MRI of blood perfusion in the choroid

Jul 30, 2018Myopia

This project investigates blood perfusion changes in the choroid in relation to eye growth regulation and myopia. Recent evidence suggests that the human choroid has a remarkable ability to modulate its thickness to compensate for imposed refractive error. However, mechanisms underlying these changes remain elusive. We are investigating the effects of optical and pharmacological interventions on the human choroid, and measuring thickness and blood perfusion changes using novel non-invasive techniques, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and arterial spin labelling magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
