OCT – Angiography is a high-tech examination that is carried out just like the OCT test but at the same time provides useful information for the status of the vessels and the perfusion of the macular, retina, optic nerve, and choroid.
Unlike fluorescein angiography or other forms of angiography (e.g., magnetic or CT- angiography, coronarography, etc.) intravenous administration of a dye or contrast substance is not required. The total duration of the examination usually does not exceed 3 minutes.
More frequent OCT performance indications:
- Age-related macular degeneration
- Myopia and myopic maculopathy
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Macular edema of any etiology
- Central serous chorioretinopathy
- Occlusion of retinal vein or arteria
