Abstract

Purpose: : To determine whether peripheral retinal vascular abnormalities are associated with common manifestations of diabetic retinopathy.

Methods: : A retrospective review was conducted on 125 consecutive ultrawide-angle angiograms of diabetic patients using the Optomap® 200 fa Dynamic Ultra-widefield Angiography System (Optos plc, Dunfermline, Scotland, UK). Patients were categorized by diagnosis, presence of diffuse or focal macular edema, posterior or peripheral neovascularization, later peripheral vascular staining, and macular or peripheral ischemia.

Results: : Using ultra-widefield angiography, peripheral ischemia was significantly associated with peripheral retinal neovascularization.

Conclusions: : The use of ultra-widefield angiography to identify peripheral retinal vascular pathology may enhance the sensitivity of detection for treatable conditions in diabetic retinopathy.

Keywords: diabetic retinopathy • imaging/image analysis: clinical • imaging methods (CT, FA, ICG, MRI, OCT, RTA, SLO, ultrasound)
