    2. Optical Coherence Tomography and Glaucoma Progression: A Comparison of a Region of Interest Approach to Average Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness

      Optical Coherence Tomography and Glaucoma Progression: A Comparison of a Region of Interest Approach to Average Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness
      Purpose: To determine whether the change in the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in a region of interest (ROI) is a better measure of glaucoma progression than the change in average circumpapillary (cp) RNFL thickness. Methods: Disc cube scans were obtained with frequency domain optical coherence tomography from 60 eyes of 60 patients (age, 61.712.7 y) with early or suspected glaucoma and controlled intraocular pressure. The average ...

    7. Quantitative Fundus Autofluorescence and Optical Coherence Tomography in ABCA4 Carriers

      Quantitative Fundus Autofluorescence and Optical Coherence Tomography in ABCA4 Carriers
      Purpose : To assess whether carriers of ABCA4 mutations have increased RPE lipofuscin levels based on quantitative fundus autofluorescence (qAF) and whether spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) reveals structural abnormalities in this cohort. Methods : Seventy-five individuals who are heterozygous for ABCA4 mutations (mean age, 47.3 years; range, 982 years) were recruited as family members of affected patients from 46 unrelated families. For comparison, 57 affected family members with biallelic ABCA4 ...

    8. A Region-of-Interest Approach for Detecting Progression of Glaucomatous Damage With Optical Coherence Tomography

      A Region-of-Interest Approach for Detecting Progression of Glaucomatous Damage With Optical Coherence Tomography
      Objective To test the feasibility of using frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) and a region-of-interest (ROI) approach to measure progressive changes in glaucomatous damage. Design, Setting, and Participants Among a group of patients in an institutional glaucoma practice who were likely to show glaucoma progression, eyes with a history of an optic disc hemorrhage (DH) confirmed by stereophotography were followed up with FD-OCT cube scans of the optic disc. All ...

    9. Details of Glaucomatous Damage Are Better Seen on OCT En Face Images Than on OCT Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Maps

      Details of Glaucomatous Damage Are Better Seen on OCT En Face Images Than on OCT Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Maps
      Purpose : High-resolution images of glaucomatous damage to the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) were obtained with an adaptive optics-scanning light ophthalmoscope (AO-SLO) and used as a basis for comparisons between en face slab images and thickness maps derived from optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans. Methods : Wide-field (9 12 mm) cube scans were obtained with swept-source OCT (DRI-OCT) from six eyes of six patients. All eyes had a deep defect near ...

    10. Near-Infrared Autofluorescence: Its Relationship to Short-Wavelength Autofluorescence and Optical Coherence Tomography in Recessive Stargardt Disease

      Near-Infrared Autofluorescence: Its Relationship to Short-Wavelength Autofluorescence and Optical Coherence Tomography in Recessive Stargardt Disease
      Purpose. We compared hypoautofluorescent (hypoAF) areas detected with near-infrared (NIR-AF) and short-wavelength autofluorescence (SW-AF) in patients with recessive Stargardt disease (STGD1) to retinal structure using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods. The SD-OCT volume scans, and SW-AF and NIR-AF images were obtained from 15 eyes of 15 patients with STGD1 and registered to each other. Thickness maps of the total retina, receptor-plus layer (R+, from distal border of the ...

      Purpose: To improve our understanding of glaucomatous damage as seen on circumpapillary disc scans obtained with frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (fdOCT), fdOCT scans were compared to images of the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber (RNF) bundles obtained with an adaptive optics-scanning light ophthalmoscope (AO-SLO). Methods: The AO-SLO images and fdOCT scans were obtained on 6 eyes of 6 patients with deep arcuate defects (5 points 15 db) on 10-2 visual fields ...

      Evaluation of a Method for Estimating Retinal Ganglion Cell Counts Using Visual Fields and Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose : To evaluate the accuracy and generalizability of a published model that derives estimates of retinal ganglion cell (RGC) counts and relates structural and functional changes due to glaucoma. Methods : Both the Harwerth et al. nonlinear model (HNLM) and the Hood and Kardon linear model (HKLM) were applied to an independent dataset of frequencydomain optical coherence tomography and visual fields, consisting of 48 eyes of 48 healthy controls, 100 eyes ...

      Purpose To determine whether annual decline in visual field sensitivity is greater in the transition zone at the edge of the frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (fdOCT) inner segment ellipsoid zone (EZ) than at other locations in the visual field. Design Prospective, longitudinal, observational study. Participants Forty-four patients with X-linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP) resulting from a mutation in the RPGR gene.

    1. With the NSTIN plot, the temporal quadrant of the retinal nerve fiber layer is displayed in the center of the B-scan. This portion of the disc is crucial for everyday visual function, and identification of abnormal thinning in this region is essential for managing glaucoma.
