Imaging technology has steadily evolved over the last two decades and has determined a major paradigm shift in the diagnosis and management of retinal diseases.

This video takes us again to the Institut de la Màcula in Barcelona, where Dr. Jordi Monés and his team teach us how to analyze, compare and combine images from multiple imaging modalities, for the purpose of understanding ‘in depth’ the changes occurring in eyes with age-related macular degeneration.

Morphological biomarkers of the disease and their longitudinal evolution are shown and described as they appear on color fundus photography, OCT, fluorescein angiography and other imaging modalities.  Imaging findings are correlated with symptoms, also through the voice of patients.

Mastering multimodal image analysis is nowadays a crucial step in the training of retina specialists and technicians.  This video offers a practical guide, and leads us to look at the pathophysiology of AMD from a new, more dynamic perspective, that overcomes the old categorization of ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ disease.
