Imaging Guide: A Deeper Dive Into Geographic Atrophy

A comprehensive eye examination with imaging can help with early
detection, diagnosis, and monitoring of the progression of age-related
macular degeneration (AMD) to geographic atrophy.1,2 To help eye care professionals become more acquainted with the importance of imaging, Iveric Bio has created an eight-page guide called Geographic Atrophy (GA): Imaging Guide for Early Detection and Monitoring.

Detection and monitoring of AMD progression to GA can be achieved using imaging modalities such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), fundus autofluorescence (FAF), and color fundus photography (CFP).1

This guide focuses on intermediate and late AMD, which are more likely to be the symptomatic stages of the disease.3

The guide shows how the different imaging technologies can be used to identify, document and manage different stages of GA. GA is an advanced form of dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and isdefined by the presence of sharply demarcated atrophic lesions of the retinal pigment epithelium and outer retina.1,2
