    An Excerpt from CEwire2019 (all courses still available through July 1st, 2019!)


    OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY ANGIOGRAPHY: REVOLUTIONIZING VITREORETINAL DISEASE
    Carolyn Majcher, OD, FAAO

    Credit Hours: 1
    COPE ID: 60195-PD

    Recent advances in optical coherence tomography imaging technology now include angiography which allows for quantification of vascular density and flow within the retina and choroid.

    These advancements have led an explosion of research regarding the clinical utility of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in various retinal diseases. This course will provide a review of this emerging technology including its advantages and limitations as compared to conventional fluorescein angiography.

    Additionally, the role of OCTA in the diagnosis and management of a variety of retinal conditions including diabetic retinopathy, retinal occlusive disease, and age-related macular degeneration will be explored.

    Good lecture. I would have really liked to see Optovue's Angio-analytics discussed but otherwise well done. The analytics makes OCTA much more powerful.
