    2. Upper limit for angular compounding speckle reduction

      Upper limit for angular compounding speckle reduction
      Angular compounding is a technique for reducing speckle noise in optical coherence tomography that is claimed to significantly improve the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of images without impairing their spatial resolution. Here, we examine how focal point movements caused by optical aberrations in an angular compounding system may produce unintended spatial averaging and concomitant loss of spatial resolution. Experimentally, we accounted for such aberrations by aligning our system and measuring distortions ...

    3. Gold Nanobipyramids as Second Near Infrared Optical Coherence Tomography Contrast Agents for Multiplexed In Vivo Lymphangiography

      Gold Nanobipyramids as Second Near Infrared Optical Coherence Tomography Contrast Agents for Multiplexed In Vivo Lymphangiography
      Developing contrast-enhanced optical coherence tomography (OCT) techniques is important for specific imaging of tissue lesions, molecular imaging, cell-tracking, and highly sensitive microangiography and lymphangiography. Multiplexed OCT imaging in the second near infrared (NIR-II) window is highly desirable since it allows simultaneous imaging and tracking of multiple biological events in high resolution with deeper tissue penetration in vivo. Here we demonstrate that gold nanobipyramids can function as OCT multiplexing contrast agents ...

    4. Intelligent Detection of Glaucoma Using Ballistic Optical Imaging

      Intelligent Detection of Glaucoma Using Ballistic Optical Imaging
      Immense imaging strategies have been adept in sprouting investigative supports for glaucoma discovery. Ballistic optical imaging such as optical coherence tomography have been inspected for estimating the key constraints for glaucoma estimation such as disc area, cup area, cup volume, disc and rim area, cup to disc ratio and thickness of the retinal nerve fibre layer. This paper presents a scheme for glaucoma detection by ballistic optical imaging and machine ...

    5. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Highlights Chorioretinal Lesions in Ocular Coccidioidomycosis

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Highlights Chorioretinal Lesions in Ocular Coccidioidomycosis
      A 34-year-old woman presented after recovering from a disseminated Coccidioides immitis infection of the lungs, blood, brain, and placenta. The patient was asymptomatic for visual complaints. Visual acuity was 20/20 in both eyes. Fundus examination demonstrated bilateral chorioretinal infiltrates worse in the left eye. Fluorescein angiography (FA) was unable to be performed as the patient was breastfeeding, prompting the use of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) imaging to further ...

    6. Real-time detection of circulating tumor cells in living animals using functionalized large gold nanorods

      Real-time detection of circulating tumor cells in living animals using functionalized large gold nanorods
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can be utilized with significant speckle reduction techniques and highly-scattering contrast agents for noninvasive, contrast-enhanced imaging of living tissues at the cellular scale. The advantages of reduced speckle noise and improved targeted contrast can be harnessed to track objects as small as 2 m in vivo, which enables applications for cell tracking and quantification in living subjects. Here we demonstrate the use of Large Gold Nanorods ...

    7. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of RPGR-Associated Retinitis Pigmentosa Suggests Foveal Avascular Zone is a Biomarker for Vision Loss

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of RPGR-Associated Retinitis Pigmentosa Suggests Foveal Avascular Zone is a Biomarker for Vision Loss
      RPGR -associated retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a progressive disease with retina degeneration. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is an imaging technique that provides novel insights. The authors report two affected male siblings who underwent OCTA imaging. The area of the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) was measured. Although the younger sibling exhibited more advanced clinical disease, his visual acuity was superior to his older sibling. OCTA imaging revealed a better preserved ...

    8. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy After Photodynamic Therapy

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy After Photodynamic Therapy
      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: To report the acute and long-term choroidal findings in patients with chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CCSC) undergoing half-fluence photodynamic therapy (PDT). PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a prospective, consecutive, interventional, noncomparative case series at a tertiary referral vitreoretinal practice. Twenty-one eyes from 21 patients are included. RESULTS: Among 21 eyes, all had improved vision following PDT during a mean of 5.2 months 4.8 months of ...

    9. Comparison of Optical Coherence Tomography With Fundus Photographs, Fluorescein Angiography, and Histopathologic Analysis in Assessing Coats Disease

      Comparison of Optical Coherence Tomography With Fundus Photographs, Fluorescein Angiography, and Histopathologic Analysis in Assessing Coats Disease
      Importance Coats disease is a rare pediatric vitreoretinopathy that can cause devastating visual and anatomic outcomes. Objective To compare optical coherence tomography (OCT) with fundus photographs, fluorescein angiography (FA), and histopathologic findings in Coats disease. Design, Setting, and Participants This retrospective cohort study was conducted in a single tertiary institution (Duke Eye Center) and identified 28 children with Coats disease through a review of medical records from December 2002 to ...

    10. Gold Nanoprisms as Optical Coherence Tomography Contrast Agents in the Second Near-Infrared Window for Enhanced Angiography in Live Animals

      Gold Nanoprisms as Optical Coherence Tomography Contrast Agents in the Second Near-Infrared Window for Enhanced Angiography in Live Animals
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is an important tool for investigating vascular networks and microcirculation in living tissue. Traditional OCTA detects blood vessels via intravascular dynamic scattering signals derived from the movements of red blood cells (RBCs). However, the low hematocrit and long latency between RBCs in capillaries make these OCTA signals discontinuous, leading to incomplete mapping of the vascular networks. OCTA imaging of microvascular circulation is particularly challenging in ...
