    3. Optical Coherence Tomography in Evaluation of Glomus Tumors: A Report of Three Cases

      Optical Coherence Tomography in Evaluation of Glomus Tumors: A Report of Three Cases
      Glomus tumors are painful, benign perivascular neoplasms of the glomus body affecting the nail apparatus. Although diagnosis can be made clinically using Love's and Hildreth's tests, imaging is required to distinguish glomus tumors from other subungual vascular lesions. Clinical diagnosis is complicated when the nail has no visible abnormalities. 1 Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the modality of choice for imaging but requires a dedicated small part coil ...

    4. Evaluation of positive patch test reactions using optical coherence tomography: A pilot study

      Evaluation of positive patch test reactions using optical coherence tomography: A pilot study
      Introduction Patch testing is the gold standard for evaluating allergic contact dermatitis (ACD), yet current interpretation methods are limited by their subjectivity and possible variability between observers. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging enables noninvasive in vivo skin visualization and holds promise as an objective method of patch test interpretation. Objective To evaluate the micromorphological changes of patch test reactions and identify objective, quantitative OCT markers that correlate with clinically graded ...

    8. Quantitative analysis of conjunctival microvasculature imaged using optical coherence tomography angiography

      Quantitative analysis of conjunctival microvasculature imaged using optical coherence tomography angiography
      Background The goal was to quantitatively analyze the bulbar conjunctival microvascular density using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and compare it to the vessel density using functional slit-lamp biomicroscopy (FSLB). Methods Temporal bulbar conjunctiva of 20 eyes (10 healthy subjects) was imaged using both OCTA and FSLB. Image processing was performed including equalization, de-noising, thresholding, and skeletonization. The vessel density was measured by fractal analysis (box counting, Dbox) and pixel ...

      Age-Dependent Changes in the Macular Choriocapillaris of Normal Eyes Imaged with Swept-Source OCT Angiography
      Purpose Swept source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) was used to measure the age-dependent changes in macular choriocapillaris (CC) flow deficits (FDs) in normal eyes. Design A prospective, cross-sectional study. Methods Subjects with normal eyes ranging in age from their 20s to their 80s were imaged using a 100-kHz SS-OCTA instrument (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec). Both 3x3 mm and 6x6 mm scans were used to image the macular ...
