OCTA

New technology takes invisibility cloak off in retinal imaging
New technology takes invisibility cloak off in retinal imagingNew imaging technologies, such as ultra-wide-field fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography angiography, are providing more details about retinal diseases than previous imaging technologies, leading to better understanding of disease processes.
System offers advanced capabilities in OCT, OCTAThe recent FDA clearance of a swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCTA) platform (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec) for posterior ocular structures enables fast, dense, wide, and deep imaging of the retina, choroid, and their associated microvasculature, said Philip J. Rosenfeld, MD, PhD.
OCT + OCTA capable of imaging both structure and functionA new dual-modality imaging system adds optical coherence tomography angiography to conventional OCT to rapidly visualize blood flow in the retina and layers of choroidal neovascularization.
