    Predicting the Progression of Geographic Atrophy in Age-Related Macular Degeneration With SD-OCT En Face Imaging of the Outer Retina

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) en face imaging was used to measure the growth of geographic atrophy (GA) and identify baseline anatomic changes in the outer retina in eyes with nonexudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD). PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this prospective study, eyes were imaged using 200 × 200 and 512 × 128 A-scan raster patterns. Outer retinal anatomy was visualized using en face imaging of a 20-μm thick slab encompassing the inner segment/outer segment (IS/OS) band. RESULTS: En face SD-OCT imaging of the IS/OS region revealed a bilaterally symmetrical pattern of outer retinal disruption ...
