PURPOSE To assess the correlation between retinal morphology and function in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), fundus autofluorescence imaging (FAF), and fundus-related perimetry and to use coregistration of data sets to achieve high-resolution structure-function correlation of human macula.(More)
BACKGROUND The impact of retinal pathology detected by high-resolution imaging on vision remains largely unexplored. Therefore, the aim of the study was to achieve high-resolution structure-function correlation of the human macula in vivo. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS To obtain high-resolution tomographic and topographic images of the macula(More)
PURPOSE Retinal blood vessel diameter and arteriovenous ratio (AVR) are commonly used diagnostic parameters. Because vascular walls are typically not visible in funduscopy, clinical AVR estimation is based on the lumen rather than the entire vessel diameter. Here the authors used a transgenic mouse model to quantify AVR in vivo based on total vessel(More)
Various morphological and functional techniques for retina examination have been established in the recent years. Although many examination results are spatially resolved and can be mapped onto data originating from other modalities, usually only data from one modality is analyzed by a clinician at a time. This is mainly because there is no software(More)
Non-invasive optical methods that enable in vivo or in situ visualization of tissue components are of particular relevance in ophthalmology, as they can provide key information about the relationship between the structure and function of the visual system. In this paper we present a semiautomated multimodal imaging tool for co-registration of images of(More)
PURPOSE To study clinical patterns of disease onset in monogenic retinal dystrophies (MRD), using an epidemiological approach. METHODS Records of patients with MRD, seen at the University Eye Hospital Tuebingen from 1994 to 1999, were selected from a database and retrospectively reviewed. For analysis, patients were divided into 2 groups by predominant(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the study was to evaluate longitudinal visual acuity (VA) changes in cone (CD) and cone-rod dystrophies (CRD) in order to develop recommendations for follow-up strategies and to define an optimal time for potential therapeutic intervention. METHODS Patients with clinically defined CD and CRD, who had at least three clinical(More)
The study aim was to analyze the electrophysiological signs of inherited retinal dystrophies (IRD). Full-field and multifocal (mf) electroretinography (ERG) was analysed in three groups: 21 normal subjects, 21 randomly selected IRD patients, and 21 patients randomly selected from each of eleven IRD groups. As a result, median, 5-95 and 25-75 interquantile(More)
