    2. Characteristics of Earlier Versus Delayed Presentation of Very Late Drug‐Eluting Stent Thrombosis: An Optical Coherence Tomographic Study

      Characteristics of Earlier Versus Delayed Presentation of Very Late Drug‐Eluting Stent Thrombosis: An Optical Coherence Tomographic Study
      Background The pathophysiology underlying very late drug‐eluting stent ( DES ) thrombosis is not sufficiently understood. Using optical coherence tomography, we investigated characteristics of very late stent thrombosis ( VLST ) according to different onset times. Methods and Results A total of 98 patients from 10 South Korean hospitals who underwent optical coherence tomography for evaluation of very late DES thrombosis were retrospectively included in analyses. VLST occurred at a median of 55 ...

    3. In vivo 3D imaging of the human tympanic membrane using a wide-field diagonal-scanning optical coherence tomography probe

      In vivo 3D imaging of the human tympanic membrane using a wide-field diagonal-scanning optical coherence tomography probe
      A wide-field optical coherence tomography (OCT) probe was developed that adapts a diagonal-scanning scheme for three-dimensional (3D) in vivo imaging of the human tympanic membrane. The probe consists of a relay lens to enhance the lateral scanning range up to 7 mm. Motion artifacts that occur with the use of handheld probes were found to be decreased owing to the diagonal-scanning pattern, which crosses the center of the sample to ...

    4. Decalcification using ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid for clear microstructure imaging of cochlea through optical coherence tomography

      Decalcification using ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid for clear microstructure imaging of cochlea through optical coherence tomography
      The aim of this study was to analyze the effectiveness of decalcification using ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) as an optical clearing method to enhance the depth visibility of internal soft tissues of cochlea. Ex vivo mouse and guinea pig cochlea samples were soaked in EDTA solutions for decalcification, and swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used as imaging modality to monitor the decalcified samples consecutively. The monitored noninvasive cross-sectional images ...

    5. Feature Of The Week 8/4/13: MGH OCT Registry Reports on In Vivo OCT Studies of Plaque Erosion and Calcified Nodule In Acute Coronary Syndrome

      Feature Of The Week 8/4/13: MGH OCT Registry Reports on In Vivo OCT Studies of Plaque Erosion and Calcified Nodule In Acute Coronary Syndrome
      Pathology studies reported that three most common causes of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or sudden cardiac death are plaque rupture, plaque erosion and calcified nodules. The morphological and clinical characteristics of the underlying pathology of ACS, especially plaque erosion and calcified nodule, have never been well studied in vivo. Using optical coherence tomography, we found that plaque erosions are the substrate for ACS in 31% of patients and calcified nodules ...

    6. In Vivo Diagnosis of Plaque Erosion and Calcified Nodule in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome by Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography

      In Vivo Diagnosis of Plaque Erosion and Calcified Nodule in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome by Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography
      Objectives To characterize the morphological features of plaque erosion and calcified nodule in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) by optical coherence tomography (OCT). Background Plaque erosion and calcified nodule have not been systematically investigated in vivo . Methods One hundred and twenty-six patients with ACS who had undergone pre-intervention OCT imaging were included. The culprit lesions were classified as plaque rupture (PR), erosion (OCT-erosion), calcified nodule (OCT-CN), or others using ...

    7. Comparison of Disc Analysis Algorithms Provided by Cirrus OCT and Stereo Optic-disc Photography in Normal and Open Angle Glaucoma Patients

      Comparison of Disc Analysis Algorithms Provided by Cirrus OCT and Stereo Optic-disc Photography in Normal and Open Angle Glaucoma Patients
      Purpose: To compare optic nerve head (ONH) parameters obtained by semi-automated disc analysis of stereo optic-disc photography (ODP) with those by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) regarding their reproducibility, agreement and relationship with the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness. Patients and methods: In this cross-sectional retrospective study, 91 eyes (50 normal and 41 with open angle glaucoma) from 47 patients were examined. ONH parameters were obtained by ODP ...

    8. Comparison of Event-Based Methods Using Optical Coherence Tomography and Automated Perimetry to Detect the Progression of Glaucoma in Patients with Open-Angle Glaucoma

      Comparison of Event-Based Methods Using Optical Coherence Tomography and Automated Perimetry to Detect the Progression of Glaucoma in Patients with Open-Angle Glaucoma
      Background/Aims: To compare event-based methods for estimating the incidence of glaucoma progression using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and automated perimetry and to assess agreement between structural and functional tests for detecting glaucoma progression. Methods: Functional progression of glaucoma was estimated by guided progression analysis (GPA) using a Humphrey field analyzer (HFA), and structural progression was assessed by OCT and defined as the decrease in retinal nerve fiber layer thickness ...
