This Ophthalmic Image shows a new choroidal vessel on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in a man in his 60s.

Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography detects choroidal neovascularization by its indirect effects on the retina.1 However, actual subretinal pigment epithelium (RPE) (type 1) or subretinal (type 2)2 new vessels often are not noted.

Detection of a new choroidal vessel on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. A, Indocyanine green angiography shows 2 vessels crossing an area of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) atrophy. B, Optical coherence tomography through the upper vessel shows type 1 neovascularization. Blue arrowheads show the direction of the B-scan; red arrowhead points to the actual new vessel.
