    2. Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography Metrics are Unchanged in Verubecestat Alzheimer's Disease Clinical Trial but Correlate with Baseline Regional Brain Atrophy

      Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography Metrics are Unchanged in Verubecestat Alzheimer's Disease Clinical Trial but Correlate with Baseline Regional Brain Atrophy
      Background: We performed exploratory analyses of retinal thickness data from a clinical trial of the APP cleaving enzyme (BACE) inhibitor verubecestat in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Objective: To evaluate: 1) possible retinal thickness changes following BACE inhibition; and 2) possible association between retinal thickness and brain atrophy. Methods: Retinal thickness was measured using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in a 78-week randomized placebo-controlled trial of verubecestat in 1,785 ...

    3. A pilot exploration using optical coherence tomography angiography analysis of capillary vascular density and foveal avascular zone for the diagnosis of uveal melanoma

      A pilot exploration using optical coherence tomography angiography analysis of capillary vascular density and foveal avascular zone for the diagnosis of uveal melanoma
      Dear Editor, Choroidal melanoma is a rare malignancy, and in one study from the United Kingdom, up to 30% of patients referred by the general ophthalmologist to an ocular oncology center were misdiagnosed. [1] Later, the mnemonic To find small ocular melanoma using helpful hints daily [2] was established to aid in the detection of this malignancy at an early point. With the rapid advancements in ocular imaging technology, quantifiable ...

    4. Overhead Mounted Optical Coherence Tomography in Childhood Glaucoma Evaluation

      Overhead Mounted Optical Coherence Tomography in Childhood Glaucoma Evaluation
      Prcis: Overhead mounted spectral-domain optical coherence tomography enables high quality imaging of the optic nerve and macula in childhood glaucoma and is particularly useful when standard tabletop optical coherence tomography has failed or is not possible. Purpose: Tabletop optical coherence tomography, integral to adult glaucoma management, can be limited in childhood glaucoma patients due to young age, poor cooperation, and/or technical challenges. To address these imaging difficulties, we determined ...

    7. Utility of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in Centers For Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)-defined Severe Glaucoma Patients

      Utility of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in Centers For Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)-defined Severe Glaucoma Patients
      Precis: Patients with Centers For Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)-defined severe glaucoma often have clinically useful remaining retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), suggesting that structurally based rather than functionally based criteria would be more appropriate to use as guidelines for the utilization of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging. Purpose: RNFL OCT in glaucomatous eyes with advanced structural damage can reach a floor after which there is no further detectable ...

    8. Optical Coherence Tomography Monitoring in a Patient With Retinoblastoma

      Optical Coherence Tomography Monitoring in a Patient With Retinoblastoma
      A 17-month-old girl with group B retinoblastoma in her right eye developed recurrence of a parafoveal tumor ( Figure , A) after 6 cycles of intravenous chemotherapy. Despite treatment with indocyanine greenenhanced transpupillary thermotherapy, optical coherence tomography (vertical orientation) demonstrated continued tumor growth toward the foveola. The patient was subsequently treated with 2 cycles of intra-arterial chemotherapy, after which complete tumor regression to a flat scar was documented clinically and by optical ...

    9. OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY DETECTS SUBCLINICAL RADIAL PERIPAPILLARY CAPILLARY DENSITY REDUCTION AFTER PLAQUE RADIOTHERAPY FOR CHOROIDAL MELANOMA

      OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY DETECTS SUBCLINICAL RADIAL PERIPAPILLARY CAPILLARY DENSITY REDUCTION AFTER PLAQUE RADIOTHERAPY FOR CHOROIDAL MELANOMA
      Purpose: To evaluate radial peripapillary capillary density (RPCD) in irradiated eyes without radiation papillopathy clinically. Methods: Patients treated with plaque radiotherapy for unilateral choroidal melanoma without radiation papillopathy clinically received optical coherence tomography and optical coherence tomography angiography imaging at 12- to 24-month follow-up. Comparison of RPCD globally and meridian closest to plaque and meridian farthest to plaque of irradiated versus nonirradiated eyes was performed. Results: Mean age was 55 ...

      Utility of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Defined Severe Glaucoma Patients
      Prcis: Patients with CMS defined severe glaucoma often have clinically useful remaining RNFL, suggesting that structurally-based rather than functionally-based criteria would be more appropriate to use as guidelines for the utilization of OCT imaging. Purpose: RNFL OCT in glaucomatous eyes with advanced structural damage can reach a floor after which there is no further detectable thinning of RNFL. Insurers are considering limiting coverage for OCT in severe stage glaucoma defined ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography to Assess Anatomic Changes in Recipients of Electronic Retinal Implants Getting Closer to the Promised Land of Sight for All
      They came to Bethsaida. Some people brought a blind man to him and begged him to touch him. 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village; and when he had put saliva on his eyes and laid his hands on him, he asked him, Can you see anything? 24 And the man looked up and said, I can see people, but they ...

    13. Microvascular Capillary Plexus Findings of Commotio Retinae on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Microvascular Capillary Plexus Findings of Commotio Retinae on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and histopathology features of commotio retinae (CR) have been established, but alterations of the microvascular macular capillary plexus on OCT angiography (OCTA) has not been previously studied. We present a 46-year-old man who sustained a tennis ball injury to the right eye with visual acuity reduction to 20/30 and grey-white deep macular discoloration, suggestive of CR. Spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) showed increased reflectivity and thickness of ...

    14. Optical coherence tomography of iris mammillations

      Optical coherence tomography of iris mammillations
      A 10-year-old girl presented with blurred vision of 2 months. Uncorrected visual acuity was 20/20 in both eyes (OU). Refraction revealed 0.75 diopters of astigmatism OU. Visual blur was related to a moderate convergence insufficiency. The superior 90% of the left iris was darkly pigmented and velvety in consistency with regularly spaced protuberances (mammillations) (figure 1).

    15. Hand-held optical coherence tomography monitoring of submillimeter retinoblastoma treated with indocyanine green-enhanced transpupillary therapy

      Hand-held optical coherence tomography monitoring of submillimeter retinoblastoma treated with indocyanine green-enhanced transpupillary therapy
      Over recent years, hand-held optical coherence tomography (HH-OCT) has become critical for retinoblastoma diagnosis and management. We report precise HH-OCT findings in a case of sub-millimeter retinoblastoma treated with foveal-sparing indocyanine green-enhanced transpupillary thermotherapy (ICG-TTT). A 2-month-old Caucasian female with bilateral Group B retinoblastoma showed two recurrent macular tumors in the right eye, demonstrating 88 m and 37 m of growth to 344 m and 413 m in thickness, respectively ...
