1. Combined imaging techniques aid identification of occult retinal disease

    Functional and anatomic studies using combined imaging techniques offered thorough analyses of various retinal pathologies. The study included 30 eyes scanned for classic and occult neovascular membranes, vascularized retinal pigmented epithelium, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, traumatic choroidal rupture, diabetic maculopathy, central serous retinopathy and macular drusen. Investigators used combined coronal optical coherence tomography, confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and indocyanine green (ICG) dye angiography. They aimed to identify unique relationships between morphology and function. Study results showed that simultaneous and superimposed visualization of a coronal OCT image and an ICG angiogram allowed accurate analysis of the retinal surface and retina-choroid interface. The ...
