    2. Optical coherence tomography as a means to characterize visual pathway involvement in multiple sclerosis

      Optical coherence tomography as a means to characterize visual pathway involvement in multiple sclerosis
      Purpose of review Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive in-vivo imaging tool that enables the quantification of the various retinal layer thicknesses. Given the frequent involvement of the visual pathway in multiple sclerosis , OCT has become an important tool in clinical practice, research and clinical trials. In this review, the role of OCT as a means to investigate visual pathway damage in multiple sclerosis is discussed. Recent findings Evidence ...

    3. THREE-DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS OF SUBMACULAR PERFORATING SCLERAL VESSELS BY ENHANCED DEPTH IMAGING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY

      THREE-DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS OF SUBMACULAR PERFORATING SCLERAL VESSELS BY ENHANCED DEPTH IMAGING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY
      Purpose: To analyze submacular perforating scleral vessels (PSVs) using enhanced depth imaging spectral domain optical coherence tomography (EDI-SDOCT). Methods: Twenty-two eyes of 11 healthy women were included in this retrospective study. Central EDI-SDOCT scans (3 x 4.5 x 1.9 mm, 13.5 mm2 scan area) were acquired and postprocessed by denoising, manual sclera segmentation, and PSV investigated by five graders. Results: Mean age was 22.4 +/- 6.2 ...

    4. Optical Coherence Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Multiple Sclerosis and Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder

      Optical Coherence Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Multiple Sclerosis and Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder
      Irreversible disability in multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) is largely attributed to neuronal and axonal degeneration, which, along with inflammation, is one of the major pathological hallmarks of these diseases. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging tool that has been used in MS, NMOSD, and other diseases to quantify damage to the retina, including the ganglion cells and their axons. The fact that these ...

    5. Choroidal Findings in Eyes With Birdshot Chorioretinitis Using Enhanced-Depth Optical Coherence Tomography

      Choroidal Findings in Eyes With Birdshot Chorioretinitis Using Enhanced-Depth Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose : The purposes of this study were to describe choroidal findings observed using optical coherence tomography with enhanced depth imaging (EDI-OCT) in eyes with birdshot chorioretinitis (BSCR) and to test the hypothesis that these findings are related to participant demographics, clinical characteristics, and treatment. Methods : In a multicenter, cross-sectional study, 172 eyes of 86 individuals with BSCR underwent a standardized clinical evaluation, including defined protocols for EDI-OCT imaging, with macular ...

    6. A signal separation technique for sub-cellular imaging using dynamic optical coherence tomography

      A signal separation technique for sub-cellular imaging using dynamic optical coherence tomography
      This paper aims at imaging the dynamics of metabolic activity of cells. Using dynamic optical coherence tomography, we introduce a new multiparticle dynamical model to simulate the movements of the collagen and the cell metabolic activity and develop an efficient signal separation technique for sub-cellular imaging. We perform a singular-value decomposition of the dynamic optical images to isolate the intensity of the metabolic activity. We prove that the largest eigenvalue ...

    7. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of the Foveal Avascular Zone in Retinal Vein Occlusion

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of the Foveal Avascular Zone in Retinal Vein Occlusion
      Purpose: The aim of the study was to visualize and to quantify pathological foveal avascular zone (FAZ) alterations through optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) in eyes with retinal vein occlusion (RVO) in comparison to the unaffected fellow eyes. Procedures: OCT-A was conducted with the Avanti RTVue 100 XR system (Optovue Inc., Fremont, Calif., USA). The borders of the superficial vascular layer (SVL) were defined as 3 m below the internal ...

    8. Optical Coherence Tomography in Multiple Sclerosis

      Optical Coherence Tomography in Multiple Sclerosis
      Retinal optical coherence tomography (OCT) has recently become a vital tool for clinicians and researchers in ophthalmology and, increasingly, in neurology. Optical coherence tomography is quickly and easily performed, well-tolerated by patients, and allows high-resolution viewing of unmyelinated axons and other retinal structures in vivo. These factors have led OCT to find favor as a method of quantifying neuroaxonal loss in multiple sclerosis (MS), and the increasing acceptance of the ...

    9. Retinal thickness measured with optical coherence tomography and risk of disability worsening in multiple sclerosis: a cohort study

      Retinal thickness measured with optical coherence tomography and risk of disability worsening in multiple sclerosis: a cohort study
      Background Most patients with multiple sclerosis without previous optic neuritis have thinner retinal layers than healthy controls. We assessed the role of peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (pRNFL) thickness and macular volume in eyes with no history of optic neuritis as a biomarker of disability worsening in a cohort of patients with multiple sclerosis who had at least one eye without optic neuritis available. Methods In this multicentre, cohort study ...

    10. Clinical Experience With the First Commercially Available Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography System

      Clinical Experience With the First Commercially Available Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography System
      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: A retrospective, single-center case-series was initiated to evaluate initial clinical experience with the first commercially available intraoperative optical coherence tomography system (iOCT). PATIENTS AND METHODS: The Rescan 700 iOCT (Zeiss, Oberkochen, Germany), a spectral-domain OCT system integrated into a surgical microscope, was used in 40 consecutive cases. A standardized review was used to assess whether iOCT imaging resulted in additional information and/or altered decision-making. RESULTS: The ...

    11. Optical coherence tomography angiography of the foveal avascular zone in diabetic retinopathy

      Optical coherence tomography angiography of the foveal avascular zone in diabetic retinopathy
      Purpose To analyze foveal avascular zone (FAZ) dimensions and symmetry in patients with diabetic retinopathy (DR) compared to healthy controls using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT angiography). Methods OCT angiography was performed via an Avanti RTVue 100 XR OCT system (Optovue, Inc., Fremont, CA, USA) in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and healthy adults. A frame centered on the fovea was used for FAZ measurements. The borders of the superficial ...

      Aim To examine the literature on novel digital imaging techniques for the assessment of outcomes in oral rehabilitation with dental implants. Material and methods An electronic search of Medline and Embase databases including studies published prior to 28th December 2014 was performed and supplemented by a manual search. A synthesis of the publications was presented describing the use of computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasonography, optical scanning, spectrophotometry ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography Opens a New Era in the Afferent Visual System Evaluation
      For decades, thinning of the retinal nerve fiber layer in optic neuropathy could only be observed ophthalmoscopically or using red-free fundus photography. These days are over. Subsequently, different techniques to image the optic nerve and the retina have been developed. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has gained the most attention and has opened a new area of revolutionary diagnostic possibilities. OCT is a noncontact diagnostic imaging technique that provides detailed, cross-sectional ...
