Digital indocyanine-green angiography in chorioretinal disorders

Ophthalmology. 1992 Feb;99(2):287-91. doi: 10.1016/s0161-6420(92)31981-5.


The authors performed digital indocyanine-green angiography in 37 patients with chorioretinal disorders. Eighteen patients had choroidal neovascularization, 7 patients had atrophic age-related maculopathy, and 12 patients had uncommon choroidal and retinal disorders. A Topcon indocyanine-green camera was integrated with a digital (1024-line resolution) angiography system. Compared with conventional video or photographic indocyanine-green angiography, this technique offers enhanced image resolution, the possibility of direct qualitative comparison with fluorescein angiography, image archiving, hard-copy generation, and tracing capabilities to plan laser treatment strategies and monitor the adequacy of laser therapy after surgery.
