    1. Approaches to quantify optical coherence tomography angiography metrics

      Approaches to quantify optical coherence tomography angiography metrics

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has revolutionized the field of ophthalmology in the last three decades. As an OCT extension, OCT angiography (OCTA) utilizes a fast OCT system to detect motion contrast in ocular tissue and provides a three-dimensional representation of the ocular vasculature in a non-invasive, dye-free manner. The first OCT machine equipped with OCTA function was approved by U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2016 and now it is widely applied in clinics. To date, numerous methods have been developed to aid OCTA interpretation and quantification. In this review, we focused on the workflow of OCTA-based interpretation, beginning ...

    2. Optical coherence tomography angiography in glaucoma: analysis of the vessel density-visual field sensitivity relationship

      Optical coherence tomography angiography in glaucoma: analysis of the vessel density-visual field sensitivity relationship

      Glaucoma, a well-defined group of progressive optic neuropathies is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness worldwide. In order to stop or slow down the progression of glaucomatous vision deterioration, intraocular pressure reduction by medical, laser or surgical treatment is needed. To ensure that treatment is efficient and tailored to the actual needs both cross sectional evaluation of disease severity and measurement of rate of progression are essential. Currently staging and progression are investigated with visual field and retinal thickness measurements. Perimetry, however, is influenced by several biological factors which are not related to glaucoma, and the use of ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography angiography in glaucoma

      Optical coherence tomography angiography in glaucoma

      Assessment of the vasculature within the optic nerve, peripapillary superficial retina, macula, and peripapillary choroid can be determined in glaucoma using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Decreased perfusion within the pre-laminar layer of the optic nerve has been correlated with glaucoma severity. The peripapillary superficial retinal vessel density allows diagnosis and detection of glaucoma progression in a manner similar to the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness. Furthermore, decreased peripapillary vessel density of the intact hemiretina or unaffected eye of glaucomatous eyes suggests that vascular changes can occur prior to detectable visual field damage. The accuracy for glaucoma detection ...

    4. Association of ABO blood groups and non-culprit plaque characteristics in acute coronary syndrome: an optical coherence tomography study

      Association of ABO blood groups and non-culprit plaque characteristics in acute coronary syndrome: an optical coherence tomography study

      Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) poses a serious threat to human health. Research shows that ABO blood groups, especially non-O blood types, are closely related to the incidence of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). This study aimed to determine the associations of blood types with non-culprit coronary plaque characteristics using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods: A total of 257 acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients (average age, 59.39±10.08 years, 80% male) who underwent OCT of 3 vessels were identified. Subjects were divided into 2 groups: the O blood group (71 patients with 121 plaques) and the non-O group (186 patients with ...

    5. Comparison of a new anterior segment optical coherence tomography and Oculus Pentacam for measurement of anterior chamber depth and corneal thickness

      Comparison of a new anterior segment optical coherence tomography and Oculus Pentacam for measurement of anterior chamber depth and corneal thickness

      Background Accurate measurements of anterior chamber depth (ACD) and regional corneal thickness are especially important for the diagnosis and treatment of many ocular disease. This study aimed to evaluate the repeatability and reliability of a new swept source anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) and its agreement with Oculus Pentacam for measurements of ACD and corneal thickness (CT). Methods The central corneal thickness (CCT), superior corneal thickness (SCT), inferior corneal thickness (ICT), nasal corneal thickness (NCT), temporal corneal thickness (TCT) and ACD of the right eye from forty-nine adults aged 18 to 36 years (24.78±4.36 years old ...

    6. Optical coherence tomography-based deep learning algorithm for quantification of the location of the intraocular lens

      Optical coherence tomography-based deep learning algorithm for quantification of the location of the intraocular lens

      Background: Cataract surgery has been recently developed from sight rehabilitating surgery to accurate refractive surgery. The precise concentration of intraocular lens (IOL) is crucial for postoperative high visual quanlity. The three-dimentional (3D) images of ocular anterior segment captured by optial coherence tomography (OCT) make it possible to evaluate the IOL position in 3D space, which provide insights into factors relavant to the visual quanlity and better design of new functional IOL. The deep learning algorithm potentially quantify the IOL position in an objective and efficient way. Methods: The region-based fully convolutional network (R-FCN) was used to recogonize and delineate the ...

    7. Comparison of radius of anterior lens surface curvature measurements in vivo using the anterior segment optical coherence tomography and Scheimpflug imaging

      Comparison of radius of anterior lens surface curvature measurements in vivo using the anterior segment optical coherence tomography and Scheimpflug imaging

      Background: To assess the radius of anterior lens surface curvature (RAL) measurements with anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in comparison with Scheimpflug imaging. Methods: This prospective, cross-sectional study was carried out at Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Guangzhou, China. We enrolled 59 eyes, including 30 eyes from 30 cataractous volunteers (59 to 87 years) and 29 eyes from 29 young participants (19 to 49 years). After mydriasis, the RAL was measured automatically by the built-in software in the AS-OCT (CASIA 2). The Scheimpflug images were measured with the build-in caliper tool of the Scheimpflug camera (Pentacam), and RAL were further calculated ...
