    2. Influence of disc area on retinal nerve fiber layer thickness measurement by spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Influence of disc area on retinal nerve fiber layer thickness measurement by spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Background: To examine the effect of optic disc area on peripapillary RNFLT (retinal nerve fiber layer thickness) measurement at circle diameter of 3.4 mm around optic nerve head using spectral OCT/SLO (Optical coherence tomography/scanning laser ophthalmoscope). Materials and Methods : In this prospective, cross sectional study, one hundred and two eyes of 102 normal subjects underwent RNFLT and disc area measurement using spectral OCT/SLO. Based on disc area, subjects were divided into three groups i.e., <3 mm 2 (32 eyes), 3-4 mm 2 (36 eyes) and >4 mm 2 (34 eyes). The effect of disc area ...

    3. Intra-operative OCT devices for ophthalmic use: an overview

      Intra-operative OCT devices for ophthalmic use: an overview

      It is feasible to bring the currently most used examination method in ophthalmology, optical coherence tomography (OCT), into ophthalmic surgery to enhance information and control for the surgeon and increase outcome for the patient. In this overview, the currently commercially available OCT devices intending intra-operative OCT imaging are described. Further experience with these systems might not only aid in solving current problems but also open our minds to detect processes so far unknown and help answer questions so far unaddressed.

    4. Improvements In Or Relating To Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopes

      Improvements In Or Relating To Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopes

      A scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) for imaging the retina of an eye comprises a source (12) of collimated light, a scanning device (14, 16, 1328, 1319), a scan transfer device (20) and a detector (1310). The scan transfer device has a first focus (16) at which an apparent point source is provided and a second focus (24) at which an eye (524, 1324) may be accommodated. The scan transfer device transfers a two-dimensional collimated light scan from the apparent point source into the eye. An optical coherence tomography (OCT) system (900) is combined with the SLO, the OCT system providing ...

      Development of a widefield phantom eye for retinal optical coherence tomography

      We report the design, manufacture and assessment of a phantom eye that can be used to measure the performance and accuracy of ophthalmic-OCT devices. We base our design on a wide-field schematic eye, R. Navarro, J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 2 (1985), to allow the assessment of device performance relative to ± 70° external field of view. We have fabricated the phantom eye and have verified the structural dimensions of the multi-material 3D-printed retinal targets using calibrated-OCT images.

    7. Cirrus High-definition Optical Coherence Tomography Versus Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography/Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy in the Diagnosis of Glaucoma

      Cirrus High-definition Optical Coherence Tomography Versus Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography/Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy in the Diagnosis of Glaucoma

      Purpose : This study was performed to compare the positive predictive value of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements obtained using Cirrus high-definition optical coherence tomography (Cirrus HD-OCT; Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA) and spectral OCT/scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO) (OPKO/OTI, Miami, FL) in the diagnosis of glaucoma. Methods : A total of 50 eyes of 50 healthy subjects and 60 eyes of 60 subjects with glaucoma were included. All participants underwent RNFL thickness measurement using Cirrus HD-OCT and spectral OCT/SLO on the same day. Average, quadrant, clock-hour RNFL thicknesses, area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC ...

    8. Characteristic Findings of Optical Coherence Tomography in Retinal Angiomatous Proliferation

      Characteristic Findings of Optical Coherence Tomography in Retinal Angiomatous Proliferation

      Purpose To identify the unique pathologic findings of retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) in optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods Retrospectively, 29 eyes of 25 patients with age-related macular degeneration and complicated RAP were analyzed. All 29 eyes had choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in the area of pigment epithelial detachment (PED) or adjacent to it, which was visible with fluorescein angiography or indocyanine green angiography. Cross-sectional images were obtained by OCT scanning through the CNV lesions. Results Six distinctive findings of OCT included drusen (100%), inner retinal cyst (80%), outer retinal cyst (68%), fibrovascular PED (84%), serous retinal detachment (40%), and PED (68 ...

    9. Swept source OCT apparatus

      Swept source OCT apparatus

      A method of performing spectral OCT imaging on a target involves repeatedly scanning said target along a transverse scanning line with an object beam derived from an OCT interferometer having a narrowband source. The wavelength of the narrowband source is modulated over a range of wavelengths at a rate that is slow relative to the rate of scanning the target. The object beam returned from the target is detected to produce a set of data obtained from multiple scans along said scanning line over the entire range of wavelengths. The data is then processed to extract an OCT image (typically ...
