PURPOSE Retinal hypoxia is a common pathological condition usually caused by ischemia that may result in alterations in oxidative energy metabolism. We report measurements of oxygen delivery by the retinal circulation (DO2_IR) and inner retinal oxygen metabolism (MO2_IR) under systemic normoxia and hypoxia in rat. METHODS Rats were ventilated with(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the study is to report global measurements of inner retinal oxygen delivery (DO2_IR) and oxygen metabolism (MO2_IR) in streptozotocin (STZ) diabetic rats. METHODS Phosphorescence lifetime and blood flow imaging were performed in rats 4 (STZ/4 wk; n = 10) and 6 (STZ/6 wk; n = 10) weeks following injection of STZ to measure retinal(More)
PURPOSE Oxygenation abnormalities are implicated in the development of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). The purpose of this study is to report in vivo retinal vascular oxygen tension (PO2) measurements and fluorescein angiography (FA) findings in the mouse model of oxygen-induced retinopathy (OIR). METHODS We exposed 19 neonatal mice to 77% oxygen from(More)
The metabolic function of inner retinal cells relies on the availability of nutrients and oxygen that are supplied by the retinal circulation. Assessment of retinal tissue vitality and function requires knowledge of both the rate of oxygen delivery and consumption. The purpose of the current study is to report a novel technique for assessment of the inner(More)
PURPOSE Oxygen extraction fraction (OEF), defined by the ratio of oxygen consumption to delivery, may be a useful parameter for assessing the retinal tissue status under impaired circulation. We report a method for measurement of inner retinal OEF in rats under normoxia and hypoxia based on vascular oxygen tension (PO(2)) imaging. METHODS Retinal vascular(More)
PURPOSE Oxygen extraction fraction (OEF), defined by the ratio of oxygen metabolism (MO2) to delivery (DO2), determines the level of compensation of MO2 by DO2. In the current study, we tested the hypothesis that inner retinal OEF remains unchanged during light flicker under systemic normoxia and hypoxia in rats due to the matching of MO2 and DO2. METHODS(More)
This study describes and evaluates a semiautomated method for prescribing an optimal imaging plane that is located as close as possible to the skull base, and is simultaneously nearly perpendicular to the four arteries leading blood to the brain [internal carotid arteries (ICAs) and vertebral arteries (VAs)]. Such a method will streamline and improve(More)
