About these proceedings

Introduction

Rapid or even dramatic progress has been made in the field of AMD over recent years, leading to a constant revision of basic concepts. A wide range of fundus imaging modalities are now available, and this book explains the respective value of each technique. The information provided by OCT is presented logically by comparison with plain films, autofluorescence, fluorescein angiography, or indocyanine green angiography. Meticulous biomicroscopic examination of macular changes and the essential value of fluorescein angiography for the detection of anatomical alterations of the macula and for precise evaluation of lesions and their course by indocyanine green angiography have naturally led the author Gabriel Coscas to analyze the new data provided by OCT.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This excellent book on age-related macular degeneration is replete with high-resolution images of this complex retinal disease. … Ophthalmology residents and practitioners will benefit from this well organized text-atlas. … This is a very useful text-atlas for ophthalmologists learning to interpret OCT images of patients with age-related macular degeneration. The variety of images and depth of information distinguish this publication from OCT books that focus on a wider spectrum of macular diseases." (Daniel V. Will, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2009)

“This book provides a thorough demonstration of the use of different forms of imaging in the diagnosis and management of macular degeneration. … book certainly provides plenty of illustrations to give weight to this argument. … the main benefit of the book is the large number of illustrated cases which should provide a useful resource for photographers and clinicians both demonstrating the quality of photographs that can be obtained and aiding with their interpretation.” (James Talks, Eye News, February/March, 2010)
