    4. Repeatability and Reproducibility of Anterior Chamber Angle Measurement with Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients with Primary Angle Closure Suspect

      Repeatability and Reproducibility of Anterior Chamber Angle Measurement with Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients with Primary Angle Closure Suspect
      Purpose : To evaluate the inter- and intra-observer reliability of anterior chamber (AC) angle measurements obtained by swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Methods: Forty-eight consecutive patients diagnosed with primary angle closure suspect (PACS) were included. Three masked observers at different training levels (one glaucoma specialist, one ophthalmology resident, and one pre-medical college student) measured 192 SS-OCT images of the PACS patients. One observer (the glaucoma specialist) repeated measurements 1 week later ...

    7. Comparison of a New Swept-Source Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography and a Scheimpflug Camera for Measurement of Corneal Curvature

      Comparison of a New Swept-Source Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography and a Scheimpflug Camera for Measurement of Corneal Curvature
      Purpose: To evaluate the agreement of corneal curvature measured by a newly introduced swept-source anterior segment optical coherence tomography (CASIA2) and Pentacam (Oculus, Wetzlar, Germany). Methods: Corneal curvature was measured in 49 healthy subjects (age: 24.8 4.36) by using CASIA2 and Pentacam . Repeatability was evaluated for CASIA2, and agreement between the CASIA2 and Pentacam was assessed. The coefficient of repeatability, the relative coefficient of repeatability, the range of ...

    8. Rifabutin corneal deposits localized to the deep stroma using anterior segment optical coherence tomography

      Rifabutin corneal deposits localized to the deep stroma using anterior segment optical coherence tomography
      Purpose To demonstrate that rifabutin-related corneal deposits are localized to the deep stroma using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) and confocal microscopy. Observations A 55-year-old male with a history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and disseminated mycobacterium avium complex on rifabutin treatment for 3 years presented with bilateral corneal deposits. Confocal microscopy and anterior segment OCT confirm that rifabutin-related corneal deposits are located in the deep stroma, rather than ...

    9. Reflections on the Utility of the Retina as a Biomarker for Alzheimer’s Disease: A Literature Review

      Reflections on the Utility of the Retina as a Biomarker for Alzheimer’s Disease: A Literature Review
      As a part of the central nervous system, the retina may reflect both physiologic processes and abnormalities related to diseases of the brain. Indeed, a concerted effort has been put forth to understand how Alzheimers disease (AD) pathology may manifest in the retina as a means to assess the state of the AD brain. The development and refinement of ophthalmologic techniques for studying the retina in vivo have produced evidence ...

    10. Optical coherence tomography angiography assessment of retinal microvascular changes in diabetic eyes in an urban safety-net hospital

      Optical coherence tomography angiography assessment of retinal microvascular changes in diabetic eyes in an urban safety-net hospital
      PURPOSE To determine whether quantitative optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) parameters can be used to distinguish among eyes at various stages of diabetic retinopathy (DR) in an urban safety-net hospital population. DESIGN Prospective cross-sectional study PARTICIPANTS 329 eyes from 329 patients were included in this study; 90 nondiabetic patients, 170 diabetic patients without retinopathy, 57 diabetes with mild to moderate NPDR, and 12 diabetes with severe NPDR to PDR.

    11. In vitro longitudinal evaluation of enamel wear by cross-polarization optical coherence tomography

      In vitro longitudinal evaluation of enamel wear by cross-polarization optical coherence tomography
      Objectives Enamel thickness determination by Cross-Polarization Optical Coherence Tomography (CP-OCT) is a promising approach for quantitative monitoring of tooth wear progression. This study evaluated the ability of CP-OCT to quantify the thickness of natural enamel before, during and after tooth wear simulation. Materials and Methods Natural, unpolished human dental enamel slabs were submitted to five wear stages (Wear 1: to level the surfaces; Wear 2 to Wear 5: 0.05 ...
