    Ophthalmic imaging modalities: a lot of change in 2 years

    In the past 2 years, advancements in ophthalmic imaging technologies have made huge strides. According to David Huang, MD, Casey Eye Institute, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon, just when you think you’ve hit the ceiling in technology, there is a new breakthrough that exceeds all previous expectations. He made this observation while speaking on “Landmark achievements in new imaging modalities 2016–2018” at the 2018 World Ophthalmology Congress. Such is the case with optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), visible light OCT (vis-OCT), and the application of deep learning in ophthalmology, which represent three landmark technological changes that ...

    1. Among the developments in the past 2 years, OCTA is by far the most important...Clinically, OCTA represents a paradigm change in angiography. It requires no dye injection, is faster (no waiting for dye transit), noninvasive, cheaper, and it can be used at every visit for screening and monitoring. OCTA will be used a lot more that fluorescein angiography ever was.
