1. Fundus Autofluorescence and Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging of 10 and 20 millisecond Pascal(R) Retinal Photocoagulation Treatment

    Aim: To report the evolution of pattern scanning laser (Pascal®) photocoagulation burns in the treatment of diabetic retinopathy, using Fourier-Domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) and fundus autofluorescence (AF), and to evaluate these characteristics with clinically visible alterations in outer retina (OR) and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). Methods: Standard red-free and colour fundus photography (FP), FD-OCT, and fundus camera-based AF were performed in 17 eyes of 11 patients following macular and panretinal photocoagulation (PRP). Results: One hour following Pascal® application, visibility of threshold burns on FP was incomplete. AF enabled visualization of complete treatment arrays at one hour, with hypo-autofluorescence at ...
