A fluorescein angiogram produces photographs (not X-rays) of
the blood vessels inside the eye. It can be used to observe the structure of
abnormal blood vessels under the retina and to detect circulatory and other
problems in the eyes.
A dye called fluorescein is injected into
the bloodstream. And a camera takes photos that can show if a person has
abnormal blood vessels or leaks in the blood vessels of the eyes.
