Optic disc drusen (ODD) are calcified masses in the prelaminar optic nerve head seen in up to 2% of the population. Although the pathophysiology is not fully understood, altered microvascularization could both be part of the pathogenesis and a consequence of ODD.[1] We developed a method that combines information from optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography regarding peripapillary vessel density along with information from enhanced depth imaging OCT about anatomical ODD location and volume [Figure 1]. In this patient, the majority of the ODD volume is located nasally and in the adjacent peripapillary section wherein the vessel density is correspondingly lower.
Figure 1: (a) Fundus photo of the left optic disc with visible ODD. (b) Corresponding en face OCT angiogram where the peripapillary region is divided into 6 Garway-Heath map sections. Each violet shade represents the vessel density within the section. The volume and location of the ODD is represented as a height map using a blue-red color scale. (c) Enhanced depth imaging OCT shows a characteristic hyporeflective structure with a hyperreflective rim consistent with ODD. (d) The segmented ODD is colored blue
