    2. A pilot study investigating anterior segment optical coherence tomography angiography as a non-invasive tool in evaluating corneal vascularisation

      A pilot study investigating anterior segment optical coherence tomography angiography as a non-invasive tool in evaluating corneal vascularisation
      The current assessment of corneal vascularisation (CV) relies on slit-lamp examination, which may be subjective. Dye-based angiographies, like indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), allows for good visualisation of anterior segment blood vessels. However, ICGA is invasive and can be associated with systemic adverse effects. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography angiography (AS-OCTA) is a non-invasive tool that has been shown to successfully delineate CV. However, there are no previous studies that have ...

    3. Effect of spectral leakage on the image formation of Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography

      Effect of spectral leakage on the image formation of Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography
      We report on the investigation of spectral leakages impact on the reconstruction of Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT). We discuss the shift-variant nature introduced by the spectral leakage and develop a novel spatial-domain FD-OCT image formation model. A proof-of-concept phantom experiment is conducted to validate our model. Compared with previous models, the proposed framework could better describe the image formation process, especially when the fineness of the axial structure approaches ...

    4. Comparison of two different optical coherence tomography angiography devices in detecting healthy versus glaucomatous eyes - an observational cross-sectional study

      Comparison of two different optical coherence tomography angiography devices in detecting healthy versus glaucomatous eyes - an observational cross-sectional study
      Background: To understand the differences between two different optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) devices in detecting glaucomatous from healthy eyes by comparing their vascular parameters, diagnostic accuracy and test-retest reliability. Methods: A cross-sectional observational study was performed on healthy and glaucoma subjects, on whom two sets of OCTA images of optic disc and macula were acquired using both AngioVue (Optovue, USA) and Swept Source (Topcon, Japan) OCTA devices during one ...

    5. Evaluation of ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography for basal cell carcinoma, seborrheic keratosis, and nevus

      Evaluation of ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography for basal cell carcinoma, seborrheic keratosis, and nevus
      Background: Basal cell carcinoma, seborrheic keratosis, and nevus are common skin conditions. Though most of the skin diseases can be distinguished from each other by physician's naked eyes, the diagnostic accuracy is not 100%. The accurate diagnosis and assessment of three diseases make a big difference on the clinical management. Nowadays, biopsy is still the gold standard for diagnosis even it is invasive, time-consuming, and painful. Ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence ...

    6. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography angiography for iris vasculature in pigmented eyes

      Anterior segment optical coherence tomography angiography for iris vasculature in pigmented eyes
      Purpose To compare anterior segment optical coherence tomography angiography (AS-OCTA) systems in delineating normal iris vessels and iris neovascularisation (NVI) in eyes with pigmented irides. Methods Prospective study from January 2019 to June 2019 of 10 consecutive patients with normal pigmented iris, had AS-OCTA scans with a described illumination technique, before using the same protocol in five eyes with NVI (clinical stages 13). All scans were sequentially performed using a ...

    7. Novel Approaches for Imaging-Based Diagnosis of Ocular Surface Disease

      Novel Approaches for Imaging-Based Diagnosis of Ocular Surface Disease
      Imaging has become indispensable in the diagnosis and management of diseases in the posterior part of the eye. In recent years, imaging techniques for the anterior segment are also gaining importance and are nowadays routinely used in clinical practice. Ocular surface disease is often synonymous with dry eye disease, but also refers to other conditions of the ocular surface, such as Meibomian gland dysfunction or keratitis and conjunctivitis with different ...

    8. Deep learning architecture “LightOCT” for diagnostic decision support using optical coherence tomography images of biological samples

      Deep learning architecture “LightOCT” for diagnostic decision support using optical coherence tomography images of biological samples
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is being increasingly adopted as a label-free and non-invasive technique for biomedical applications such as cancer and ocular disease diagnosis. Diagnostic information for these tissues is manifest in textural and geometric features of the OCT images, which are used by human expertise to interpret and triage. However, it suffers delays due to the long process of the conventional diagnostic procedure and shortage of human expertise. Here ...

    9. Methods to improve axial resolution in optical coherence tomography

      Methods to improve axial resolution in optical coherence tomography
      Methods are proposed to improve axial resolution in optical coherence tomography (OCT). In one aspect, the method comprises: obtaining a k-space interferogram of an OCT spectral image; uniformly reshaping the k-space interferogram to a quasi-stationary interferogram by extracting a source envelope; fitting a spectral estimation model to the quasi-stationary interferogram; and calculating an axial depth profile using the fitted spectral estimation model.

    10. Stable complex conjugate artifact removal in OCT using circularly polarized light as reference

      Stable complex conjugate artifact removal in OCT using circularly polarized light as reference
      In Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FDOCT), the depth profile is mirrored about the zero delay between the sample and reference optical paths, limiting the imaging depth to half of the entire ranging space and undermining the optimal sensitivity window. We present a new method, to the best of our knowledge, to remove the complex conjugate artifact by using circularly polarized light as reference. Quadrature detection of the complex fringe ...

    11. Are choriocapillaris flow void features robust to diurnal variations? A swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) study

      Are choriocapillaris flow void features robust to diurnal variations? A swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) study
      We evaluated the impact of diurnal variation on choroidal and retinal microvasculature and structural measurements using a swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography machine (SS-OCTA; PLEX Elite 9,000, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., Dublin, USA). Fourteen participants who were without ocular diseases underwent SS-OCTA imaging using 33-mm 2 macular scan pattern on two separate days at five time points. Choriocapillaris flow voids were generated to determine its density (percentage), size (m ...

    12. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Diabetes and Diabetic Retinopathy

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Diabetes and Diabetic Retinopathy
      Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a common complication of diabetes mellitus that disrupts the retinal microvasculature and is a leading cause of vision loss globally. Recently, optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has been developed to image the retinal microvasculature, by generating 3-dimensional images based on the motion contrast of circulating blood cells. OCTA offers numerous benefits over traditional fluorescein angiography in visualizing the retinal vasculature in that it is non-invasive and ...

    13. Comparison of retinal vessel diameter measurements from swept-source OCT angiography and adaptive optics ophthalmoscope

      Comparison of retinal vessel diameter measurements from swept-source OCT angiography and adaptive optics ophthalmoscope
      Background/ims To compare the retinal vessel diameter measurements obtained from the swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA; Plex Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec, USA) and adaptive optics ophthalmoscope (AOO; RTX1, Imagine Eyes, France). Methods Fifteen healthy subjects, 67% women, mean age (SD) 30.87 (6.19) years, were imaged using OCTA and AOO by a single experienced operator on the same day. Each eye was scanned using two OCTA ...
