      Characteristic Findings of Optical Coherence Tomography in Retinal Angiomatous Proliferation

      Purpose To identify the unique pathologic findings of retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) in optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods Retrospectively, 29 eyes of 25 patients with age-related macular degeneration and complicated RAP were analyzed. All 29 eyes had choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in the area of pigment epithelial detachment (PED) or adjacent to it, which was visible with fluorescein angiography or indocyanine green angiography.

    5. Visualization of Peripheral Pulmonary Artery Red Thrombi Utilizing Optical Coherence Tomography

      Visualization of Peripheral Pulmonary Artery Red Thrombi Utilizing Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new imaging technique capable of obtaining high-resolution intravascular images and has been used in interventional cardiology. However, an application of OCT in pulmonary arteries had seldom been documented. In this case, OCT imaging is performed in peripheral pulmonary arteries and shows mural red thrombi. Subsequently, the red thrombi are aspirated and confirmed by a histological examination. These findings suggest that OCT may be a useful tool to depict peripheral pulmonary artery thrombi.

    7. Ocular Torsion Measured by Fundus Photographs and Optical Coherent Tomography in Normal Koreans

      Ocular Torsion Measured by Fundus Photographs and Optical Coherent Tomography in Normal Koreans

      Purpose To investigate the normal range of ocular torsion in Koreans with no ophthalmologic history using fundus photographs and optical coherence tomography and compare the results of the two methods. Methods Fundus photographs and optical coherence tomography were conducted in 400 eyes of 200 people with no ophthalmologic history. ImageJ® was used to measure the center of the optic nerve head to foveal angle with fundus photographs. For optical coherence tomography, the fovea-to-disc alignment function in the computer program was used to automatically calculate the angle. Then, the calculated angles measured by the two different methods were compared. Results In ...

    8. Stent Evaluation with Optical Coherence Tomography

      Stent Evaluation with Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been recently applied to investigate coronary artery disease in interventional cardiology. Compared to intravascular ultrasound, OCT is able to visualize various vascular structures more clearly with higher resolution. Several validation studies have shown that OCT is more accurate in evaluating neointimal tissue after coronary stent implantation than intravascular ultrasound. Novel findings on OCT evaluation include the detection of strut coverage and the characterization of neointimal tissue in an in-vivo setting. In a previous study, neointimal healing of stent strut was pathologically the most important factor associated with stent thrombosis, a fatal complication, in patients treated ...

      Utility of Optical Coherence Tomography to Assess a Hazy Intracoronary Image after Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

      Although its use in daily practice is not common, optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a powerful research tool in invasive cardiology. This report describes a hazy angiography image after percutaneous coronary intervention that has been assessed using OCT. Based on the results of the OCT, the patient underwent an elective coronary angioplasty with standard anticoagulation. After implantation of the stent, an intracoronary hazy image was seen on angiography. The use of OCT permitted a correct diagnosis and a successful treatment. This paper provides a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of OCT, and a comparison with intravascular ultrasound.

      The Effect of Axial Length on the Variability of Stratus Optical Coherence Tomography

      Purpose To evaluate the effect of axial length on the variability of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements using the Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) in normal and glaucomatous eyes. Methods We measured the RNFL thickness in 474 subjects using the Stratus OCT twice during the same day. Axial length was measured with the IOLMaster, and refractive error was the absolute value of the spherical equivalent measured with an auto ref-keratometer. Standard deviation in overall mean RNFL thickness was used as the dependent variable to identify significant correlations. Results Long axial length affected the variability in the RNFL thickness ...

      Purpose To study choroidal thickness and its topographic profile in normal eyes using 3D OCT-1000 spectral domain optical coherence tomography and the correlation with age and refractive error. Methods Fifty-seven eyes (45 individuals) with no visual complaints or ocular disease underwent horizontal and vertical line scanning using 3D OCT-1000. The definition of choroidal thickness was the vertical distance between the posterior edge of the hyper-reflective retinal pigment epithelium and the choroid/sclera junction. Choroidal thickness was measured in the subfoveal area at 500 µm intervals from the fovea to 2,500 µm in the nasal, temporal, superior, and inferior regions ...

      Specific Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomographic Findings of Oguchi Disease

      PurposeTo report specific spectral domain OCT findings of Oguchi disease diagnosed with fundoscopic examination and electrophysiological study. Case summaryA 14-year-old patient visited our clinic with a complaint of night blindness for ten years. Fundoscopic examination showed a golden-yellow fundus reflex. After three hours of dark adaptation, the fundus color returned to normal (Mizuo-Nakamura phenomenon). In full-field ERG, rod b-wave was not detectable. The a-wave amplitude in maximal combined response increased after three hours of dark adaptation, although the b-wave amplitude was similar to the amplitude before dark adaptation, demonstrating a negative waveform. In the spectral domain OCT images of the ...
