Optical coherence tomography angiography for detection and diagnosis of vascular diseases of the eye
Topic Status Incomplete
Eye conditions are often diagnosed based on the interpretation of multiple imaging tests. Some of these, such as fluorescein angiography, are invasive, whilst non-invasive tests such as optical coherence tomography are not always accurate and require more confirmatory tests. Optical coherence tomography angiography is a relatively new non-invasive diagnostic tool that has been proposed as an alternative to fluorescein angiography.
Health Technology Wales researchers searched for clinical and cost effectiveness evidence on optical coherence tomography angiography for use in the diagnosis of conditions of the eye vasculature.
HTW’s Assessment Group decided to progress this topic to full appraisal
