    7. Quantification metrics for telangiectasia using optical coherence tomography

      Quantification metrics for telangiectasia using optical coherence tomography
      Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is an autosomal dominant disorder that causes vascular malformations throughout the body. The most prevalent and accessible of these lesions are found throughout the skin and mucosa, and often rupture causing bleeding and anemia. A recent increase in potential HHT treatments have created a demand for quantitative metrics that can objectively measure the efficacy of new and developing treatments. We employ optical coherence tomography (OCT)-a ...
