In the Journal of AAPOS, researchers described the first case report of the use of oral fluorescein and Optos noncontact ultra-widefield (UWF™) fundus and angiographic imaging in an office setting on a non-sedated infant with incontinentia pigmenti. The UWF imaging system also correctly identified retinal neovascularization and avascular retinal zones, which subsequently permitted targeted laser treatment of retinal capillary nonperfused areas. This approach is less invasive for pediatric patients, obviates the potential risks associated with IV fluorescein and enables the review of both healthy and diseased retinal vasculature in a single image.
