OCT Angiography of Choroidal Neovascularization (CNV).

Dr. Caroline Baumal, NEEC New England Eye Center (Presenter)

Precis:  OCT Angiography (OCTA) produces high-resolution, 3-dimensional segmented images of the choroidal and retinal microvasculature. Advantages of OCTA compared to fluorescein angiography (FA) include lack of intravenous dye injection, increased efficiency and reduced procedure time. OCTA has found utility for non-invasive imaging of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in various disorders including AMD, myopia, CSCR and multifocal choroiditis. It has been efficacious to demonstrate subclinical CNV in non-exudative AMD. OCTA may eventually prove to be an endpoint for monitoring of CNV therapeutic response. The diagnostic OCTA features of CNV will be presented, supported by clinical cases.
