Clinical behavior of intraocular teratoid medulloepithelioma in two-related Quarter Horses.

18. Oktober 2016

Gainesville – mechentel news – The objective of this paper is to describe clinical behavior, histopathologic features, and immunohistochemical staining of two-related horses withintraocular teratoid medulloepithelioma. Two-related Quarter Horses with similar intraocular masses presented to the UF-CVM Comparative Ophthalmology Service for evaluation and treatment. The first horse, a 3-year-old gelding, had glaucoma and a cyst-like mass in the anterior chamber. Enucleation was performed. Histopathology revealed a teratoid medulloepithelioma. The tumor

Comparison between Pentacam-HR and optical coherence tomographycentral corneal thicknessmeasurements in healthy feline eyes.

18. Oktober 2016

Fort Collins – mechentel news – To measure the central corneal thickness (CCT) in healthy feline eyes with Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam, Pentacam(®) -HR) and to compare these values with those obtained with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT, Optovue(®) iVue), 31 sedated Domestic Short-haired cats were included in this study. Two repeated CCT measurements were obtained from both eyes using Pentacam measured at the pupil center and corneal apex (CCTpupil and CCTapex

Intra- and interobserver reliability of lens equatorial length measurement using 35-MHz ultrasound biomicroscopy in dogs with cataract.

18. Oktober 2016

Eysines – mechentel news -To determine intra- and interobserver reliability of lens equatorial length measurement using 35-MHz ultrasound biomicroscopy in dogs with cataract, Ocular ultrasonography was performed on 28 dogs (50 eyes) before phacoemulsification. Lens equatorial length was measured on still images obtained at 35 MHz in all dogs. Each observer (A and B) obtained
