Abstract
 
Purpose
 

Retrospective consecutive case series of all images obtained via multiwavelength scanning laser imaging using the Spectralis MultiColor Module, (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg UK) between January 1st 2013 and June 30th 2013. Images were accessed via Heidelberg Explorer (Version 1.8.6) and patients with at least one multiwavelength image were included in the study. Data regarding patient demographics and known diagnoses were accessed from electronic patient records.

 
Methods
 

Retrospective consecutive case series of all images obtained via multiwavelength scanning laser imaging using the Spectralis MultiColor Module, (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg UK) between January 1st 2013 and June 30th 2013. Images were accessed via Heidelberg Explorer (Version 1.8.6) and all patients with at least one multiwavelength image were included in the study. Data regarding patient demographics and known diagnoses were accessed from electronic patient records.

 
Results
 

A total of 486 eyes of 264 patients were imaged with multiwavelength imaging. The average age (± SD) of patients was 57.6 ± 1.4 and male to female ratio was 1:1. Diagnoses were available in 206 of 264 (78%) patients imaged. Of these, 91 (34%) had a macular diagnosis, 64 (24%) had a retinal diagnosis and 42 (16%) had both retinal and macular diagnoses. There were 12 different macular diseases imaged; the most common were age-related macular degeneration (AMD) (43%), central serous chorioretinopathy (18%), and macular oedema (12%). There were 13 different retinal diagnoses imaged; the most common were diabetic retinopathy (22%), uveitis (19%) and retinal vein occlusion (12%). The most common disease imaged was AMD and was present in 54 of all 264 (20%) patients imaged. This comprised of 46 (85%) patients with neovascular AMD in at least one eye and 8 (15%) patients with non-neovascular AMD.

 
Conclusions
 

Multiwavelength imaging is a new and exciting retinal imaging modality with the potential to offer additional insights into retinal and macular disease. The results of this work show the wide range of retinal and macular diseases, which can and have been imaged using this new imaging modality.
