1. IMPROVED VISUALIZATION OF POLYPOIDAL CHOROIDAL VASCULOPATHY LESIONS USING SPECTRAL-DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY.

    Purpose: To report the tomographic features of vascular lesions beneath the retinal pigment epithelium in eyes with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy by using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Design: Retrospective observational case series. Methods: Angiograms and images obtained using the prototype SD-OCT system were compared for 21 eyes of 21 patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy to identify sub-retinal pigment epithelium abnormalities visible on three-dimensional and enhanced SD-OCT images. Results: On angiography, a branching vascular network and at least 1 polypoidal lesion were visible in all 21 eyes; 10 eyes also had pigment epithelial detachment (PED). SD-OCT revealed a thin straight line ...
