Detecting changes in retinal vasculature density in people with multiple sclerosis

Takeaway

  • Reduced densities of the retinal superficial vascular plexus (SVP) were correlated with reduced visual function, longer disease durations, and higher levels of disability in people with multiple sclerosis (pwMS).

Why this matters ?

  • Retinal imaging of the SVP by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a rapid, non-invasive method and correlates with visual function and disability in pwMS.
