    3. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Macular Telangiectasia Type 2 with Associated Subretinal Neovascular Membrane

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Macular Telangiectasia Type 2 with Associated Subretinal Neovascular Membrane
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a recently established noninvasive technology for evaluation of the retinal and choroidal vasculature. The literature regarding the findings in macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel2) is scarce. We report the OCTA findings associated with a subject with MacTel2 and secondary subretinal neovascularization (SNV). The commercially available Cirrus 5000 with AngioPlex (Zeiss, Jena, Germany) was used, without any subsequent image modification or processing. Subretinal neovascularization was ...

    4. Optical Coherence Tomography for Assessment of Epithelialization in a Human Ex Vivo Wound Model

      Optical Coherence Tomography for Assessment of Epithelialization in a Human Ex Vivo Wound Model
      The ex vivo human skin wound model is a widely accepted model to study wound epithelialization. Due to a lack of animal models that fully replicate human conditions, the ex vivo model is a valuable tool to study mechanisms of wound re-epithelialization, as well as for pre-clinical testing of novel therapeutics. The current standard for assessment of wound healing in this model is histomorphometric analysis, which is labor intensive, time ...

    5. Spending Money to Save Money on Patient Care—The Development of Ocular Coherence Tomography

      Spending Money to Save Money on Patient Care—The Development of Ocular Coherence Tomography
      The rising costs of medical care affect individuals' insurance coverage, shape the medical plans offered by companies, and challenge national policymakers. Several factors drive inflation, including the development and application of potent pharmaceuticals, interventional technologies, and advanced imaging. Ophthalmology patients have benefited tremendously from the novel application of new laser technologies, improved phacoemulsification machines, advanced intraocular lenses, and minimally invasive glaucoma surgery.

    6. Estimating Public and Patient Savings From Basic Research—A Study of Optical Coherence Tomography in Managing Antiangiogenic Therapy

      Estimating Public and Patient Savings From Basic Research—A Study of Optical Coherence Tomography in Managing Antiangiogenic Therapy
      Purpose To compare patient and Medicare savings from the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in guiding therapy for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nvAMD) to the research investments made in developing OCT by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Design Observational cohort study. Methods Main outcome measures were spending by Medicare as tracked by Current Procedural Terminology codes on intravitreal injections (67028), retinal OCT ...

    7. Use of En Face Optical Coherence Tomography in a Case of Hydroxychloroquine Retinal Toxicity

      Use of En Face Optical Coherence Tomography in a Case of Hydroxychloroquine Retinal Toxicity
      Abstract Purpose: To describe the case of 49-year-old woman with a history of rheumatoid arthritis on hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) therapy, who presented with findings of HCQ retinopathy on optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods: Evaluation included clinical examination with multimodal imaging findings on spectral domain (SD)-OCT, en face OCT, and multifocal electroretinogram (mfERG). Results: The patient had nonspecific visual symptoms and an unremarkable funduscopic examination. Humphrey visual fields, fundus autofluorescence, mfERG ...

    8. Complex signal-based optical coherence tomography angiography enables in vivo visualization of choriocapillaris in human choroid

      Complex signal-based optical coherence tomography angiography enables in vivo visualization of choriocapillaris in human choroid
      The choriocapillaris (CC) plays an essential role in maintaining the normal functions of the human eye. There is increasing interest in the community to develop an imaging technique for visualizing the CC, yet this remains underexplored due to technical limitations. We propose an approach for the visualization of the CC in humans via a complex signal-based optical microangiography (OMAG) algorithm, based on commercially available spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT ...

    9. A Radio Podcast from New Retina Radio on OCT and Anti-VEGF, A Biography

      A Radio Podcast from New Retina Radio on OCT and Anti-VEGF, A Biography
      The guidance of Anti-VEGF therapy using OCT is one of the major drivers of Ophthalmic OCT use benefiting millions of people worldwide facing age related macular degeneration. This link is from New Retina Radio and continues its biography of anti-VEGF. John D. Pitcher III, MD, picks up the story where we left off: in a world where pegaptanib was the only intravitreal injection approved for treating wet AMD. But a ...

    10. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Punctate Inner Choroidopathy

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Punctate Inner Choroidopathy
      Purpose . To report a case of bilateral choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) visualized utilizing optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). Methods . Case report. Results . A 29-year-old woman presented with new visual symptoms in both eyes. Fundoscopic exam revealed bilateral multifocal, small, well-defined lesions consistent with PIC. Optical coherence tomography demonstrated subretinal fluid and retinal pigment epithelium detachments (RPEDs) in both eyes. OCT-A revealed bilateral abnormal increased flow within ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Macular and Peripapillary Vessel Perfusion Density in Healthy Subjects, Glaucoma Suspects, and Glaucoma Patients
      Purpose : To evaluate macular and peripapillary vessel perfusion density (VD) in glaucoma suspects (GS) and glaucoma patients; to correlate ganglion cellinner plexiform layer (GCIPL) and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thicknesses with macular and peripapillary VD; and to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the structural and vascular parameters. Methods : A consecutive series of GS, glaucoma patients, and healthy subjects was prospectively recruited from July 1, 2016, to January 31, 2017 ...

    12. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Two Choroidal Nevi Variants

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Two Choroidal Nevi Variants
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a recently established noninvasive technology for evaluation of the retinal and choroidal vasculature. The literature regarding the findings in choroidal nevi is scarce. We report the OCT-A findings associated with two different variants. Subject one had decreased vascular flow signal in the choroidal, choriocapillaris, deep retinal, and superficial retinal layers. Subject two had decreased vascular flow signal in the choroidal, choriocapillaris, and deep retinal ...

    13. Improving lateral resolution and image quality of optical coherence tomography by the multi-frame superresolution technique for 3D tissue imaging

      Improving lateral resolution and image quality of optical coherence tomography by the multi-frame superresolution technique for 3D tissue imaging
      The multi-frame superresolution technique is introduced to significantly improve the lateral resolution and image quality of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Using several sets of low resolution C-scan 3D images with lateral sub-spot-spacing shifts on different sets, the multi-frame superresolution processing of these sets at each depth layer reconstructs a higher resolution and quality lateral image. Layer by layer processing yields an overall high lateral resolution and quality 3D ...
