Purpose: To evaluate the ability of retro mode illumination imaging for quantifying atrophy compared to confocal color fundus photography (c-CFP), green light fundus autofluorescence (G-FAF), blue light fundus autofluorescence (B-FAF) using the scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) Mirante device by Nidek (Nidek Co., Ltd, Gamogori, Japan). Methods: Eyes with clinical evidence of geographic atrophy (GA) associated with non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration, evaluated at the Doheny Eye Centers-UCLA and Hospital Sacco Milan, were included in this prospective, cross-sectional study. All eyes were imaged with multiple retinal imaging modalities using the SLO Nidek Mirante device: c-CFP, G-FAF, B-FAF, retro mode illumination deviated-right (RMDR), and deviated-left (RMDL). Masked graders measured the GA lesion on each modality and inter-modality and inter-grader repeatability were assessed. Results: The mean (SD) area of GA measured 9.76 (3.82) mm2, 9.75 (3.91) mm2, 9.76 (3.92) mm2, 9.82 (3.87) mm2, and 9.81 (3.86) mm2 using c-CFP, G-FAF, B-FAF, RMDR, and RMDL, respectively (p = 0.2). Inter-modality correlation was high (Pearson’s r > 0.9 and p < 0.0001). Agreement between graders was excellent for all modalities. Conclusions: Retro mode imaging demonstrated good agreement for measuring GA compared to other imaging modalities, with a high level of repeatability. Given that retro mode imaging uses infrared light and is comfortable, it may prove to be a useful tool for the assessment of GA in the clinic.

Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the ability of retro mode illumination imaging for quantifying atrophy compared to confocal color fundus photography (c-CFP), green light fundus autofluorescence (G-FAF), blue light fundus autofluorescence (B-FAF) using the scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) Mirante device by Nidek (Nidek Co., Ltd, Gamogori, Japan). Methods: Eyes with clinical evidence of geographic atrophy (GA) associated with non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration, evaluated at the Doheny Eye Centers-UCLA and Hospital Sacco Milan, were included in this prospective, cross-sectional study. All eyes were imaged with multiple retinal imaging modalities using the SLO Nidek Mirante device: c-CFP, G-FAF, B-FAF, retro mode illumination deviated-right (RMDR), and deviated-left (RMDL). Masked graders measured the GA lesion on each modality and inter-modality and inter-grader repeatability were assessed. Results: The mean (SD) area of GA measured 9.76 (3.82) mm2, 9.75 (3.91) mm2, 9.76 (3.92) mm2, 9.82 (3.87) mm2, and 9.81 (3.86) mm2 using c-CFP, G-FAF, B-FAF, RMDR, and RMDL, respectively (p = 0.2). Inter-modality correlation was high (Pearson’s r > 0.9 and p < 0.0001). Agreement between graders was excellent for all modalities. Conclusions: Retro mode imaging demonstrated good agreement for measuring GA compared to other imaging modalities, with a high level of repeatability. Given that retro mode imaging uses infrared light and is comfortable, it may prove to be a useful tool for the assessment of GA in the clinic.
