    3. Simultaneous 3D imaging of sound-induced motions of the tympanic membrane and middle ear ossicles

      Simultaneous 3D imaging of sound-induced motions of the tympanic membrane and middle ear ossicles
      Efficient transfer of sound by the middle ear ossicles is essential for hearing. Various pathologies can impede the transmission of sound and thereby cause conductive hearing loss. Differential diagnosis of ossicular disorders can be challenging since the ossicles are normally hidden behind the tympanic membrane (TM). Here we describe the use of a technique termed optical coherence tomography (OCT) vibrography to view the sound-induced motion of the TM and ossicles ...

    5. Quantitative Distinction of Unique Vocal Fold Subepithelial Architectures Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Quantitative Distinction of Unique Vocal Fold Subepithelial Architectures Using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Objectives : The primary objective of this study was to quantitatively analyze ex vivo porcine, fetal human, and adult human vocal folds by use of optical coherence tomography (OCT). A secondary objective was to quantitatively discriminate among 1-, 2-, and 3-layer lamina propria structures. Methods : We performed an analysis of the vocal folds of 10 adult pig, 3 adult human, and 2 fetal human vocal fold specimens using OCT and histologic ...

    6. Macular Imaging for Glaucoma Using Spectral-domain Optical Coherence Tomography: A Review

      Macular Imaging for Glaucoma Using Spectral-domain Optical Coherence Tomography: A Review
      Since its introduction, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become widely used and accepted as an imaging modality to detect and follow glaucoma, with measurement of the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL) being the most utilized parameter. Up until recently, macular thickness parameters have not been commonly used in glaucoma due to results of earlier studies with time-domain OCT (TD-OCT) that revealed macular imaging to be inferior to pRNFL in ...

    7. The Use of Fourth-generation Optical Coherence Tomography in Multiple Sclerosis: A Review

      The Use of Fourth-generation Optical Coherence Tomography in Multiple Sclerosis: A Review
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been routinely used to obtain high spatial resolution images of the retina and choroid non-invasively. Within the past decade, a fourth-generation OCT device using Fourier domain (FD) analysis has been developed that provides higher velocity and higher axial resolution images with better reproducibility than the previous generation time domain (TD) OCT technology. This review addresses the use of fourth-generation, FD ocular OCT in patients with ...

    8. Enhanced Depth Imaging Optical Coherence Tomography in Age-related Macular Degeneration

      Enhanced Depth Imaging Optical Coherence Tomography in Age-related Macular Degeneration
      Imaging of the choroidal layer has been limited with the conventional commercial SD-OCTs. Enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) is a modification of the standard spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) technique that enables better non-invasive imaging of the choroid. This review contains an introduction of EDI imaging technique and principles and summarizes the findings of EDI-OCT imaging in age-related macular degeneration.

    9. Portable Optical Coherence Tomography in Management of Vitreoretinal Diseases: Current Developments, Indications, and Implication

      Portable Optical Coherence Tomography in Management of Vitreoretinal Diseases: Current Developments, Indications, and Implication
      The advent of optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology has greatly enhanced our understanding of vitreoretinal diseases; it has become a routine diagnostic imaging method for the evaluation of vitreoretinal abnormalities and injuries in adult and pediatric patients. The use of OCT has recently been extended beyond the offices and clinics to perioperative and intraoperative settings. The new development in high-resolution and high-speed spectral domain OCT, along with the improvement in ...

    10. Role of OCT in the Diagnosis and Management of Macular Edema from Uveitis

      Role of OCT in the Diagnosis and Management of Macular Edema from Uveitis
      Uveitis is a potentially visually threatening disease accounting for 10% of vision loss in the developed world. 1 The most common cause of vision loss in patients with uveitis has been shown to be macular edema (ME). 1 The early detection and management of ME is critical to preserve vision in these patients. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a valuable tool in the management of many ocular diseases. The use ...

    11. Practical applications of anterior segment optical coherence tomography imaging following corneal surgery

      Practical applications of anterior segment optical coherence tomography imaging following corneal surgery
      Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) has recently emerged as an important modality for imaging of the cornea. Since its introduction less than a decade ago, it has been clinically used for the diagnosis and management of an expanding number of corneal conditions. In this review, we will discuss the applications of anterior segment optical coherence tomography after corneal surgery, focusing on penetrating and lamellar keratoplasty, keratoprosthesis, intracorneal ring segments ...

    12. Imaging of pediatric corneal diseases

      Imaging of pediatric corneal diseases
      Ocular imaging technologies continue to evolve and play increasingly important roles in both the diagnosis and management of corneal pathology. In addition to improved documentation of exam findings using increasingly better resolution photographs, newer modalities, including specular and confocal microscopy, can facilitate diagnosis by imaging single cell layers within the cornea. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) and ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) can image structures in the cornea and anterior segment ...

    13. Current and Potential Applications of Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography in Contact Lens Fitting

      Current and Potential Applications of Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography in Contact Lens Fitting
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive, high-resolution and high-speed imaging modality that has enjoyed rapid growth in ophthalmology since its development 20 years ago. Contact lens fitting is traditionally based on trial lenses, which is expensive and time-consuming. Modern anterior segment OCT is capable of generating three-dimensional ocular surface maps of the cornea and sclera with potential application in contact lens fitting. This paper reviewed the history, the ophthalmic ...

    14. Anterior Segment Imaging and the Intraocular Pressure Lowering Effect of Cataract Surgery for Open and Narrow Angle Glaucoma

      Anterior Segment Imaging and the Intraocular Pressure Lowering Effect of Cataract Surgery for Open and Narrow Angle Glaucoma
      Anterior segment imaging modalities including anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) and ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) are increasingly widespread, and can quantify several parameters of the anterior segment, such as anterior chamber depth and angle anatomy. These parameters are important to assess, particularly in patients with forms of narrow angle glaucoma. In many cases of open and narrow angle glaucoma, cataract extraction has been shown to result in favorable modification of ...
