    2. (Cost)-Effectiveness of OCT in BCC (ROCTI)

      (Cost)-Effectiveness of OCT in BCC (ROCTI)
      Skin cancer incidence rises worldwide due to high sun exposure and ageing. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most prevalent form, with a lifetime risk of 16-20% in the Netherlands. Currently, the gold standard for diagnosing and subtyping basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a punch biopsy. Since this technique is invasive, new non-invasive diagnostic methods have been developed, including optical coherence tomography (OCT). In patients with clinical and dermoscopic suspicion ...

      Repeatability and comparability of peripapillary vessel density measurements of high-density and non-high-density optical coherence tomography angiography scans in normal and glaucoma eyes
      Aims To compare the peripapillary vessel density (VD) measurements of high-density (HD) and non-HD optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) scans in normal and glaucoma eyes, and to evaluate the intrasession repeatability of VD measurements of HD scans.

      Prevalence of optical coherence tomography detected vitreomacular interface disorders: The Maastricht Study
      Purpose To calculate the prevalence of all vitreomacular interface (VMI) disorders and stratify according to age, sex and (pre)diabetes status. Methods The presence of VMI disorders was assessed in 2660 participants aged between 40 and 75 years from The Maastricht Study who had a gradable macular spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) volume scan in at least one eye [mean 59.7 8.2 years, 50.2% men, 1531 normal ...

    5. REVISITING THE VASCULAR THEORY OF GLAUCOMA USING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY (Thesis)

      REVISITING THE VASCULAR THEORY OF GLAUCOMA USING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY (Thesis)
      Glaucoma is a chronic progressive opƟ c neuropathy resulƟ ng from the apoptosis of reƟ nal ganglion cells (RGC).1 It is characterized by typical opƟ c disc and reƟ nal nerve fi ber layer (RNFL) changes with or without visual fi eld (VF) changes. The standard tests used to assess the amount of structural (opƟ c disc and RNFL) changes in current day clinical pracƟ ce are opƟ c ...

    6. Determinants of Peripapillary and Macular Vessel Densities Measured by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Normal Eyes

      Determinants of Peripapillary and Macular Vessel Densities Measured by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Normal Eyes
      PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of subject-related (age, sex, and systemic hypertension and diabetes), eye-related (refractive error, optic disc size), and technology-related (signal strength index, SSI of the scans) determinants on the peripapillary and macular vessel densities measured with optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in normal eyes. METHODS In a cross-sectional study, 181 normal eyes of 107 subjects (45 men, 62 women, median age ...

    7. Relationship of Optic Nerve Structure and Function to Peripapillary Vessel Density Measurements of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Glaucoma

      Relationship of Optic Nerve Structure and Function to Peripapillary Vessel Density Measurements of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Glaucoma
      Purpose: To evaluate the sectoral and global structure-structure (vessel density-retinal nerve fiber layer thickness) and structure-function (vessel density-visual sensitivity loss) relationships of peripapillary vessel density measurements on optical coherence tomography angiography in primary open-angle glaucoma and to determine if fractional polynomial (FP) models characterize the relationships better than linear models. Materials and Methods: In a cross-sectional study, structure-structure and structure-function relationships of peripapillary vessel densities were determined in 227 eyes ...

    9. Diagnostic ability of peripapillary vessel density measurements of optical coherence tomography angiography in primary open-angle and angle-closure glaucoma

      Diagnostic ability of peripapillary vessel density measurements of optical coherence tomography angiography in primary open-angle and angle-closure glaucoma
      Aims To evaluate the diagnostic ability of peripapillary vessel density measurements on optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG), and to compare these with peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness measurements. Methods In a cross-sectional study, 48 eyes of 33 healthy control subjects, 63 eyes of 39 patients with POAG and 49 eyes of 32 patients with PACG underwent OCTA (RTVue-XR ...

    10. New ophthalmologic imaging techniques for detection and monitoring of neurodegenerative changes in diabetes: a systematic review

      New ophthalmologic imaging techniques for detection and monitoring of neurodegenerative changes in diabetes: a systematic review
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the retina and around the optic nerve head and corneal confocal microscopy (CCM) are non-invasive and repeatable techniques that can quantify ocular neurodegenerative changes in individuals with diabetes. We systematically reviewed studies of ocular neurodegenerative changes in adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and noted changes in the retina, the optic nerve head, and the cornea. Of the 30 studies that met our ...

    11. Retinal Imaging of Infants on Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Retinal Imaging of Infants on Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Spectral domain coherence tomography (SD OCT) has become an important tool in the management of pediatric retinal diseases. It is a noncontact imaging device that provides detailed assessment of the microanatomy and pathology of the infant retina with a short acquisition time allowing office examination without the requirement of anesthesia. Our understanding of the development and maturation of the infant fovea has been enhanced by SD OCT allowing an in ...

      Purpose: To assess the reproducibility of iridocorneal angle (ICA) analysis in young, healthy Caucasian subjects using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) by determining variability and inter-observer agreement between expert and non-expert observers. Methods: Thirty-one healthy volunteers (non-experts) acquired 3 consecutive SS-OCT images of the right eyes of their peer non-experts. Images were analyzed by 31 non-experts and additionally by 3 experts, whereby the angle opening distance (AOD) and the trabecular ...
