Background The purpose of this study is to evaluate the retinal and choroidal thickness of the macular region in patients with unilateral relentless placoid chorioretinitis (RPC) and macular involvement. Patients diagnosed with RPC affecting only one eye underwent a comprehensive ophthalmologic examination including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), axial length (AL) measurement, slit-lamp examination, and color fundus and autofluorescence photography. The macular region was scanned by swept-source optical coherence tomography in the 1,050-nm wavelength. Automated segmentations of the retina and the choroid were used to obtain the corresponding thickness values.

To investigate the choroidal morphologic changes in two patients with posterior scleritis. We used high-penetration optical coherence tomography (HP-OCT) in vivo with a long-wavelength light source (1,060 nm) to view the choroidal changes. In patient 1 with unilateral scleritis, the subfoveal choroidal thickness of the right eye was 418 μm with a serous retinal detachment (SRD) at the initial visit. The treatment regimen was prednisolone 30 mg/day, and the posterior scleritis resolved. Follow-up...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the change in subfoveal choroidal thickness between active and quiescent phases of Behcet's posterior uveitis and compare this with the healthy population using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT). METHODS: Thirty eyes from 30 patients with Behcet's posterior uveitis (mean age, 47.03 ± 11.01 years) were retrospectively enrolled in the study. Their subfoveal choroidal thickness was measured using EDI-OCT in the active and quiescent phases of Behcet's...

Purpose:Optical coherence tomography (OCT) using enhanced depth imaging (EDI) allows evaluation of choroidal thickness. Our objective was to analyze subfoveal choroidal thickness by EDI-OCT before and after the initiation of high-dose corticosteroid treatment in 8 patients (16 eyes) with new-onset a

PURPOSE. To study the choroidal thickness in healthy subjects by swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) at longer wavelength. METHODS. The macular area of 31 eyes (31 healthy volunteers) was studied with an SS-OCT prototype system, which uses a tunable laser as a light source operated at 100,000 Hz A scan repetition rate in the 1-m wavelength region. Three-dimensional volumetric measurement comprised of 512 128 A scans was acquired in 0.8 second. From a series of OCT images, a chroid...

For the first time in vivo retinal imaging has been performed with a new compact, low noise Yb-based ASE source operating in the 1 µm range (NP Photonics, λc=1040 nm, Δλ=50 nm, Pout=30 mW) at the dispersion minimum of water with ~7 µm axial resolution. OCT tomograms acquired at 800 nm are compared to those achieved at 1040 nm showing about 200 µm deeper penetration into the choroid below the retinal pigment epithelium. Retinal OCT at longer wavelengths significantly improves the visualization of...

We present theoretical and experimental results which demonstrate the superior sensitivity of swept source (SS) and Fourier domain (FD) optical coherence tomography (OCT) techniques over the conventional time domain (TD) approach. We show that SS- and FD-OCT have equivalent expressions for system signal-to-noise ratio which result in a typical sensitivity advantage of 20-30dB over TD-OCT. Experimental verification is provided using two novel spectral discrimination (SD) OCT systems: a differenti...

Objective: To characterize an unusual clinical entity resembling acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) and serpiginous choroiditis but with an atypical clinical course. Patients: We describe 6 patients, aged 17 through 51 years, exhibiting this unusual entity who were seen at 6 different centers from 1984 to 1997. Results: The acute retinal lesions in this series were similar to those of APMPPE or serpiginous choroiditis, both clinically and on fluorescein and indocy...

Before the introduction of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in the early 2000s, dye-based angiography was considered the “gold standard” for the diagnosis and monitoring of ocular inflammation. OCTA is a novel technique, which demonstrates capillary networks based on the amount of light returned from moving blood cells, providing further information on pathophysiological changes in uveitis. The aim of this review is to describe the basic principles of OCTA and its application to o...
