    2. 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 ...

      Puliafito honored with international Vision Award in Portugal
      Keck School of Medicine of USC Dean Carmen A. Puliafito received the 2012 Antnio Champalimaud Vision Award today for the invention and development of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging technology that has revolutionized the practice of ophthalmology by dramatically improving the ability of clinicians to diagnose and treat such blinding diseases as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. Puliafito accepted the award in Lisbon, Portugal, during a ceremony held at ...

    4. Mapping the Histology of the Human Tympanic Membrane by Spatial Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Mapping the Histology of the Human Tympanic Membrane by Spatial Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      The tympanic membrane is one of the major structures of the ear that aids in the hearing process, giving humans one of the five major senses. It is hypothesized that sound induced displacements of the membrane, which allow humans to hear, are directly related to the membranes medial layer which is comprised of a network of collagen fibers. Limitations in available medical imaging techniques have thus far inhibited the further ...

    5. Analysis of Normal Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness by Age, Sex, and Race Using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Analysis of Normal Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness by Age, Sex, and Race Using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose: To determine the effects of age, sex, and race on the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) in the normal human eye as measured by the spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) Spectralis machine (Heidelberg Engineering). Methods: Peripapillary SD-OCT RNFL thickness measurements were determined in normal subjects seen at a university-based clinic. One randomly selected eye per subject was used for analysis in this cross-sectional study. Multiple regression analysis was ...

    6. Reproducibility of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Measurements Using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Reproducibility of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Measurements Using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose: To evaluate the reproducibility of the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements obtained by Spectralis spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) in normal and glaucoma participants. Methods: Participants were recruited from a university-based clinic. Peripapillary RNFL thickness measurements were repeated 3 times during the same visit using the follow-up function. One eye of each participant was randomly selected for statistical analysis. Reproducibility was ...

    7. Hemodialysis-Induced Alterations in Macular Thickness Measured by Optical Coherence Tomography in Diabetic Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease

      Hemodialysis-Induced Alterations in Macular Thickness Measured by Optical Coherence Tomography in Diabetic Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease
      To evaluate changes in macular thickness measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT) during a hemodialysis (HD) session in diabetic patients with end-stage renal disease. Methods: 72 eyes of 36 diabetic patients with and without macular edema were evaluated before and immediately after an HD session. Average and maximum macular thicknesses in the central disk (6 mm in diameter) and total macular volume were measured. Results: In the eyes with diabetic ...
