Young Hee Yoon: Technology Helps Save Time and Money in Diabetic Macular Edema Care

A recent study showed that OCT angiography can help predict whether patients will respond to treatment for diabetic macular edema. While the technology is not available everywhere and can be expensive the results can save patients and doctors time and money in the long run.

While attending the annual meeting of the American Society of Retina Specialists in San Francisco, Young Hee Yoon, Md, from Asan Medical Center said while the technology is not perfect for all diagnoses it can help in many cases in this patient population. Yoon said if the condition is caught early enough and the best treatment option is identified sooner rather than later it can make a considerable difference in the overall care picture.
