    16. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography: Evolution or Revolution?

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography: Evolution or Revolution?
      Fluorescein angiography (FA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) are gold standard diagnostic tools to study retinal vessels in clinical practice. Both FA and ICGA require intravenous dye injection, which can result in nausea and, rarely, anaphylaxis [1, 2]. Leakage of dye in the later frames of the angiogram is used to identify any injuries like retinal vascular abnormalities or choroidal macular neovascularization (MNV). Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a ...

  2. About Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele

    Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele

    Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele is a vibrant and acclaimed University in Milan, Italy.  Its campus, which converges with the San Raffaele Hospital site, is overseen by an 8-metre statue of San Raffaele that crowns the central dome of the University’s new and resplendent Headquarters. Inspired by Jesus’ invitation in the Gospel to “go forth, teach and heal”, Don Luigi Verzé, the founder, foresaw a natural progression from his seedling hospital to a renowned health care provider and to an international biomedical research and teaching centre. His vision duly came to fruition with the respective inaugurations of DIBIT, a substantial complex of research laboratories, in 1992, and of the Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele in 1996. The University opened with the Faculty of Psychology. Two years later, in 1998, the Faculty of Medicine was added, and the current triumvirate was completed with the creation, in 2002, of  the Faculty of Philosophy.
