    1. Evaluation of the effect of elevated intraocular pressure and reduced ocular perfusion pressure on retinal capillary bed filling and total retinal blood flow in rats by OMAG/OCT

      Evaluation of the effect of elevated intraocular pressure and reduced ocular perfusion pressure on retinal capillary bed filling and total retinal blood flow in rats by OMAG/OCT
      Purpose To determine if retinal capillary filling is preserved in the face of acutely elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) in anesthetized rats, despite a reduction in total retinal blood flow (RBF), using optical microangiography/optical coherence tomography (OMAG/OCT). Methods OMAG provided the capability of depth-resolved imaging of the retinal microvasculature down to the capillary level. Doppler OCT was applied to measure the total RBF using an enface integration approach. The ...

    2. Label-free optical imaging of lymphatic vessels within tissue beds in vivo

      Label-free optical imaging of lymphatic vessels within tissue beds in vivo
      Lymphatic vessels are a part of the circulatory system in vertebrates that maintain tissue fluid homeostasis and drain excess fluid and large cells that cannot easily find their way back into venous system. Due to the lack of noninvasive monitoring tools, lymphatic vessels are known as forgotten circulation. However, the lymphatic system plays an important role in diseases such as cancer and inflammatory conditions. In this paper, we start to ...

    4. Noninvasive Imaging of Retinal Morphology and Microvasculature in Obese Mice using Optical Coherence Tomography and Optical Microangiography

      Noninvasive Imaging of Retinal Morphology and Microvasculature in Obese Mice using Optical Coherence Tomography and Optical Microangiography
      Purpose:To evaluate early diabetes-induced changes in retinal thickness and microvasculature in a type II diabetic mouse model using OCT/OMAG. Methods:22 week old obese BTBR mice (OB, n=10) and wild type control mice (WT, n=10) were imaged. Three-dimensional data were captured with OCT using an ultrahigh sensitive OMAG scanning protocol for 3D angiography of the retina and dense A-scan protocol for measurement of the total retinal ...

    6. Label-free optical lymphangiography: development of an automatic segmentation method applied to optical coherence tomography to visualize lymphatic vessels using Hessian filters

      Label-free optical lymphangiography: development of an automatic segmentation method applied to optical coherence tomography to visualize lymphatic vessels using Hessian filters
      Lymphatic vessels are a part of the circulatory system that collect plasma and other substances that have leaked from the capillaries into interstitial fluid (lymph) and transport lymph back to the circulatory system. Since lymph is transparent, lymphatic vessels appear as dark hallow vessel-like regions in optical coherence tomography (OCT) cross sectional images. We propose an automatic method to segment lymphatic vessel lumen from OCT structural cross sections using eigenvalues ...

    7. Impact of intraocular pressure on changes of blood flow in the retina, choroid, and optic nerve head in rats investigated by optical microangiography

      Impact of intraocular pressure on changes of blood flow in the retina, choroid, and optic nerve head in rats investigated by optical microangiography
      In this paper, we demonstrate the use of optical coherence tomography/optical microangiography (OCT/OMAG) to image and measure the effects of acute intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation on retinal, choroidal and optic nerve head (ONH) perfusion in the rat eye. In the experiments, IOP was elevated from 10 to 100 mmHg in 10 mmHg increments. At each IOP level, three-dimensional data volumes were captured using an ultrahigh sensitive (UHS) OMAG ...

    8. Phase-sensitive optical coherence tomography characterization of pulse-induced trabecular meshwork displacement in ex vivo nonhuman primate eyes

      Phase-sensitive optical coherence tomography characterization of pulse-induced trabecular meshwork displacement in ex vivo nonhuman primate eyes
      Glaucoma is a blinding disease for which intraocular pressure (IOP) is the only treatable risk factor. The mean IOP is regulated through the aqueous outflow system, which contains the trabecular meshwork (TM). Considerable evidence indicates that trabecular tissue movement regulates the aqueous outflow and becomes abnormal during glaucoma; however, such motion has thus far escaped detection. The purpose of this study is to describe anovel use of a phase-sensitive optical ...

    9. Quantifying Optical Microangiography Images Obtained from a Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography System

      Quantifying Optical Microangiography Images Obtained from a Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography System
      The blood vessel morphology is known to correlate with several diseases, such as cancer, and is important for describing several tissue physiological processes, like angiogenesis. Therefore, a quantitative method for characterizing the angiography obtained from medical images would have several clinical applications. Optical microangiography (OMAG) is a method for obtaining three-dimensional images of blood vessels within a volume of tissue. In this study we propose to quantify OMAG images obtained ...
