    2. Prediction model for best focus, power, and spherical aberration of the cornea: Raytracing on a large dataset of OCT data

      Prediction model for best focus, power, and spherical aberration of the cornea: Raytracing on a large dataset of OCT data
      Purpose To analyse corneal power based on a large optical coherence tomography dataset using raytracing, and to evaluate corneal power with respect to the corneal front apex plane for different definitions of best focus. Methods A large OCT dataset (10,218 eyes of 8,430 patients) from the Casia 2 (Tomey, Japan) was post-processed in MATLAB (MathWorks, USA). Using radius of curvature, corneal front and back surface asphericity, central corneal ...

    3. The Reliability of Successive Scheimpflug Imaging and Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Measurements Decreases With Increasing Keratoconus Severity

      The Reliability of Successive Scheimpflug Imaging and Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Measurements Decreases With Increasing Keratoconus Severity
      Purpose: This study assesses the reliability of successive measurements of tomographic parameters in different keratoconus (KC) stages with 2 different devices. Methods: A total of 125 eyes (13 controls: 24 eyes, and 73 patients with KC: stages 1|2|3|4, n = 24|24|26|27 according to Topographical KC Classification) were repeatedly examined 5 times with the rotating Scheimpflug tomograph (Pentacam HR, Oculus, Wetzlar, Germany) and an anterior segment ...

    4. Accuracy of optical coherence tomography imaging in assessing aneurysmal remnants after flow diversion

      Accuracy of optical coherence tomography imaging in assessing aneurysmal remnants after flow diversion
      Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an ultra-high resolution real-time intravascular imaging method that is gaining interest in cerebrovascular applications. Objective To compare, in a rabbit elastase aneurysm model, digital subtraction angiography (DSA) and OCT as diagnostic tools for the assessment of aneurysmal remnants and baseline characteristics of aneurysms after flow diverter (FD) implantation. Methods With Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee approval, saccular aneurysms were created in 28 rabbits ...

    5. Optical coherence tomography-based topography determination of corneal grafts in eye bank cultivation

      Optical coherence tomography-based topography determination of corneal grafts in eye bank cultivation
      Vision loss due to corneal injuries or diseases can be treated by transplantation of human corneal grafts (keratoplasty). However, quality assurance in retrieving and cultivating the tissue transplants is confined to visual and microbiological testing. To identify previous refractive surgery or morphological alterations, an automatic, noncontact, sterile screening procedure is required. Twenty-three corneal grafts have been measured in organ culture with a clinical spectral-domain optical coherence tomographer. Employing a biconic ...

    6. Direct Visualization of a New Choroidal Vessel on Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Direct Visualization of a New Choroidal Vessel on Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      This Ophthalmic Image shows a new choroidal vessel on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in a man in his 60s. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography detects choroidal neovascularization by its indirect effects on the retina. 1 However, actual subretinal pigment epithelium (RPE) (type 1) or subretinal (type 2) 2 new vessels often are not noted.
