Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Radiation chorioretinopathy, radiation maculopathy, and radiation optic neuropathy are the major complications of ophthalmic radiotherapy. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCTA) are revolutionary imaging methods, allowing the visualization of the retinal cellular architecture and the retinal vascular system, respectively. In recent years this multimodal imaging approach has been applied to several retinal disease, but its role in the clinical characterization of retinal complications secondary to ophthalmic radiotherapy has not yet been defined. The purpose of this review is to critically evaluate the role of OCT and OCTA in the clinical assessment of radiation-induced chorioretinopathy, maculopathy, and optic neuropathy.
