OCTA enabled visualization of a neovascular lesion in the outer retina and choriocapillaris. Combining this information with fundus photography, structural OCT and patient history indicates that the lesion is chronic and inactive in nature, which assists in making management decisions for this patient. Sharing the OCTA images with the patient helped her to understand the seriousness of her condition and the importance of keeping her follow-up appointments.
