Summary of "Ultra-Wide Field Retinal Imaging and Angiography in the Differential Diagnosis and Therapeutic Decisions in Vascular Diseases of the Peripheral Retina."

Investigation of vascular diseases of the peripheral retina requires imaging procedures that allow a comprehensive view of the periphery, as well as reproducible pictures. In particular, ultra-wide field fluorescence angiography facilitates diagnosis, therapeutic decisions and follow-up examinations. While vasculopathies such as Coats disease and familiar exudative vitreoretinopathy are diagnosed within the first and second decade of life, patients' compliance during fundus imaging is typically reduced within this age range. Compared to the repeated imaging procedures for composite formation, ultra-wide field imaging has significantly reduced recording time. Nevertheless, current imaging systems are not able to map the entire retina in scaled proportions. Therefore, the imaging frame must be guided by patients' gaze onto the affected retinal area. Moreover, the medical photographer must be aware of the clinical setting and the region of interest. Hence, previous detailed funduscopy by trained ophthalmologists will remain indispensable.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Non-invasive method of vascular imaging and determination of internal anatomy without injection of contrast media or radiation exposure. The technique is used especially in CEREBRAL ANGIOGRAPHY as well as for studies of other vascular structures.

A technique of diagnostic imaging of RETINA or CORNEA of the human eye involving the measurement and interpretation of polarizing ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES such as radio or light waves. It is helpful in the diagnosis of GLAUCOMA; MACULAR DEGENERATION; and other retinal disorders.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

Visualization of a vascular system after intravenous injection of a fluorescein solution. The images may be photographed or televised. It is used especially in studying the retinal and uveal vasculature.

Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED).
