plexus (DCP), SCP vessel length density (VLD), DCP-VLD, and choriocapillaris (CC) flow voids (i.e., flow deficits in the CC).

      VISUAL FUNCTION AND OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY FEATURES IN CHILDREN BORN PRETERM

      Purpose: Preterm children have an increased risk of impaired vision from retinopathy, strabismus, and high refractive error. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between foveal parameters generated by optical coherence tomography angiography and visual function in preterm children. Methods: Eighty eyes (32 eyes of former preterm infants and 48 age-matched full-term control eyes) were analyzed. Subjects underwent complete eye examinations including best-corrected visual acuity and retinal imaging with the Optovue XR Avanti optical coherence tomography angiography device. Foveal morphologic parameters including foveal depth, central foveal thickness, inner retinal area, and outer retinal area were measured on ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of the Macula in Adults With a History of Preterm Birth

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the fovea microvasculature in adult subjects with history of preterm birth using optical coherence angiography (OCTA). PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this retrospective study, macular OCTA images were obtained from adult subjects with a history of preterm birth. The presence of the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) and its size was determined. RESULTS: Ten eyes from six subjects with ages ranging from 26 years old to 65 years old were evaluated. A distinct FAZ was not observed in three eyes (30%). The FAZ was small in other eyes, ranging from 0.07 mm 2 to 0.18 ...

      Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomographic Angiography in Children With Amblyopia

      Importance Amblyopia is the most common cause of visual impairment in childhood, with a prevalence of 1% to 4% in children in the United States. To date, no studies using noninvasive optical coherence tomographic angiography (OCTA) have measured blood flow in the retinal capillary layers in children with amblyopia. Objective To evaluate the retinal and microvascular features using OCTA in children (<18 years) with amblyopia.

    15. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography of conjunctival mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma with presumed choroidal involvement

      Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography of conjunctival mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma with presumed choroidal involvement
      Background  Conjunctival mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma has been well-described, but rarely do these lesions demonstrate intraocular involvement. We report a case of conjunctival MALT lymphoma with intraocular involvement and novel spectral-domain ocular coherence tomography (SD-OCT) findings. Patient and methods  A 75-year-old woman with biopsy-proven MALT lymphoma of the conjunctiva presented with ipsilateral yellowish diffuse choroidal infiltrates on fundoscopic examination. Choroidal involvement was documented clinically, on ultrasonography, on fluorescein angiography, and by SD-OCT. Treatment consisted of 3 weeks of oral doxycycline and six cycles of systemic chemotherapy with cyclophosphamide, vincristine, prednisone, and rituximab. Results  There was no evidence of progression ...
