Imaging CNV with a Focus on OCTA

Dr. Caroline Baumal, NEEC (Presenter)
With the advent of anti-VEGF therapy for choroidal neovascularization (CNV), earlier diagnosis of CNV may lead to earlier treatment with improved visual results. Dye based angiography has traditionally been used to diagnose CNV. OCT Angiography (OCTA) is a new, novel imaging modality that can demonstrate flow in the retinal and choroidal vasculature. OCT Angiography has many advantages over dye-based angiography including increased speed and efficiency with a noninvasive technique. The utility of OCTA to diagnose and manage CNV compared to other modalities will be discussed.
