Abstract

We present a differential phase standard-deviation (DPSD)-based optical coherence tomographic (OCT) angiography (OCTA) technique to calculate the angiography images of the human retina. The standard deviation was calculated along the depth direction on the differential phase image of two B-scans (from the same position, at different times) to contrast dynamic vascular signals. The performance of a DPSD was verified by both phantom and in vivo experiments. When compared to other OCTA algorithms such as phase variance OCT, speckle variance OCT, and optical microangiography, we showed that a DPSD achieved improved image contrast and higher sensitivity. Furthermore, we also found the improved signal-to-noise ratio and contrast-to-noise ratio of 1.6 dB and 0.5, respectively, in large scanning range images.
