The authors report preliminary clinical results using an unique instrument which acquires and displays simultaneously an OCX image, a confocal image similar to that of a scanning laser ophthalmoscope and an indocyanine green fluorescence image. The three images are produced by three channels, an OCT and a confocal channel operating at 793 nm and a confocal channel tuned on the ICG fluorescence spectrum, which peaks at 835 nm. The system is based on our previously described ophthalmic Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)/confocal imaging system, where the same source is used to produce the OCT image and excite fluorescence in the ICG dye. The system is compact and assembled on a chin rest and it enables the clinician to visualise the same area of the eye fundus in terms of both en-face OCT slices and ICG angiograms, displayed at the same time. The images are collected by fast T-scanning (en-face) which are then used to build B-scan or C-scan images.
