—Two recent academy courses (1974) in which I was involved utilized an original teaching tool called a "flow sheet," representing a logical thought process for the interpretation of fluorescein angiograms. One of the courses pertained to the macula and was given along with J. Donald M. Gass and A. Edward Maumenee. The topic of the other course was fluorescein angiographic interpretation, and it was given with Thomas Burton, Maurice Rabb, and Lawrence Yannuzzi.Our experience at these courses demonstrated that the flow sheet was a valuable method for teaching the basics of understanding and using the fluorescein angiogram as an in vivo approach to gaining knowledge of posterior polar histopathology. Currently, Drs Burton, Rabb, Yannuzzi, and I are developing the flow sheet as part of a textbook and atlas to be published some time next year. The original version of the flow sheet used at the Academy
