    2. Using three-dimensional OCTA metrics improves repeatability on quantification of ischemia in eyes with diabetic macular edema

      Using three-dimensional OCTA metrics improves repeatability on quantification of ischemia in eyes with diabetic macular edema
      Purpose: Two-dimensional (2D) optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is known to be prone to segmentation errors, especially in pathologic eyes. Therefore, our aim was to systematically compare intra-session repeatability between repeated scans for 2D and three-dimensional (3D) OCTA metrics in quantifying retinal perfusion in eyes with diabetic macular edema (DME). Methods: Diabetic patients with diabetic retinopathy (DR) and DME who had two consecutive OCTA imaging scans obtained during the same ...

    6. Optical Coherence Tomography Biomarkers of Inflammation in Diabetic Macular Edema Treated by Fluocinolone Acetonide Intravitreal Drug-Delivery System Implant

      Optical Coherence Tomography Biomarkers of Inflammation in Diabetic Macular Edema Treated by Fluocinolone Acetonide Intravitreal Drug-Delivery System Implant
      The fluocinolone acetonide (FAc) intravitreal drug-delivery system implant is a recent, second-line, intravitreal drug for the management of diabetic macular edema (DME). FAc acts against DME with a major anti-inflammatory effect. Despite the already proved efficacy, a number of patients still show persistent DME and require anti-VEGF retreatment. The main aim of the present study was to assess the relationship between quantitative biomarkers of inflammation and both DME recovery and ...

      Optical coherence tomography angiography in diabetes: focus on microaneurysms
      The introduction of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has remarkably expanded our knowledge of the ocular vascular alterations occurring in diabetes. In this article, a review of the prominent OCTA findings in diabetes is followed by a description of salient histological and anatomical features of microaneurysms, essential for the proper interpretation of in vivo imaging of these retinal vascular abnormalities. The recent employment of a three-dimensional (3D) visualization in OCTA ...

      Guidelines on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Imaging: 2020 Focused Update
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has significantly expanded our knowledge of the ocular vasculature. In this review, we provide a discussion of the fundamental principles of OCTA and the application of this imaging modality to study the retinal and choroidal vessels. These guidelines are focused on 2020, and include updates since the 2019 publication. Importantly, we will comment on recent findings on OCTA technology with a special focus on the ...

    9. Choroidal Rift: A New OCT Finding in Eyes with Central Serous Chorioretinopathy

      Choroidal Rift: A New OCT Finding in Eyes with Central Serous Chorioretinopathy
      Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is a complex and not entirely understood retinal disease. The aim of our research was to describe a novel optical coherence tomography (OCT) finding named choroidal rift, which may be identified in the choroid of eyes with CSC. We collected data from 357 patients (488 eyes) with CSC who had structural OCT and OCT angiography (OCTA) scans obtained. Choroidal rifts were identified as polygonal (and not ...

    12. Quantification of diabetic macular ischemia using novel three‐dimensional optical coherence tomography angiography metrics

      Quantification of diabetic macular ischemia using novel three‐dimensional optical coherence tomography angiography metrics
      We applied three‐dimensional (3D) analysis to optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) to measure macular ischemia in eyes affected by non‐proliferative diabetic retinopathy (DR). A previously validated algorithm was applied to OCTA data in order to obtain 3D visualization of the retinal vasculature. Successively, a global thresholding algorithm was applied and two novel quantitative metrics were introduced: 3D vascular volume and 3D perfusion density. Two‐dimensional (2D) OCTA metrics ...

      MultiColor imaging to detect different subtypes of retinal microaneurysms in diabetic retinopathy
      Background Retinal microaneurysms (MAs) are among the earliest signs of diabetic retinopathy (DR) and are typically detected by fluorescein angiography (FA). Confocal MultiColor is a noninvasive-imaging technique able to analyze different retinal features by capturing three simultaneous reflectance images. The main aim of the present study was to characterize morphological features of MAs by means of MultiColor images and to compare these with spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and ...
