Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA) is a novel, non-invasive, dyeless imaging modality that has emerged as an indispensable tool in the fields of optometry and ophthalmology. OCTA provides three-dimensional volumetric images of the retinal and choroidal vasculature by using a motion-contrast decorrelation algorithm. This cutting-edge imaging technology has widespread clinical utility as a non-invasive alternative for visualizing microvasculature in detail, but there are no textbooks dedicated to its use and the interpretation of scans.
To fill this need, Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Atlas: A Case Study Approach, by Dr. Julie A. Rodman, is a richly illustrated, practical guide to OCTA. It provides detailed information on the fundamental principles behind the technology, as well as clinical applications critical for accurate interpretation.
The first section of the book discusses the principles behind OCTA and provides an introduction into the interpretation of OCTA images, including a chapter devoted to terminology. The remainder of the book provides detailed analysis of a myriad of inner and outer retinal disorders, including diseases of the optic nerve head. Most importantly for the clinical setting, the cases are presented with numerous images and a multitude of arrows and callouts to assist in the recognition of various clinical findings.
Case examples include:
Vascular Occlusive Disease
Pigment Epithelial Detachment
Choroidal Neovascular Membrane
Optic Disc Edema
Dr. Rodman’s emphasis on the clinical use of OCTA technology and step-by-step interpretation of images makes Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Atlas: A Case Study Approach a must-have resource for physicians, residents, students, and ophthalmic technicians looking for a simple, comprehensive guide to OCTA.
