    Stereo Atlas of Fluorescein and Indocyanine Green Angiography. By PJ Saine, ME Tyler. Pp 147; £70. Oxford: Butterworth-Heinemann, 1999. ISBN 0-7506-7001-0.

    The aim of this atlas is to provide an insight into stereoscopic angiography, whether it is with fluorescein or indocyanine green. All the stereo illustrations use anaglyph technology and are viewed with the red/cyan glasses provided. The first two of its seven chapters are technical explaining both how to perform and how to interpret stereo ocular angiography. The remaining five chapters provide examples of various retinal diseases.

    Most people purchasing this book would probably do so with a view to learning how to perform and interpret stereoscopic fluorescein angiograms of choroidal neovascular membrane formation in age related macular degeneration. This has become particularly important with the advent of photodynamic therapy. Unfortunately this book is not the answer. The first two chapters are well laid out and are informative but the latter chapters are not detailed enough. If you have not seen stereoscopic angiography before then this book is of interest, but most readers will not be satisfied and will be looking for another textbook to meet their needs.
