Paper Abstract

Blood flow imaging of deep posterior eye has been demonstrated by using 1-μm spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. The high contrast imaging of deep posterior eye, such as the choroid and the sclera, enables blood flow imaging of choroidal vessels and short posterior ciliary arteries. Optical coherence angiography (OCA) images of outer part from the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) reveal the vasculature of the choroid and the particular vasculature of short posterior ciliary arteries so-called the circle of Zinn-Haller. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration for flow imaging the circle of Zinn-Haller with optical coherence tomography.
