    1. Comparison of Spectralis and Cirrus spectral domain optical coherence tomography for the objective morphometric assessment of the neuroretinal rim width

      Comparison of Spectralis and Cirrus spectral domain optical coherence tomography for the objective morphometric assessment of the neuroretinal rim width

      Purpose The assessment of cup-disc ratio as a surrogate parameter for the neuroretinal rim width (NRW) of the optic nerve is well established, but prone to human error and imprecision. Objective assessment of the NRW is provided by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). This study is the first to systematically compare NRW measurements acquired with the Carl Zeiss Meditech Cirrus HD-OCT 5000 and the Heidelberg Engineering Spectralis SD-OCT. Methods In this cross-sectional study, 20 eyes of each 20 glaucoma patients and 20 age-matched healthy controls underwent ophthalmic examination, SD-OCT imaging, and computer perimetry. Regression analyses were performed for the ...

    2. Mapping of Corneal Layer Thicknesses With Polarization-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography Using a Conical Scan Pattern

      Mapping of Corneal Layer Thicknesses With Polarization-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography Using a Conical Scan Pattern

      Purpose : We demonstrate segmentation and mapping of corneal layers (epithelium, Bowman's layer, and stroma) across the entire cornea (limbus to limbus), using additional contrast provided by polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) and analyze the reproducibility of the procedure. Methods : A custom built PS-OCT system operating at 1045 nm central wavelength with conical scanning was used for image acquisition. Conical scanning allows for almost perpendicular beam incidence on the corneal surface and provides good signal quality over the entire field of view. Epithelium, Bowman's layer, and stroma were segmented using the additional contrast provided by PS-OCT. Thickness maps were ...

    3. Correlation between retinal vessel density profile and circumpapillary RNFL thickness measured with Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography

      Correlation between retinal vessel density profile and circumpapillary RNFL thickness measured with Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography

      Aim To assess circumpapillary retinal vessel density (RVD) profiles and correlate them with retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness measured by Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT). Methods RNFL thickness of 106 healthy volunteers was measured using Cirrus FD-OCT. A proprietary software was developed in MATLAB to assess the thickness and position of circumpapillary retinal vessels using the scanning laser ophthalmoscopy fundus image, centred on the optic disc. The individual retinal vessel positions and thickness values were integrated in a 256-sector RVD profile, and intrasubject and intersubject correlations were calculated. Results The mean value±SD for intrasubject correlation between RVD ...

    4. Measuring Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Birefringence, Retardation, and Thickness Using Wide-Field, High-Speed Polarization Sensitive Spectral Domain OCT

      Measuring Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Birefringence, Retardation, and Thickness Using Wide-Field, High-Speed Polarization Sensitive Spectral Domain OCT

      Purpose. We presented a novel polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) system for measuring retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) birefringence, retardation, and thickness, and report on the repeatability of acquiring these quantities. Methods. A new PS-OCT system, measuring at 840 nm, was developed that supports scan angles of up to 40° × 40° with an A-scan rate of 70 kHz. To test the performance and reproducibility, we measured 10 eyes of 5 healthy human volunteers five times each. All volunteers were imaged further with scanning laser polarimetry (SLP). The obtained RNFL birefringence, retardation, and thickness maps were averaged, and standard deviation ...
