    4. Mitigating the effects of choroidal hyper- and hypo-transmission defects on choroidal vascularity index assessments using optical coherence tomography

      Mitigating the effects of choroidal hyper- and hypo-transmission defects on choroidal vascularity index assessments using optical coherence tomography

      Background: Changes in choroidal vascularity index (CVI) are associated with multiple choroid-related ocular diseases. CVI is calculated as the area/volume ratio of vessels in the choroid, which could be affected by alterations in regional signal intensities due to hypo-transmission defects (hypoTDs) caused by drusen and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) detachments, and hyper-transmission defects (hyperTDs) caused by the absence of RPE. To develop a simulation model to verify the CVI assessments in eyes with hyper/hypoTDs and demonstrate that accurate CVIs can be achieved after attenuation correction on swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Methods: A simulation model was developed on ...

    14. Swept-Source OCT En Face Imaging of Paravascular Inner Retinal Defects

      Swept-Source OCT En Face Imaging of Paravascular Inner Retinal Defects

      Widefield swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) was performed on eyes with paravascular inner retinal defects (PIRDs) and the morphological alterations of PIRDs were described. Patients with PIRDs were imaged using 12 mm × 12 mm SS-OCTA scans. En face structural and angiographic images of the superficial retinal layers were reviewed along with retinal thickness maps. SS-OCTA en face structural images identified dark, scalloped regions along major retinal veins that corresponded to PIRDs on B-scans. The authors concluded that imaging with both structural and angiographic en face OCT was useful for the diagnosis and monitoring of patients with PIRDs.

      Can there be smoke without fire? Optical coherence tomography angiography has the answer

      Macular edema is typically seen on optical coherence tomography (OCT) as fluid-filled cystic alterations that cause increased retinal thickness. The increased OCT reflectivity within these intraretinal spaces in the outer avascular retina can exhibit flow-like properties when imaged using OCT angiography (OCTA). The motion signal arising from within these intraretinal cavities corresponds to a feature of exudation known as suspended scattering particles in motion (SSPiM). We present multimodal imaging of a patient with SSPiM who underwent partial resolution of this OCTA finding.

    16. Widefield SS-OCTA for Localization of Retinal Nematode in Diffuse Unilateral Subacute Neuroretinitis

      Widefield SS-OCTA for Localization of Retinal Nematode in Diffuse Unilateral Subacute Neuroretinitis

      Diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) is a rare form of chorioretinitis caused by retinal infestation by nematode larvae. Definitive diagnosis requires visualization of a motile nematode, but this can be challenging because the nematode is small, translucent, and usually motionless with overlying media opacity from cellular inflammation. The authors describe a case of DUSN in which widefield swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography was used to localize a midperipheral intraretinal nematode facilitating subsequent clinical observation of movement. Inflammation resolved after focal laser photocoagulation of the nematode with recovery of visual acuity to 20/20.

    19. Replacement of polyps with type 1 macular neovascularization in polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy imaged with swept source OCT angiography

      Replacement of polyps with type 1 macular neovascularization in polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy imaged with swept source OCT angiography

      Purpose: To investigate the morphological changes of polyps in eyes with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) after treatment with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitors using swept source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA). Observations: Following anti-VEGF therapy, polyps were found to evolve into typical type 1 macular neovascularization (MNV) in five eyes. In all of these five eyes, a polypoidal lesion was detected adjacent to a serous or hemorrhagic retinal pigment epithelial detachment (PED). Conclusions and importance: Polypoidal lesions in PCV can evolve into typical type 1 MNV. This morphological evolution suggests that these polyps are clusters of tangled vessels that ...

    24. 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.
