WHAT IS FLUORESCEIN ANGIOGRAPHY (EYE FUNDUS) TEST?

WHAT IS FLUORESCEIN ANGIOGRAPHY (EYE FUNDUS) TEST?

A radiographic examination of the retinal vasculature after rapid injection of fluorescein dye. Fluorescein angiography provides rapid and direct acquisition of sequential images of the vasculature and the ability to manipulate the fluorescein images with the computer. For example, the processor can adjust for fluorescein leakage into the vitreous, cataracts, or cloudy corneas. It also provides the ability to display fluorescein images and colour fundus images for comparison during laser treatment. The rapidly available images are also used to help explain the disease process to the client being examined.
