Fundamentals of Fluorescein Angiography

Since its introduction in the early 1960's, fluorescein angiography has proved to be an essential tool for diagnosis of many retinal disorders. This course will provide an overview of the use of fluorescein for diagnosing eye related diseases and conditions and include appropriate doses for adult and pediatric patients. Awareness of the side effects, adverse reactions, and complications of the contrast agent allow the ophthalmic healthcare team to anticipate, respond quickly, and support the patient before, during, and following the angiographic procedure using fluorescein.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the physical phenomenon of fluorescence and its uses in ophthalmic photography.
  • Discuss common adverse reactions and possible interventions during angiography.
  • List three conditions for which fluorescein angiography may help determine therapy/treatment.
