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.
