The application of a new miniaturized television camera, beam splitter, and optical relay in conjuction with the Zeiss retinal camera for recording and taping fluorescein angiograms is presented. There are advantages to television over conventional photography: rapid replay of angiography tapes for evaluation and Polaroid abstraction is easily accomplished. The use of computer enhancement of data in available electrical form is suggested. Tapes are easily filed and recovered for recording and teaching purposes.
