Retinal imagingFor optimal standard of care

Retinal imagingFor optimal standard of care

Retinal imaging has developed tremendously in the last decades.

A broad range of imaging devices with different technologies is available today for retina specialists.

Multimodal imaging

 

The advent of fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), as well as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) are fundamental to the paradigms shift in the diagnosis and management of patients affected by retinal and systemic disease, in which a multimodal approach is often used to diagnose a disease by combining different imaging modalities.

Imaging techniques

Multimodal imaging may be divided into either invasive or non-invasive imaging techniques.

Invasive

This category includes the dye-based techniques of FA and ICGA, both providing dynamic information.

Non-invasive

The emergence of multimodal imaging in ophthalmology and its integration into daily clinical practice will provide the optimal standard of care for successful management of retinal disease, as well as advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of these diseases.
