    1. The qualitative assessment of optical coherence tomography and the central retinal sensitivity in patients with retinitis pigmentosa

      The qualitative assessment of optical coherence tomography and the central retinal sensitivity in patients with retinitis pigmentosa

      Purpose To analyze the relationships between qualitative and quantitative parameters of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and the central retinal sensitivity in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Materials and methods Ninety-three eyes of 93 patients were finally enrolled, with a median age (quartile) of 58 (24.5) years. We assessed the patients using SD-OCT and the 10–2 program of a Humphry Field Analyzer (HFA). As a qualitative parameter, two graders independently classified the patients’ SD-OCT images into five severity grades (grades 1–5) based on the severity of damage to the photoreceptor inner and outer segments (IS/OS) layer ...

    2. Intravitreal Cellular Infiltrate Imaged As Punctate Spots By Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Eyes With Posterior Segment Inflammatory Disease

      Intravitreal Cellular Infiltrate Imaged As Punctate Spots By Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Eyes With Posterior Segment Inflammatory Disease

      Purpose: To investigate the posterior segment in cases of clinically evident intraocular inflammation for punctate reflections consistent with that expected to arise from inflammatory cells. Methods: Patients with ocular inflammatory diseases imaged with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) were retrospectively reviewed. Results: There were 7 patients with mean age of 66.7 years, and the diagnosis was toxoplasmosis in 5 eyes, multiple evanescent white dot syndrome in 1 eye, and posttraumatic outer retinitis in 1 eye. At baseline, the SD-OCT showed vitreous cells as numerous punctate spots in the vitreous in all seven eyes. The SD-OCT also showed similar-sized hyperreflective ...

    3. Cross-Sectional And En Face Optical Coherence Tomographic Features Of Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy.

      Purpose: To correlate optical coherence tomography (OCT)-ophthalmoscope images with angiographic signs of polypoidal lesions and branching network vessels in eyes with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). Methods: The authors prospectively examined 50 consecutive eyes with PCV using the OCT-ophthalmoscope and fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA). Results: ICGA showed polypoidal lesions in all eyes. In 18 of 22 eyes with a retinal pigment epithelial detachment (PED), OCT-ophthalmoscope cross-sectional B-scan images showed a central dome-shaped PED and a contiguous small PED corresponding to the polypoidal lesions on ICGA. Transverse C-scan images showed an irregularity or protrusion of the highly reflective retinal ...
