    4. Long scan depth optical coherence tomography on imaging accommodation: impact of enhanced axial resolution, signal-to-noise ratio and speed

      Long scan depth optical coherence tomography on imaging accommodation: impact of enhanced axial resolution, signal-to-noise ratio and speed
      Background Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) was a useful tool to study accommodation in human eye, but the maximum image depth is limited due to the decreased signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). In this study, improving optical resolutions, speeds and the SNR were achieved by custom built SD-OCT, and the evaluation of the impact of the improvement during accommodation was investigated. Methods Three systems with different spectrometer designs, including two Charge ...

    5. Altered birefringence of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer in multiple sclerosis measured by polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Altered birefringence of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer in multiple sclerosis measured by polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography
      Background The retina has been used to study the pathophysiology of multiple sclerosis (MS). Peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL) thinning has been suggested as an ocular biomarker of neurodegeneration in MS. The goal of this project was to determine the birefringence of the pRNFL by measuring the fiber birefringence using polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT). Methods Sixty-six MS patients without history of optic neuritis (age: 39.911.0 ...

    6. Optical coherence tomography for ocular surface and corneal diseases: a review

      Optical coherence tomography for ocular surface and corneal diseases: a review
      The advent of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging has changed the way ophthalmologists image the ocular surface and anterior segment of the eye. Its ability to obtain dynamic, high and ultra-high resolution, cross-sectional images of the ocular surface and anterior segment in a noninvasive and rapid manner allows for ease of use. In this review, we focus on the use of anterior segment OCT, which provides an optical biopsy or ...

    7. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Editorial: Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a relatively new, noninvasive outpatient imaging test that provides both structural and functional information about the macula and midperipheral retina. OCT-A is complementary to traditional imaging modalities, such as fundus photography, fluorescein angiography (FA), and spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Advantages of OCT-A include visualization of vascular flow signal, en face imaging, no need for dye injection, and segmentation of the posterior ...

    8. Swept-Source OCT Angiography Identifies Choroidal Neovascularization Arising From a Choroidal Nevus

      Swept-Source OCT Angiography Identifies Choroidal Neovascularization Arising From a Choroidal Nevus
      Swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) was used to diagnose choroidal neovascularization (CNV) arising from a choroidal nevus. A 61-year-old woman initially presented with submacular hemorrhage. She was diagnosed with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and received three injections of bevacizumab (Avastin; Genentech, South San Francisco, CA). At a follow-up visit, SS-OCTA showed that the CNV appeared to arise from an adjacent choroidal nevus. This is the first report of ...

    9. High Resolution Wide Field-of-View Optical Coherence Tomography For 3D Imaging (Thesis)

      High Resolution Wide Field-of-View Optical Coherence Tomography For 3D Imaging (Thesis)
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive, cross-sectional, and three-dimensional (3D) tomographic imaging modality. It offers subsurface deeper penetration depth and larger scan area than confocal microscopy as well as higher resolution than ultrasound imaging, very suitable for 3D in vivo imaging of eyes, skins, blood vessels, and other non-biomedical samples. However, there is a trade-off problem among lateral resolution, lateral field of view (FOV), and axial imaging depth, limiting ...

    11. The Use of Optical Coherence Tomography for the Detection of Early Diabetic Retinopathy

      The Use of Optical Coherence Tomography for the Detection of Early Diabetic Retinopathy
      Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the leading causes of vision loss globally with a severe burden on all societies due to its high treatment and rehabilitation costs. The early diagnosis of DR may provide preventive steps (including retinal laser therapy and tight carbohydrate, blood pressure, and cholesterol control) that could in turn help to avoid progression of the pathology with the resultant vision loss. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables ...
