PURPOSE To investigate the representation of the corneal structure with optical coherence tomography before and immediately after excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy. METHODS Twenty-four eyes of 24 patients with myopia and myopic astigmatism were prospectively studied. The corneal thickness and the corneal profile were assessed with(More)

Die kontaktfreie spaltlampenadaptierte OCT wurde zur klinischen Evaluierung von pathologisch veränderten Hornhäuten, der Vermessung der zentralen(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy, the reproducibility, and the limits of agreement of noncontact central corneal thickness measurement with slit lamp-adapted optical coherence tomography (OCT). DESIGN Nonrandomized comparative clinical trial. METHODS In a prospective comparative observational study, a total of 108(More)
To prospectively assess quality of life (QoL) in patients receiving conformal radiation therapy (CRT) for prostate cancer. 78 men with definitive CRT for prostate cancer were entered into the study. Patients were assessed before CRT, at 40 and 60 Gy, and 2, 12 and 24 months after the end of treatment. QoL was assessed using the EORTC Quality of Life(More)
· Purpose: To evaluate the diagnostic potential of a slit-lamp-adapted optical coherence tomography (OCT) system as an in vivo imaging device for routine clinical examination of the anterior segment of the eye. · Patients and methods: In a pilot study, healthy volunteers and patients with different pathologies of the anterior segment were examined with a(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate the potentials of optical coherence tomagraphy (OCT) using long wavelength to penetrate highly scattering tissues of the eye and visualize the anterior chamber angle and the ciliary body. METHODS OCT images were generated by an experimental prototype in enucleated porcine eyes using as light source a superluminiscent(More)
OBJECTIVE To present a new imaging method for the anterior segment of the eye. METHODS Transscleral optical coherence tomographic images were generated in healthy volunteers using a slitlamp-adapted prototype equipped with a superluminescence diode with an infrared wavelength of 1310 nm. RESULTS The optical coherence tomographic system used allowed(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate the potentials of a 1310-nm optical coherence tomography (OCT) system to penetrate the highly backscattering sclera in enucleated human eyes and provide visualization of intraocular structures by transscleral imaging. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS OCT-images were generated by an experimental prototype (Medical(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the imaging of corneal structures with optical coherence tomography (OCT) after implantation of intracorneal ring segments (ICRS). METHODS In an experimental study with six porcine eyes, qualitative and quantitative imaging with corneal OCT using a wavelength of 1310 nm after implantation of ICRS was performed. The optical results(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the potential of an Er:YAG laser for precise and traction-free removal of retinal layers in vitro. MATERIAL AND METHODS Retinal ablation in porcine retinal explants was performed using a free running Er:YAG laser focused either into a low-OH quartz fiber or a sapphire fiber. The explants were treated under air or(More)
