    Engaging OCTA in glaucoma imaging

    Ophthalmologists could have a new tool to assess progression in glaucoma by measuring vascular damage in the retina and optical nerve head. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) can directly measure retinal vessel densities in a non-invasive, reliable, and reproducible manner, and provide indirect measurements of ocular perfusion and blood flow. “We know that retinal blood flow is reduced with increasing glaucoma severity,” said Vikas Chopra, MD. “We have not had an easily performed, reliable, noninvasive method to assess retinal blood flow or changes in retinal blood flow before OCTA,” said Dr. Chopra, associate professor of clinical ophthalmology, David Geffen School ...
