    1. OCT-Detected Optic Nerve Head Neural Canal Direction, Obliqueness and Minimum Cross-Sectional Area in Healthy Eyes

      OCT-Detected Optic Nerve Head Neural Canal Direction, Obliqueness and Minimum Cross-Sectional Area in Healthy Eyes

      Purpose To assess anterior scleral canal opening (ASCO) offset relative to Bruch’s membrane opening (BMO) (ASCO/BMO offset) so as to determine neural canal direction, obliqueness, and minimum cross-sectional area (NCMCA) in 362 healthy eyes. Design Cross-sectional study Methods After OCT optic nerve head (ONH) and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) imaging, BMO and ASCO were manually segmented and planes, centroids, size and shape were calculated. Neural canal direction was defined by projecting the neural canal axis vector (connecting BMO and ASCO centroids) onto the BMO plane. Neural canal obliqueness was defined by the angle between the neural ...

    2. Factors Influencing Optical Coherence Tomography Peripapillary Choroidal Thickness: A Multicenter Study

      Factors Influencing Optical Coherence Tomography Peripapillary Choroidal Thickness: A Multicenter Study

      Purpose : To quantify peripapillary choroidal thickness (PCT) and the factors that influence it in healthy participants who represent the racial and ethnic composition of the U.S. population. Methods : A total of 362 healthy participants underwent optical coherence tomography (OCT) enhanced depth imaging of the optic nerve head with a 24 radial B-scan pattern aligned to the fovea to Bruch's membrane opening axis. Bruch's membrane, anterior scleral canal opening (ASCO), and the anterior scleral surface were manually segmented. PCT was measured at 100, 300, 500, 700, 900, and 1100 μm from the ASCO globally and within 12 clock-hour ...

    3. Comparing Optic Nerve Head Rim Width, Rim Area, and Peripapillary Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness to Axon Count in Experimental Glaucoma

      Comparing Optic Nerve Head Rim Width, Rim Area, and Peripapillary Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness to Axon Count in Experimental Glaucoma

      Purpose : We compare spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) measurements of minimum rim width (MRW), minimum rim area (MRA), and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) to complete orbital optic nerve axon counts in nonhuman primates (NHP) with unilateral experimental glaucoma (EG). Methods : Biweekly SDOCT measurements of MRW, MRA, and RNFLT were acquired under manometric IOP control (10 mm Hg) in 51 NHP during baseline (mean ± SD, 5.0 ± 1.6 sessions) and after laser photocoagulation was applied to the trabecular meshwork of one eye to induce chronic IOP elevation. At the study endpoint (predefined for each NHP), 100% axon ...

    4. Age-related Differences in Longitudinal Structural Change by Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Early Experimental Glaucoma

      Age-related Differences in Longitudinal Structural Change by Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Early Experimental Glaucoma

      Purpose. To characterize age-related differences in the magnitude of Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SDOCT) structural change in early experimental glaucoma (EG). Methods. Both eyes from 4 young (1.4 - 2.6 yrs) and 4 old (18.6 - 21.9 yrs) rhesus monkeys were imaged at least 3 times at baseline, and then every 2 weeks following laser-induced, chronic, unilateral IOP elevation until the onset of EG (Confocal Scanning Laser Tomographic surface change confirmed twice). Two to 20 weeks after EG onset, animals were sacrificed and optic nerve axon counts for all eyes were performed. Masked operators delineated retinal and ...

    5. Anatomic vs. Acquired Image Frame Discordance in Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Minimum Rim Measurements

      Anatomic vs. Acquired Image Frame Discordance in Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Minimum Rim Measurements

      Purpose To quantify the effects of using the fovea to Bruch's membrane opening (FoBMO) axis as the nasal-temporal midline for 30° sectoral (clock-hour) spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) optic nerve head (ONH) minimum rim width (MRW) and area (MRA) calculations. Methods The internal limiting membrane and BMO were delineated within 24 radial ONH B-scans in 222 eyes of 222 participants with ocular hypertension and glaucoma. For each eye the fovea was marked within the infrared reflectance image, the FoBMO angle (θ) relative to the acquired image frame (AIF) horizontal was calculated, the ONH was divided into 30°sectors using ...

    6. Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Enhanced Depth Imaging of the Normal and Glaucomatous Nonhuman Primate Optic Nerve Head

      Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Enhanced Depth Imaging of the Normal and Glaucomatous Nonhuman Primate Optic Nerve Head
      Purpose. To test whether the enhanced depth imaging (EDI) modality improves anterior and posterior lamina cribrosa surface (ALCS and PLCS) visibility compared with conventional spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods. Conventional and EDI SD-OCT scans were obtained 30 minutes after IOP was manometrically lowered to 10 mm Hg in both eyes of 14 nonhuman primates (NHPs) with unilateral experimental glaucoma (EG). Thirteen horizontal and seven vertical radial B-scans of each SD-OCT data set were delineated by one operator masked to image type. Delineated ALCS and PLCS points were projected to 1 of 100 equal-sized subregions of the neural canal opening ...

    7. Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SDOCT) Enhanced Depth Imaging (EDI) of the Normal and Glaucomatous Non-human Primate (NHP) Optic Nerve Head (ONH)

      Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SDOCT) Enhanced Depth Imaging (EDI) of the Normal and Glaucomatous Non-human Primate (NHP) Optic Nerve Head (ONH)
      Purpose: To test whether the EDI modality improves anterior and posterior lamina cribrosa surface (ALCS and PLCS) visibility compared to conventional SDOCT. Methods: Conventional and EDI SDOCT scans were obtained 30 minutes after IOP was manometrically lowered to 10 mmHg in both eyes of 14 non-human primates (NHPs) with unilateral experimental glaucoma (EG). Thirteen horizontal and 7 vertical radial B-scans of each SDOCT data set were delineated by one operator masked to image type. Delineated ALCS and PLCS points were projected to one of 100 equal-sized sub-regions of the neural canal opening (NCO) reference plane and the number of delineated ...
