Abstract

Indocyanine angiography outlines angioid streaks as well as the peau d'orange appearance better than fluorescein angiography in the majority of cases. In some cases, however, funduscopically visible streaks can not be visualized. Sometimes classic choroidal neovascular membranes are not visualized by conventional indocyanine green angiography. Occult choroidal neovascularization is better defined by indocyanine green angiography. The fluorescence of angioid streaks and of plaque-like lesions makes the interpretation of indocyanine green angiography difficult.
