This video asserts that the advent of noncontact, wide-angle retinal imaging systems has facilitated the use of fluorescein angiography (FA) on pediatric patients in the clinical setting without the need for general anesthesia. FA can be used to detect occult retinal vasculitis in patients who appear quiet based solely on clinical exam. If additional uveitis activity is detected on FA, titration of medications is warranted.
