    1. Use of Handheld Intraoperative Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in a Variety of Vitreoretinal Diseases

      Use of Handheld Intraoperative Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in a Variety of Vitreoretinal Diseases

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The use of intraoperative optical coherence tomography (iOCT) has been described with a variety of imaging devices and techniques. The purpose of this investigation is to examine the role of iVue (Optovue, Fremont, CA), a commercially available, handheld spectral-domain iOCT system, in vitreoretinal surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS For this retrospective, observational case series, patients who underwent a vitreoretinal surgical procedure and were imaged with the iVue were identified. Images were qualitatively assessed. RESULTS: Five cases were identified, including an examination under anesthesia, epiretinal membrane, macular hole, retinal detachment, and non-clearing vitreous hemorrhage in the setting of proliferative ...

    2. Analysis of short-term change in subfoveal choroidal thickness in eyes with age-related macular degeneration using optical coherence tomography

      Analysis of short-term change in subfoveal choroidal thickness in eyes with age-related macular degeneration using optical coherence tomography

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To measure the subfoveal choroidal thickness in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) over 6 months. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective, observational study of patients with AMD followed up for 6 months at the New England Eye Center. Baseline and 6-month follow-up subfoveal choroidal thickness was measured using spectral-domain OCT and compared. RESULTS: For the entire cohort, there was statistically significant thinning of the subfoveal choroidal thickness at 6 months compared to baseline that was driven by the cohort of patients with neovascular AMD (181.2 ± 75 μm to 173.4 ± 63 μm; P = .049). CONCLUSION: There ...

    3. Analysis of the Morphology and Vascular Layers of the Choroid in Retinitis Pigmentosa Using Spectral-Domain OCT

      Analysis of the Morphology and Vascular Layers of the Choroid in Retinitis Pigmentosa Using Spectral-Domain OCT

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To analyze choroidal morphology and vascular layers in eyes with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Cross-sectional, retrospective analysis of 14 patients (14 eyes) with RP and 33 healthy subjects (33 eyes) who underwent high-definition one-line raster scanning at a single center. Two independent raters evaluated the morphology, thickness, and vascular layers of the choroid in both groups. RESULTS: The choroid had an irregular shape in 11 of 14 eyes (79%) with RP. The thickest point of choroid was not subfoveal as in healthy eyes, and exaggerated nasal thinning of the choroid ...

    4. Analysis of Choroidal Morphologic Features and Vasculature in Healthy Eyes Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Analysis of Choroidal Morphologic Features and Vasculature in Healthy Eyes Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Objective: To analyze the morphologic features and vasculature of the choroid in healthy eyes using spectral-domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT).Design: Cross-sectional retrospective review.Participants: Forty-two healthy subjects (42 eyes) with no ocular disease who underwent high-definition scanning with Cirrus high-definition OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., Dublin, CA) at the New England Eye Center, Boston, Massachusetts, between November 2009 and September 2010.Methods: The SD OCT images were evaluated for morphologic features of the choroid, including the shape of the choroid–scleral border, location of the thickest point of choroid, and regions of focal choroidal thinning. Total choroidal thickness ...
