    2. Characterization of macular thickness changes in Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy by optical coherence tomography

      Characterization of macular thickness changes in Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy by optical coherence tomography

      Background To characterize macular thickness (MT) changes in Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) patients by cirrus HD-optical coherence tomography (OCT), and to study the correlation between MT and best corrected visual acuity (BCVA). Methods Fifty-two eyes from 52 consecutive LHON patients and 14 eyes from 14 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were scanned by OCT. Affected eyes were classified into five groups according to disease duration (1st group: <=3 months; 2nd group: 3-6 months; 3rd group: 6-9 months; 4th group: 9-12 months; and 5th group: >12 months). MT was compared and analyzed. The correlation between BCVA and MT was ...

    6. Method Of Motion Correction In Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging

      Method Of Motion Correction In Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging

      An image data set acquired by an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system is corrected for effects due to motion of the sample. A first set of A-scans is acquired within a time short enough to avoid any significant motion of the sample. A second more extensive set of A-scans is acquired over an overlapping region on the sample. Significant sample motion may occur during acquisition of the second set. A-scans from the first set are matched with A-scans from the second set, based on similarity between the longitudinal optical scattering profiles they contain. Such matched pairs of A-scans are likely ...

    7. Measurement of retinal nerve fiber layer and macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in patients with optic nerve head drusen

      Measurement of retinal nerve fiber layer and macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in patients with optic nerve head drusen

      Purpose To evaluate the effect of optic nerve head drusen (ONHD) on the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular ganglion cell–inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) using Cirrus optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods Fifty-seven eyes of thirty patients with ONHD and thirty-eight eyes of twenty age-matched and sex-matched control subjects underwent circumpapillary and macular scanning using Cirrus OCT. The percentages of eyes with abnormal GCIPL and RNFL values according to the Cirrus normative data were analysed and compared. Results Overall, eyes with ONHD showed abnormally reduced values for average and minimum GCIPL thicknesses in 35 % and 45 % of cases compared ...

      Device and method for measuring an optical break-through in a tissue

      ] The invention relates to a device for measuring an optical penetration that is triggered in a tissue underneath the tissue surface by means of therapeutic laser radiation which a laser-surgical device concentrates in a treatment focus located in said tissue. The inventive device is provided with a detection beam path comprising a lens system which couples radiation emanating from the tissue underneath the tissue surface into the detection beam path. A detector device generating a detection signal which indicates the spatial dimension and/or position of the optical penetration in the issue is arranged downstream of the detection beam path.

      Surgical microscope system and method

      A microscopy system and method allow observing a fluorescent substance accumulated in a tissue. The tissue can be observed at a same time both with visible light and with fluorescent light. It is possible to observe a series of previously recorded fluorescent light images in superposition with the visible light images. An end of the series of images may be automatically determined. A thermal protective filter may be inserted into a beam path of an illuminating system at such automatically determined end of the series. Further, the fluorescent light image may be analyzed for identifying a coherent fluorescent portion thereof ...

      Methods to reduce variance in OCT analysis of the macula

      Methods for analyzing optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of the macula to reduce variance and improve disease diagnosis are presented. One embodiment of the invention is directed towards selecting analysis locations and data segmentation techniques to take advantage of structural homogeneities. Another embodiment is directed towards reducing the variance in a collection of normative data by transforming the individual members of the database to correspond to a Standard Macula. Variations in foveal size are corrected by radial transformation. Variations in layer thickness are corrected by axial shifting. Diagnosis is performed by comparing OCT images from a patient to the improved ...

      Purpose: To evaluate the surgical outcome of dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) by measuring the tear meniscus, using optical coherence tomography and rebamipide ophthalmic suspension. Methods: Patients with nasolacrimal obstruction and chronic dacryocystitis who were scheduled for an endonasal DCR underwent tear meniscus examinations before and 2 months after surgery. Vertical scans of the inferior menisci were performed before and at 1, 3, 5, 7, and 10 minutes after the instillation of rebamipide ophthalmic suspension.
