    3. The New Era of Retinal Imaging in Hypertensive Patients

      The New Era of Retinal Imaging in Hypertensive Patients
      Structural and functional alterations in the microcirculation by systemic hypertension can cause significant organ damage at the eye, heart, brain, and kidneys. As the retina is the only tissue in the body that allows direct imaging of small vessels, the relationship of hypertensive retinopathy signs with development of disease states in other organs have been extensively studied; large-scale epidemiological studies using fundus photography and advanced semi-automated analysis software have reported ...

    4. Application of Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography Technology in Anterior Segment Surgery

      Application of Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography Technology in Anterior Segment Surgery
      The use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology in anterior segment diseases allows for precise assessment of the changes following anterior segment surgery. Advances in microscope-integrated OCT systems have allowed the utilization of intraoperative OCT (iOCT) in anterior segment surgeries, i.e., cornea, cataract, and refractive surgery. iOCT has enabled real-time precise visualization of anterior segment tissues as well as interactions between surgical instruments and ocular tissue; thus, the device ...

      Purpose: To compare imaging modalities for the choroid of the eye, and evaluate various choroidal changes in uveitides entities. Methods: A comprehensive systematic literature review was conducted looking at current imaging modalities available to assess choroid architecture and commonly used parameters available to qualify and quantify choroidal changes, before looking at specific uveitides entities with choroidal involvement which have been broadly separated into non-infectious and infectious in etiology. Results: We ...

    9. Non-optical coherence tomography modalities for assessment of angle closure

      Non-optical coherence tomography modalities for assessment of angle closure
      Primary angle closure glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness, particularly in Asia. Its pathophysiology is based in the closure of the anterior chamber angle (ACA). In addition to gonioscopy (current reference standard), in the past decade, anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) has been incorporated in routine ophthalmic practice to help assess the configuration of the ACA. Especially in nonspecialist ophthalmology practice, gonioscopy may be less frequently performed ...

    10. 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 ...

    12. Framework for quantitative three-dimensional choroidal vasculature analysis using optical coherence tomography

      Framework for quantitative three-dimensional choroidal vasculature analysis using optical coherence tomography
      Choroidal vasculature plays an important role in the pathogenesis of retinal diseases, such as myopic maculopathy, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, central serous chorioretinopathy, and ocular inflammatory diseases. Current optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology provides three-dimensional visualization of the choroidal angioarchitecture; however, quantitative measures remain challenging. Here, we propose and validate a framework to segment and quantify the choroidal vasculature from a prototype swept-source OCT (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss ...
