    Correlating the Measure of Retinal Vascular Density Through Angio-OCT With Calcium Score

    Recent case-control studies have proven that the retinal vascularization mirrors the cardiac vascularization: more the coronary network is altered, more the density of retinal vessels is reduced. No studies have yet been realised in primary prevention. Our study aims to demonstrate a link between the density of the retinal vascularization and the calcium score, which is currently the gold standard for the classification of cardiovascular risk in primary prevention. Thus, a simple image of the retinal vascularization could predict the cardiovascular risk of a patient. OCT angiography would become a major aid in the classification of cardiovascular risk in asymptomatic ...
