    Three-Dimensional Vascular Imaging of Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy by Doppler Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose To evaluate the three-dimensional architecture of neovascularization in proliferative diabetic retinopathy using Doppler optical coherence tomography (OCT). Design Prospective, nonrandomized clinical trial. Methods Seventeen eyes of 14 patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy were prospectively studied. Prototype Doppler OCT was used to evaluate the three-dimensional vascular architecture at vitreoretinal adhesions. Results Proliferative membranes were detected in all eyes with proliferative diabetic retinopathy by standard OCT images. Doppler OCT images detected blood flow by neovascularization of the disc in 12 eyes and neovascularization elsewhere in 11 eyes. Doppler OCT images showed the three-dimensional extent of new vessels at various stages of ...
