Clinical Findings

OCTA Assessment 

Angiovue® OCTA provided excellent resolution of inner retinal vasculature and provided color-coded vessel density mapping at the level of the superficial and deep capillary plexi (FIGURE 3). OCTA evaluation showed:


Capillary non-perfusion and corresponding retinal vascular changes were visualized with OCTA emphasizing the need for better management of this patient’s microvascular disease.
