    Optical coherence tomography angiography in the management of age-related macular degeneration

    Purpose of review Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) provides rapid, flow-based imaging of the retinal and choroidal vasculature in a noninvasive manner. This review contrasts this novel technique with conventional angiography and discusses its current uses and limitations in the management of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Recent findings Initial work with OCT-A has focused on its ability to identify choriocapillaris flow alterations in dry AMD and to sensitively detect choroidal neovascular membranes (CNVs) in neovascular AMD. Reduced choriocapillaris flow beyond the borders of geographic atrophy seen on OCT-A suggests a primary vascular cause in geographic atrophy . Longitudinal OCT-A analysis of ...
