Abstract

Purpose : Comparison of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT_A) between Zeiss and Heidelberg Engineering imaging techniques in a series of patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration.

Methods : 23 patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration were examined clinically and with fluorescein angiography as well as with Zeiss AngioPlex OCT-A and Heidelberg Engineering Spectralis OCT-A

Results : Although the duration of examination was longer with the Heidelberg Engineering OCT-A, examinations could be performed reliably with both OCT-A techniques in all 23 patients. Between both OCT-A techniques, there was no significant difference in the detection rate of neovascularisations (21/23) as well as the lesion size. There was no diagnostic relevant difference between both OCT-A techniques.

Conclusions : Zeiss AngioPlex OCT-A and Heidelberg Engineering Spectralis OCT-A are comparable in the evaluation of neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
