Angio OCT in Everyday Ophthalmic Practice

by Bruno Lumbroso, David Huang, Marco Rispoli

This book focuses on Angio OCT in Everyday Ophthalmic Practice. An epochal transition is taking place in clinical retinal imaging. In everyday practice, optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography (OCTA) progressively replaces fluorescein angiography. Optical coherence tomography angiography is already a part of everyday normal eye examination, and the device sits next to the slit lamp in many offices. Structural OCT highlights retinal alterations in morphology and structure of retinal layers. Optical coherence tomography angiography integrates the structural imaging by showing the blood flow. This book consists of 18 chapters, which include principles and technology, terminology, practical problems of OCT angiography, artifacts in OCT angiography, OCT angiography of normal retinal vascular structure, OCT angiography quantitative assessment, choroidal neovascularization in age-related macular degeneration, exudative choroidal neovascularization monitoring after treatment, choroidal neovascularization activity features, OCTA features in polypoidal vasculopathy, diabetic retinopathy and optical coherence tomography angiography, and branch and central vein occlusions. Illustrated with drawings, outlines, structural and functional OCT figures, this handbook intends to teach OCTA interpretation for routine everyday use, documenting and diagnosing retinal pathologies.
