    1. Features and Diagnostic Accuracy of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration

      Features and Diagnostic Accuracy of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration

      ntroduction Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the important causes of visual impairment in aging population. Fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) is gold standard for the diagnosis of neovascular AMD (nAMD) while optical coherence tomography (OCT) aids in the diagnosis of nAMD and is very useful for follow-up. OCT angiography (OCTA) is an evolving imaging technology that can be used as a valid diagnostic tool to study morphology of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) that is seen in nAMD. This study was conducted with the objective to determine diagnostic accuracy and OCTA features of occult and classic CNV in patients with nAMD ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in a Case of Cosmetic Laser Induced Retinal Injury

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in a Case of Cosmetic Laser Induced Retinal Injury

      We report the first known case of iris and retinal injury using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) images following cosmetic laser injury. A 23-year-old female developed left iris and retinal injury post inadvertent firing of a 755 nm Alexandrite cosmetic laser. The patient had no significant past medical history and the injury resulted from inappropriate eye protection during laser use. Injury from the laser caused damage to the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), iris pigment epithelium (IPE), and ciliary body epithelium (CPE). The OCTA imaging modality detected the vascular injury caused by the Alexandrite 755 nm laser to the choroid and ...

    4. Frequency Domain-optical Coherence Tomography of Coronary Arteries Using a Diluted Iodinated Contrast-saline Mix with 5-Fr Guide Catheters

      Frequency Domain-optical Coherence Tomography of Coronary Arteries Using a Diluted Iodinated Contrast-saline Mix with 5-Fr Guide Catheters

      Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is currently mostly performed using 6-Fr coronary guide catheters via femoral access. Catheters with such large internal diameters are necessary to deliver viscous contrast media and achieve sufficient red blood cell washout. Currently, undiluted iodinated contrast media (15 mL/injection) is used to clear the coronary arteries of red blood cells (RBCs). This leads to an increase in the total amount of contrast used and often the need for femoral artery access. Our objective is to assess the feasibility of performance of OCT using a 5-Fr guide catheter via radial access using diluted iodinated contrast ...
