      Purpose: To determine factors that may affect the repeatability of the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) measurement obtained using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) including instrument type, image segmentation, image quality, and fundus pathology. Patients and Methods: This prospective single-center study enrolled 43 subjects (85 eyes) with retinal vasculopathy, macular edema, optic pathology or normal contralateral eye.

    4. Sample Size Requirements of Glaucoma Clinical Trials When Using Combined Optical Coherence Tomography and Visual Field Endpoints

      Sample Size Requirements of Glaucoma Clinical Trials When Using Combined Optical Coherence Tomography and Visual Field Endpoints
      Glaucoma clinical trials using visual field (VF) endpoints currently require large sample sizes because of the slowly-progressive nature of this disease. We sought to examine whether the combined use of VF testing and non-invasive optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of the neuroretinal tissue could improve the feasibility of such trials. To examine this, we included 192 eyes of 121 glaucoma participants seen at 5 visits over a 2-year period to ...

    5. Retinal Vessel Density in Exudative and Non-Exudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Retinal Vessel Density in Exudative and Non-Exudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Importance Although the choroid contributes to the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the role of retinal perfusion is unclear. Purpose To compare retinal vascular measurements between eyes with non-exudative and exudative AMD using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). Design Retrospective, cross-sectional study. Methods OCT-A images were analyzed from 310 eyes of 182 patients (mean age 78.88.8) with non-exudative (54.2%) and exudative (45.8%) AMD to measure ...

    7. Automated quantification of choriocapillaris anatomical features in ultrahigh-speed optical coherence tomography angiograms

      Automated quantification of choriocapillaris anatomical features in ultrahigh-speed optical coherence tomography angiograms
      In vivo visualization and quantification of choriocapillaris vascular anatomy is a fundamental step in understanding the relation between choriocapillaris degradation and atrophic retinopathies, including geographic atrophy. We describe a process utilizing ultrahigh-speed swept-source optical coherence tomography and a custom-designed local min-max normalized masking algorithm to extract in vivo anatomical metrics of the choriocapillaris. We used a swept-source optical coherence tomography system with a 1.6 MHz A-scan rate to image ...

    8. Temporal speckle-averaging of optical coherence tomography volumes for in-vivo cellular resolution neuronal and vascular retinal imaging

      Temporal speckle-averaging of optical coherence tomography volumes for in-vivo cellular resolution neuronal and vascular retinal imaging
      It has been recently demonstrated that structures corresponding to the cell bodies of highly transparent cells in the retinal ganglion cell layer could be visualized noninvasively in the living human eye by optical coherence tomography (OCT) via temporal averaging. Inspired by this development, we explored the application of volumetric temporal averaging in mice, which are important models for studying human retinal diseases and therapeutic interventions. A general framework of temporal ...

    9. Noninvasive, in vivo rodent brain optical coherence tomography at 2.1  microns

      Noninvasive, in vivo rodent brain optical coherence tomography at 2.1  microns
      n biological tissue, longer near-infrared wavelengths generally experience less scattering and more water absorption. Here we demonstrate an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system centered at 2.1 microns, whose bandwidth falls in the 2.2 micron water absorption optical window, for in vivo imaging of the rodent brain. We show in vivo that at 2.1 microns, the OCT signal is actually attenuated less in cranial bone than at 1 ...

    10. Dynamic Contrast Optical Coherence Tomography reveals laminar microvascular hemodynamics in the mouse neocortex in vivo

      Dynamic Contrast Optical Coherence Tomography reveals laminar microvascular hemodynamics in the mouse neocortex in vivo
      Studies of flow-metabolism coupling often presume that microvessel architecture is a surrogate for blood flow. To test this assumption, we introduce an in vivo Dynamic Contrast Optical Coherence Tomography (DyC-OCT) method to quantify layer-resolved microvascular blood flow and volume across the full depth of the mouse neocortex, where the angioarchitecture has been previously described . First, we cross-validate average DyC-OCT cortical flow against conventional Doppler OCT flow. Next, with laminar DyC-OCT ...

    11. Directional optical coherence tomography reveals melanin concentration-dependent scattering properties of retinal pigment epithelium

      Directional optical coherence tomography reveals melanin concentration-dependent scattering properties of retinal pigment epithelium
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a powerful tool in ophthalmology that provides in vivo morphology of the retinal layers and their light scattering properties. The directional (angular) reflectivity of the retinal layers was investigated with focus on the scattering from retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). The directional scattering of the RPE was studied in three mice strains with three distinct melanin concentrations: albino (BALB/c), agouti (129S1/SvlmJ), and strongly pigmented ...

      Late Summer Course - September 4 5, 2019 - Paris High resolution imaging technologies, exemplified by adaptive optics ophthalmoscopy (AOO) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) are progressively transferring from the lab to the clinic. This is an opportunity to better understand retinal diseases, to optimize their management but also to provide novel biomarkers for other medical specialities. However, there is still an unmet need in the field of clinical interpretation of AOO ...

    13. Feature Of The Week 03/01/2019: Functional Retina lmaging using Adaptive Optics Swept-Source OCT at 1.6 MHz

      Feature Of The Week 03/01/2019: Functional Retina lmaging using Adaptive Optics Swept-Source OCT at 1.6 MHz
      Functional assessment of the retina is a critical part of both clinical ophthalmology and vision research. Several techniques exist for measuring retinal function, such as Visual acuity/contrast sensitivity tests, Psychophysics and ERG (Electroretinogram and multifocal Electroretinogram). However, these approaches have important limitations, poor spatial resolution, slightly invasive; long duration of tests. There is great excitement about emerging noninvasive approaches to measuring retinal function, both from clinical and basic scientific ...
