Review Quotes
From the reviews:"This book … gives readers a comprehensive overview of the physiological and anatomic changes leading to fundus autofluorescence. … The book is enriched with hundreds of high quality illustrations and fundus autofluorescence pictures as well as color pictures, fluorescein angiography and some microperimetry. The table of contents is comprehensive and clear. Each chapter is followed by a large and updated list of references. … We can thoroughly recommend this book to general ophthalmologists as well as retina specialists." (Michaela Goldstein and Anat Loewenstein, Grafe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 247, 2009)

Main Description
During recent years, FAF (Fundus autofluorescence) imaging has been shown to be useful in various retinal diseases with regard to diagnostics, documentation of changes, identification of disease progression, and monitoring of novel therapies. Hereby, FAF imaging gives additional information above and beyond conventional imaging tools.This unique atlas provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of FAF imaging in retinal diseases. It also compares FAF findings with other imaging techniques such asfundus photograph, fluorescein- and ICG angiography as well as optical coherence tomography.General ophthalmologists as well as retina specialists will find this a very useful guide which illustrates typical FAF characteristics of various retinal diseases.
