    4. University of Alabama Xincheng Yao earns NSF Career Award for retinal research

      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 ...

    6. Modeling the foveal cone mosaic imaged with adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy

      Modeling the foveal cone mosaic imaged with adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy
      To better understand the limitations of high-resolution adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (AOSLO), we describe an imaging model that examines the smallest cone photoreceptors in the fovea of normal human subjects and analyze how different factors contribute to their resolution. The model includes basic optical factors such as wavelength and pupil size, and defines limits caused by source coherence which are specific to the AOSLO imaging modality as well as ...

    7. Heterogeneous patterns of tissue injury in NARP syndrome

      Heterogeneous patterns of tissue injury in NARP syndrome
      Point mutations at m.8993TC and m.8993TG of the mtDNA ATPase 6 gene cause the neurogenic weakness, ataxia and retinitis pigmentosa (NARP) syndrome, a mitochondrial disorder characterized by retinal, central and peripheral neurodegeneration. We performed detailed neurological, neuropsychological and ophthalmological phenotyping of a mother and four daughters with NARP syndrome from the mtDNA m.8993TC ATPase 6 mutation, including 3-T brain MRI, spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), adaptive ...

    8. Longitudinal study of vision and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in multiple sclerosis

      Longitudinal study of vision and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in multiple sclerosis
      Objective Cross-sectional studies of optical coherence tomography (OCT) show that retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness is reduced in multiple sclerosis (MS) and correlates with visual function. We determined how longitudinal changes in RNFL thickness relate to visual loss. We also examined patterns of RNFL thinning over time in MS eyes with and without a prior history of acute optic neuritis (ON). Methods Patients underwent OCT measurement of RNFL thickness ...

    10. Optical coherence tomography of the retina and optic nerve – a review

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a rapid non-contact method that allows in vivo imaging of the retina, optic nerve head and retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL). Since its introduction in Ophthalmology approximately a decade ago, the use of this technology has disseminated into the clinical practice. OCT has proven to be a useful ancillary tool for assessing retinal diseases because of its capability to provide cross-sectional images of the retina ...

  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."
