PURPOSE To estimate the potential of polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) for quantitative assessment of drusen in patients with early age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS Fifteen eyes from 13 patients presenting drusen consistent with Age-Related Eye Disease Study classifications (grades 2 and 3) were examined ophthalmoscopically, followed by fundus photography, autofluorescence imaging, and three-dimensional scanning using a PS-OCT. For the automated… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Automated assessment of drusen using three-dimensional spectral-domain optical coherence tomography.
TLDR
Automated assessment of drusen parameters based on the authors' algorithm on 3D SD-OCT showed good agreement with the assessment by certified graders on color fundus photography in these subjects.
Comparison of drusen area detected by spectral domain optical coherence tomography and color fundus imaging.
TLDR
There was only fair agreement between drusen area measurements obtained from SD-OCT images and color fundus photos, and the two approaches provide complementary information about Drusen.
Polarization-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography and Conventional Retinal Imaging Strategies in Assessing Foveal Integrity in Geographic Atrophy.
TLDR
Polarization-sensitive OCT can better allow correct grading of the fovea in relation to BCVA and identify foveal sparing than other imaging modalities, and should be considered in diagnostic and therapeutic evaluations.
DRUSEN MEASUREMENTS COMPARISON BY FUNDUS PHOTOGRAPH MANUAL DELINEATION VERSUS OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY RETINAL PIGMENT EPITHELIAL SEGMENTATION AUTOMATED ANALYSIS
TLDR
The number of drusen individualized by commercial OCT algorithms is significantly lower than by planar fundus imaging modalities, suggesting that the algorithm counts confluentdrusen as a single drUSen.
Polarisation-sensitive OCT is useful for evaluating retinal pigment epithelial lesions in patients with neovascular AMD
TLDR
PS-OCT unambiguously identifies RPE changes in choroidal neovascularisation compared with intensity-based SD-O CT that does not identify the RPE status reliably and may be suitable for precise RPE evaluation in clinical practice.
Change in drusen area over time compared using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography and color fundus imaging.
TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between drusen areas measured with color fundus images (CFIs) and those with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) found Spectral-domain OCTdrusen area measurements were smaller than the measurements obtained from CFIs; however, there were no differences in the change in drUSen area over time between the two imaging modalities.
Retinal Pigment Epithelial Features in Central Serous Chorioretinopathy Identified by Polarization-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography.
TLDR
Feature of RPE indicative of previous episodes of CSC detected by PS-OCT correspond well to choroidal lesions in ICGA, thus providing valuable information about disease processes in vivo.
Drusen and RPE atrophy automated quantification by optical coherence tomography in an elderly population
TLDR
OCT-based automated algorithms can be used to analyze and describe drusen and geographic atrophy burden in such population-based studies of elderly patients and found to be directly associated with SBP.
Characterization of stargardt disease using polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography and fundus autofluorescence imaging.
TLDR
PS-OCT together with FAF identified characteristic patterns of changes in different stages of the disease and is a promising new tool for diagnosis and evaluation of future treatment modalities in Stargardt disease.

Performance of drusen detection by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography.
TLDR
SD-OCT imaging proved an excellent performance in visualizing drusen-related RPE disease, however, the available automated segmentation algorithms showed distinct limitations to reliable identification of the amount ofdrusen, particularly smaller drusan, and the actual size.
OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY-RASTER SCANNING AND MANUAL SEGMENTATION IN DETERMINING DRUSEN VOLUME IN AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION
TLDR
Drusen volume as determined by spectral domain-OCT correlates with AREDs-determined drusen area and AREDS grade in nonexudative AMD, and can provide additional information in grading the severity of eyes with dry AMD.
Segmentation and quantification of retinal lesions in age-related macular degeneration using polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography.
TLDR
Results from measurements in the eyes of AMD patients prove the ability of PS-OCT for quantitative imaging based on the retinal features polarizing properties and appear as a promising imaging modality for three-dimensional retinal imaging and ranging with additional contrast based onThe structures' tissue-inherent polarization properties.
Automated detection of macular drusen using geometric background leveling and threshold selection.
TLDR
Automated Drusen segmentation can be reliably performed on digital fundus photographs and result in successful quantification of drusen in a more precise manner than is traditionally possible with manual stereoscopic grading of drUSen.
Imaging of the retinal pigment epithelium in age-related macular degeneration using polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography.
TLDR
PS-SD-OCT provided precise identification of retinal pigment epithelium in AMD and identified multiple foci of RPE loss in patients with nAMD and allowed recognition of advanced RPE disease associated with choroidal neovascularization.
CORRELATION OF PATHOLOGIC FEATURES IN SPECTRAL DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY WITH CONVENTIONAL RETINAL STUDIES
TLDR
This integration of SDOCT with other retinal studies is promising and will be useful to study the relationship between local OCT morphology and other parameters of retinal disease or function.
