The angiography allows us to observe and photograph the retina, the optic nerve and the back of the eye. In the examination of ocular fundus images obtained are in full color and high resolution, thus allowing to see in detail all the fundus. As the captured images are obtained in color, the test is sometimes also known as fundus photography.
The equipment used in angiography is called retinographer.
What is the retina?The eye resembling a ball being located in front of the pupil of the eye. The pupil is the aperture that allows light to enter and go to the "fundus". Here is the retina (the back of the eye). This plays an important role in vision. The retina converts images into electrical signals and transmits them via the optic nerve to the brain.Retinography ExamThe images obtained in the examination of angiography are a valuable aid in the diagnosis of certain eye diseases. On the other hand, the photos obtained in ocular fundus are saved and allow document the development of a particular pathology, thus enabling make a closer monitoring of the patient and follow the effectiveness of treatment of the underlying pathology.The fundus today allows image capture in digital format for high resolution. For this reason it is often also known as digital angiography.
The test may be performed on only one eye (monocular fundus) and then be done to both eyes (binocular fundus).
