Abstract

Advances in imaging periodically lead to dramatic changes in the diagnosis, management, and study of retinal disease. For example, the innovation and wide-spread application of fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) have had tremendous impact on the management of retinal disorders.1,2 Recently, ultra-widefield (UWF) imaging has opened a new window into the retina, allowing the capture of greater than 80% of the fundus with a single shot.3 With montaging, much of the remaining retinal surface area can be captured.4,5 However, to maximize the potential of these new modalities, accurate quantification of the pathology they capture is critical.
