Ultra-widefield imaging may improve ability to diagnose, monitor, treat diabetic retinopathy

VIENNA — Ultra-widefield retinal imaging is a viable option that may improve the efficiency of diagnostics for diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema, according to one specialist. Standard methods for assessment and follow-up of DR and DME have included fluorescein angiography, fundus photography and optical coherence tomography. However, novel ultra-widefield (UWF) scanning laser technology (Optos) allows wide-angle visualization that includes peripheral areas of the retina.
