Nonmydriatic Ultrawide Field Retinal Imaging Compared with Dilated Standard 7-Field 35-mm Photography and Retinal Specialist Examination for Evaluation of Diabetic Retinopathy
American Journal of Ophthalmology, 05/25/2012
Silva PS et al. – Nonmydriatic ultrawide field images compare favorably with dilated Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study 7–standard field 35–mm color 30–degree fundus photographs (ETDRS photography) and dilated fundus examination in determining diabetic retinopathy (DR) and diabetic macular edema severity; however, they are acquired more rapidly. If confirmed in broader diabetic populations, nonmydriatic ultrawide field imaging may prove to be beneficial in DR evaluation in research and clinical settings.
