    2. OCT in Diagnosis of Irregular Corneas

      OCT in Diagnosis of Irregular Corneas
      This main goal of this study is to improve the detection, classification, monitoring, and treatment of irregular corneas due to keratoconus, warpage, dry eye, scar, stromal dystrophies, and other corneal conditions. The primary goal will be achieved by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) to: Develop an OCT-based system to classify and evaluate corneal-shape irregularities. Develop OCT metrics for more sensitive detection of keratoconus progression. Develop OCT-and-topography guided phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography and Ultra-Widefield Optical Coherence Tomography in a Child With Incontinentia Pigmenti

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography and Ultra-Widefield Optical Coherence Tomography in a Child With Incontinentia Pigmenti
      Incontinentia pigmenti (IP) is a rare X-linked dominant disorder that can cause retinal nonperfusion, neovascularization, and retinal detachment. Evaluation of the peripheral retinal vasculature and appropriate treatment can reduce the risk of blindness. The authors report the use of a handheld prototype optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and ultra-widefield OCT (UWF-OCT) during exam under anesthesia of a 2-year-old with a history of severe early onset IP. UWF-OCT and OCTA may ...

    4. Automated spectroscopic retinal oximetry with visible-light optical coherence tomography

      Automated spectroscopic retinal oximetry with visible-light optical coherence tomography
      Accurate, quantitative assessment of retinal blood oxygen saturation ( sO 2 ) may provide a useful early indicator of pathophysiology in several ocular diseases. Here, with visible-light optical coherence tomography (OCT), we demonstrate an automated spectroscopic retinal oximetry algorithm to measure the sO 2 within the retinal arteries (A- sO 2 ) and veins (V- sO 2 ) in rats by automatically detecting the vascular posterior boundary on cross-sectional structural OCT. The algorithm was ...

    5. Nerve Fiber Flux Analysis Using Wide-Field Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography

      Nerve Fiber Flux Analysis Using Wide-Field Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose : To devise a method to quantify nerve fibers over their arcuate courses over an extended peripapillary area using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods : Participants were imaged with 8 8-mm volumetric OCT scans centered at the optic disc. A new quantity, nerve fiber flux (NFF), represents the cross-sectional area transected perpendicular to the nerve fibers. The peripapillary area was divided into 64 tracks with equal flux. An iterative algorithm traced ...

    6. Reduced Retinal Vessel Density in Primary Angle Closure Glaucoma: A Quantitative Study Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Reduced Retinal Vessel Density in Primary Angle Closure Glaucoma: A Quantitative Study Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Purpose: To investigate the changes in the retinal vasculature in different parts of the fundus in eyes with primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG). Methods: Healthy subjects and those with PACG were enrolled. Optical coherence tomography and a split-spectrum amplitude decorrelation angiography algorithm were used to quantify the retinal vessel densities in the parafoveal and peripapillary areas. Results: Thirty-nine eyes from 24 PACG patients and 39 eyes from 20 age- and ...

    7. Hyperglycemia Alters the Structure and Hemodynamics of the Developing Embryonic Heart

      Hyperglycemia Alters the Structure and Hemodynamics of the Developing Embryonic Heart
      Congenital heart defects (CHDs) represent the most common form of human birth defects; approximately one-third of heart defects involve malformations of the outflow tract (OFT). Maternal diabetes increases the risk of CHD by 35 fold. During heart organogenesis, little is known about the effects of hyperglycemia on hemodynamics, which are critical to normal heart development. Heart development prior to septation in the chick embryo was studied under hyperglycemic conditions. Sustained ...

    9. Automated detection of preserved photoreceptor on optical coherence tomography in choroideremia based on machine learning

      Automated detection of preserved photoreceptor on optical coherence tomography in choroideremia based on machine learning
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can demonstrate early deterioration of the photoreceptor integrity caused by inherited retinal degeneration diseases (IRD). A machine learning method based on random forests was developed to automatically detect continuous areas of preserved ellipsoid zone structure (an easily recognizable part of the photoreceptors on OCT) in sixteen eyes of patients with choroideremia (a type of IRD). Pseudopodial extensions protruding from the preserved ellipsoid zone areas are detected ...

    10. Optical coherence tomography angiography of a pigmented Fuchs' adenoma (age-related hyperplasia of the nonpigmented ciliary body epithelium) masquerading as a ciliary body melanoma

      Optical coherence tomography angiography of a pigmented Fuchs' adenoma (age-related hyperplasia of the nonpigmented ciliary body epithelium) masquerading as a ciliary body melanoma
      Purpose To report a case of age-related hypertrophy of the nonpigmented ciliary epithelium (ARH-NPCE) clinically resembling a ciliary body melanoma and report the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) findings associated with this lesion. Observations A 51-year-old male was referred for evaluation of a deeply pigmented ciliary body mass with extension through the iris root. Iridocyclectomy was performed due to concern for ciliary body melanoma. Histopathologic analysis was instead consistent with ...

      Estimating Public and Patient Savings From Basic Research—A Study of Optical Coherence Tomography in Managing Antiangiogenic Therapy
      Purpose To compare patient and Medicare savings from the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in guiding therapy for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nvAMD) to the research investments made in developing OCT by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Design Observational cohort study. Methods Main outcome measures were spending by Medicare as tracked by Current Procedural Terminology codes on intravitreal injections (67028), retinal OCT ...

      New Study Finds Federally-Funded Technology Saved Medicare $9 Billion
      A new study quantifying a 21-fold return on investment suggests an efficient and non-partisan method to cut healthcare spending is to invest in basic research. The paper tracks how a new technology aids doctors in reducing the number of unnecessary drug injections used to treat a blinding condition called wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). According to the study, Medicare has enjoyed $9 billion in savings over an eight year period ...

    13. Polarization-multiplexed, dual-beam swept source optical coherence tomography angiography

      Polarization-multiplexed, dual-beam swept source optical coherence tomography angiography
      A polarization-multiplexed, dual-beam setup is proposed to expand the field of view for a swept source optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) system. This method used a Wollaston prism to split sample path light into two orthogonal-polarized beams. This allowed two beams to shine on the cornea at an angle separation of ~ 14 degrees, which led to a separation of ~ 4.2 mm on the retina. A 3-mm glass plate was ...
