VISUCAM FAF Case Studies

See our technology in action

Fundus autofluorescence imaging (FAF) is a noninvasive diagnostic technique. FAF delivers images of superb quality for diagnosing specific retinal diseases such as the progression of dry AMD. The valuable information they provide enable clear diagnoses in support of treatments and follow-up.


Geographic atrophy (GA)

An 80-year-old woman with bilateral progressive visual acuity loss. Well-defined macular hypofluorescent area with slight autofluorescence at the edges (see white arrows), in a patient suffering advanced age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). Other alterations of RPE with mixed pattern will be visible in the circled areas.

Retinitis pigmentosa

A 44-year-old male with nyctalopia, concentric reduction of visual field. Diagnosis of sporadic retinitis pigmentosa without known familial involvement. Severe alteration of RPE in a patient with retinitis pigmentosa showing an extensive hypo-autofluorescent pattern that extends to vascular arches. A hyperfluorescent ring in the macular area can also be seen.

Retinitis Pigmentosa

Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy

A 38-year-old male with multiple episodes of CSC displaying several rounded areas with hyperautofluorescent granular pattern with some hypoautofluorescent spots indicative of chronic alteration of RPE, practically undetectable in the color image.

Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy

Pattern Dystrophy

A 68-year-old male with a slight decrease in bilateral visual acuity. Autofluorescence image showing a pattern of butterfly-shaped area with increased intensity (pattern dystrophy) in a patient suffering associated asteroid hyalosis. The typical white spots of vitreous opacities of hyalosis (arrows) are visible in all images except the FAF image.

Pattern Dystrophy

Punctate inner Choroidopathy (PIC)

A 32-year-old hyperopic man (PCVA RE: c.d. 1m LE: 1); Multiple small hypofluorescent points (yellow arrows) with a hypofluorescent juxtafoveolar lesion surrounded by a hyperfluorescent halo (white arrow), in a patient with neovascular type 2 membrane associated with inner punctate choroidopathy.
