    2. Comparison of Anterior Chamber Parameters in Patients With Plateau Iris Configuration and Pupillary Block Using ASOCT

      Comparison of Anterior Chamber Parameters in Patients With Plateau Iris Configuration and Pupillary Block Using ASOCT
      Purpose: To quantitatively analyze the anterior chamber parameters in patients with pupillary block (PB) and plateau iris configuration (PIC) using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT). Patients and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, nonglaucomatous subjects consecutively recruited and a total of 212 eyes divided into 3 groups of PIC (31 eyes), PB (60 eyes), and open angles (121 eyes) based on gonioscopic and ultrasound biomicroscopy findings. All patients underwent ASOCT ...

    3. Assessment of Optic Pathway Structure and Function in Patients With Compression of the Optic Chiasm: A Correlation With Optical Coherence Tomography

      Assessment of Optic Pathway Structure and Function in Patients With Compression of the Optic Chiasm: A Correlation With Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose : The purpose of this study was to investigate correlations between retinal fiber thickness measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and anterograde functional and structural differences in the optic pathway of patients with compression of the optic chiasm. Our hypothesis was that loss of visual acuity caused by chronic compressive pathologies may lead to an irreversible decline in vision because of permanent neurodegeneration of the optic radiations and visual cortex ...

    4. Biomechanical stress in coronary atherosclerosis: emerging insights from computational modelling

      Biomechanical stress in coronary atherosclerosis: emerging insights from computational modelling
      Coronary plaque rupture is the most common cause of vessel thrombosis and acute coronary syndrome. The accurate early detection of plaques prone to rupture may allow prospective, preventative treatment; however, current diagnostic methods remain inadequate to detect these lesions. Established imaging features indicating vulnerability do not confer adequate specificity for symptomatic rupture. Similarly, even though experimental and computational studies have underscored the importance of endothelial shear stress in progressive atherosclerosis ...

    5. IMPLICATION OF RECURRENT OR RETAINED FLUID ON OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY FOR VISUAL ACUITY DURING ACTIVE TREATMENT OF NEOVASCULAR AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION WITH A TREAT AND EXTEND PROTOCOL

      IMPLICATION OF RECURRENT OR RETAINED FLUID ON OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY FOR VISUAL ACUITY DURING ACTIVE TREATMENT OF NEOVASCULAR AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION WITH A TREAT AND EXTEND PROTOCOL
      Purpose: Assess the correlation between optical coherence tomography findings and change in vision for patients receiving "treat and extend" protocol ranibizumab for neovascular age-related macular degeneration. Methods: Optical coherence tomography analysis and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) change: mild = 5 to 9 letters, moderate = 10 to 14 letters, and severe =15 letters. Results: A total of 103 eyes (99 patients, 63% female, 65-91 years) followed for 20.8 +/- 4.9 months ...

    6. Ellipsoid zone on optical coherence tomography: a review

      Ellipsoid zone on optical coherence tomography: a review
      Emergence of the high-resolution optical coherence tomography has allowed better delineation of retinal layers and many of the anatomical correlations of these layers have now been agreed upon. However some anatomical correlates still remain contentious, such as the second hyper-reflective band which is now termed ellipsoid zone. Despite the lack of consensus of the actual origin of the ellipsoid zone, there has been much interest in evaluating its integrity and ...

    7. Quantitative analysis of the side-branch orifice after bifurcation stenting using en-face processing of OCT images: a comparison between Xience V and Resolute Integrity stents

      Quantitative analysis of the side-branch orifice after bifurcation stenting using en-face processing of OCT images: a comparison between Xience V and Resolute Integrity stents
      Objective: Methods for intravascular assessment of the side-branch (SB) orifice after stenting are not readily available. The aim of this study was to assess the utility of an en-face projection processing for optical coherence tomography (OCT) images for SB evaluation. Methods: Measurements of the SB orifice obtained using en-face OCT images were validated using a phantom model. Linear regression modeling was applied to estimated area measurements made on the en-face ...

    8. Advances in three-dimensional coronary imaging and computational fluid dynamics: is virtual fractional flow reserve more than just a pretty picture?

      Advances in three-dimensional coronary imaging and computational fluid dynamics: is virtual fractional flow reserve more than just a pretty picture?
      Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has shown a high success rate in the treatment of coronary artery disease. The decision to perform PCI often relies on the cardiologists visual interpretation of coronary lesions during angiography. This has inherent limitations, particularly due to the low resolution and two-dimensional nature of angiography. State-of-the-art modalities such as three-dimensional quantitative coronary angiography, optical coherence tomography and invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR) may improve clinicians understanding ...

    9. Optical coherence tomography to evaluate coronary stent implantation and complications

      Optical coherence tomography to evaluate coronary stent implantation and complications
      Coronary optical coherence tomography (OCT) is now an established imaging technique in many catheterization laboratories worldwide. With its near-histological view of the vessel wall and lumen interface, it offers unprecedented imaging quality to improve our understanding of the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis, plaque vulnerability, and vascular biology. Not only is OCT used to accurately detect atherosclerotic plaque and optimize stent position, but it can further characterize plaque composition, quantify stent apposition ...

    10. Longitudinal Evaluation of Cornea With Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography and Scheimpflug Imaging Before and After Lasik

      Longitudinal Evaluation of Cornea With Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography and Scheimpflug Imaging Before and After Lasik
      Abstract: Swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) is the latest advancement in anterior segment imaging. There are limited data regarding its performance after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). We compared the reliability of swept-source OCT and Scheimpflug imaging for evaluation of corneal parameters in refractive surgery candidates with myopia or myopic astigmatism. Three consecutive measurements were obtained preoperatively and 1 year postoperatively using swept-source OCT and Scheimpflug imaging. The study parameters ...

      Hazy filling defect on coronary angiography: insights from optical coherence tomography
      A middle-aged patient with previous stent to the left circumflex artery (LCx) 12 months before suffering from angina, now presented with acute-onset severe retrosternal chest pain with an ECG showing ST-elevation in the precordial leads (see online supplementary figure S1). He underwent emergency coronary angiography, which showed normal flow in all arteries and a patent LCx stent. The left anterior descending artery (LAD) contained a hazy filling defect in the ...

      Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography-Guided Management Algorithm for Descemet Membrane Detachment After Intraocular Surgery
      Purpose: To evaluate the role of anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) in the detection and management of Descemet membrane detachment (DMD) in cases of persistent corneal edema after intraocular surgery. An ASOCT-guided new algorithm for the management of such DMDs is described. Methods: Thirty-seven consecutive cases of persistent corneal edema of more than 2-week duration after intraocular surgery were included. All cases referred had no response to medical therapy ...
