    3. New imaging systems in diabetic retinopathy

      New imaging systems in diabetic retinopathy
      Various imaging modalities are of significant utility in the screening, grading, treatment, and follow-up of the different stages of diabetic retinopathy (DR) and diabetic macular edema. Color stereographic photography, fluorescein angiography, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) have been the gold standard for DR imaging for years. Besides these tools, newer technologies are gaining validation and popularity, such as fundus autofluorescence and OCT angiography. Furthermore, widefield retinography and ultra-widefield retinography have ...

    4. Vascular Alterations Revealed With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography In Patients With Choroideremia

      Vascular Alterations Revealed With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography In Patients With Choroideremia
      Purpose: Choroideremia is a rare degenerative retinal disease that causes incurable blindness. It occurs as a result of the deficiency of the X-linked CHM gene, which encodes the Rab escort protein 1 (REP1). Gene therapy has been developed to treat CHM using adeno-associated viral vectors and is currently undergoing clinical trials. Expression of the CHM gene is ubiquitous throughout the retina, and it is therefore important to identify which retinal ...

      Choroidal Neovascularization in Torpedo Maculopathy Assessed on Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Torpedo maculopathy is characterized by a congenital, unilateral, and torpedo-shaped chorioretinal lesion with unclear pathogenesis and evolution. Although the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) characteristics have already been defined in literature, the authors describe for the first time the presence of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) on the temporal edge of this lesion in a 36-year-old woman with a history of altered visual field in her left eye.

    13. En Face Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Primary Vitreoretinal Lymphoma

      En Face Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Primary Vitreoretinal Lymphoma
      The authors report a case of a female patient affected by primary vitreoretinal lymphoma (PVRL) showing retinal involvement. In particular, multiple subretinal hyperreflective infiltrates were found on optical coherence tomography (OCT). These alterations appeared hyperautofluorescent on fundus autofluorescence images. Interestingly, they also appeared hyperreflective on OCT angiography images. This case report underlined the high utility of OCT-based methodologies in accurately detecting and describing PVRL features.

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a new tool able to visualize the different retinal plexuses and choroidal plexus, and it is a dye-free, rapid, and three-dimensional method. A new era in retinal imaging has begun, and retinal specialists have to deal with this novel diagnostic tool. However, OCT-A is a very recent technology and, as such, its clinical applications have still to be determined. For these reasons, dye angiographies ...

  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.
