Purpose: To develop a deep learning approach to digitally stain optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of the optic nerve head (ONH). Methods: A horizontal B-scan was acquired through the center of the ONH using OCT (Spectralis) for one eye of each of 100 subjects (40 healthy and 60 glaucoma). All images were enhanced using adaptive compensation. A custom deep learning network was then designed and trained with the compensated images to digitally stain (i.e., highlight) six tissue layers of the ONH...

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) manufacturers graphically present circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (cpRNFLT) together with normative limits to support clinicians in diagnosing ophthalmic diseases. The impact of age on cpRNFLT is typically implemented by linear models. cpRNFLT is strongly location-specific, whereas previously published norms are typically restricted to coarse sectors and based on small populations. Furthermore, OCT devices neglect impacts of lens or eye size on the diameter of the cpRNFLT scan circle so that the diameter substantially varies over different eyes...

PURPOSE: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a reliable method used to quantify discrete layers of the retina. Spectralis OCT is a device used for this purpose. Spectralis OCT macular scan imaging acquisition can be obtained on either the horizontal or vertical plane. The vertical protocol has been proposed as favorable, due to postulated reduction in confound of Henle's fibers on segmentation-derived metrics. Yet, agreement of the segmentation measures of horizontal and vertical macular scans remains unexplored...

Although a lot of work has been done on optical coherence tomography and color images in order to detect and quantify diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, exudates, or neovascularizations, none of them is able to evaluate the diffusion of the neovascularizations in retinas. Our work has been to develop a tool that is able to quantify a neovascularization and the fluorescein leakage during an angiography. The proposed method has been developed following a clinical trial protocol; images are taken by a Spectralis (Heidelberg Engineering)...

BACKGROUND: Glaucoma is one of the main causes of blindness in the Western hemisphere. Because the disease often painlessly progresses it remains unnoticed until major optic nerve head damage occurs in many cases. That is why new, more sensitive diagnostic methods are needed. Bruch's membrane opening minimum rim width (BMO-MRW), measured with the new glaucoma module premium edition (GMPE) was recently introduced as a more accurate tool to detect glaucomatous changes. The purpose of this study was to assess the correlation of SPECTRALIS® spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and the GMPE anatomic positioning module (APS module) for retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) measurements...

The purpose of the current study was to investigate the association between visual function and retinal structure in central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). In 22 eyes of 22 chronic CSC patients with serous retinal detachment at the macula, retinal sensitivity was measured using MP3 microperimetry (NIDEK, Japan) and mean sensitivity within two degrees (MS2), four degrees (MS4) and six degrees (MS6), as well as foveal sensitivity (MS0), were calculated. Retinal structure was measured using optical coherence tomography (OCT, Spectralis, Heidelberg)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Alport syndrome is an inherited disease characterized by renal failure, hearing loss, and ocular abnormalities, including temporal retinal thinning. This study compared retinal thinning in Alport syndrome and other renal diseases. METHODS: Alport syndrome was diagnosed on renal biopsy and genetic testing. Subjects underwent optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Spectralis OCT, Heidelberg Instruments). Retinal thinning was determined from horizontal macular OCT scans through the foveal center using the formula: Temporal thickness index (TTI) = (nasal - temporal thickness) ÷ nasal thickness × 100%, and compared with the normal range for each age group...

PURPOSE: Gliosis-like retinal alterations, presumed to be activated retinal astrocytes and Müller cells (ARAM), have been reported to occur frequently in patients with glaucoma but rarely in controls. We investigated the association between glaucomatous abnormality and the presence, the extent of retinal region, and the spatial distribution, of hyperreflective retinal alterations on optical coherence tomography (OCT) en-face images, presumed to be ARAM. METHODS: Findings of hyperreflective structures, presumed to be ARAM, in the central retinal ±24 degrees of OCT en-face images (acquired with the SPECTRALIS(®) OCT) were compared between 35 younger controls, 42 older controls and 38 patients with glaucoma...

BACKGROUND: Although photodynamic therapy (PDT) has become the standard treatment for central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC), its mechanism of action remains unclear. It is assumed that PDT induces short-term choriocapillaris (CC) occlusion and long-term choroidal vascular remodeling. In this paper, we describe the short-term CC changes induced by Half-Dose PDT (HD-PDT) in chronic CSC using optical coherence tomography-angiography (OCTA). METHODS: This is a prospective interventional case series...

Robert Kromer, Martin Stephan Spitzer
A precise evaluation of the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) is key for diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma. The Bruch's membrane opening minimum rim width (BMO-MRW) has been proposed as a reproducible assessment of the optic nerve. The BMO-MRW measures the minimum distance from the BMO to the internal limiting membrane. We propose an approach to correct the BMO-MRW using the BMO size for increased accuracy in interindividual comparisons in future studies. Eighty-one healthy patients received SPECTRALIS spectral domain optical coherence tomography measurements for the peripapillary RNFLT and BMO-MRW...
