    2. Human Parafoveal Capillary Vascular Anatomy and Connectivity Revealed by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Human Parafoveal Capillary Vascular Anatomy and Connectivity Revealed by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Purpose : To assess the connection among arterioles, venules, and capillaries in three retinal capillary plexuses using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods : This was a prospective, cross-sectional, observational study including 20 eyes of 10 healthy subjects. En face and cross-sectional OCTA images were segmented to study the superficial (SCP), middle (MCP), and deep capillary plexuses (DCP). Using thin slabs and manual segmentation within the three plexuses, we examined the connections ...

    3. Visible-light optical coherence tomography oximetry based on circumpapillary scan and graph-search segmentation

      Visible-light optical coherence tomography oximetry based on circumpapillary scan and graph-search segmentation
      Visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT) enables retinal oximetry by measuring the oxygen saturation of hemoglobin (sO 2 ) from within individual retinal blood vessels. The sO 2 calculation requires reliable estimation of the true spectrum of backscattered light from the posterior vessel wall. Unfortunately, subject motion and image noise make averaging from multiple A-lines at the same depth position challenging, and lead to inaccurate sO 2 estimation. In this study, we ...

    8. In vivo broadband visible light optical coherence tomography probe enables inverse spectroscopic analysis

      In vivo broadband visible light optical coherence tomography probe enables inverse spectroscopic analysis
      We report the design and characterization of a 6 mm outer diameter pull-back circumferential scanning visible optical coherence tomography probe. The probes large visible bandwidth (500695 nm) allowed for inverse spectroscopic analysis and an axial resolution of 1.1 m 1.1m in tissue. We verify spectral imaging capabilities by measuring microsphere backscattering spectra and demonstrate in vivo spatial nanoscale characterization of tissue.

    9. Visible-light optical coherence tomography: a review

      Visible-light optical coherence tomography: a review
      Visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT) is an emerging imaging modality, providing new capabilities in both anatomical and functional imaging of biological tissue. It relies on visible light illumination, whereas most commercial and investigational OCTs use near-infrared light. As a result, vis-OCT requires different considerations in engineering design and implementation but brings unique potential benefits to both fundamental research and clinical care of several diseases. Here, we intend to provide a ...

    10. Small Hyperreflective Intraretinal Material Observable on Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in High Myopia

      Small Hyperreflective Intraretinal Material Observable on Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in High Myopia
      With the rapid adoption of spectraldomain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in clinical practice and recent advances in technology, SD-OCT has become an important tool for detecting and managing retinal pathology. The diagnosis of degenerative changes in pathologic myopia can sometimes be difficult and delayed, as the clinical presentation may be subtle. In this series, SD-OCT proved useful in the detection of small hyperreflective intraretinal material in cases in which retinal ...

    13. Spectroscopic Doppler analysis for visible-light optical coherence tomography

      Spectroscopic Doppler analysis for visible-light optical coherence tomography
      Retinal oxygen metabolic rate can be effectively measured by visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT), which simultaneously quantifies oxygen saturation and blood flow rate in retinal vessels through spectroscopic analysis and Doppler measurement, respectively. Doppler OCT relates phase variation between sequential A-lines to the axial flow velocity of the scattering medium. The detectable phase shift is between and due to its periodicity, which limits the maximum measurable unambiguous velocity without phase ...
