Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Eyes with Non-infectious Posterior Uveitis; Some Practical Aspects

Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is an innovative imaging technology enabling clinicians to learn more about the pathophysiology of disease processes as it facilitates visualization of the retinal and choroidal circulation without injection of a dye. Also it provides ample qualitative and quantitative data on the vascular supply. OCTA has become an important tool nowadays in the diagnosis and follow-up of patients with age-related macular degeneration, inherited chorioretinal diseases, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular occlusive diseases and optic nerve disorders. However, its place is relatively less known in non-infectious posterior uveitis (NIPU). OCTA may help mainly in assessing macular and peripheric retinal perfusion status, detection of retinal and/or disc neovascularization, diagnose of inflammatory choroidal neovascularization and visualizing the uveitic white-dot lesions. This mini-review describes the use of OCTA in patients with NIPU and summarizes some practical points in several uveitic entities.
