  • Publication number: 20210022605
    Abstract: Relationships between morphological changes to an eye due to intraocular pressure changes and blood perfusion changes in the retina are determined by colocalizing retinal perfusion data and optic nerve head (ONH) mechanical deformation data. Perfusion changes from intraocular pressure (IOP) changes are determined by colocalizing retinal perfusion data with ONH mechanical deformation data. Optical coherence tomography-angiography (OCT-A) can be used to generate both retinal perfusion data and mechanical deformation data for an imaged volume. A three-dimensional model (e.g., connectivity map or connectivity model) of the vasculature can be generated from the OCT-A imaging data and used to predict changes in blood perfusion in various areas of the retina due to IOP-induced mechanical deformations.
