Conclusion: Review strategies for detection of CNV on OCTA were highest using the manual segmentation method as compared to both the automated report and continuous slab descent methods. Although the manual segmentation method had a higher rate of detection, the practical aspects of the time required for segmentation make this method challenging in routine clinical practice.
Conclusion: Scan averaging of en face optical coherence tomography angiography images improves the clarity of vessels and may allow for more accurate quantification of vessel metrics. Quantitative metrics are significantly associated with BCVA, and averaging does not further improve this association compared with single-scan analysis.
By STEPHEN BORSTELMANN, MD Occasionally, you get handed a question you know little about, but it’s clear you need to know more. Like most of us these days, I was chatting with my colleagues about the novel coronavirus. It goes by several names: SARS-CoV-2, 2019-nCoV or COVID-19 but I’ll just call it COVID. Declared a pandemic on March 12, 2020 by the World Health Organization (WHO), COVID is diagnosed by laboratory test – PCR. The early PCR test used in Wuhan was apparently low sensitivity (30-60%), lengthy to run (days), and in short supply. As CT scanning was relatively availa...
CONCLUSIONS: CTA in FFBR can have a wider impact than facilitating surgical planning and reducing operative times. Incidental findings can influence the surgical plan, and in some instances, avoid doomed-to-fail and unsafe surgery. It is therefore important that these scans are reported by an experienced radiologist. PMID: 32203991 [PubMed]

Conclusion: Combination therapy was associated with a rapid and persistent resolution of subretinal fluid, improvement of best-corrected visual acuity, and visual stability at 4 years of follow-up.
To compare different scan protocols of wide field swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) for the detection of diabetic retinopathy (DR) lesions.
CONCLUSION: This study demonstrates that WF-OCTA has a higher detection rate of PDR than clinical examination. This suggests that this modality could be used non-invasively for the purpose of early detection and characterisation of neovascularisation. PMID: 32193221 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: The SWAN-venule technique is an optimized MR imaging sequence for highly sensitive detection of the central vein sign in MS brain lesions. This work will facilitate the validation and integration of the central vein sign to increase the diagnostic certainty of MS and further prevent misdiagnosis in clinical practice.
CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that the rat strain does not influence infarct volumes following MCAo. PMID: 32194078 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
