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)
The present retrospective study compared initial visual symptom patterns in inherited retinal dystrophies (IRD) on the basis of records of 544 patients diagnosed with a wide variety of IRD at the Tuebingen University Eye Hospital from 2005 to 2008. Age at first onset of symptoms was noted, and the following clinical data were analyzed: visual acuity (VA),(More)
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)
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)
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)
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)
