ARVO 2023 – rtx1 users present new clinical findings

This year, users of the rtx1 AO cameras will introduce new biomarkers and methods for AO studies, as well as novel clinical findings in non-neovascular AMD and in IRDs. They will report on cellular phenotypes, structure-function relations, and therapeutical outcomes assessed at the microvascular level.
For the titles listed below, abstracts are available here, and session hours are in local time.
