Fluorescein Angiography versus Optical Coherence Tomography for Diagnosis of Uveitic Macular Edema – Corrected Proof

Objective: To evaluate agreement between fluorescein angiography (FA) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) results for diagnosis of macular edema in patients with uveitis.Design: Multicenter cross-sectional study.Participants: Four hundred seventy-nine eyes with uveitis from 255 patients.Methods: The macular status of dilated eyes with intermediate uveitis, posterior uveitis, or panuveitis was assessed via Stratus-3 OCT and FA. To evaluate agreement between the diagnostic approaches, κ statistics were used.Main Outcome Measures: Macular thickening (MT; center point thickness, ≥240 μm per reading center grading of OCT images) and macular leakage (ML; central subfield fluorescein leakage, ≥0.44 disc areas per reading center grading of FA (Read more...)
