    2. Pseudo-real-time retinal layer segmentation for high-resolution adaptive optics optical coherence tomography

      Pseudo-real-time retinal layer segmentation for high-resolution adaptive optics optical coherence tomography
      We present a pseudo-real-time retinal layer segmentation for high-resolution Sensorless Adaptive Optics-Optical Coherence Tomography (SAO-OCT). Our pseudo-real-time segmentation method is based on Dijkstras algorithm that uses the intensity of pixels and the vertical gradient of the image to find the minimum cost in a geometric graph formulation within a limited search region. It segments six retinal layer boundaries in an iterative process according to their order of prominence. The segmentation ...

    4. Cascaded Deep Neural Networks for Retinal Layer Segmentation of Optical Coherence Tomography with Fluid Presence

      Cascaded Deep Neural Networks for Retinal Layer Segmentation of Optical Coherence Tomography with Fluid Presence
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging technology which can provide micrometer-resolution cross-sectional images of the inner structures of the eye. It is widely used for the diagnosis of ophthalmic diseases with retinal alteration, such as layer deformation and fluid accumulation. In this paper, a novel framework was proposed to segment retinal layers with fluid presence. The main contribution of this study is two folds: 1) we developed a ...

    5. Multi-scale and -contrast sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography

      Multi-scale and -contrast sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography
      Background: The roles of the retinal microvasculature and the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in maintaining the health and metabolic activity of the retina lend great clinical value to their high-resolution visualization. Methods: By integrating polarization diversity detection (PDD) into multi-scale and -contrast sensorless adaptive optics optical coherence tomography (MSC-SAO-OCT), we have developed a novel multi-contrast SAO OCT system for imaging pigment in the RPE as well as flow in the ...

    6. System and method for dynamic focus control

      System and method for dynamic focus control
      En face views of OCT volumes provide important and complementing visualizations of the retina and optic nerve head investigating biomarkers of diseases affecting the retina. We demonstrate the combination of real time processing of OCT volumetric data for axial tracking. In combination with a Controllable Optical Element (COE), this invention demonstrates acquisition, real time tracking, automated focus on depth resolved en face layers extracted from a volume, and focus stacked ...

    7. Deep-Learning based Multiclass Retinal Fluid Segmentation and Detection in Optical Coherence Tomography Images using a Fully Convolutional Neural Network

      Deep-Learning based Multiclass Retinal Fluid Segmentation and Detection in Optical Coherence Tomography Images using a Fully Convolutional Neural Network
      As a non-invasive imaging modality, optical coherence tomography (OCT) can provide micrometer-resolution 3D images of retinal structures. These images can help reveal disease-related alterations below the surface of the retina, such as the presence of edema, or accumulation of fluid which can distort vision, and are an indication of disruptions in the vasculature of the retina. In this paper, a new framework is proposed for multiclass fluid segmentation and detection ...

      EN FACE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY AND OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY OF INNER RETINAL DIMPLES AFTER INTERNAL LIMITING MEMBRANE PEELING FOR FULL-THICKNESS MACULAR HOLES
      Purpose: To quantitatively and qualitatively evaluate the microvascular and structural abnormalities associated with inner retinal dimpling after internal limiting membrane peeling for full-thickness macular holes using sequential en face optical coherence tomography ( OCT ) and OCT angiography. Methods: Thirteen eyes of 13 patients with idiopathic full-thickness macular holes were enrolled in the study. Patients were treated with pars plana vitrectomy , internal limiting membrane peeling, and gas tamponade. Subjects were evaluated preoperatively ...

    9. Automated identification of cone photoreceptors in adaptive optics optical coherence tomography images using transfer learning

      Automated identification of cone photoreceptors in adaptive optics optical coherence tomography images using transfer learning
      Automated measurements of the human cone mosaic requires the identification of individual cone photoreceptors. The current gold standard, manual labeling, is a tedious process and can not be done in a clinically useful timeframe. As such, we present an automated algorithm for identifying cone photoreceptors in adaptive optics optical coherence tomography (AO-OCT) images. Our approach fine-tunes a pre-trained convolutional neural network originally trained on AO scanning laser ophthalmoscope (AO-SLO) images ...

    10. Visible light sensorless adaptive optics for retinal structure and fluorescence imaging

      Visible light sensorless adaptive optics for retinal structure and fluorescence imaging
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has emerged as a powerful imaging instrument and technology in biomedicine. OCT imaging is predominantly performed using wavelengths in the near infrared; however, visible light (VIS) has been recently employed in OCT systems with encouraging results for high-resolution retinal imaging. Using a broadband supercontinuum VIS source, we present a sensorless adaptive optics (SAO) multimodal imaging system driven by VIS-OCT for volumetric retinal structural imaging, followed by ...

    11. Aperture Phase Modulation with Adaptive Optics: A Novel Approach for Speckle Reduction and Structure Extraction in Optical Coherence Tomography

      Aperture Phase Modulation with Adaptive Optics: A Novel Approach for Speckle Reduction and Structure Extraction in Optical Coherence Tomography
      Speckle is an inevitable consequence of the use of coherent light in optical coherence tomography (OCT), and often acts as noise that obscures micro-structures of biological tissue. We here present a novel method of suppressing speckle noise intrinsically compatible with adaptive optics (AO) in OCT system: by modulating the phase inside the imaging system pupil aperture with a segmented deformable mirror, thus producing minor perturbations in the point spread function ...

    12. Label‐free volumetric imaging of conjunctival collecting lymphatics ex vivo by optical coherence tomography lymphangiography

      Label‐free volumetric imaging of conjunctival collecting lymphatics ex vivo by optical coherence tomography lymphangiography
      We employ optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical coherence microscopy (OCM) to study conjunctival lymphatics in porcine eyes ex vivo . This study is a precursor to the development of in vivo imaging of the collecting lymphatics for potentially guiding and monitoring glaucoma filtration surgery. OCT scans at 1300 nm and higher‐resolution OCM scans at 785 nm reveal the lymphatic vessels via their optical transparency. Equivalent signal characteristics are also ...

    13. Effective bidirectional scanning pattern for optical coherence tomography angiography

      Effective bidirectional scanning pattern for optical coherence tomography angiography
      We demonstrate the utility of a novel scanning method for optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Although raster scanning is commonly used for OCTA imaging, a bidirectional approach would lessen the distortion caused by galvanometer-based scanners as sources continue to increase sweep rates. As shown, a unidirectional raster scan approach has a lower effective scanning time than bidirectional approaches; however, a strictly bidirectional approach causes contrast variation along the B-scan direction ...

    14. Investigation of the effect of directional (off-axis) illumination on the reflectivity of retina layers in mice using swept-source optical coherence tomography

      Investigation of the effect of directional (off-axis) illumination on the reflectivity of retina layers in mice using swept-source optical coherence tomography
      Changes in visibility of the Henle fiber layer and photoreceptor bands of the human retina with illumination directionality have been reported in OCT clinical imaging. These are a direct consequence of the changes in back scattering due to fibrous tissue orientation and to waveguiding properties of the photoreceptors respectively. Here we report the preliminary results of a study on the effects of retinal images acquired with OCT of illumination directionality ...
