    3. Efficient and high accuracy 3-D OCT angiography motion correction in pathology

      Efficient and high accuracy 3-D OCT angiography motion correction in pathology
      We describe a novel method for non-rigid 3-D motion correction of orthogonally raster-scanned optical coherence tomography angiography volumes. This is the first approach that aligns predominantly axial structural features such as retinal layers as well as transverse angiographic vascular features in a joint optimization. Combined with orthogonal scanning and favorization of kinematically more plausible displacements, subpixel alignment and micrometer-scale distortion correction is achieved in all 3 dimensions. As no specific ...

    5. Maximum A Posteriori Signal Recovery for Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Image Generation and Denoising

      Maximum A Posteriori Signal Recovery for Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Image Generation and Denoising
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a novel and clinically promising imaging modality to image retinal and sub-retinal vasculature. Based on repeated optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans, intensity changes are observed over time and used to compute OCTA image data. OCTA data are prone to noise and artifacts caused by variations in flow speed and patientmovement. We propose a novel iterativemaximuma posteriori signal recovery algorithm in order to generate OCTA ...

    9. Using the Pathophysiology of Dry AMD to Guide Binarization of the Choriocapillaris on OCTA: A Model

      Using the Pathophysiology of Dry AMD to Guide Binarization of the Choriocapillaris on OCTA: A Model
      Especially since the incorporation of swept laser sources, optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has enabled quantification of choriocapillaris perfusion. A critical step in this process is binarization, which makes angiographic images quantifiable in terms of perfusion metrics. It remains challenging to have confidence that choriocapillaris perfusion metrics reflect the reality of pathophysiologic flow, largely because choice of binarization method can result in significantly different perfusion metric outcomes. This commentary discusses ...

      Correction propagation for user-assisted optical coherence tomography segmentation: general framework and application to Bruch’s membrane segmentation
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a commonly used ophthalmic imaging modality. While OCT has traditionally been viewed cross-sectionally (i.e., as a sequence of B-scans), higher A-scan rates have increased interest in en face OCT visualization and analysis. The recent clinical introduction of OCT angiography (OCTA) has further spurred this interest, with chorioretinal OCTA being predominantly displayed via en face projections. Although en face visualization and quantitation are natural for ...

    23. Diversity in optical coherence tomography normative databases: moving beyond race

      Diversity in optical coherence tomography normative databases: moving beyond race
      Normative databases of optical coherence tomography (OCT) metrics, such as retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular thickness, are critical to clinical use of OCT imaging. In order to accurately represent the range of normal variation in patient populations, these normative databases must themselves be adequately diverse. Thus far, diversity in OCT normative databases has largely been defined as racial diversity. However, this has largely been based on self-reported race ...
