    Comprehensive Ophthalmology

    This is part 2 of a 3-part presentation titled, "How to Interpret Fundus Fluorescein Angiography and Autofluorescence," which teaches how to interpret fundus fluorescein angiography (FA) and fundus autofluorescence images (FAF). A step-by-step guide is used, supported by (1) targeted review of the retinochoroidal anatomy, (2) illustrations to acquire a “visual” understanding of fluorescence patterns, and (3) numerous FA and FAF images correlating these patterns with fundus findings. The majority of vascular, degenerative, inflammatory, hereditary, and tumoral chorioretinal pathologies will be reviewed, and the audience will be taught how to recognize these diseases based on the imagery. Viewers will be empowered with the know-how to recognize and interpret the angiographic and autofluorescent features of the majority of chorioretinal pathologies and to recognize these disease entities based on the angiographic and autofluorescence findings.

    Part 1: Degenerative Disease: Fluorescein Angiography
    Part 2: Fluorescein Angiography In the Management of Uveitis
    Part 3: Fundus Autofluorescence
