OCT-Angiography can be used to detect decreased retinal vascular density in multiple sclerosis patients. In the study conducted by Roberta Lanzillo et al. from the University of Naples, was found that there was a significant decrease in the retinal vessel density in the measurements made with OCT-Angio (OCT-A) in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. In the study, 50 patients with MS with or without history of optic neuritis and 46 healthy eyes without any neurological or ophthalmological pathology were analyzed comparatively. This pioneering study conducted in the field of neurology with OCT-A, a new imaging technology, was published in the Multiple Sclerosis Journal and was found that OCT-A can be used in various neurological pathologies.
