There are a wide range of variables which can influence the quality of the multifocal response. It is possible to place these variables into one of four categories. First, the method of stimulus delivery will determine the field of view, interference levels and the duration of on-state stimulation. Second, data acquisition variables such as electrode type(More)
The effect of filter bandwith on the multifocal electroretinogram was assessed by means of theoretical calculation, electronic simulation and real multifocal electroretinogram recordings. Waveform distortion by high-pass filtering on simulated square waves, normal electroretinogram waveforms and negative electroretinogram waveforms was demonstrated. The(More)
We report an observational case study which showed that the rod pathway may have a significant effect on the multifocal electroretinogram (mfERG). A 68-year-old lady diagnosed with Vitamin A deficiency underwent standard ERG and mfERG. ERG rod and cone function were analysed and the first order mfERG responses were determined. At presentation, there was no(More)
PURPOSE To determine the features of wide-field multifocal electroretinography (WF-mfERG) recorded in patients with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) and to compare WF-mfERG responses of the affected and fellow eyes. In addition, WF-mfERG responses were also compared by using standard electroretinography (ERG). METHODS WF-mfERG and ERG responses were(More)
The purpose of this paper is to provide the reader with a better insight into the mechanisms of multifocal ERG (mfERG) recording. The construction of the first and second order mfERG responses were examined by recovering the response to specific pulse trains embedded in the m-sequence.A custom built pc based multifocal system driving a LED stimulator was(More)
Functional mapping of the retina by multifocal electroretinographic recordings is now possible. We compared the normal range, repeatability and response topography of this new technique with conventional static Humphrey perimetry to assess its suitability in clinical practice. The multifocal technique was performed on 60 age-matched controls. Measures of(More)
Classical electromagnetic theory is used to examine the topographical variation in electrical potentials over the corneal surface resulting from specific retinal stimuli. Results from a three-dimensional mathematical model show that over 97% of calculated electromagnetic field potentials lie within 3% of previous analytical model data for an axially(More)
The purpose of this paper is to compare and evaluate the multifocal ERG response from raster based CRT and Digital Projection (LCD) stimulus delivery systems. A custom built p.c. based multifocal system was used to generate a 61 hexagonal element stimulus array. The stimulus was presented on a high luminance CRT display and on a back projected screen using(More)
Multimodal imaging (MMI) is a new imaging technique that combines an electrophysiological test (multifocal electroretinogram) with an optical coherence tomography ophthalmoscope. MMI allows the two technologies to operate simultaneously yet independently to provide accurate correlation of macular structure and function at multiple sites. Preliminary work(More)
In this paper, a method of characterization of a transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasound propagation channel is proposed. A simplified 3-D isotropic half-spheroid scattering channel model is described. The temporal autocorrelation function (ACF) is investigated. Based on the theoretical model, a sum-of-sinusoids (SoS) simulation model is proposed and its(More)
