    2. Optical coherence tomography of spontaneous basilar artery dissection in a patient with acute ischemic stroke

      Optical coherence tomography of spontaneous basilar artery dissection in a patient with acute ischemic stroke
      The diagnosis of intracranial arterial dissection (IAD) may be challenging and multimodal imaging techniques are often needed to confirm the diagnosis. Previous studies have based their criteria for diagnosis of IAD on conventional angiography, computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. We report a case with acute ischemic stroke due to spontaneous basilar artery dissection in which intravascular optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used to show features of IAD. A 59-year-old ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Vessel Density Changes after Acute Intraocular Pressure Elevation
      To investigate changes in retinal vessel density in optic nerve head (ONH) and macula after acute intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation, we conducted a prospective observational study. Eyes with IOP rise 5mmHg after 2-hour dark room prone provocative test (DRPPT) were included. Vasculature of ONH and macula was examined by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) at baseline and after DRPPT. Among the 65 eyes of 42 individuals, 40 eyes with qualified ...

    14. Measurement of the absolute velocity of blood flow in early-stage chick embryos using spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Measurement of the absolute velocity of blood flow in early-stage chick embryos using spectral domain optical coherence tomography
      Doppler optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging modality that provides quantitative flow information with high spatial and temporal resolution. However, it is only sensitive to the flow velocity vector parallel to the incident beam. To calculate the absolute velocity, it is necessary to obtain the angle between the incident beam and flow field. In this paper, we describe a practical method to measure the Doppler angle based on ...
