Eyes with macular ischemia demonstrate reduced capillary perfusion density

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Eyes determined to have macular ischemia by masked qualitative grading of OCT angiography showed a statistically significant decline in capillary perfusion density values when compared with patients in a normal cohort, a speaker said here.
Using the AVATAR study, researchers compared OCTA capillary perfusion density (CPD) measurements in normal eyes and eyes with macular ischemia. Researchers correlated macular CPD measurements with qualitative assessments of ischemia severity and functional measures, Amy S. Babiuch, MD, said at the Retina World Congress.
