Abstract

Purpose : To evaluate the diagnostic value of wide-field MultiColor spectral imaging (WF-MC) and wide-field spectral domain optical coherence tomography (WF-SD-OCT) in patients with retinitis pigmentosa.

Methods : Between November 2014 and November 2015 a consecutive series of 42 patients with retinitis pigmentosa were examined clinically and with WF-MC and WF-SD-OCT (55 degrees, Spectralis MultiColor HRA & OCT, Heidelberg Engineering, Germany)). Further retinal imaging in 30 or 55 degree mode (fundus autofluorescence (FAF), near-infrared autofluorescence (NIA), spectral domain OCT (SD-OCT) were performed with the same system. DNA testing was performed via targeted gene panel diagnostics.

Results : The series of patients included retinitis pigmentosa associated with different disease genes and different inheritance patterns. WF-MC provided a wide-angle view of retinal abnormalities beyond the vascular arcades excluding the far periphery. The evaluation of the three different monochromatic images (blue 486 nm, green 518 nm, near-infrared 815 nm) allowed a differentiation in inner retinal or pigment epithelial and choroidal lesions. Retinal thinning beyond the posterior pole can be visualized with WF-SD-OCT with a good correlation to choroidal thinning within the same image.

Conclusions : WF-MC and WF-SD-OCT provide the opportunity to observe more details of retinal alterations in retinitis pigmentosa in the midperipheral and peripheral retina area.
