    2. Optical Coherence Tomography and Coronary Dissection: Precious Tool or Useless Surplus?

      Optical Coherence Tomography and Coronary Dissection: Precious Tool or Useless Surplus?
      Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare clinical condition, but frequently manifested as acute myocardial infarction. In this particular setting, in recent years, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been established as a possible diagnostic method due to the high spatial resolution (10-20 m), which can visualize the different layers of coronary vessels. OCT can better analyze the "binary" or double lumen morphology, typical of this entity. Furthermore, it can ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography as retinal imaging biomarker of neuroinflammation/neurodegeneration in systemic disorders in adults and children

      Optical coherence tomography as retinal imaging biomarker of neuroinflammation/neurodegeneration in systemic disorders in adults and children
      The retina and the optic nerve are considered extensions of the central nervous system (CNS) and thus can serve as the window for evaluation of CNS disorders. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) allows for detailed evaluation of the retina and the optic nerve. OCT can non-invasively document changes in single retina layer thickness and structure due to neuronal and retinal glial cells (RGC) modifications in systemic and local inflammatory ...

    8. Does real-time artificial intelligence-based visual pathology enhancement of three-dimensional optical coherence tomography scans optimise treatment decision in patients with nAMD? Rationale and design of the RAZORBILL study

      Does real-time artificial intelligence-based visual pathology enhancement of three-dimensional optical coherence tomography scans optimise treatment decision in patients with nAMD? Rationale and design of the RAZORBILL study
      Background/rationale Artificial intelligence (AI)-based clinical decision support tools, being developed across multiple fields in medicine, need to be evaluated for their impact on the treatment and outcomes of patients as well as optimisation of the clinical workflow. The RAZORBILL study will investigate the impact of advanced AI segmentation algorithms on the disease activity assessment in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) by enriching three-dimensional (3D) retinal optical ...

    9. Optical coherence tomography angiography application to pigmented iris: Could a new index quantify blood flow?

      Optical coherence tomography angiography application to pigmented iris: Could a new index quantify blood flow?
      Purpose: To assess the blood flow and vascular visibility of irises in relation to pigmentation and pupil size, using an anterior segment optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Materials and methods: This is a cross-sectional study. OCTA images were acquired in the nasal and temporal quadrants from a cohort of 30 healthy subjects in photopic (miosis) and scotopic (mydriasis) conditions. Patients were divided according to iris color (less pigmented: group L ...

    10. An en face swept source optical coherence tomography study of the vitreous in eyes with anterior uveitis

      An en face swept source optical coherence tomography study of the vitreous in eyes with anterior uveitis
      Purpose: To analyse vitreous anatomy patients with anterior uveitis (AU) using swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT).

    12. Can deep learning improve the automatic segmentation of deep foveal avascular zone in optical coherence tomography angiography

      Can deep learning improve the automatic segmentation of deep foveal avascular zone in optical coherence tomography angiography
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is extensively used for visualizing retinal vasculature, including the foveal avascular zone (FAZ). Assessment of the FAZ is critical in the diagnosis and management of various retinal diseases. Accurately segmenting the FAZ in the deep retinal layer (dFAZ) is very challenging due to unclear capillary terminals. In this study, a customized encoder-decoder deep learning network was used for dFAZ segmentation. Six-fold cross-validation was performed on ...

    14. Retinal applications of swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA)

      Retinal applications of swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA)
      The advent of optical coherence tomography (OCT) revolutionized both clinical assessment and research of vitreoretinal conditions. Since then, extraordinary advances have been made in this imaging technology, including the relatively recent development of swept-source OCT (SS-OCT). SS-OCT enables a fast scan rate and utilizes a tunable swept laser at longer wavelengths than conventional spectral-domain devices. These features enable imaging of larger areas with reduced motion artifact, and a better visualization ...

    16. Evaluation of the inner choroid using OCT angiography

      Evaluation of the inner choroid using OCT angiography
      The advent of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has allowed a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the retinal vasculature and the choriocapillaris. With the use of OCTA, several studies evaluated the changes in the choriocapillaris showing how this vascular structure plays a significant role in the pathogenesis of different conditions. This article reviews the current methods of analysis of the choriocapillaris and the relevant findings in different chorioretinal diseases.
