This book is the first attempt to provide information on retinal and choroidal findings using advanced imaging technologies in systemic diseases This book is intended for ophthalmologists, retina specialists, uveitis specialists, ocular oncologists and internal medicine specialists The systemic conditions discussed are neurological diseases, systemic vasculitis, drug toxicity, blood dyscrasias, renal diseases, systemic trauma, cancer-related retinopathy, immunologic diseases, phakomatoses, Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada Disease (VKH), and Pregnancy
This book explains the underlying rationale for retinal and choroidal imaging in the context of systemic diseases. Various systemic diseases involve the eyes, and for some, the eyes could provide the first clue to their presence. Advances in posterior segment imaging have significantly improved our understanding of the pathophysiology and management of posterior segment diseases. However, imaging techniques like enhanced depth imaging, oximetry, adaptive optics, and retinal blood flowmetry have remained largely unexplored in connection with systemic diseases. Enhancing the available literature on the use of such imaging techniques for various systemic diseases, this handbook will help readers understand their pathomechanisms, supporting early diagnosis and more targeted therapeutic approaches. As such, it offers an essential resource for ophthalmologists, especially those with predominantly vitreo-retinal and uvea experience.
