    2. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) as a new diagnostic tool in uveitis

      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) as a new diagnostic tool in uveitis
      Background The broad spectrum of uveitis disorders requires a multimodal imaging approach in the daily practice of an ophthalmologist. As inflammatory conditions, they have in common an alteration in leukocyte migration. In this context, optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) might be of great value for diagnosing or following up patients with these disorders. To date, OCTA has rather been used as an additional tool besides the well-established diagnostic imaging tools ...

    5. Evaluation of Optical Coherence Tomography in Dentistry

      Evaluation of Optical Coherence Tomography in Dentistry
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a medical diagnostic tool, providing non-invasive, non-radiative and high resolution imaging. OCT has been established since many years in ophthalmology. In dentistry the diagnostic potential of OCT is currently increasingly being noticed. This clinical study includes two individual trials: (i) Longitudinal assessment of surface sealant thickness using optical coherence tomography and (ii) comparison of crevicular fluid levels of inflammatory cytokines after the application of surface ...

      Purpose : To investigate structural features of the posterior episclera and Tenon's capsule in patients with high myopia. Methods : This hospital-based observational study included highly myopic eyes (myopic refractive error 8 diopters or axial length 26.5 mm) in which the posterior sclera in its full thickness could be visualized on swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) images in all 12 radial scans centered on the fovea. We assessed the posterior ...

    7. Spectral Domain-Optical Coherence Tomography As a New Diagnostic Marker for Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus | Neurology

      Spectral Domain-Optical Coherence Tomography As a New Diagnostic Marker for Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus | Neurology
      Purpose: Characterized by a progressive onset of gait disturbances, dementia, and urinary incontinence, idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is considered a rare, but under-diagnosed disease. Non-invasive diagnostic markers are still insufficient to enable the diagnosis of iNPH with certainty and yet early treatment with ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunting can reverse symptoms and stop disease progression. Vascular circulation abnormalities in iNPH may be reflected by changes in subfoveal and peripapillary choroidal thickness ...

      Features Of Optical Coherence Tomography For The Diagnosis Of Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada Disease
      Background/Purpose: To examine the diagnostic value of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for the detection of acute VogtKoyanagiHarada (VKH) disease. Methods: Clinical charts and OCT images were retrospectively reviewed for patients consecutively diagnosed with acute VKH, subacute VKH, multifocal central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR), and posterior scleritis. All patients underwent OCT, fundus photography, and fluorescein angiography (FA) before treatment. The characteristics of OCT and FA were analyzed and recorded. Results: The ...

    9. PERIPAPILLARY ARTERIAL RING OF ZINN-HALLER IN HIGHLY MYOPIC EYES AS DETECTED BY OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY

      PERIPAPILLARY ARTERIAL RING OF ZINN-HALLER IN HIGHLY MYOPIC EYES AS DETECTED BY OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY
      Purpose: To visualize the arterial circle of Zinn-Haller (ZHAC) in highly myopic patients by using OCT-A. Methods: Two hundred and fifty-three eyes of 146 consecutive patients with axial length =26.5 mm who underwent OCT-A centered onto the optic disk were studied. Results: Arterial circle of Zinn-Haller was detectable on OCT-A images within the area of the parapapillary myopic conus in 26 (10%) of 253 eyes. The ZHAC was annular ...
