    10. Anatomic Localization of Type 1 and Type 2 Macular Neovascularization Using Swept-Source OCT Angiography

      Anatomic Localization of Type 1 and Type 2 Macular Neovascularization Using Swept-Source OCT Angiography
      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) and different boundary-specific segmentation strategies were used to distinguish type 1 macular neovascularization (MNV) from type 2 MNV in eyes with exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eyes with exudative AMD were enrolled in a prospective study.

    12. Attenuation correction assisted automatic segmentation for assessing choroidal thickness and vasculature with swept-source OCT

      Attenuation correction assisted automatic segmentation for assessing choroidal thickness and vasculature with swept-source OCT
      Swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) is being used more widely in clinical studies to investigate the choroid due to its deeper penetration under the retinal pigment epithelium and improved image quality compared with spectral domain OCT. However, automatic methods to reliably assess choroidal thickness and vasculature are still limited. This paper reports an approach that applies attenuation correction on SS-OCT structural scans to facilitate accurate automatic segmentation of the ...
