    Application of optical coherence tomography angiography in diabetic retinopathy: a comprehensive review

    Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a noninvasive method that enables visualization of blood flow within retinal vessels down to the size of capillaries by detecting motion contrast from moving blood cells. OCTA provides a fast and safe procedure to assess retinal microvasculature with higher contrast and resolution than conventional fluorescence angiography . The different capillary plexuses are displayed separately and their perfusion density can be quantified. Imaging capabilities such as these have led to an emerging field of clinical application for OCTA in vascular diseases such as diabetic retinopathy (DR). Evaluation of parameters such as parafoveal capillary perfusion density could ...
