    1. Retinal and Choroidal Perfusion Status in the Area of Laser Scars Assessed With Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Retinal and Choroidal Perfusion Status in the Area of Laser Scars Assessed With Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Purpose : To evaluate the perfusion status of the retina and choriocapillaris in the area of laser scars on swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) images of eyes previously treated with panretinal photocoagulation (PRP). Methods : Cross-sectional exploratory analysis of swept-source OCTA images, which were retrospectively reviewed for laser scars. The appearance of the capillary networks in the area of previous laser were evaluated following a three-step grading system (normal/sparse/missing capillary network). The superficial and deep capillary plexus of the retina and the choriocapillaris were graded separately. Results : A total of 3140 laser scars in 54 eyes of 31 patients ...

    2. Systematic ultrastructural comparison of swept-source and full-depth spectral domain optical coherence tomography imaging of diabetic macular oedema

      Systematic ultrastructural comparison of swept-source and full-depth spectral domain optical coherence tomography imaging of diabetic macular oedema

      Background/Aims Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is commonly used to diagnose and assess diabetic macular oedema (DME). Swept-source OCT (SS-OCT) promises improved imaging depth and more independence from media opacities. Heidelberg Spectralis full-depth imaging (FDI) combines details at different depths to one representation. The aim of this study was to determine the comparability of the imaging methods concerning DME ultrastructure. Methods Two graders assessed the presence of typical DME phenomena in eyes with centre-involving DME on Topcon Atlantis SS-OCT and Heidelberg Spectralis FDI spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) B-scans. Retinal layer segmentation was corrected and choroidal layers were manually segmented. Graders measured ...

    3. 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 ...

    4. Optic nerve head morphology in primary open‐angle glaucoma and nonarteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy measured with spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Optic nerve head morphology in primary open‐angle glaucoma and nonarteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy measured with spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Purpose Optic nerve head (ONH) parameters as well as circumpapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness values measured with two different spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD‐OCT) machines (Spectralis ® and Cirrus ® OCT) have been compared between two patient groups, primary open‐angle glaucoma (POAG), nonarteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) and healthy controls. A comparison of the performance of the two OCT machines was made. Methods Twenty healthy controls, 20 POAG and 20 NAION patients with comparable visual field defects were included. Comparison between groups was made using anova and post hoc t ‐tests. To evaluate the diagnostic power ...

    5. RETINAL MORPHOMETRY CHANGES MEASURED WITH SPECTRAL DOMAIN-OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY AFTER PAN-RETINAL PHOTOCOAGULATION IN PATIENTS WITH PROLIFERATIVE DIABETIC RETINOPATHY

      RETINAL MORPHOMETRY CHANGES MEASURED WITH SPECTRAL DOMAIN-OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY AFTER PAN-RETINAL PHOTOCOAGULATION IN PATIENTS WITH PROLIFERATIVE DIABETIC RETINOPATHY

      Purpose: To identify the effects of pan-retinal laser treatment on the integrity of neurosensory retinal layers. Methods: Patients were examined with fluorescence angiography after a standardized examination for diabetic retinopathy and a peripapillary ring scan with spectral domain optical coherence tomography. A single-session pan-retinal photocoagulation was performed using the PASCAL pattern scanning argon laser applying a minimum of 1,500 spots. Optical coherence tomography was evaluated more than 6 months. Results: Eighteen eyes of 12 consecutive patients with new onset, treatment-naive proliferative diabetic retinopathy secondary to diabetes Type 2 were treated and retinal optical coherence tomography morphology evaluated. Retinal nerve ...

    6. SAVE: a grading protocol for clinically significant diabetic macular oedema based on optical coherence tomography and fluorescein angiography

      SAVE: a grading protocol for clinically significant diabetic macular oedema based on optical coherence tomography and fluorescein angiography

      Aim To analyse a new grading protocol for clinically significant diabetic macular oedema (CSME) based on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and fluorescein angiography (FA). Methods 56 eyes of 40 patients with CSME were examined by Cirrus OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec), Spectralis HRA and OCT (Heidelberg Engineering) on the same day. Three graders analysed images based on a newly developed grading protocol integrating all relevant information from OCT and FA. The protocol defined four categories: (1) subretinal fluid (category ‘S’); (2) the planimetrically measured oedematous area (category ‘A’); (3) vitreo-retinal interface abnormalities (category ‘V’); and (4) CSME aetiology (category ...

    7. DISTRIBUTION OF INTRARETINAL EXUDATES IN DIABETIC MACULAR EDEMA DURING ANTI-VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR THERAPY OBSERVED BY SPECTRAL DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY AND FUNDUS PHOTOGRAPHY

      DISTRIBUTION OF INTRARETINAL EXUDATES IN DIABETIC MACULAR EDEMA DURING ANTI-VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR THERAPY OBSERVED BY SPECTRAL DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY AND FUNDUS PHOTOGRAPHY

      Purpose: To evaluate changes in the distribution and morphology of intraretinal microexudates and hard exudates (HEs) during intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor therapy in patients with persistent diabetic macular edema. Methods: Twenty-four patients with persistent diabetic macular edema after photocoagulation were investigated in this prospective cohort study. Each eye was assigned to a loading dose of three anti-vascular endothelial growth factor treatments at monthly intervals. Additional single treatments were performed if diabetic macular edema persisted or recurred. Intraretinal exudates were analyzed over 6 months using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and fundus photography. Results: Before treatment, microexudates were detected ...
