A normative database of wide-field swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography quantitative metrics in a large cohort of healthy adults

, , , , , , , , ,

Purpose Data from healthy eyes is needed to interpret optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) findings. However, very little normative data is available for wide-field swept-source OCTA (WF SS-OCTA), particularly 12 × 12-mm and disc-centered angiograms. Therefore, we aim to report quantitative metrics in a large sample of control eyes. Methods In this cross-sectional observational study, 482 eyes of 375 healthy adults were imaged on the 100 kHz Zeiss PLEX® Elite 9000 using protocols centered on the fovea (3 × 3, 6 × 6, and 12 × 12-mm) and optic disc (6 × 6 and 12 × 12-mm) between December 2018 and January 2022. The ARI Network (Zeiss Portal v5.4) was used to calculate vessel density (VD) and vessel skeletonized density (VSD) in the superficial capillary plexus, deep capillary plexus, and whole retina, as well as foveal avascular zone (FAZ) parameters. Mixed-effect multiple linear regression models were used for statistical analysis. Results The subjects’ m...

Auto-Processed Retinal Vessel Shadow View Images From Bedside Optical Coherence Tomography to Evaluate Plus Disease in Retinopathy of Prematurity

Abstract Purpose : To describe the creation of en face retinal vessel shadow view (RVSV) optical coherence tomography (OCT) images and assess the feasibility of using these for evaluating vascular disease in preterm infants at risk for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Methods : In this exploratory study, we selected images from eyes with a range of ROP vascular disease, prospectively acquired from preterm infants using an investigational, noncontact, handheld, bedside swept-source OCT. We autosegmented OCT volumes using custom infant-specific software, extracted RVSV-OCT images from volumetric data bracketed around the retinal pigment epithelium, and automontaged the resulting RVSV-OCT images. Three masked ophthalmologists graded the RVSV-OCT montages as plus, pre-plus, or neither and ranked them by relative vascular disease severity. Results : We selected images from 17 imaging sessions (7 plus, 4 pre-plus, 6 neither on clinical examination). On review, 15/17 (88%) RVSV-OCT montag...
