    Optical Coherence Tomography Features for Identifying Posttreatment Complete Polypoidal Regression in Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy

    Purpose: To determine accuracy and relative risk (RR) of posttreatment optical coherence tomography (OCT) features in identifying complete or incomplete polypoidal regression in polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). Design: Validity analysis. Methods: Treatment-naive PCV eyes undergoing OCT and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) at baseline and posttreatment were included. Two graders confirmed diagnosis and identified posttreatment complete or incomplete regression on ICGA. Two other graders classified OCT characteristics of pigment epithelial detachment (PED) (polypoidal lesion) based on 5 prespecified features: "A," no PED; "B," PED with internal homogeneous reflectivity with predominant "BUN" (blended retinal pigment epithelium with underlying structure) sign; "C," PED ...
