Fundus Fluorescein and Indocyanine Green Angiography: A Textbook and Atlas is a complete and detailed reference that comprehensively covers fluorescein angiography, the more recent and advancing indocyanine green angiography and their effectiveness in identifying and evaluating various retinal diseases.

Prof. Amar Agarwal has teamed up with more than 30 retina specialists to provide eyecare professionals with the most current and essential information for the successful employment and accurate interpretation of these vital diagnostic tests.

Sections inside the book include:
• Basics and principles
• Macular diseases
• Vascular retinal diseases
• Non vascular retinal diseases
• Optic nerve disorders

This timely reference uses a unique textbook and atlas format to convey its key points and includes over 550 images and photographs to provide a visual representation of the disease process. Also included is an accompanying CD-ROM with over 35 minutes of supplemental video.

Topics on video CD-ROM include:
• Fundus fluorescein angiography
• Indocyanine green angiography
• Optical coherence tomography
• Mirror telescopic IOL for macular degenerations

With fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography continuing to grow as important and critical diagnostic tests, Fundus Fluorescein and Indocyanine Green Angiography: A Textbook and Atlas will keep ophthalmologists, retina specialists, and optometrists on the cutting edge in today's fast-paced and ever-changing industry.

Some topics covered inside include:

About the author (2007)

Prof. Amar Agarwal, MS, FRCS, FRCOphth is the pioneer of the phakonit procedure, which is phako with needle incision technology. This technique became popularized as bimanual phaco, microincision cataract surgery (MICS) or microphaco. He is the first to remove cataracts through a 0.7-mm tip with the technique called microphakonit. He has also discovered no anesthesia cataract surgery and FAVIT, a new technique to remove dropped nuclei. The use of an air pump, which was a simple idea of using an aquarium fish pump to increase the fluid into the eye in bimanual phaco and coaxial phaco, has helped prevent surge. This formed the basis of various techniques of forced infusion for small incision cataract surgery. Prof. Agarwal was also the first to use trypan blue for staining epiretinal membranes and published the details in his four volume Textbook of Ophthalmology. He has also discovered a new refractive error called Aberropia. He is the first to do a combined surgery of microphakonit (700- cataract surgery) with a 25-gauge vitrectomy in the same patient, thus having the smallest incisions possible for cataract and vitrectomy. He is also the first surgeon to implant a new mirror telescopic intraocular lens (LMI) for patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration. Prof. Agarwal has received many awards for his work done in ophthalmology, most significant being the Barraquer Award and the Kelman Award. His videos have won many awards at the film festivals of ASCRS and ESCRS. He has also written more than 40 books, which have been published in various languages including English, Spanish and Polish. In his center, he also trains doctors from all over the world on phaco, bimanual phaco, LASIK, and the retina. He is also Professor of Ophthalmology at Ramachandra Medical College in Chennai, India.
