Semi-manual Vessel Density Analysis on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Images of Healthy Adults

2018-07-24 12:38:13 | BioPortfolio


Purpose of the study is to examine the vessel density of healthy adults' optical coherence tomography angiography images with two semi-manual methods and an automated quantification program.


Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a software upgrade on conventional spectral-domain or swept-source optical coherence tomography devices that enables non-invasive, dye-free, three dimensional analysis of the retinal vessels.

Vessel density is a very important parameter almost in all retinal disorders. In the recent past, automated quantification software was built into some OCTA devices which can automatically calculate the retinal vessel density as well.

In this study two semi-manual techniques are used in order to analyze the vessel density of healthy subjects' OCTA images. Vessel density is also measured with a new automated quantification program, and results of the three methods are compared.

OCT machines are approved in the EU and the US and are not experimental devices.

The device used in this study is the commercially available Zeiss Cirrus HD OCT Angioplex 5000 that operates with spectral-domain technology.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An imaging method using LASERS that is used for mapping subsurface structure. When a reflective site in the sample is at the same optical path length (coherence) as the reference mirror, the detector observes interference fringes.

A non-invasive method that uses a CT scanner for capturing images of blood vessels and tissues. A CONTRAST MATERIAL is injected, which helps produce detailed images that aid in diagnosing VASCULAR DISEASES.

The use of light interaction (scattering, absorption, and fluorescence) with biological tissue to obtain morphologically based information. It includes measuring inherent tissue optical properties such as scattering, absorption, and autofluorescence; or optical properties of exogenous targeted fluorescent molecular probes such as those used in optical MOLECULAR IMAGING, or nontargeted optical CONTRAST AGENTS.

Non-invasive method of vascular imaging and determination of internal anatomy without injection of contrast media or radiation exposure. The technique is used especially in CEREBRAL ANGIOGRAPHY as well as for studies of other vascular structures.
