Diabetic Retinopathy with Cystoid Macular Edema and Underlying RPE Disruption
Share This Page:
Green and Yellow: Dot and Blot hemorrhages and exudates, which result from leaking microaneurysms, are easily visualized
Amber and Red: Superficial hemorrhages are less noticeable as we descend deeper into the retina
Red 2-4: Elevation associated with DME can now be seen
Red 3: RPE disruption is best seen using Red 3 and in this case indicates co-morbid underlying pathology. In addition to DR this patient has early AMD
Note: Underlying RPE disruption not seen in this case with IVFA, OCT or fundus camera
Detect diabetic retinopathy with underlying macular degeneration.
Multi-spectral imaging short and mid-range wavelengths are excellent at highlighting intraretinal dot and blot hemorrhages as well as exudates, associated with diabetic retinopathy. MSI also has an exceptional ability to illustrate edema and co-morbid overlapping disease such as RPE disruption and/or atrophy.
