    2. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of the Eye (Textbook)

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of the Eye (Textbook)
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography is an important new imaging modality that is already being used by ophthalmologists in retina centers worldwide. It uses motion as intrinsic contrast, thus obviating the need to inject any intravenous dye. It uses infrared light that is invisible to the patient, and only requires few seconds per scan. This makes it both easier to use and much better tolerated by patients than traditional dye-based ...

    4. Diagnosing Choroidal Neovascularization in Asymptomatic Individuals Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Diagnosing Choroidal Neovascularization in Asymptomatic Individuals Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a noninvasive, rapid imaging technique that generates angiographic images without intravenous dye injections. Cross-sectional studies have described the presence of asymptomatic choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in patients with intermediate age-related macular degeneration (AMD). This case report describes the OCT features on longitudinal follow-up of a patient who started with unilateral asymptomatic CNV and eventually developed symptomatic exudative AMD.

    5. Optical Coherence Tomography Features Preceding the Onset of Advanced Age-Related Macular Degeneration

      Optical Coherence Tomography Features Preceding the Onset of Advanced Age-Related Macular Degeneration
      Purpose : Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive disease with multifactorial etiology. There is a need to identify clinical features that are harbingers of advanced disease. We evaluated morphologic features of the retina and choroid on optical coherence tomography (OCT) to determine if they predict progression to advanced disease. Methods : Progressors transitioned from early or intermediate AMD to advanced disease ( n = 40 eyes), and were matched on baseline AMD grade ...

    6. Visualization of changes in the foveal avascular zone in both observed and treated diabetic macular edema using optical coherence tomography angiography

      Visualization of changes in the foveal avascular zone in both observed and treated diabetic macular edema using optical coherence tomography angiography
      Background Central vision loss in diabetic retinopathy is commonly related to diabetic macular edema (DME). The objective of this study was to describe changes between consecutive visits on optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) of the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) in eyes with DME. Methods 20 eyes from 14 patients with DME were imaged on 2 successive clinic visits separated by at least 1 month. The mean interval between visits was ...

    7. Analysis Of AGE-RELATED Choroidal Layers Thinning In Healthy Eyes Using SWEPT-SOURCE Optical Coherence Tomography

      Analysis Of AGE-RELATED Choroidal Layers Thinning In Healthy Eyes Using SWEPT-SOURCE Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose: To study the changes in the choroidal layers thickness with age in a healthy population using swept-source optical coherence tomography. Methods: Retrospective data analysis of a subgroup of eyes from a previous single-center, prospective, cross-sectional, noninterventional study. One hundred and sixty-nine healthy eyes were evaluated using swept-source optical coherence tomography. Inclusion criteria were best-corrected visual acuity between 20/20 and 20/25, spherical equivalent between 3 diopters, and no ...

      OCT Technology: Will We Be “Swept” Away?
      A look at the differences between spectral-domain and swept-source OCT, and the potential clinical benefits of swept-source. As is sometimes the case with technology, just when we get comfortable using a device and begin to understand its secrets, limitations and how to best put it to use in our practices, a shiny new instrument arrives and demands our attention. Though this imaging modality has been around for some time, swept-source ...

    9. Optical coherence tomography angiography artifacts in retinal pigment epithelial detachment

      Optical coherence tomography angiography artifacts in retinal pigment epithelial detachment
      Objective To describe optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) reflectance artifacts secondary to retinal pigment epithelial detachment (RPED). Design Retrospective review. Methods Four eyes from 4 subjects were included. Three presented with RPED and 1 eye was a normal control. Two eyes diagnosed with RPED and the normal eye were evaluated using en face OCTA centred at the fovea acquired using the RTVue XR Avanti (Optovue Inc). In the third eye ...

    10. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Nonarteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Nonarteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy
      Background: Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has demonstrated good utility in qualitative analysis of retinal and choroidal vasculature and therefore may be relevant in the diagnostic and treatment efforts surrounding nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION). Methods: Retrospective, cross-sectional study of 10 eyes of 9 patients with a previous or new diagnosis of NAION that received imaging with OCTA between November 2015 and February 2016. Two independent readers qualitatively analyzed ...

    11. Vitreomacular Hyaloid Attachment: A Normal Optical Coherence Tomography Finding

      Vitreomacular Hyaloid Attachment: A Normal Optical Coherence Tomography Finding
      Dear Editor, We would like to comment on the excellent article by Sahni, Stanga, Wong, and Harding [1]. In their paper, a number of descriptive terms for optical coherence tomography (OCT) analysis are defined in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients with subfoveal choroidal neovascularization undergoing treatment with photodynamic therapy. One term, vitreomacular hyaloid attachment (VMHA), was used to refer to incomplete separation of the posterior hyaloid with attachment at the ...

    12. OCT angiography offers dual advantage of imaging structure, blood flow

      OCT angiography offers dual advantage of imaging structure, blood flow
      tate-of-the-art of optical coherence tomography angiography in 2017 is for diagnosis and management of neovascularization, according to a speaker here. Its a single device, two modalities, Jay S. Duker, MD , said at Retina 2017. And once you get over the initial cost of buying OCTA, theres really not a lot of added cost. Its a few seconds of chair time per eye. Jay S. Duker OCT angiography allows clinicians to ...

    13. Waheed gives four steps for detecting CNV with OCT angiography

      Waheed gives four steps for detecting CNV with OCT angiography
      Even though fluorescein angiography plus high-resolution optical coherence tomography is the gold standard for detecting neovascularization, OCT angiography does a better job than FA in some situations, Nadia K. Waheed , MD, said at Retina 2017. However, interpreting the OCT angiography findings can be time consuming, with the reader needing sometimes to scroll through entire data sets. In cases of suspected choroidal neovascularization, Waheed offered guidance to help OCT angiography users ...
