The advantage of SDOCT over other imaging modalities or functional tests is that one modality can be used to image both drusen and geographic atrophy while obtaining reproducible, quantitative data on both drusen morphology and the area of geographic atrophy. Moreover, this strategy enables the clinician to follow the disease as it progresses from drusen to both geographic atrophy and choroidal neovascularization.
