    1. The Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in Identifying Retinal Biomarkers in FTD: A Review

      The Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in Identifying Retinal Biomarkers in FTD: A Review

      Purpose of Review: Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is often misdiagnosed or recognized late. Clinical heterogeneity and overlap with other dementias impede accurate diagnosis. FTD biomarkers are limited, expensive and invasive. We present a narrative review of the current literature focused on optical coherence tomography (OCT) to identify retinal biomarkers of dementia, discuss OCT findings in FTD, and explore the implications of an FTD-specific ocular biomarker for research and patient care. Recent Findings: Recent studies suggest that outer retinal thinning detected via OCT may function as a novel ocular biomarker of FTD. The degree and rate of inner retinal thinning may correlate ...

    2. Optical coherence tomography–guided flow diversion for aneurysmal treatment

      Optical coherence tomography–guided flow diversion for aneurysmal treatment

      A 28-year-old man presenting with right third nerve palsy was diagnosed with a giant unruptured aneurysm supplied by the right posterior communicating and cerebral arteries (figure 1, A and B). The aneurysm was treated with flow-diverting stent-assisted coiling. Two months later, he presented with new-onset left-sided weakness, and MRI showed increased edema in the thalamus (figure 1C) and increased aneurysm size and no filling. There was no evidence of stent malapposition with high-resolution cone-beam (VASO) CT (figure 2). Angiography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging demonstrated no stent endothelialization over a patent portion of the aneurysm neck (figure 3). 1 ...

    3. The application of optical coherence tomography in neurologic diseases

      The application of optical coherence tomography in neurologic diseases

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become an increasingly popular tool in various disciplines of medicine, particularly ophthalmology and neurology. It is an imaging technology that has revolutionized the practice of ophthalmology by providing anatomic detail of pathologic changes in the retina and optic nerve. OCT is routinely used as an ancillary test that can aid in the diagnosis and monitoring of neuro-ophthalmic diseases such as papilledema, optic neuritis, and neuroretinitis. OCT measurements have also been shown to predict visual prognosis in compressive optic neuropathies. Changes in OCT measurements have been used to study the course of particular neurologic diseases such ...
