optical coherence tomography angiography

OCTA brings understanding to managing diabetic eye diseaseOptical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a promising new approach for visualizing retinal vascular pathology in eyes with diabetic eye disease that can be expected to have even greater utility in the future pending further enhancements.
Diagnosing and treating MacTel degenerative retinal diseaseIdiopathic macular telangiectasia (MacTel) is bilateral condition characterised by ectatic capillaries of the macula and atrophy of the neurosensory retina. Familiarity with the distinctive intraretinal cavitation on SD-OCT in type 2, the most common type, is key for correct diagnosis.
OCT imaging yields better visualizationFuture increases in imaging speed will improve performance and functionality for OCT and OCT angiography (OCTA), said James Fujimoto, PhD.
How adaptive optics will change retinal imaging
How adaptive optics will change retinal imagingAdaptive optics could allow clinicians to monitor the progression of retinal diseases cell-by-cell, according to Jacque Duncan, MD.
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.
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.
