    2. Reproducibility of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Macular and Optic Nerve Head Vascular Density in Glaucoma and Healthy Eyes

      Reproducibility of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Macular and Optic Nerve Head Vascular Density in Glaucoma and Healthy Eyes
      Purpose: Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a non-invasive technology that allows visualization of retinal blood vessels. It is important to determine reproducibility of measurements as low precision can impair its diagnostic capabilities. The purpose of this study is to determine intra-visit and inter-visit reproducibility of optic nerve head (ONH) and macular vessel density measurements with OCT-A. Patients and Methods: Fifteen healthy volunteers and fourteen glaucoma patients completed two OCT-A ...

    6. Automated circumferential construction of first-order aqueous humor outflow pathways using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

      Automated circumferential construction of first-order aqueous humor outflow pathways using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography
      The purpose was to create a three-dimensional (3-D) model of circumferential aqueous humor outflow (AHO) in a living human eye with an automated detection algorithm for Schlemms canal (SC) and first-order collector channels (CC) applied to spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Anterior segment SD-OCT scans from a subject were acquired circumferentially around the limbus. A Bayesian Ridge method was used to approximate the location of the SC on infrared confocal ...

      Determinants of Peripapillary and Macular Vessel Densities Measured by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Normal Eyes
      PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of subject-related (age, sex, and systemic hypertension and diabetes), eye-related (refractive error, optic disc size), and technology-related (signal strength index, SSI of the scans) determinants on the peripapillary and macular vessel densities measured with optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in normal eyes. METHODS In a cross-sectional study, 181 normal eyes of 107 subjects (45 men, 62 women, median age ...

    8. Relationship of Optic Nerve Structure and Function to Peripapillary Vessel Density Measurements of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Glaucoma

      Relationship of Optic Nerve Structure and Function to Peripapillary Vessel Density Measurements of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Glaucoma
      Purpose: To evaluate the sectoral and global structure-structure (vessel density-retinal nerve fiber layer thickness) and structure-function (vessel density-visual sensitivity loss) relationships of peripapillary vessel density measurements on optical coherence tomography angiography in primary open-angle glaucoma and to determine if fractional polynomial (FP) models characterize the relationships better than linear models. Materials and Methods: In a cross-sectional study, structure-structure and structure-function relationships of peripapillary vessel densities were determined in 227 eyes ...
