    2. Longitudinal Swept Source OCT Angiography of Juxtapapillary Retinal Capillary Hemangioblastoma

      Longitudinal Swept Source OCT Angiography of Juxtapapillary Retinal Capillary Hemangioblastoma

      In this case report, SS-OCTA identified the key diagnostic features of JRCH seen with multimodal imaging. Serial SS-OCTA imaging showed transient decreases in vascular congestion and exudation after intravitreal anti-VEGF injections. SS-OCTA may be the sole imaging modality needed for the diagnosis of JRCH, an important entity that is commonly misdiagnosed as disc edema or choroidal neovascularization. Transient responses to anti-VEGF therapy suggests that higher dose or sustained-release anti-VEGF therapy may be effective for retinal capillary hemangioblastomas.

    16. Attenuation correction assisted automatic segmentation for assessing choroidal thickness and vasculature with swept-source OCT

      Attenuation correction assisted automatic segmentation for assessing choroidal thickness and vasculature with swept-source OCT

      Swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) is being used more widely in clinical studies to investigate the choroid due to its deeper penetration under the retinal pigment epithelium and improved image quality compared with spectral domain OCT. However, automatic methods to reliably assess choroidal thickness and vasculature are still limited. This paper reports an approach that applies attenuation correction on SS-OCT structural scans to facilitate accurate automatic segmentation of the choroid and provides visualization of the choroidal vasculature without the necessity of OCT angiography. After attenuation correction, enhanced interlayer contrast at the choroidal-scleral interface was observed (from 0.13 ± 0 ...

      Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of an Amalric Choroidal Infarction in a Rare Presentation of Giant Cell Arteritis With Bilateral Corneal Edema

      A 73-year-old woman with 2 weeks of progressive painless vision loss was found to have bilateral corneal edema, jaw claudication, and temporal headache. Multimodal imaging revealed an Amalric choroidal infarct in the left eye visualized by widefield indocyanine green angiography and swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA). Prompt intravenous corticosteroid treatment resulted in 20/20 vision, and giant cell arteritis (GCA) was confirmed by a temporal artery biopsy. The case underscores the use of widefield SS-OCTA as a non-invasive test to aid in the diagnosis of GCA, as well as bilateral cornea edema as a rare presentation of GCA.

      Swept-Source OCT Angiography Identifies Choroidal Neovascularization Arising From a Choroidal Nevus

      Swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) was used to diagnose choroidal neovascularization (CNV) arising from a choroidal nevus. A 61-year-old woman initially presented with submacular hemorrhage. She was diagnosed with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and received three injections of bevacizumab (Avastin; Genentech, South San Francisco, CA). At a follow-up visit, SS-OCTA showed that the CNV appeared to arise from an adjacent choroidal nevus. This is the first report of using SS-OCTA to diagnose CNV associated with a choroidal nevus masquerading as neovascular AMD.

    20. Swept-Source OCT Angiographic Imaging of a Central Retinal Vein Occlusion During Pregnancy

      Swept-Source OCT Angiographic Imaging of a Central Retinal Vein Occlusion During Pregnancy

      To avoid fluorescein angiography in a pregnant woman diagnosed with a central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO), swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) was performed and showed no evidence of decreased central retinal perfusion leading to the diagnosis of a nonischemic CRVO. Five months after an intravitreal injection of steroid, both her vision and the retinal appearance had returned to normal. This case demonstrates how a noninvasive, safe, 12 mm × 12 mm SS-OCTA image of a CRVO is useful in evaluating the retinal perfusion at presentation and follow-up during pregnancy.

      Optical coherence tomography angiography: A comprehensive review of current methods and clinical applications

      OCT has revolutionized the practice of ophthalmology over the past 10–20 years. Advances in OCT technology have allowed for the creation of novel OCT-based methods. OCT-Angiography (OCTA) is one such method that has rapidly gained clinical acceptance since it was approved by the FDA in late 2016. OCTA images are based on the variable backscattering of light from the vascular and neurosensory tissue in the retina. Since the intensity and phase of backscattered light from retinal tissue varies based on the intrinsic movement of the tissue (e.g. red blood cells are moving, but neurosensory tissue is static), OCTA ...
