1. Distinct DME patterns seen on OCT

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is valuable in managing diabetic macular oedema (DME), more so than fluorescein angiography, in which the degree of leakage is not correlated with visual acuity and outcomes, according to Peter Kaiser, MD. In addition, angiography does not show vitreoretinal abnormalities that may require a different treatment. OCT provides a retinal thickness map that correlates well with leakage clinically, fluorescein leakage, and more importantly, with decreased visual acuity. The maps can be used to track progression and treatment efficacy, according to Dr Kaiser, of the Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, US. The OCT single scan tomograms ...
