This book is designed to be the primary resource for clinicians and researchers looking for information on posterior segment imaging. The book summarizes and reviews imaging technologies which have emerged over the past 20 years, emphasizing those developed in the last three years. It also discusses technologies currently in the developmental or experimental stage. The book is organized topically by imaging modality, but each chapter discusses the disease process in the context of the imaging techniques. The chapters compare and contrast these techniques and discuss their advantages and disadvantages, ultimately recommending the best modality given the particular situation. Over 450 images, 137 in full color, complement the text.
