Dr Pierre Amalric of Albi, France, initiated the first international congress on fluorescein angiography of the eye in 1969. This was such a success that these international symposia have now become a well-recognized gathering for all those interested in fluorescein angiography. The 1976 conference was held in Ghent under the chairmanship of Prof J. Francosis and was organized by Dr J.J. DeLaey. The symposium lasted for four days and brought ophthalmologists from all over the world to Belgium. The transactions reflect the present status of the art in fluorescein angiography of the eye and should be a valuable resource for all those who work in this field.
The first part of the symposium was concerned with techniques. Here the new wide-angle cameras were shown, and their pictures were exhibited. The panoramic views offer great advantage, and this type of photography is a valuable supplement to the routine pictures.
