    5. Quantification of local circulation with OCT angiography

      Quantification of local circulation with OCT angiography
      Impaired intraocular blood flow within vascular beds in the human eye is associated with certain ocular diseases including, for example, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. A reliable method to quantify blood flow in the various intraocular vascular beds could provide insight into the vascular component of ocular disease pathophysiology. Using ultrahigh-speed optical coherence tomography (OCT), a new 3D angiography algorithm called split-spectrum amplitude-decorrelation angiography (SSADA) was developed for ...

    10. Detecting and measuring areas of choriocapillaris low perfusion in intermediate, non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration

      Detecting and measuring areas of choriocapillaris low perfusion in intermediate, non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration
      Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a vision-threatening disease that affects the outer retina and choroid of elderly adults. Because photoreceptors are found in the outer retina and rely primarily on the trophic support of the underlying choriocapillaris, imaging of flow or lack thereof in choriocapillaris by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has great clinical potential in AMD assessment. We introduce a metric using OCTA, named focal perfusion loss (FPL) to ...

    12. Monitoring retinal responses to acute intraocular pressure elevation in rats with visible light optical coherence tomography

      Monitoring retinal responses to acute intraocular pressure elevation in rats with visible light optical coherence tomography
      Elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) is an important risk factor for glaucoma. However, the role of IOP in glaucoma progression, as well as retinal physiology in general, remains incompletely understood. We demonstrate the use of visible light optical coherence tomography to measure retinal responses to acute IOP elevation in Brown Norway rats. We monitored retinal responses in reflectivity, angiography, blood flow, oxygen saturation (sO2 ), and oxygen metabolism over a range of ...
