Electroretinogram Recording and Interpreting the Response The clinical ERG is a mass response evoked from the entire retina by a brief flash of light. Five different responses are the basis of most clinical evaluations and are standardized internationally so that ERG results can be interpreted easily at different medical centers (Fig 3-1): 1.

Maximal combined response (dark-adapted) 33 1 .. _ T T T T Diagram of the 5 basic ERG responses defined by the International Standard for Electroretinography. These waveforms and calibrations are exemplary only, as there is a moderate range of normal values. The large arrowheads indicate the stimu lus flash, and the dashed lines show how to measure a-wave and b-wave amplitude and time-to-peak (implicit time, ,). The implicit time of a flicker response is normally less than the distance between peaks for stimulation at 30 Hz.

Differences include that NIR reflectance imaging demonstrates more clearly some abnormalities of the outer retina, RPE, and Bruch membrane, as well as the presence of subretinal fluid. This difference results from the ocular tissue's different absorption characteristics for visible light versus for light of longer wavelengths such as NIR. Lesions of acute macular neuroretinopathy are extremely difficult to appreciate on fundus photographs, a characteristic of the condition, and are much more easily visible with NIR reflectance imaging.
