The updated edition of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Angiography of the Eye is an essential guide for ophthalmologists who are interested in using this new imaging modality. Unlike traditional dye-based fluorescein angiography (FA) and indocyanine green (ICG) angiography, OCT angiography uses motion as intrinsic contrast and does not require any intravenous dye injections. With its noninvasive nature and ease of use, OCT angiography is becoming increasingly popular in everyday ophthalmology and may soon replace FA in routine practice.
The book, authored by Drs. David Huang, Bruno Lumbroso, Yali Jia, and Nadia Waheed, provides detailed information on the clinical applications and fundamental principles of OCT angiography, including high-speed OCT systems, flow contrast algorithms, normal eye appearances, and findings in various diseases. The 3-dimensional nature of OCT angiography enables visualization of previously difficult-to-image vascular beds such as the retinal vascular plexuses, choriocapillaris, and choroidal vessels.
Readers will find tips on how to deal with artifacts and pitfalls, making this a valuable resource for both the retina specialist and comprehensive ophthalmologist. As OCT angiography continues to be adopted worldwide, this book is a must-have for those looking to stay ahead of the curve in ophthalmic imaging.
