Fluorescence angiography

Fluorescence angiography is used in ophthalmology as an imaging method to diagnose vascular diseases on the ocular fundus. In this case, the nature of the blood vessels within the retina is visualized by injection of flourescein as a contrast agent dye and, if necessary, diagnosed retinal diseases. The fluorescence angiography is an invasive procedure and is therefore used only in special cases, as theoretically can cause side effects for the patient.
