Wide-Field Fundus Autofluorescence Imaging of Retinitis Pigmentosa – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the clinical usefulness of wide-field fundus autofluorescence (FAF) imaging in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP).Design: Cross-sectional case series.Participants: Seventy-five eyes of 75 patients with RP.Methods: We examined the eyes of the RP patients using the Optos 200Tx imaging system (Optos PLC, Dunfermline, United Kingdom) and identified abnormal FAF patterns such as ring hyperautofluorescence and patchy hypoautofluorescent areas. Patients with hyperautofluorescent rings or foveal hyperautofluorescence were compared with those without such findings. We determined the percentage area occupied by the FAF abnormalities within a defined region of the eye and examined the relationship between the percentage area of (Read more...)
