    2. Re: Kwon et al.: Subclassification of primary angle closure using anterior segment optical coherence tomography and ultrasound biomicroscopic parameters (Ophthalmology. 2017;124:1039-1047)

      Re: Kwon et al.: Subclassification of primary angle closure using anterior segment optical coherence tomography and ultrasound biomicroscopic parameters (Ophthalmology. 2017;124:1039-1047)
      To the Editor: We read with interest the article by Sung et al. 1 In this observational study, the authors concluded that the most distinct difference between the 2 subgroups in the cluster analysis was trabecularciliary process angle (TCA) and that the position of the ciliary body is important in subclassifying primary angle closure. However, there are several limitations that may affect the results. First, in the study, the authors ...

    3. The linear artifact in enhanced depth imaging spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      The linear artifact in enhanced depth imaging spectral domain optical coherence tomography
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a valuable ancillary test in the diagnosis and management of chorioretinal disease. The evaluation of choroid thickness using OCT has become the focus of clinical applications. We report a linear artifact that acts as a confounding factor in choroidal thickness measurements by enhanced depth imaging OCT. We found that the linear artifact is located stably at a depth of 485 m beneath the retinal pigment ...

    6. Contrast improvement for swept source optical coherence tomography image of sub-surface tissue

      Contrast improvement for swept source optical coherence tomography image of sub-surface tissue
      Swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) is an attractive biological imaging technology due to its advantages of simple setup and high imaging speed. As the light intensity attenuated rapidly in high scattering biological tissues, the contrast of OCT image will drop with depth. In this paper a new method was introduced to compensate the attenuation of imaging contrast in SSOCT. The interference signal was divided into two channels of analog ...

    7. Wide-Field En Face Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Features of Extrafoveal Retinoschisis in Highly Myopic Eyes

      Wide-Field En Face Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Features of Extrafoveal Retinoschisis in Highly Myopic Eyes
      Purpose : To evaluate the features of extrafoveal retinoschisis (EFRS) in highly myopic eyes detected by swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Methods : In this retrospective case series, 89 eyes of 65 patients with high myopia and coexisting EFRS were included. The participants underwent a comprehensive ophthalmologic examination, including visual acuity, ocular biometry, refraction, and perimetry. Three-dimensional wide-field scans were obtained with SS-OCT, and en face images were reconstructed with custom software ...

    8. Anterior segment imaging using non-invasive high-resolution optical coherence tomography

      Anterior segment imaging using non-invasive high-resolution optical coherence tomography
      One of the most important developments in the ophthalmology and visual sciences field has been the application of new techniques for imaging the anterior and posterior segment of the eye with non-contact devices. These techniques have been developed quickly considering that are non-invasive and provide high-resolution images of the different parts of the human eye. Definitely, the most spread and used technique for non-contact imaging of the human eye is ...

    9. Noninvasive monitoring of blood glucose concentration in diabetic patients with optical coherence tomography

      Noninvasive monitoring of blood glucose concentration in diabetic patients with optical coherence tomography
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been used to noninvasively monitor the blood glucose concentration (BGC) in healthy subjects with good accuracy and acceptable specificity. Based on this, the paper further considered the possibility of OCT in noninvasive monitoring BGC in diabetic patients. The OCT signal slope (OCTSS) changed with variation of BGC. The correlation coefficient R between BGC and OCTSS in diabetic patients was 0.91; while the correlation coefficient ...

    10. Gold Nanoprobe-Enabled Three-Dimensional Ozone Imaging by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Gold Nanoprobe-Enabled Three-Dimensional Ozone Imaging by Optical Coherence Tomography
      Ozone (O 3 ) would be harmful to human skin for its strong oxidizing property, especially when stratum corneum or corneal epithelium is wounded. Imaging the penetration and distribution of ozone at depth is beneficial for studying the influence of ozone on skin or eyes. Here, we introduced a facile method for three-dimensional (3D) imaging of the penetration of O 3 into the anterior chamber of an isolated crucian carp eye ...

      Retinal segmented layers with strong aquaporin-4 expression suffered more injuries in neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders compared with optic neuritis with aquaporin-4 antibody seronegativity detected by optical coherence tomography
      Purpose To evaluate retinal segmented layer alterations in optic neuritis (ON) in an AQP4-Ab seropositive (AQP4-Ab+/ON) cohort and in neuromyelitis optica (NMO) with ON eyes (NMO-ON) compared with an AQP4-Ab seronegative ON (AQP4-Ab/ON) cohort using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods We recruited 109 patients with ON (161 eyes) and 47 healthy controls. All patients with ON were subdivided into three subcohorts: 37 patients (54 eyes) with AQP4-Ab+/ON ...

    13. The diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma by optical coherence tomography (OCT)

      The diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma by optical coherence tomography (OCT)
      We have attempted to explore the intrinsic differences in the optical properties of the nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and normal tissue by optical coherence tomography (OCT). OCT imaging of normal tissue provided three layers of epithelium, lamina propria, and the brighter interface of basement membrane; while carcinomas disrupted the layered construction embedded in signal-poor images. The morphologies were consistent with histological findings. Sensitivity and specificity were 90% and 100%, respectively. This ...

      Suppression of saturation artifacts in swept source optical coherence tomography using dual channel detection
      A technique to suppress saturation artifacts in swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) system was presented. The detected signal was split into two channels of a high speed data acquisition card with two levels by a power divider. The signal in one channel with higher level was used to reconstruct OCT images and the signal in the other channel with lower level was used to compensate the saturated signal in ...

    15. Choroidal thickness changes in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis

      Choroidal thickness changes in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis
      Purpose Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a common chronic disorder associated with hypoxia and endothelial and vascular dysfunction. Many studies have analyzed choroidal thickness measurements in patients with different severities of OSAS versus normal subjects by optical coherence tomography (OCT), but the results have been inconsistent. Therefore, a meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the choroidal thickness changes in OSAS measured by OCT. Methods Pertinent studies were retrieved by a ...
