ICG Angiography

ICGA signs in APMPPE/AMIC are characterized by unevenly sized geographic hypofluores-cent areas randomly scattered in the posterior pole present in the early and intermediate phase of angiography but very distinctly visible in the late ICG angiographic phase (Fig. 14.3 a). On follow-up angiograms these signs resolve almost completely with the exception of a few areas of persisting hypofluorescence due to chorioreti-nal atrophy [48]. Because the pattern of hypo-fluorescence is so characteristic, most authors that published ICGA studies on APMPPE concluded that lesions were due to primary choroidal vascular disease [2], choroidal vascular occlusion [48] or hypoperfusion [1], confirming what some authors had already suspected on the base of fluorescein angiography showing choriocapillaris perfusion delay [9, 10]. ICGA gave us the additional information not available from fluorescein angiography, namely that the choriocapillaris perfusion delay seen on fluorescein angiography corresponds indeed to choriocapillaris non-perfusion.
