Abstract

INTRODUCTION. The aim of the study is to compare classical vein imaging methods used to diagnose Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), like fluorescein angiography (FA), with non-invasive modern methods of ultrafast optical blood flow detection (Optical Coherence Tomography-angiography, Angio-OCT).

METHODS. Images obtained during examination using AF and Angio-OCT methods of four randomly selected patients treated for AMD in the Department of Ophthalmology Medical University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland were used for evaluation.

RESULTS. Images obtained during routine check-up of patients treated for AMD were compared.

CONCLUSIONS. Angio-OCT is a non-invasive, non-contact, fast, and safe examination of patients treated for AMD. Angio-OCT is a modern method that provides important information about the progression of the disease, and it is used to evaluate retinal and choroidal vessels in patients with AMD.
