Images from a patient with amaurosis fugax patient and emboli. While not clearly visible in the infrared image (A), white particles appear on the OCT line scan (B). They extend to the outer plexiform layer, the terminal capillaries of the central retinal artery. With multicolor imaging, multiple talc emboli can be seen (C).

In this article, Dr. Robert Sergott highlights the value of SPECTRALIS multicolor OCT imaging in the diagnosis and management of patients with systemic disease. Based on his extensive experience in neuro-ophthalmology, he provides tips and examples for applying this advanced imaging in the diagnosis of emboli and vaso-occlusive disease, neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, and dermatomyositis.
