Improving the cost-effectiveness of photographic screening for diabetic macular oedema: a prospective, multi-centre, UK study. - The British journal of ophthalmology
Retinal screening programmes in England and Scotland have similar photographic grading schemes for background (non-proliferative) and proliferative diabetic retinopathy, but diverge over maculopathy. We looked for the most cost-effective method of identifying diabetic macular oedema from retinal photographs including the role of automated grading and optical coherence tomography, a technology that directly visualises oedema.Patients from seven UK centres were recruited. The following features in at least one eye were required for enrolment: microaneurysms/dot haemorrhages or blot haemorrhages within one disc diameter, or exudates within one or two disc diameters of the centre of the macula. Subjects had optical coherence tomography and digital photography. Manual and automated grading schemes were evaluated. Costs and QALYs were modelled using microsimulation techniques.3540 patients were recruited, 3170 were analysed. For diabetic macular oedema, England's scheme had a sensitivity of 72.6% and specificity of 66.8%; Scotland's had a sensitivity of 59.5% and specificity of 79.0%. When applying a ceiling ratio of £30,000 per quality adjusted life years (QALY) gained, Scotland's scheme was preferred. Assuming automated grading could be implemented without increasing grading costs, automation produced a greater number of QALYS for a lower cost than England's scheme, but was not cost effective, at the study's operating point, compared with Scotland's. The addition of optical coherence tomography, to each scheme, resulted in cost savings without reducing health benefits.Retinal screening programmes in the UK should reconsider the screening pathway to make best use of existing and new technologies.Published by the BMJ Publishing Group Limited.

Bilateral 'vitelliform-like' macular lesions in a patient with multiple myeloma. - BMJ case reports
A 73-year-old woman was referred to the eye clinic in February 2005 with reduced vision in both eyes. On examination, her visual acuity was 20/40, N6 right eye and 20/64, N6 left eye. Bilateral unusual 'vitelliform-like' lesions at the macula (accumulation of yellow material in the subretinal space), which demonstrated blocked fluorescence on fluorescein angiography and a lack of increased autofluorescence signal on fundus autofluorescence imaging, were detected. The patient was followed-up until April 2007 when retinal haemorrhages were detected and blood work-up was undertaken; during this follow-up period the material present at the macula progressively disappeared. As a result of the blood work-up, the diagnosis of multiple myeloma was established; the macular lesions were thought to relate to the latter disease and represent subretinal deposition of immunoglobulin.
