    2. Complete 360° circumferential SSOCT gonioscopy of the iridocorneal angle

      Complete 360° circumferential SSOCT gonioscopy of the iridocorneal angle

      The ocular iridocorneal angle is generally an optically inaccessible area when viewed directly through the cornea due to the high angle of incidence required and the large index of refraction difference between air and cornea (n air = 1.000 and n cornea = 1.376) resulting in total internal reflection. Gonioscopy allows for viewing of the angle by removing the aircornea interface through the use of a special contact lens on the eye. Gonioscopy is used clinically to visualize the angle directly but only en face. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been used to image the angle and deeper structures via ...

    4. Artifacts in Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Measurements in Glaucoma

      Artifacts in Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Measurements in Glaucoma

      Importance Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) has an integral role in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma. Understanding the types of artifacts commonly seen in the imaging of patients being evaluated for glaucoma will help physicians better implement these data in the care of patients. Objectives To determine the frequency and distribution of SD-OCT imaging artifacts in patients being evaluated for glaucoma and to provide examples of common artifacts. Design, Setting, and Participants A retrospective cross-sectional study design was used to examine SD-OCT images (using Spectralis SD-OCT) of 277 consecutive patients who had a diagnosis of glaucoma of any stage ...

    5. Reading Center Characterization of Central Retinal Vein Occlusion Using Optical Coherence Tomography During the COPERNICUS Trial

      Reading Center Characterization of Central Retinal Vein Occlusion Using Optical Coherence Tomography During the COPERNICUS Trial

      Purpose: To determine the impact of segmentation error correction and precision of standardized grading of time domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans obtained during an interventional study for macular edema secondary to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). Methods: A reading center team of two readers and a senior reader evaluated 1199 OCT scans. Manual segmentation error correction (SEC) was performed. The frequency of SEC, resulting change in central retinal thickness after SEC, and reproducibility of SEC were quantified. Optical coherence tomography characteristics associated with the need for SECs were determined. Reading center teams graded all scans, and the reproducibility of ...

    7. A combined machine-learning and graph-based framework for the segmentation of retinal surfaces in SD-OCT volumes

      A combined machine-learning and graph-based framework for the segmentation of retinal surfaces in SD-OCT volumes

      Optical coherence tomography is routinely used clinically for the detection and management of ocular diseases as well as in research where the studies may involve animals. This routine use requires that the developed automated segmentation methods not only be accurate and reliable, but also be adaptable to meet new requirements. We have previously proposed the use of a graph-theoretic approach for the automated 3-D segmentation of multiple retinal surfaces in volumetric human SD-OCT scans. The method ensures the global optimality of the set of surfaces with respect to a cost function. Cost functions have thus far been typically designed by ...

  2. About Duke University

    Duke University

    Duke University is a private research university located in Durham, North Carolina, USA. Duke University Medical CenterFor more than 75 years, our community of scholars and students has been devoted to understanding the causes, prevention and treatment of human disease. Duke University Eye Center is part of the Medical School.  Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering established The Fitzpatrick Center for Photonics and Communications Systems in December 2000 to help turn North Carolina into a "photon forest" where research and development in photonics would create the kind of technological advance and economic growth found in California's Silicon Valley.
