    2. Serial 3-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography Assessment of Jailed Side-Branch by Second-Generation Drug-Eluting Absorbable Metal Scaffold (From the BIOSOLVE-II Trial)

      Serial 3-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography Assessment of Jailed Side-Branch by Second-Generation Drug-Eluting Absorbable Metal Scaffold (From the BIOSOLVE-II Trial)
      Second-generation drug-eluting absorbable metal scaffold (DREAMS 2G) is used for treating coronary lesions. However, the natural history of the jailed side-branch (SB) after DREAMS 2G implantation remains to be elucidated. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of scaffold struts on jailed SBs as assessed by 3-dimensional (3D) optical coherence tomography (OCT) after implantation of DREAMS 2G. We enrolled the patients who received a DREAMS 2G implantation ...

    3. Automated Quantification of Nonperfusion Areas in 3 Vascular Plexuses With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Eyes of Patients With Diabetes

      Automated Quantification of Nonperfusion Areas in 3 Vascular Plexuses With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Eyes of Patients With Diabetes
      Importance Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a leading cause of vision loss that is managed primarily through qualitative clinical examination of the retina. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) may offer an objective and quantitative method of evaluating DR. Objective To quantify capillary nonperfusion in 3 vascular plexuses in the macula of eyes patients with diabetes of various retinopathy severity using projection-resolved OCTA (PR-OCTA). Design, Setting, and Participants Cross-sectional study at a ...

    4. Apparatus and methods for non-invasive assessment of transplant kidney viability

      Apparatus and methods for non-invasive assessment of transplant kidney viability
      A kidney viability assessment system (KVAS) is disclosed which provides objective and reliable tests to assess the viability of transplant or donor kidneys in vivo and predict their post-transplant outcomes. KVAS includes an optical device augmented by an intelligent algorithm that can evaluate the viability or quality of the donor kidney in a real-time, non-invasive way. In particular, it includes a handheld optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging device and at ...

    5. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of a murine model of chronic kidney disease

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of a murine model of chronic kidney disease
      Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is characterized by a progressive loss in renal function over time. Pathology can provide valuable insights into the progression of CKD by analyzing the status of glomeruli and the uriniferous tubules over time. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new procedure that can analyze the microscopic structure of the kidney in a non-invasive manner. This is especially important because there are significant artifacts associated with excision ...

    6. Applications of Optical Coherence Tomography in Pediatric Clinical Neuroscience

      Applications of Optical Coherence Tomography in Pediatric Clinical Neuroscience
      For nearly two centuries, the ophthalmoscope has permitted examination of the retina and optic nervethe only axons directly visualized by the physician. The retinal ganglion cells project their axons, which travel along the innermost retina to form the optic nerve, marking the beginning of the anterior visual pathway. Both the structure and function of the visual pathway are essential components of the neurologic examination as it can be involved in ...

    7. Treatment Outcomes and Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Findings of Eyes with Symptomatic Vitreomacular Adhesion Treated with Intravitreal Ocriplasmin

      Treatment Outcomes and Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Findings of Eyes with Symptomatic Vitreomacular Adhesion Treated with Intravitreal Ocriplasmin
      Purpose To determine treatment outcomes of intravitreal ocriplasmin in symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion Design Retrospective interventional case series Methods: Setting Private practice Study population 35 eyes (35 subjects) with symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion Intervention/Observation Intravitreal ocriplasmin injection from February-November 2013 Main Outcome Measure Vitreomacular adhesion resolution rate. Secondary endpoints included post-injection visual acuity, and rates of outer retinal attenuation and full thickness macular hole (MH) closure. Results The 35 subjects included ...
