Diabetic Retinopathy is a concise guide to the condition caused by complications of diabetes, which can eventually lead to blindness. The book is edited by a team of experts from the Italian Macular Centre in Rome, led by Prof Bruno Lumbroso.
Divided into ten chapters, the book begins with basic information on diabetes and diabetic retinopathy. Further chapters demonstrate how to read and interpret different forms of imaging, including fluorescein angiography, cross-section OCT, and `en-face' OCT. Information on the use of the most recent OCT angiography imaging techniques brings this book fully up to date.
73 full colour images and illustrations enhance the text, which highlights the importance of clinical imaging in everyday treatment of diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic Retinopathy is an essential guide to imaging and treatment for ophthalmologists and optometrists.
