    2. Pulsatile tissue deformation dynamics of the murine retina and choroid mapped by 4D optical coherence tomography

      Pulsatile tissue deformation dynamics of the murine retina and choroid mapped by 4D optical coherence tomography
      Irregular ocular pulsatility and altered mechanical tissue properties are associated with some of the most sight-threatening eye diseases. Here we present 4D optical coherence tomography (OCT) for the quantitative assessment and depth-resolved mapping of pulsatile dynamics in the murine retina and choroid. Through a pixel-wise analysis of phase changes of the complex OCT signal, we reveal spatiotemporal displacement characteristics across repeated frame acquisitions. We demonstrate in vivo fundus elastography (FUEL ...

    3. Multi-task learning approach for volumetric segmentation and reconstruction in 3D OCT images

      Multi-task learning approach for volumetric segmentation and reconstruction in 3D OCT images
      The choroid is the vascular layer of the eye that supplies photoreceptors with oxygen. Changes in the choroid are associated with many pathologies including myopia where the choroid progressively thins due to axial elongation. To quantize these changes, there is a need to automatically and accurately segment the choroidal layer from optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. In this paper, we propose a multi-task learning approach to segment the choroid from ...

    4. Quantification of intrinsic optical signals in the outer human retina using optical coherence tomography

      Quantification of intrinsic optical signals in the outer human retina using optical coherence tomography
      Intrinsic optical signals constitute a noninvasive biomarker promising the objective assessment of retinal photoreceptor function. We employed a commercial optical coherence tomography (OCT) system and an OCT signal model for evaluation of optical path length (OPL) changes in the temporal outer retina of five healthy subjects during light adaptation. Data were acquired at 30 time points, in ambient light and during long duration stimulation with white light, and analyzed, employing ...

Methods: Twenty-four healthy volunteers participated in this randomized, double-masked, cross-over study. For each subject, two study days were scheduled: on one study day, hyperoxia was induced by breathing 100% oxygen whereas on the other study day, hypoxia was induced by breathing a mixture of ...

      Combining OCT and OCTA for Focal Structure-Function Modeling in Early Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma
      Purpose: To investigate modeling of the focal visual field (VF) loss by combining structural measurements and vascular measurements in eyes with early primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Methods: In this cross-sectional study, subjects with early glaucoma (VF mean deviation, -6 dB) underwent optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging, optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) imaging, and Humphrey 24-2 VF tests. Capillary perfusion densities (CPDs) were calculated after the removal of large vessels in ...

    7. The Application of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Systemic Hypertension: A Meta-Analysis

      The Application of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Systemic Hypertension: A Meta-Analysis
      Objective: Multiple studies have compared various optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) parameters in participants with systemic hypertension vs. controls and have presented discordant findings. We conducted a meta-analysis to pool together data from different studies to generate an overall effect size and find out whether OCTA parameter(s) significantly differed in participants with systemic hypertension as compared to controls. Methods: We conducted a literature search through a search of electronic ...

      Optical coherence tomography in multiple sclerosis: A 3-year prospective multicenter study
      Objective: To evaluate changes over 3 years in the thickness of inner retinal layers including the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL), and combined macular ganglion cell and inner plexiform layers (mGCIPL), in individuals with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) versus healthy controls; to determine whether optical coherence tomography (OCT) is sufficiently sensitive and reproducible to detect small degrees of neuroaxonal loss over time that correlate with changes in brain volume ...

    9. Extended focal depth Fourier domain optical coherence microscopy with a Bessel-beam – LP02 mode – from a higher order mode fiber

      Extended focal depth Fourier domain optical coherence microscopy with a Bessel-beam – LP02 mode – from a higher order mode fiber
      We present a robust fiber-based setup for Bessel-like beam extended depth-of-focus Fourier-domain optical coherence microscopy, where the Bessel-like beam is generated in a higher order mode fiber module. In this module a stable guided LP 02 core mode is selectively excited by a long period grating written in the higher order mode fiber. Imaging performance of this system in terms of lateral resolution and depth of focus was analyzed using ...

      Diagnosis of Pituitary Adenoma Biopsies by Ultrahigh Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography Using Neuronal Networks
      Objective: Despite advancements of intraoperative visualization, the difficulty to visually distinguish adenoma from adjacent pituitary gland due to textural similarities may lead to incomplete adenoma resection or impairment of pituitary function. The aim of this study was to investigate optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging in combination with a convolutional neural network (CNN) for objectively identify pituitary adenoma tissue in an ex vivo setting. Methods: A prospective study was conducted to ...

    12. Photonic integrated circuits for optical coherence tomography (Thesis)

      Photonic integrated circuits for optical coherence tomography (Thesis)
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a well established 3D cross-sectional imaging method for retinal diagnostics. However, the method is largely limited to a clinical setting, with more widespread utilization being hindered by both the size and the cost of current systems. A reduction of both would significantly increase the potential application range, especially, for point of care diagnostics. One approach to reduce the size and cost is the utilization of ...

      Reconstruction of visible light optical coherence tomography images retrieved from discontinuous spectral data using a conditional generative adversarial network
      Achieving high resolution in optical coherence tomography typically requires the continuous extension of the spectral bandwidth of the light source. This work demonstrates an alternative approach: combining two discrete spectral windows located in the visible spectrum with a trained conditional generative adversarial network (cGAN) to reconstruct a high-resolution image equivalent to that generated using a continuous spectral band. The cGAN was trained using OCT image pairs acquired with the continuous ...
