      In Cost inhibits adoption of SS-OCT
    2. Incorporation of OCT structural imaging onto ICG angiography provides an anatomic frame of reference for late (ICG) leaks and reveals the flow characteristics of specific anatomic features.
      In Combined imaging techniques aid identification of occult retinal disease

      In OCT useful for measuring macular holes before closure surgery
