    1. Photoreceptor disc shedding in the living human eye

      Photoreceptor disc shedding in the living human eye
      Cone photoreceptors undergo a daily cycle of renewal and shedding of membranous discs in their outer segments (OS), the portion responsible for light capture. These physiological processes are fundamental to maintaining photoreceptor health, and their dysfunction is associated with numerous retinal diseases. While both processes have been extensively studied in animal models and postmortem eyes, little is known about them in the living eye, in particular human. In this study ...

    2. A Review of Adaptive Optics Optical Coherence Tomography: Technical Advances, Scientific Applications, and the Future

      A Review of Adaptive Optics Optical Coherence Tomography: Technical Advances, Scientific Applications, and the Future
      Purpose : Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has enabled virtual biopsy of the living human retina, revolutionizing both basic retina research and clinical practice over the past 25 years. For most of those years, in parallel, adaptive optics (AO) has been used to improve the transverse resolution of ophthalmoscopes to foster in vivo study of the retina at the microscopic level. Here, we review work done over the last 15 years to ...

    3. Imaging human retinal pigment epithelium cells using adaptive optics optical coherence tomography

      Imaging human retinal pigment epithelium cells using adaptive optics optical coherence tomography
      Retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells are vital to health of the outer retina, but are often compromised in ageing and major ocular diseases that lead to blindness. Early manifestation of RPE disruption occurs at the cellular level, and while biomarkers at this scale hold considerable promise, RPE cells have proven extremely challenging to image in the living human eye. We present a novel method based on optical coherence tomography (OCT ...

    5. Adaptive-optics optical coherence tomography processing using a graphics processing unit

      Adaptive-optics optical coherence tomography processing using a graphics processing unit
      Graphics processing units are increasingly being used for scientific computing for their powerful parallel processing abilities, and moderate price compared to super computers and computing grids. In this paper we have used a general purpose graphics processing unit to process adaptive-optics optical coherence tomography (AOOCT) images in real time. Increasing the processing speed of AOOCT is an essential step in moving the super high resolution technology closer to clinical viability.

    6. Adaptive optics optical coherence tomography for measuring phase and reflectance dynamics of photoreceptors

      Adaptive optics optical coherence tomography for measuring phase and reflectance dynamics of photoreceptors
      Optical coherence tomography with adaptive optics (AO-OCT) is a noninvasive method for imaging the living retina at the microscopic level. We used AO-OCT technology to follow changes in cone photoreceptor outer segment (OS) length and reflectance. To substantially increase sensitivity of the length measurements, a novel phase retrieval technique was demonstrated, capable of detecting changes on a nanometer scale. We acquired volume videos of 0.65°x0.65° retinal patches ...

    7. Adaptive optics and the eye (super resolution OCT)

      Adaptive optics and the eye (super resolution OCT)
      The combination of adaptive optics (AO) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) was first reported 8 years ago and has undergone tremendous technological advances since then. The technical benefits of adding AO to OCT (increased lateral resolution, smaller speckle, and enhanced sensitivity) increase the imaging capability of OCT in ways that make it well suited for three-dimensional (3D) cellular imaging in the retina. Today, AO–OCT systems provide ultrahigh 3D resolution ...

    8. Imaging retinal nerve fiber bundles at ultrahigh-speed and ultrahigh-resolution using OCT with adaptive optics

      Imaging retinal nerve fiber bundles at ultrahigh-speed and ultrahigh-resolution using OCT with adaptive optics
      Ultrahigh speed line scan detectors based on CMOS technology have been recently demonstrated in ultrahigh resolution spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (UHR-SD-OCT) for retinal imaging. While successful, fundamental tradeoffs exist been image acquisition time, image sampling density, and sensitivity, all of which impact the extent of motion artifacts, visualization of fine spatial detail, and detection of faint reflections. Here we investigate these tradeoffs for imaging retinal nerve fiber bundles (RNFBs) using ...
