Defocusing, vignetting, and bulk motion degrade the image quality of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) more significantly than structural OCT. The assessment of focus, alignment conditions, and stability of imaging subjects in commercially available OCTA systems are currently based on OCT signal quality alone, without knowledge of OCTA signal quality. This results in low yield rates for further quantification. In this Letter, we developed a novel OCTA platform based on a graphics processing unit (GPU) for a real-time, high refresh rate, B-san-by-B-scan split-spectrum amplitude-decorrelation angiography. The GPU provides a real-time display of both cross-sectional and en face images to assist operators during scan acquisition and ensure OCTA scan quality.
