Understanding Fluorescein Angiography, Fluoreszeinangiografie Verstehen, Entendiendo Angiografia Con Fluoresceina by Manfred Spitznas

Fluorescein angiography is an indispensable tool in ophthalmology. It is founded on the evaluation of phenomena related to the behavior intravenously administered sodium fluorescein in the tissues of the ocular fundus. This book deals with the morphological prerequisites and structural changes on which the individual phenomena are based. It provides the retina specialist, the general ophthalmologist, and the basic scientist with valuable information toward understanding the nature and mechanism of the underlying disorders.


From the reviews: This is a short atlas style text, which sets out to present the underlying basis for the appearances seen on fluorescein angiography in normal and pathological states. ... This is an interesting book that uses many micrographic pictures and diagrams to illustrate the ultrastructure of the retina and choroid and relate this to fluorescein appearances. The pictures and diagrams are of excellent quality. (Rachel Barnes Franzco, Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, 2006) The aim of this multi-language book is to provide an insight into basic phenomena of fluorescein angiography. ... The excellent illustrations are the highlight of this book. ... The book aims to give retina specialists, general ophthalmologists, and basic scientists valuable information on the principles of fluorescein angiography. ... Overall, the book is well-written, concise, and illustrated with excellent material. It is an excellent explanation of the basic mechanics behind fluorescein angiography. (Sebastian Wolf, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 145, 2007)
