    2. Investigation of the hyper-reflective inner/outer segment band in optical coherence tomography of living frog retina

      Investigation of the hyper-reflective inner/outer segment band in optical coherence tomography of living frog retina
      This study is to test anatomic correlates, including connecting cilium (CC) and inner segment (IS) ellipsoid, to the hyper-reflective band visualized by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and commonly attributed to the photoreceptor inner/outer segment (IS/OS) junction. A line-scan OCT (LS-OCT) was constructed to achieve sub-cellular resolution (lateral: ∼ 2  μm; axial: ∼ 4  μm) of excised living frog retinas. An electro-optic phase modulator was employed for rapid and vibration-free phase ...

    6. Profile and Predictors of Normal Ganglion Cell-Inner Plexiform Layer Thickness Measured with Frequency Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Profile and Predictors of Normal Ganglion Cell-Inner Plexiform Layer Thickness Measured with Frequency Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose. To describe the profile and identify the predictors of the ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) thickness measured with frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) in normal eyes. Methods. Two hundred and eighty-two normal subjects underwent macular and optic disc scanning in both eyes using Cirrus HD-OCT. Linear regression analyses were performed to determine the association between GCIPL thickness and age, gender, ethnicity (Europeans, Africans, Hispanics, Asians, and Indians), eye laterality ...

      University of Alabama Xincheng Yao earns NSF Career Award for retinal research
      Xincheng Yao, Ph.D., an assistant biomedical engineering professor in the UAB School of Engineering, has received a National Science Foundation Career Award. The five-year, $400,000 award benefits Yao’s research into the development of an optical coherence tomography instrument that provides sub-cellular- and sub-millisecond-resolution imaging of the human retina. The technology promises a high-resolution method for noninvasive evaluation of retinal neural function and dynamics, which could significantly advance ...

  2. About University of Alabama

    University of Alabama

    The University of Alabama (also known as Alabama, UA, or colloquially as 'Bama) is a public coeducational university located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA. Founded in 1831, UA is the flagship school of the University of Alabama System. Within Alabama, it is often called the Capstone. UA is the senior and the largest in terms of enrollment of the state's major research universities, the others being academic and athletic rival Auburn University and fellow UA System institutions the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Outside the state, it is well known for the fact that its athletic teams are nicknamed the "Crimson Tide" (crimson being one of the school colors).   The University of Alabama offers programs of study in 12 academic divisions leading to bachelor's, master's, Education Specialist, and doctoral degrees. The only publicly-supported law school in Alabama is at UA. Other academic programs unavailable elsewhere in Alabama include doctoral programs in anthropology, library and information studies, metallurgical and material engineering, music, Romance languages, and social work.  As of fall 2007, Alabama has an enrollment of 25,580 students and its president is Dr. Robert Witt. The University of Alabama has the highest ranking in the 2008 edition of the US News and World Report: America's Best Colleges of any university in the state of Alabama."
