    Early Detection of Radiation Retinopathy in Pediatric Patients Undergoing External Beam Radiation Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Detection of early vascular changes observed on optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in children who have received external beam radiation and are at risk of developing radiation retinopathy (RR). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eleven pediatric patients (20 eyes) with history of irradiation and nine healthy subjects (14 eyes) were retrospectively studied after dilated fundus exam and imaging. RESULTS: Four eyes of three patients had clinical RR. Eyes with radiation exposure but no RR had worse vision (no RR: logMAR 0.09 ± 0.14, Snellen 20/25) than controls (logMAR 0.01 ± 0.03, Snellen 20/21; P = .04 ...
