    2. The Importance of Signal Strength Index in Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography: A Study of Eyes with Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome

      The Importance of Signal Strength Index in Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography: A Study of Eyes with Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome
      Purpose: To evaluate the effect of the signal strength index (SSI) on a comparison of the vascular and structural OCT measurements between eyes with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PXF) and healthy controls of Asian-Indian origin. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 33 eyes of 33 PXF patients and 40 healthy eyes of 40 controls underwent OCT and OCT angiography (OCTA). Eyes with intraocular pressure (IOP) 21mmHg, glaucomatous disc changes, or any other ocular ...

    3. Quantitative Analysis of the Choroidal Vascularity in Eyes with Uveitis Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Quantitative Analysis of the Choroidal Vascularity in Eyes with Uveitis Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Purpose: The purpose of this systematic review is to identify techniques used for quantification of choriocapillaris (CC) flow in eyes with uveitis using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), report reliability and level of correlation with techniques such as indocyanine green angiography (ICGA). Methods: A systematic search of several databases was done. The studies were analyzed for techniques of measurement, reliability, and correlation with other modalities. Risk of bias assessment was ...

    4. Imaging-based Assessment of Choriocapillaris: A Comprehensive Review

      Imaging-based Assessment of Choriocapillaris: A Comprehensive Review
      PURPOSE Over the past two decades, advancements in imaging modalities have significantly evolved the diagnosis and management of retinal diseases. Through these novel platforms, we have developed a deeper understanding of the anatomy of the choroidal vasculature and the choriocapillaris. The recently developed tools such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCTA) have helped elucidate the pathological mechanisms of several posterior segment diseases. In this review, we have ...

    5. Patient Preference for Optical Coherence Tomography versus Punch Biopsy as Diagnostic Strategy for Diagnosis of Basal Cell Carcinoma: A Labelled Discrete Choice Experiment

      Patient Preference for Optical Coherence Tomography versus Punch Biopsy as Diagnostic Strategy for Diagnosis of Basal Cell Carcinoma: A Labelled Discrete Choice Experiment
      Non-invasive technologies, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), are increasingly available for diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma (BCC), and might partly replace a punch biopsy, which is considered the current gold standard (1, 2). To examine patient preferences for OCT or punch biopsy as diagnostic strategy for BCC, a discrete choice experiment (DCE) was performed alongside a clinical trial (ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT03848078). The selection of attributes and associated levels ...

    6. The use of optical coherence tomography angiography in comparing choriocapillaris recovery between two treatment strategies for multifocal choroiditis: a pilot clinical trial

      The use of optical coherence tomography angiography in comparing choriocapillaris recovery between two treatment strategies for multifocal choroiditis: a pilot clinical trial
      Purpose: To compare differences in choriocapillaris flow deficit (CC FD) in multifocal choroiditis (MFC) between two treatment arms using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods: In this prospective randomized clinical trial, patients were randomized to either Group 1 which received standard tapering dose of oral corticosteroids, or Group 2 which received additional dexamethasone implant (or intravitreal methotrexate). The patients were followed-up until 12 weeks using OCTA and other imaging tools ...

    7. Optical Coherence Tomography Findings of Underlying Choroidal Neovascularization in Punctate Inner Choroidopathy

      Optical Coherence Tomography Findings of Underlying Choroidal Neovascularization in Punctate Inner Choroidopathy
      Purpose: To analyze findings on optical coherence tomography (OCT) suggestive of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in lesions of punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC). Methods: In this multi-center retrospective study, clinical data of patients with PIC were retrospectively analyzed. Quantitative data (height, width, and volume of PIC lesions), and qualitative data (disruption of ellipsoid zone (EZ)/Bruch's membrane (BM), outer retinal fuzziness, and choroidal back-shadowing) were compared between CNV+ and CNV- groups ...

    8. Optical microangiography and progressive ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer loss in primary open angle glaucoma

      Optical microangiography and progressive ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer loss in primary open angle glaucoma
      Purpose To evaluate the association between optical microangiography (OMAG) measurements and progressive ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) loss in primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). Design Prospective case-series Methods Sixty-three eyes of 38 POAG patients were studied for at least 2 years and with at least 3 optical coherence tomography (OCT) examinations. Only those hemifields with mild to moderate functional damage at baseline (106 hemifields) were included in the analysis. OMAG ...

    9. Circular functional analysis of OCT data for precise identification of structural phenotypes in the eye

      Circular functional analysis of OCT data for precise identification of structural phenotypes in the eye
      Progressive optic neuropathies such as glaucoma are major causes of blindness globally. Multiple sources of subjectivity and analytical challenges are often encountered by clinicians in the process of early diagnosis and clinical management of these diseases. In glaucoma, the structural damage is often characterized by neuroretinal rim (NRR) thinning of the optic nerve head, and other clinical parameters. Baseline structural heterogeneity in the eyes can play a key role in ...

    10. Progressive vessel density reduction on optical coherence tomography angiography in glaucoma eyes with disc hemorrhages

      Progressive vessel density reduction on optical coherence tomography angiography in glaucoma eyes with disc hemorrhages
      Purpose: To identify longitudinal changes in peripapillary and parafoveal vessel density (VD) measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) eyes with disc hemorrhages (DH). Design: Prospective, cohort study conducted from August 2016 to August 2020 PARTICIPANTS: 18 eyes of 18 Asian-Indian participants with POAG who presented to the clinic with a single DH in the peripapillary region were consecutively recruited. Methods: The study was conducted ...

    11. Optical microangiography and progressive retinal nerve fiber layer loss in primary open angle glaucoma

      Optical microangiography and progressive retinal nerve fiber layer loss in primary open angle glaucoma
      Purpose : To evaluate the association between optical microangiography (OMAG) measurements and progressive retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) loss in primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). Design : Prospective case series Methods : Sixty-four eyes of 40 POAG patients (108 quadrants) with mild to moderate functional damage were longitudinally studied for at least 2 years and with a minimum of 3 optical coherence tomography (OCT) examinations. OMAG imaging was performed at the baseline visit ...

    12. Retinal Microvascular Alterations in Patients with Quiescent Posterior and Panuveitis Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Retinal Microvascular Alterations in Patients with Quiescent Posterior and Panuveitis Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Purpose: To quantify retinochoroidal vascular parameters using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCTA) in quiescent posterior and panuveitis. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, subjects with quiescent posterior and panuveitis underwent fundus imaging using SS-OCTA (DRI Triton, Topcon, Japan). The metrics calculated were fractal dimension (FD), foveal avascular zone (FAZ) area, retinal vascularity index (capillary density index-CDI), and choroidal vascularity index (CVI). Results: We included 38 eyes of 20 patients, 9 males ...
