Choroidal imaging in uveitis: An update.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

An important goal of advancements in ocular imaging algorithms and devices has been to improve the image acquisition and resolution of deeper ocular tissues, namely the choroid and its vasculature that are otherwise inaccessible to direct clinical examination. These advancements have contributed to the understanding of the pathophysiology of a number of ocular inflammatory conditions. We focus on the imaging characteristics of clinical conditions where imaging the choroid has improved or radically changed the understanding of the disease, has helped in differentiation of phenotypically similar but distinct lesions, and where imaging features have proven vital for monitoring disease activity. The last two decades have seen some major developments in ocular imaging relevant to uveitis. The current review addresses both the imaging characteristics and their interpretation on conventional modalities such as fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, and fundus autofluorescence and the recent additions in the armamentarium including optical coherence tomography (OCT) with enhanced depth imaging, swept-source OCT, and OCT angiography.
