Angio OCT
The difference in a signal obtained at the same site of the retina through the emission and reception of the “laser scan” corresponds to the movement of blood within the vessels of the retina. Complex eyes correction systems (referred to as “eye tracking”) allow the elimination of any “noise” produced by involuntary eye movements and, through complex and elaborate algorithms, obtain very detailed images of the retinal vascular plexus.
This examination is very useful in the studies of vascular diseases of the retina and choroid, such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Diabetic Retinopathy and Retinal Venous Occlusion, among other frequent pathologies.
The Instituto de Microcirurgia Ocular has the latest generation of software to perform Angio – OCT (OCT A), which is systematically performed according to the manufacturer (Heidelberg Engineering) standards, allowing, with a non-invasive and comfortable way for the patient, to obtain images of the circulation of the retina in its different plexus with a level of resolution that is almost anatomical due to the fact of how precise it is.

COVID – 19

AOS DOENTES DO IMO

Em conjunto com todos os Portugueses, estamos comprometidos em vencer o surto de coronavírus (COVID-19), sendo a prevenção e a segurança, a nossa parte nesta missão.

Por isso, e seguindo as determinações dos peritos e das entidades governamentais, vamos reduzir ao mínimo a circulação de doentes nas instalações do IMO.

O seguimento dos nossos doentes com patologia urgente será garantido, mas para bem de todos, teremos de o fazer de forma diferente.

Assim, a partir de 16/03/2020, apenas atenderemos casos urgentes e sempre com atendimento médico telefónico prévio.
