      Evidence Mounts That an Eye Scan May Detect Early Alzheimer's Disease

      Results from two studies show that a new, non-invasive imaging device can see signs of Alzheimer's disease in a matter of seconds. The researchers show that the small blood vessels in the retina at the back of the eye are altered in patients with Alzheimer's. Even patients who have a family history of Alzheimer's but have no symptoms show these telltale signs. And they showed that they can distinguish between people with Alzheimer's and those with only mild cognitive impairment. Results from these studies are being presented at AAO 2018, the 122 nd Annual Meeting of ...

      Zeiss AngioPlex Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of the Retinal Microvasculature May Help Enhance Understanding of Retinal Diseas

      AngioPlexTM optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new approach to diagnostic imaging in retinal disease. This technology uses amplitude and phase aspects of the OCT signal and novel algorithms to enable highly detailed visualisation of the retinal microvasculature. This system detects capillary flow rather than the presence of an injected dye. Unlike fluorescein angiography (FA), AngioPlex OCT imaging can discriminate capillaries at the superficial and deep retina and can also generate a colour map of the retinal vessels providing unparalleled views of diseased capillaries and net structures. Retinal and choroidal pathologies that are amenable to AngioPlex OCT examination include diabetic ...
