Abstract: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography is a new non-invasive imaging modality which is providing clinicians with an alternative to traditional dye-based angiography. The images are obtained using the concept of motion contrast and provide a quicker safer way to image the retinal and choroidal circulation. Not only are there practical aspects to support its integration but new insights are being made into the path; hysiology of various retinal choroidal diseases due to its ability to provide a 3-dimensional view of the vasculature which can be segmented in many ways to focus in on the circulation of a given anatomic region of the retina. We are currently in the phase of integration of this new technology into our practices.
