Widefield OCT angiography
This session we will explore the research and clinical opportunities that are possible with the advent of wide-field optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). The advancement of standard OCT-A imaging to a much wider field of view has exponentially increased the potential uses for this technology. Where previous OCT-A imaging centred on macular disease, wide-field OCT-A now includes much more of the retina that is commonly affected by vascular disease thus allowing far greater clinical utility in conditions such as diabetes and vein occlusion as well as rarer conditions such as vasculitis. The session will discuss the principles of wide-field OCT-A imaging and how it is set to make a major impact, particularly in diagnosis and management of diabetic retinopathy and other retinal vascular disorders. The session will include examples of clinical cases where its use has been instrumental in management and will also discuss the implications for future research and clinical practice.
Practitioners will recognise how OCT-A can be used to diagnose and manage patients with retinal disease.
