    Radiation optic neuropathy diagnosis in nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients with radiation encephalopathy

    Aim To develop a suitable radiation optic neuropathy (RON) diagnostic model based on optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and to reveal the correlation between endocrine and OCTA indexes in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients with radiation encephalopathy (RE). Methods This retrospective cross-sectional study included seventy-seven male NPC patients with RE following radiotherapy (41 non-RON and 36 RON). Endocrine and OCTA indexes were collected. The macular and peripapillary vessel density (VD) were automatically analyzed using AngioVue 2.0 of the RTVue XR Avanti device. The OCTA indexes were included in the multivariable binary logistic regression model between non-RON and RON. For all ...
