    OCT-A Pinpoints Irregularities in Best Disease

    A team of researchers found optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a useful diagnostic tool in assessing eyes with Best disease and associated choroidal neovascularization (CNV). In a study published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology , investigators used OCT-A to find eyes with Best disease had abnormal foveal avascular zones (FAZ), patchy vascularity loss in the superficial and deep layers of the retina and capillary dropout with a hyporeflective center in the choriocapillary layer. Additionally, the investigators found OCT-A is superior to fluorescein angiography (FA) in measuring CNV. The prospective observational study included 19 eyes of 10 patients with Best ...
