Report examines accuracy of OCT for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (October 27, 2014 - Insidermedicine)
From Scotland - A new report published in Ophthalmology examines the accuracy of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in monitoring neovascular age-related macular degeneration. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis comprised of 8 studies and 400 individuals, comparing OCT to funds fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green angiography. Results showed that OCT had a sensitivity of 85% and specificity of 48% in detecting active nAMD. ICGA, meanwhile had a sensitivity of 75.9% and specificity of 88%. These results suggest that both methods may be needed to monitor those with nAMD
