Case Report: Primary Conjunctival Non-Hodgkin Marginal Zone Lymphoma.

Authors:
Loren W Bennett

Optom Vis Sci 2018 Dec 26. Epub 2018 Dec 26.

Idiopathic pigmented vitreous cyst without autofluorescence: a case report.

BMC Ophthalmol 2017 Oct 3;17(1):183. Epub 2017 Oct 3.

State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Zhongshan Image Reading Center, Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, 510060, China.

Background: Vitreous cysts are rare clinical findings and seldom cause visual disturbance. They are generally classified as congenital or acquired and are considered idiopathic when the etiology can not be determined. A previous electron microscopic observation on an idiopathic pigmented vitreous cyst has confirmed its pigment epithelial origin. Read More

CT in the Evaluation of Acute Injuries of the Anterior Eye Segment.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2017 Dec 27;209(6):1353-1359. Epub 2017 Sep 27.

1 The Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, Division of Neuroradiology, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, 600 N Wolfe St, Baltimore, MD 21287.

Objective: Slit-lamp ophthalmologic examination and ocular B-scan sonography of the globe are frequently constrained by technical limitations in the setting of traumatic orbital injury. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of CT in acute anterior segment ocular injuries as an adjunctive diagnostic modality.

Materials And Methods: We retrospectively identified 122 patients who presented to the emergency department from April 2011 through April 2016 with recent direct trauma to the anterior segment of the eye. Read More

Open-source algorithm for automatic choroid segmentation of OCT volume reconstructions.

Sci Rep 2017 02 9;7:42112. Epub 2017 Feb 9.

Centre de Recherche Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, Montréal, QC, Canada.

The use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to study ocular diseases associated with choroidal physiology is sharply limited by the lack of available automated segmentation tools. Current research largely relies on hand-traced, single B-Scan segmentations because commercially available programs require high quality images, and the existing implementations are closed, scarce and not freely available. We developed and implemented a robust algorithm for segmenting and quantifying the choroidal layer from 3-dimensional OCT reconstructions. Read More
