Abstract Details

Purpose:

To determine if Annidis RHA MSI can easily detect RPE changes prior to the abnormality being easily detectable on clinical exam and on red-free or color photography.

Setting:

A clinical private practice setting

Methods:

Images of 88 eyes in which RPE was clinically judged to be minimally abnormal or within normal limits were imaged by MSI and compared with red-free and color images.

Results:

24 eyes were found to have abnormalities which were much more easily detected on MSI. Drusen and RPE changes were much more easily definable on the amber, red and infra-red wavelengths of the MSI

Conclusions:

MSI's amber, red and infra-red wavelength can enhance detection and visualization of early RPE abnormalities and enable clinicians to commence early treatiment of high risk population with neutraceuticals and other alternate therapies.
