Abstract

Purpose : Fluorescein angiography is valuable for the detection of non-perfusion area (NPA), but it is an invasive test. While OCT angiography (OCT-A) is a non-invasive test, the angle was narrow to detect NPA. We compared wide angle OCT angiography with ultra-wide field FA on the defection of NPA.

Methods : Patients with diabetic retinopathy (age ≥ 20 years, type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus) underwent nonsteered ultra-wide field FA using the Optos® panoramic 200Tx imaging system and wide angle OCT-A with 12.0x12.0-mm fields of five visual fixations (center, superotemporal, inferotemporal, superonasal, inferonasal) using PLEX Elite 9000®. We counted the numbers of the eyes of positive or false negative with OCT-A among eyes with positive NPA in FA and false positive or negative with OCT-A among eyes with NPA negative with FA. We calculated the sensitivity and the specificity for the detection of NPA by OCT-A.

Results : We evaluated twenty three eyes out of 13 patients (mean age, 59.9 years old; female/male, 5/8) with diabetic retinopathy. The number of true positive was 20 eyes; false negative, one eye; false positive, one eye; and true negative, one eye on the detection of NPA by OCT-A. The sensitivity for the detection of NPA by OCT-A was 0.95 and the specificity was 0.5.

Conclusions : Because the wide angle OCT-A with a 12x12 mm field has high sensitivity for the detection of NPA, it could replace FA.
