    Daily Self-Imaging with Home OCT Viable Among Patients with nAMD

    New findings suggest daily home optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging has feasibility among patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) . The home OCT additionally allowed for detailed graphical and mathematical analyses of retinal fluid volume trajectories, including novel parameters in order to inform clinical decision making. “It demonstrated good agreement with human expert grading for retinal fluid identification and excellent agreement with the in-clinic OCT scans,” wrote study author Jeffrey Heier, MD, Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston. The prospective, observational study aimed to validate the performance of a home OCT system (Notal Vision Home OCT) for daily self-imaging at home and ...

    1. It demonstrated good agreement with human expert grading for retinal fluid identification and excellent agreement with the in-clinic OCT scans.
    2. Parameters such as the rate of reduction in fluid volume in the first week after treatment and AUC between treatments captured the speed and duration of the response to anti-VEGF agents.
