    1. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of the Eye (Textbook)

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of the Eye (Textbook)
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography is an important new imaging modality that is already being used by ophthalmologists in retina centers worldwide. It uses motion as intrinsic contrast, thus obviating the need to inject any intravenous dye. It uses infrared light that is invisible to the patient, and only requires few seconds per scan. This makes it both easier to use and much better tolerated by patients than traditional dye-based ...

    2. OCT - catching macular degeneration before vision loss

      OCT - catching macular degeneration before vision loss
      Growing old leads to a growing number of health problems, including those that challenge our ability to see. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that -- until recently -- robbed the elderly of the ability to read, drive and see the faces of their loved ones. Thanks to the invention of OCT, doctors can catch the disease before vision is lost. And with the aid of new drugs, AMD can be ...

    6. Swept source / Fourier domain polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography with a passive polarization delay unit

      Swept source / Fourier domain polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography with a passive polarization delay unit
      Polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) is a functional imaging method that provides additional contrast using the light polarizing properties of a sample. This manuscript describes PS-OCT based on ultrahigh speed swept source / Fourier domain OCT operating at 1050nm at 100kHz axial scan rates using single mode fiber optics and a multiplexing approach. Unlike previously reported PS-OCT multiplexing schemes, the method uses a passive polarization delay unit and does not ...

    7. Speckle reduction in swept source optical coherence tomography images with slow-axis averaging

      Speckle reduction in swept source optical coherence tomography images with slow-axis averaging
      The effectiveness of speckle reduction using traditional frame averaging technique was limited in ultrahigh speed optical coherence tomography (OCT). As the motion between repeated frames was very small, the speckle pattern of the frames might be identical. This problem could be solved by averaging frames acquired at slightly different locations. The optimized scan range depended on the spot size of the laser beam, the smoothness of the boundary, and the ...

      Ophthalmic OCT Reaches $1 Billion Per Year: But reimbursement clampdown clouds future innovation.
      Long gone are the days when a new medical product could be easily introduced based solely on improved patient outcomes. To optimize the probability of success, a new product now needs to demonstrate that it can both improve patient outcomes and reduce costs. To the clinical practice manager, an attractive product will need to recoup its cost in the near term and generate revenues in a predictable and easily quantifiable ...

    10. Total retinal blood flow measurement with ultrahigh speed swept source/Fourier domain OCT

      Total retinal blood flow measurement with ultrahigh speed swept source/Fourier domain OCT
      Doppler OCT provides depth-resolved information on flow in biological tissues. In this article, we demonstrate ultrahigh speed swept source/Fourier domain OCT for visualization and quantitative assessment of retinal blood flow. Using swept laser technology, the system operated in the 1050-nm wavelength range at a high axial scan rate of 200 kHz. The rapid imaging speed not only enables volumetric imaging with high axial scan densities, but also enables measurement ...

    11. Retinal blood flow measurement with ultrahigh-speed swept-source / Fourier domain optical coherence tomography

      Retinal blood flow measurement with ultrahigh-speed swept-source / Fourier domain optical coherence tomography
      Doppler OCT is a functional extension of OCT that provides information on flow in biological tissues. We present a novel approach for total retinal blood flow assessment using ultrahigh speed Doppler OCT. A swept source / Fourier domain OCT system at 1050 nm was used for 3D imaging of the human retina. The high axial scan rate of 200 kHz allowed measuring the high flow velocities in the central retinal vessels ...

    12. Ultrahigh speed 1050nm swept source / Fourier domain OCT retinal and anterior segment imaging at 100,000 to 400,000 axial scans per second

      Ultrahigh speed 1050nm swept source / Fourier domain OCT retinal and anterior segment imaging at 100,000 to 400,000 axial scans per second
      We demonstrate ultrahigh speed swept source/Fourier domain ophthalmic OCT imaging using a short cavity swept laser at 100,000 - 400,000 axial scan rates. Several design configurations illustrate tradeoffs in imaging speed, sensitivity, axial resolution, and imaging depth. Variable rate A/D optical clocking is used to acquire linear-in-k OCT fringe data at 100kHz axial scan rate with 5.3um axial resolution in tissue. Fixed rate sampling at 1 ...
