    2. Best Clinical Practice for Age-Related Macular Degeneration Imaging

      Best Clinical Practice for Age-Related Macular Degeneration Imaging
      Purpose: To identify best clinical practices for macular degeneration imaging. Methods: We reviewed best clinical practices for imaging patients with age-related macular degeneration. These recommendations are based on different levels of evidence (I-III). Results: The type of imaging needed depends to some degree on the clinical scenario: first visit vs follow-up visit vs poorly responsive patient. Conclusions: Imaging technologies that may be useful include optical coherence tomography, fundus photography, fundus ...

    3. Advances in Whole-Eye Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging

      Advances in Whole-Eye Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging
      Contemporary anterior segment and retinal optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems only image their particular designated region of the eye and cannot image both areas of the eye at once. This separation is due to the differences in optical system design needed to properly image the front or back of the eye and also due to limitations in the imaging depth of current commercial OCT systems. More recently, research and commercial ...

    6. Could An Eye Doctor Diagnose Alzheimer’s Before You Have Symptoms?

      Could An Eye Doctor Diagnose Alzheimer’s Before You Have Symptoms?
      A quick eye exam might one day allow eye doctors to check up on both your eyeglasses prescription and your brain health. A study of more than 200 people at the Duke Eye Center published March 11 in the journal Ophthalmology Retina suggests the loss of blood vessels in the retina could signal Alzheimers disease. In people with healthy brains, microscopic blood vessels form a dense web at the back ...

    7. Retinal Microvascular and Neurodegenerative Changes in Alzheimer’s Disease and Mild Cognitive Impairment Compared with Control Participants

      Retinal Microvascular and Neurodegenerative Changes in Alzheimer’s Disease and Mild Cognitive Impairment Compared with Control Participants
      Purpose Evaluate and compare the retinal microvasculature in the superficial capillary plexus (SCP) in Alzheimers disease (AD), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and cognitively intact controls using OCT angiography. OCT parameters were also compared. Design Cross-sectional study. Participants Seventy eyes from 39 AD participants, 72 eyes from 37 MCI participants, and 254 eyes from 133 control participants were enrolled. Methods Participants were imaged using Zeiss Cirrus HD-5000 with AngioPlex (Carl Zeiss ...

      New Research Says Your Eyes Can Reveal A Lot About Your Brain Health
      It's no secret that the body acts as one big interconnected unit. It explains why certain injuries and physical distress can manifest themselves in entirely different parts of the body. Nausea and insomnia? Anxiety might be wreaking havoc on your system. Cystic acne? Unbalanced hormones could be at the root of the problem. Sluggishness and bloating? That could mean poor digestion (that's when probiotics come to the rescue ...

    10. Development of Multimodal Optical System Guided by Optical Coherence Tomography (Thesis)

      Development of Multimodal Optical System Guided by Optical Coherence Tomography (Thesis)
      The goal of this dissertation is to develop multimodal light scattering techniques using optical coherence tomography (OCT) to improve clinical diagnosis. OCT is a noninvasive optical imaging technique that utilizes low coherence interferometry to detect reflected and scattered light from a sample to produce depth resolved images. OCT is an emerging technology for a wide range of biomedical applications, with its largest impact in the field of ophthalmology to assess ...

    11. Hyperreflective Vitreous Opacities on Optical Coherence Tomography in a Patient With Bilateral Retinoblastoma

      Hyperreflective Vitreous Opacities on Optical Coherence Tomography in a Patient With Bilateral Retinoblastoma
      An investigational, portable spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) unit revealed small hyperreflective opacities in both eyes of a patient with bilateral retinoblastoma. There was no evidence of vitreous seeding on ophthalmoscopy of either eye. Although the opacities may initially raise concern for potential vitreous seeding, this report suggests alternate potential etiologies for such opacities, which were also seen on imaging of a cohort of normal eyes in pediatric patients.
