Three-Dimensional Assessment of Vascular and Perivascular Characteristics in Subjects with Retinopathy of Prematurity – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To study vascular features detected with spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in subjects undergoing retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) screening.Design: Cross-sectional study.Participants and Controls: Fifty-seven premature neonates, 10 with plus disease in at least 1 eye and 47 without plus disease.Methods: Bedside noncontact SD-OCT imaging was performed after obtaining parental consent on 97 consecutive infants between January 2009 and September 2012. Fifty-seven subjects (31–49 weeks' post-menstrual age) who had an SD-OCT scan in at least 1 eye showing the edge of the optic nerve and at least 1 major retinal vascular arcade were included.
