Uveitis can occur in all segments of the eye and has multiple etiologies, (many of which remain poorly understood). Elucidation of the signs clinically and with fluorescein angiography guides diagnosis and management. However these signs are often peripheral and visualization can be difficult with traditional angiography. Ultra wide field scanning laser ophthalmoscope (Optos Panoramic 200; Optos PLC, Dunfermline, Scotland, United Kingdom) performs ultra wide angle fluorescein angiography and its benefit in uveitis was reviewed.
The uveitis imaging database was reviewed and five representative cases of uveitis were selected. The relative benefits of wide field angiography were evaluated in each of these cases.
Ultra wide field angiography was found to identify, localize, grade and monitor the retinal signs more accurately than conventional angiography. This changed the management and allowed better patient care.
Ultra wide field angiography showed significant diagnostic and management utility over traditional angiography in cases of intermediate and posterior uveitis.
