Angio-OCT is a novel diagnostic technique that allows visualizing the retinal circulation without using intravenous contrast; Simultaneously, you can see the different capillary networks of the retina and choroid. You can see the glasses of the 3mm., 6mm. And 8 mm. Central regions of the retina, in addition to observing the circulation of the optic nerve head.

 

Applications of Angio-OCT

Angio-OCT has multiple applications in vascular macular pathology, optic nerve and choroidal pathology. For example, it makes it possible to study the vasculature in diseases such as neovascular macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, macular edema and pachyteroid diseases.
