    1. Multi-scale and -contrast sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography

      Multi-scale and -contrast sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography

      Background: The roles of the retinal microvasculature and the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in maintaining the health and metabolic activity of the retina lend great clinical value to their high-resolution visualization. Methods: By integrating polarization diversity detection (PDD) into multi-scale and -contrast sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography (MSC-SAO-OCT), we have developed a novel multi-contrast SAO OCT system for imaging pigment in the RPE as well as flow in the retinal capillaries using OCT angiography (OCTA). Aberration correction was performed based on the image quality using transmissive deformable optical elements. Results: MSC-SAO-OCTA imaging was performed at multiple fields-of-view (FOVs) with ...

    2. Adaptive optics with combined optical coherence tomography and scanning laser ophthalmoscopy for in vivo mouse retina imaging

      Adaptive optics with combined optical coherence tomography and scanning laser ophthalmoscopy for in vivo mouse retina imaging

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO) are two state-of-the-art imaging technologies commonly used to study retina. Adaptive Optics (AO) methodologies enable high-fidelity correction of ocular aberrations, resulting in improved resolution and sensitivity for both SLO and OCT systems. Here we present work integrating OCT into a previously described mouse retinal AO-SLO system, allowing simultaneous reflectance and fluorescence imaging. The new system allows simultaneous data acquisition of AO-SLO and AO-OCT, facilitating registration and comparison of data from both modalities. The system has data acquisition speed of 200 kHz A-scans/pixel, and high volumetric resolution.

    3. Lens-based wavefront sensorless adaptive optics swept source OCT

      Lens-based wavefront sensorless adaptive optics swept source OCT

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has revolutionized modern ophthalmology, providing depth resolved images of the retinal layers in a system that is suited to a clinical environment. Although the axial resolution of OCT system, which is a function of the light source bandwidth, is sufficient to resolve retinal features at a micrometer scale, the lateral resolution is dependent on the delivery optics and is limited by ocular aberrations. Through the combination of wavefront sensorless adaptive optics and the use of dual deformable transmissive optical elements, we present a compact lens-based OCT system at an imaging wavelength of 1060 nm for high ...

    4. Progress on developing wavefront sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography for in vivo retinal imaging in mice

      Progress on developing wavefront sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography for in vivo retinal imaging in mice

      We present a new design for a wavefront sensorless adaptive optics (WS-AO) Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) system for small animal retinal imaging in vivo. Without the optical complications necessary for inclusion of a wavefront sensor in the optical system, this version of WS-AO FD-OCT system has a simplified optical design, including elimination of long focal length scanning optics and optical conjugation of vertical and horizontal scanners. This modification provides a modular large Field of View for retinal screening (25 degree visual angle), while also allowing a “zoom” capability for allocating all the scanning resources to a smaller region ...

    5. In vivo imaging of human photoreceptor mosaic with wavefront sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography

      In vivo imaging of human photoreceptor mosaic with wavefront sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography

      Wavefront sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography (WSAO-OCT) is a novel imaging technique for in vivo high-resolution depth-resolved imaging that mitigates some of the challenges encountered with the use of sensor-based adaptive optics designs. This technique replaces the Hartmann Shack wavefront sensor used to measure aberrations with a depth-resolved image-driven optimization algorithm, with the metric based on the OCT volumes acquired in real-time. The custom-built ultrahigh-speed GPU processing platform and fast modal optimization algorithm presented in this paper was essential in enabling real-time, in vivo imaging of human retinas with wavefront sensorless AO correction. WSAO-OCT is especially advantageous for developing ...

    6. Wavefront sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography for in vivo retinal imaging in mice

      Wavefront sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography for in vivo retinal imaging in mice

      e present wavefront sensorless adaptive optics (WSAO) Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) for in vivo small animal retinal imaging. WSAO is attractive especially for mouse retinal imaging because it simplifies optical design and eliminates the need for wavefront sensing, which is difficult in the small animal eye. GPU accelerated processing of the OCT data permitted real-time extraction of image quality metrics (intensity) for arbitrarily selected retinal layers to be optimized. Modal control of a commercially available segmented deformable mirror (IrisAO Inc.) provided rapid convergence using a sequential search algorithm. Image quality improvements with WSAO OCT are presented for both ...
