    3. Application of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography to Retinal Disease

      Application of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography to Retinal Disease
      A little over two years ago, a hot new topic in retinal imaging caught the attention of ophthalmologists around the world. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), an innovative, fast, noninvasive, non-dye-based angiographic technique, quickly became a topic of great interest in major conferences and ophthalmology journals. Inquisitive minds applied the OCTA prototypes to understanding diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. The technologys high resolution and ability to ...

We evaluated morphologic features of the retina and choroid on optical coherence tomography (OCT) to determine if they predict progression to advanced disease. Methods : Progressors transitioned from early or intermediate AMD to advanced disease ( n = 40 eyes), and were matched on baseline AMD grade ...

    8. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Chorioretinal Diseases

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Chorioretinal Diseases
      Fluorescein angiography (FA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) have been the gold standard for the evaluation of retinal and choroidal vasculature in the last three decades and have revolutionized the diagnosis of retinal and choroidal vascular diseases. The advantage of these imaging modalities lies in their ability to document retinal and choroidal vasculature through the dynamic assessment of contrast transit over time in the intravascular and extravascular spaces. However, disadvantages ...

    9. Diagnosis and Follow-Up of Nonexudative Choroidal Neovascularization With Multiple Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Devices: A Case Report

      Diagnosis and Follow-Up of Nonexudative Choroidal Neovascularization With Multiple Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Devices: A Case Report
      Nonexudative choroidal neovascularization (CNV) is a new phenomenon that has only recently been described in the literature with the advent of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) imaging. The authors present a 1-year longitudinal follow-up of a nonexudative CNV lesion secondary to age-related macular degeneration. This report describes the appearance of the lesion on two commercially available spectral-domain OCTA devices and one prototype swept-source OCTA device. Management of these cases is ...

    10. Investigating the Choriocapillaris and Choroidal Vasculature with New Optical Coherence Tomography Technologies

      Investigating the Choriocapillaris and Choroidal Vasculature with New Optical Coherence Tomography Technologies
      The body of knowledge of in vivo investigation of the choroid has been markedly enhanced by recent technological advances in optical coherence tomography (OCT). New insights elucidating the morphological features of the choriocapillaris and choroidal vasculature, in both physiological and pathological conditions, indicate that the choroid plays a pivotal role in many posterior segment diseases. In this article, a review of the histological characteristics of the choroid, which must be ...

Dr. Ferrara moved to the United States in 2006 to complete a research fellowship in Medical Retina at the Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital affiliated to New York University, and since then she has been working on multimodal imaging analysis for clinical trials on retinal diseases. Dr. Ferrara’s training and career are shaped to bring together basic research and clinical challenges. Dr. Ferrara’s major research interests include imaging of the posterior segment of the eye, and multimodal imaging analysis on pathological conditions of the vitreous, retina and choroid. She is focused on dystrophic and degenerative diseases of the retina, and retinal vascular diseases. She is currently involved with the Optical Coherence Tomography Team at the New England Eye Center, a multidisciplinary group that promotes the scientific contribution on a clinical setting between retina specialists and the Research Laboratory of Electronics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
