    5. Simultaneous multi-spatial scanning optical coherence tomography (OCT) based on spectrum-slicing of a broadband source

      Simultaneous multi-spatial scanning optical coherence tomography (OCT) based on spectrum-slicing of a broadband source
      This paper reports on the characterization of a novel multi-channel Optical Coherence Tomography (MC-OCT) method capable of concurrent scanning at multiple sites along the sample arm length of a low coherence interferometer. For this study, a cascade of two wavelength-based beam splitters is used to split the sample arm beam into three channels, forming three imaging (sensing) units. Channel-specific free-space beam paths are introduced in the sample arm to ensure ...

    6. Robust deep learning method for choroidal vessel segmentation on swept source optical coherence tomography images

      Robust deep learning method for choroidal vessel segmentation on swept source optical coherence tomography images
      Accurate choroidal vessel segmentation with swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) images provide unprecedented quantitative analysis towards the understanding of choroid-related diseases. Motivated by the leading segmentation performance in medical images from the use of deep learning methods, in this study, we proposed the adoption of a deep learning method, RefineNet, to segment the choroidal vessels from SS-OCT images. We quantitatively evaluated the RefineNet on 40 SS-OCT images consisting of ~3 ...

    7. Covering our tracks – optical coherence tomography to assess vascular healing

      Covering our tracks – optical coherence tomography to assess vascular healing
      Over the better part of two decades, lessons learned from stent failure have led to technical advances that have resulted in current-generation metallic drug-eluting stents (DES) with very low rates of target lesion failure (TLF) and stent thrombosis 1 . Continued efforts have been directed at achieving iterative improvements in the design of DES to enhance adaptive vascular healing following vascular injury. By promoting early strut coverage with minimal neointimal hyperplasia ...

    8. Posterior Choroidal Stroma Reduces Accuracy of Automated Segmentation of Outer Choroidal Boundary in Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography

      Posterior Choroidal Stroma Reduces Accuracy of Automated Segmentation of Outer Choroidal Boundary in Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose : To determine the influence of choroidal boundary morphology on the accuracy of automated measurements of subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) in swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT). Methods : A retrospective image analysis of foveal-centered horizontal line scans from normal and diseased eyes using the Topcon DRI OCT-1 Atlantis SSOCT was conducted. Subfoveal choroid-scleral junction (CSJ) and retina-choroidal junction (RCJ) morphologies were graded by two observers. Automated SFCT (A-SFCT) was compared ...

    9. DRUNET: a dilated-residual U-Net deep learning network to segment optic nerve head tissues in optical coherence tomography images

      DRUNET: a dilated-residual U-Net deep learning network to segment optic nerve head tissues in optical coherence tomography images
      Given that the neural and connective tissues of the optic nerve head (ONH) exhibit complex morphological changes with the development and progression of glaucoma, their simultaneous isolation from optical coherence tomography (OCT) images may be of great interest for the clinical diagnosis and management of this pathology. A deep learning algorithm (custom U-NET) was designed and trained to segment 6 ONH tissue layers by capturing both the local (tissue texture ...

      Given that the neural and connective tissues of the optic nerve head (ONH) exhibit complex morphological changes with the development and progression of glaucoma, their simultaneous isolation from optical coherence tomography (OCT) images may be of great interest for the clinical diagnosis and management of this pathology. A deep learning algorithm was designed and trained to digitally stain (i.e. highlight) 6 ONH tissue layers by capturing both the local ...

      Comparing optical coherence tomography findings in different aetiologies of infectious necrotising retinitis
      Abstract Aims To compare optical coherence tomography (OCT) features of active necrotising infectious retinitis (NIR) due to toxoplasmosis or herpesviruses and to determine distinctive OCT signs for these two causes of infectious retinitis. Methods OCT scans from eyes with active NIR due to varicella zoster virus (VZV), herpes simplex virus (HSV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), and toxoplasmosis (TOXO) were reviewed. All images were evaluated for the presence of previously described OCT findings ...

      Clinical Significance of Lipid-Rich Plaque Detected by Optical Coherence Tomography : A 4-Year Follow-Up Study
      Background Lipid-rich plaque (LRP) is thought to be a precursor to cardiac events. However, its clinical significance in coronary arteries has never been systematically investigated. Objectives This study investigated the prevalence and clinical significance of LRP in the nonculprit region of the target vessel in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

      Feature Of The Week 05/28/2017: In Vivo 3-Dimensional Strain Mapping Confirms Large Optic Nerve Head Deformations Following Horizontal Eye Movements
      Glaucoma is characterized by an irreversible damage of retinal ganglion cells within the optic nerve head (ONH) at the back of the eye. Currently we know that elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) is associated with increased prevalence of glaucoma but not all glaucoma patients have an elevated IOP. The biomechanical theory of glaucoma hypothesizes that elevated (or fluctuating) IOP deforms the ONH tissues, including the lamina cribrosa (LC), and that these ...
