Novel morphometric analysis of higher order structure of human radial peri-papillary capillaries: relevance to retinal perfusion efficiency and age

Barbosa, Marconi; Maddess, Ted; Ahn, Samyoul; Chan-Ling, Tailoi


We apply novel analyses to images of superfcial capillaries that are located near and around the optic disc of the human retina: the radial peri-papillary capillaries (RPCs). Due to their unique perfusion of the nerve fbre layer the RPCs are particularly signifcant for optic-neuropathies. The inputs to the analysis were z-stacks from 3D confocal fuorescence microscopy from 62 human retinas aged 9 to 84 years. Our aim was to fnd morphometric correlates of age. The retinas had no ophthalmic...[Show more]
