    Diagnosis of subretinal neovascularization associated with idiopathic juxtafoveal retinal telangiectasia - fluorescein angiography versus spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

    Background To compare ability of fluorescein angiography (FFA) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) to diagnose subretinal neovascularization (SRNV) secondary to idiopathic juxtafoveal retinal telangiectasia (IJRT) type 2A. Methods Two masked observers evaluated FFA and SD-OCT images separately to diagnose the presence of SRNV in 65 eyes of 36 patients. A third masked observer diagnosed SRNV on color fundus photo. Presence of SRNV on color fundus photo was defined as presence of subretinal hemorrhage, thickening of retina, and/or visible membrane at the macula. Presence of SRNV on FFA was defined when there was hyperfluorescence in early phase with increase ...
