by Amresh Chopdar

Fluorescein angiography plays an important role in the management of many retinal disorders which evaluates the pathology of the retina. On the other hand recently introduced Indocyanine green angiography mainly explores the pathology affecting the choroid. This book provides the essential guidance on both the methods and emphasises the differences between the two systems. Based on 25 years of annual teaching course run by the author, the coverage includes all the common and many rare conditions of the retina and the choroid. This is the third such publication on the subject since 1996 by the author. The book starts with a short history of development followed by basic principles, technique of performing a successful angiography and step by step guidance for interpretation. It explains the theory behind modern digital angiography. Each topic begins with a short clinical description of the disease involve followed by the fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography pattern including variations where applicable. The use of colour photographs with superb illustrations of sequence of angiograms and legends makes this an outstanding feature. The book contains over 525 illustrations. Trainee ophthalmologists and those who are embarking to setup a new service would find this book an essential read. Those with more experience will want to keep the book to hand as a valuable source of reference.
