*  OSA | Spectroscopic phase-dispersion optical coherence tomography measurements of scattering phantoms
We demonstrate a novel technique to determine the size of Mie scatterers with high sensitivity. Our technique is based on spectral domain optical coherence tomography measurements of the phase dispersion that is induced by the scattering process. We use both Mie scattering predictions and dispersion measurements of phantoms to show that the scattering dispersion is very sensitive to small changes in the size and/or refractive index of the scatterer. We also show the light scattered from a single sphere is, in some cases, non-minimum phase. Therefore, the phase is independent of the intensity of the scattered light, and both intensity and phase must be measured directly in order to characterize more completely the scattering problem. Phase dispersion measurements may have application to distinguishing the size and refractive index of scattering particles in biological tissue samples.. ©2006 Optical Society of America.

*  A randomized optical coherence tomography study of coronary stent strut coverage and luminal protrusion with rapamycin-eluting...
OBJECTIVES: We used optical coherence tomography, which has a resolution of |20 microm, to analyze thin layers of neointima in rapamycin-eluting coronary stents. BACKGROUND: Lack of neointimal coverage has been implicated in the pathogenesis of drug-eluting coronary stent thrombosis. Angiography and intracoronary ultrasound lack the resolution to examine this. METHODS: We conducted a randomized trial in patients receiving polymer-coated rapamycin-eluting stents (Cypher, Cordis, Johnson & Johnson, Miami, Florida) and nonpolymer rapamycin-eluting stents (Yukon, Translumina, Hechingen, Germany) to examine neointimal thickness, stent strut coverage, and protrusion at 90 days. Twenty-four patients (n = 12 for each group) underwent stent deployment and invasive follow-up at 90 days with optical coherence tomography. The primary end point was binary stent strut coverage. Coprimary end points were neointimal ...

We describe a bidirectional color Doppler Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography system capable of measuring absolute velocities of moving scatterers by illuminating the sample with two linearly and orthogonally polarized beams, incident at a known angle on the sample. The velocity calculation is independent of the exact orientation of the velocity vector in the detection plane. First measurements were performed on a rotating disk driven at well-defined velocities and tilted by various small angles. Our results indicate a high correlation between preset and calculated velocities (correlation coefficient 0.999) and the independency of these velocities from the tilting angle of the disk. We demonstrate that bidirectional color Doppler optical coherence tomography allows for the measurement of absolute blood flow values in vivo in human retinal vessels.. © 2008 Optical Society of America. ...

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to cluster the test points of the combined 24-2 and 10-2 visual fields (VFs) and circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (cpRNFLT) sectors using explanatory factor analyses (EFAs). The correlations between the VF clusters and cpRNFLT clusters were determined, and a new function-structure relationship map was determined. Methods: Two hundred fifty-four eyes of 166 subjects (13 normal eyes and 241 eyes with glaucoma) were studied retrospectively. All eyes had an axial length ,27 mm and had undergone 24-2 and 10-2 VF tests using the Swedish Interactive Threshold Algorithm (SITA-standard) and cpRNFLT examinations by spectral domain optical coherence tomography within a 3-month period. Explanatory factor analysis was performed to group the 116 test points of the combined 24-2/10-2 VF test grids into a smaller number of VF clusters. Another EFA was performed to cluster the 24 cpRNFLT sectors. The correlations ...

We demonstrate ultralong-range swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging using vertical cavity surface emitting laser technology. The ability to adjust laser parameters and high-speed acquisition enables imaging ranges from a few centimeters up to meters using the same instrument. We discuss the challenges of long-range OCT imaging. In vivo human-eye imaging and optical component characterization are presented. The precision and accuracy of OCT-based measurements are assessed and are important for ocular biometry and reproducible intraocular distance measurement before cataract surgery. Additionally, meter-range measurement of fiber length and multicentimeter-range imaging are reported. 3D visualization supports a class of industrial imaging applications of OCT.. © 2013 Optical Society of America.

Purpose To evaluate the intrasession reproducibility of various thickness parameters used to diagnose and follow-up glaucoma, in particular circumpapillary total retinal thickness (cpTR) provided by the RS-3000 optical coherence tomograph (OCT). Methods Fifty-three healthy eyes of 28 subjects underwent three consecutive imaging with the RS-3000 Advance OCT (NIDEK, Aichi,Japan) to evaluate the intrasession reproducibility of circumpapillary total retinal thickness (cpTR), circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (cpRNFL), macular ganglion cell complex thickness (mGCC) and macular total retina thickness (mTR) measurements. Intraclass correlation (ICC), coefficient of variation (CV) and reproducibility coefficient (RC) were calculated for each parameter. Results The ICC and CV values for mean cpTR and cpRNFL were 0.987 and 0.897, and 0.60% and 2.81%, respectively. The RC values for the mean cpTR and cpRNFL were 5.95 μm and 9.04 μm, respectively.

*  OSA | Simultaneous swept source optical coherence tomography of the anterior segment and retina using coherence revival
We report on an implementation of coherence revival-based heterodyne swept source optical coherence tomography that is capable of simultaneously imaging the anterior and posterior eye. A polarization-encoded sample arm was used to efficiently focus orthogonal polarizations on the anterior segment and retina. Depth encoding was achieved using coherence revival, which allows for multiple depths within a sample to be simultaneously imaged and frequency encoded by carefully controlling the optical pathlength of each sample path. This design is a significant step toward whole-eye optical coherence tomography (OCT), which would enable customized ray-traced modeling of patient eyes to improve refractive surgical interventions and eliminate optical artifacts in retinal OCT diagnostics. We demonstrated the feasibility of this system for in vivo ...

*  The Feasibility of Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Grading of Anterior Chamber Inflammation in a Rabbit Model of...
Anterior chamber inflammation is currently measured and graded by clinical examination using slit-lamp biomicroscopy and the SUN scale. This approach is considered the gold-standard for clinical diagnosis, where aqueous sampling cannot be easily obtained. This study investigates an alternative method for grading inflammatory cells within the anterior chamber using SD-OCT, a technology already being used in clinical settings. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography allows for the noninvasive capture of cross-sectional image frames where cells can be visualized as reflective spots. Our data show that SD-OCT counts correlated with aqueous cell counts better than the correlation between SUN grading and aqueous cell counts. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography has known limitations, however. The axial resolution of SD-OCT is approximately 5 μm, and the transverse resolution is approximately 20 μm. ...
