    2. Single versus sequential testing with scanning peripheral anterior chamber depth analyser, IOLMaster and anterior segment optical coherence tomography for the detection of narrow angles

      Single versus sequential testing with scanning peripheral anterior chamber depth analyser, IOLMaster and anterior segment optical coherence tomography for the detection of narrow angles
      Background Scanning peripheral anterior chamber depth analyser (SPAC), IOLMaster and anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) are devices that can screen non-invasively for narrow angles (NAs) and may reduce the need for gonioscopy, especially where the availability of ophthalmologists is limited. When used individually to detect NAs, neither SPAC, AS-OCT nor IOLMaster were able to achieve both high sensitivity and specificity when using gonioscopy as a gold standard. Aims To ...

    6. Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Evaluation of the Integrity of Clear Corneal Incisions: A Comparison between 2.2-mm and 2.65-mm Main Incisions

      Purpose: To compare wound characteristics and integrity of the 2.2-mm and 2.65-mm clear corneal incisions. Design: Prospective, randomized clinical trial. Methods: Patients undergoing phacoemulsification with lens implant were randomized to receive a 2.2-mm or 2.65-mm temporal clear corneal incision. The incisions were evaluated at 2, 24, and 96 hours for gape and wound architecture using anterior segment optical coherence tomography and for integrity using the Seidel ...

    7. Biometry of the Cornea and Anterior Chamber in Chinese Eyes: an Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Purpose: To investigate the normative data of corneal and anterior segment biometric parameters in Chinese adults and their associations for use in preoperative assessment for corneal and anterior segment surgery. Methods: This cross-sectional, population based study included 750 subjects aged 50 years. The subjects underwent an ophthalmic examination including imaging using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). Dimensions were subsequently measured with the Zhongshan Assessment Program (ZAP). We also include ...

    9. Nasolabial Fold Angle Measurement Using Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography in Normal Subjects

      Purpose: The human nasolabial fold angle (NFA) has been measured using MRI and photogrammetry and has been shown to decrease with age. The authors aimed to evaluate a novel method using optical coherence tomography to measure the NFA. Methods: In this cross-sectional observational series, the authors used anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) to image the NFA of both cheeks of 126 subjects aged 21 to 79 years. A dental ...

      A microprobe that is capable of using an incident and reflected radiation ray for three-dimensional (3-D) bio-imaging. The microprobe comprises a hollow body closed at one end and having an aperture at an opposite end, at least one 3-D free space micromirror, at least one focusing lens, and a beam director or a beam coupler or other kind of device for beam coupling or splitting. The beam director is arranged ...

    11. Control of optical contrast using gold nanoshells for optical coherence tomography imaging of mouse xenograft tumor model in vivo

      The control of image contrast is essential toward optimizing a contrast enhancement procedure in optical coherence tomography (OCT). In this study, the in vivo control of optical contrast in a mouse tumor model with gold nanoshells as a contrast agent is examined. Gold nanoshells are administered into mice, with the injected dosage and particle surface parameters varied and its concentration in the tumor under each condition is determined using a ...

    12. Evaluation of Scanning Protocols for Imaging the Anterior Chamber Angle With Anterior Segment-Optical Coherence Tomography

      Purpose: To evaluate different anterior segment-optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) scanning protocols for detecting eyes with angle closure. Methods: This cross-sectional study enrolled 2104 subjects from a community clinic in Singapore. All participants underwent AS-OCT imaging in the dark (Visante, Carl-Zeiss, Meditec, Dublin, CA), and gonioscopy with a Goldmann 2-mirror and a Sussman lens by an experienced examiner. The anterior chamber angle in a particular quadrant was considered closed on gonioscopy ...

    13. Utility of Bleb Imaging With Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography in Clinical Decision-making After Trabeculectomy

      Aim: To determine if imaging of blebs with anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) affects clinical decision-making with regard to laser suture lysis (LSL) after trabeculectomy. Method: In this prospective observational case series, we included patients with poorly controlled intraocular pressure (IOP) after standardized trabeculectomy from May to November 2006. One observer assessed IOP, anterior chamber depth and bleb formation, and recorded a decision of whether or not to undertake ...
