2010 PROSE Awards Winner, Clinical Medicine! Dr. Lawrence A. Yannuzzi brings together the most complete retinal atlas ever. Over 5,000 illustrations of the latest imaging and research findings essential for effective diagnosis of retinal disorders populate The Retinal Atlas. A unique layout consisting of optimally positioned panoramic images, magnified photos, and histopathological specimens illustrate key manifestations, giving you the best visual display of each disease. In addition, composite images using different retinal imaging modalities, including the latest in optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green (ICG), and fundus autofluorescence display how a disease appears in each imaging modality, allowing you to compare imaging methods and gain a better understanding of each disorder. The Atlas is the ideal resource for all retinal specialists, comprehensive ophthalmologists, and other eye care personnel.

• Features complete, comprehensive coverage of all vitreous, retina, and macula diseases, assimilating old and new photos for effective diagnosis at early and later stages of each disorder.

• Covers all new imaging methods used to present and illustrate retinal diseases, including the latest on ophthalmic coherence tomography, indocyanine green angiography, fluorescein angiography, and fundus autofluorescence, keeping you up to date with new, developing, and cutting edge imaging techniques to match evolving diagnosis and treatment methods.

• Incorporates arrows and guides into the images that point to key lesions for a more accurate identification of disorders.

• Provides a unique design using composite layouts that incorporate various forms of disease presentation, including high-power views and the latest panoramic photos, offering an enhanced understanding of the full spectrum of disorders.

• Offers concise coverage of key histopathology findings, providing an improved understanding of the clinico-pathological relationships and selected references for additional readings.

• Presents a select team of industry experts, all of whom are true international leaders in their sub-specialty areas, and have assisted in contributing to the diverse library of common and rare case photos.

The last half-century has witnessed an explosive expansion in our knowledge of chorioretinal diseases and has generated a multidisciplinary spectrum of retinal specialists: medical-retina, vitreoretinal surgeons, oncologists, pediatric ophthalmologists, and pathologists, to name a few. No one author could hope to do more than coordinate, catalyze, and conceptualize this atlas, which is meant to be comprehensive and authoritative. It was necessary to assemble experts in the various subspecialties to contribute cases to fill gaps in the material I’ve accumulated over my long career. These experts have made numerous contributions in visual science, medical-retina, oncology, pediatrics, and vitreoretinal surgery with a level of expertise and experience I could not have achieved on my own. I’m pleased to say that over the years I’ve enjoyed a close friendship, originating initially from a common interest in diseases of the retina, with each of the contributing authors: Dr. William Benson and Dr. K. Bailey Freund for medical-retinal and surgical cases; Dr. W. Richard Green for retinal pathology; Dr. H. Richard McDonald for retinal detachments; Dr. William Mieler for retinal toxicities; Dr. Carol Shields and Dr. Jerry Shields for chorioretinal oncology; and Dr. Michael Trese for pediatric retinal abnormalities. I also obtained important contributions from the gifted ophthalmic photographer, Richard Hackel, CRA, who was among the first to assemble panoramic photographs of the retina, and does so with exceptional results – his images stand out among the very best in quality and educational content in the atlas. I also received contributions from numerous other retinal specialists, who are acknowledged in the figure legends, of which, several require special attention, including Dr. David Abramson (oncology), Dr. Norman Byers (peripheral retinal degeneration), Dr. Emmett Cunningham (inflammation), Dr. Morton Goldberg (persistent fetal vasculature), Dr. Sohan Singh Hayreh (non-arteritis ischemic optic neuropathy), Dr. Alessandro Iannaccone (hereditary chorioretinal dystrophy), Dr. Lee Jampol (retinal vascular), Dr. Mark Johnson (medical retina), Dr. Hermann Schubert (histopathology) Dr. Koichi Shimizu (Takayasu disease), and Dr. Stephen Tsang (hereditary chorioretinal dystrophies). I tried to organize all of their images to provide a reasonable level of conformity for each section without compromising the originality and style of the individual contributor.
I personally owe a great deal to the physicians in my professional group, the Vitreous-Retina-Macula Consultants of New York, including Dr. Michael Cooney, Dr. Yale Fisher, Dr. K. Bailey Freund, Dr. Jay Klancnik, Dr. Robert Klein, Dr. Jason Slakter, Dr. John Sorenson, and Dr. Richard Spaide, my partners, collaborators, and friends for many years. They have assisted me with encouragement and phenomenal images. I would also like to thank my residents and fellows who have been a constant source of inspiration and pleasure over the years through their inquisitive and provocative thoughts and accomplishments. I thank Russell Gabbedy at Elsevier for his enduring patience and assistance throughout the long process of putting this book together. All the members of the LuEsther T. Mertz Retinal Research Center of the Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital deserve special recognition for their assistance in every phase of the production of this atlas, with deep gratitude to Joan Daly, RN, for providing, organizing and supervising her staff, including Jean Doty, Jeffrey Barratt, Dr. Hema Karamchandani, and Dr. Inna Marcus. In particular, I am grateful to Pamela Gusmanos, who assumed the role of project coordinator, working tirelessly to organize the sections and assemble the images with meticulous care, patience, and discipline, and Dr. Monica Patel, whose detailed research and contributions to the content brought this book together as a cohesive volume. Above all, none of this would have been possible without the talents of Vishnu Hoff, their retinal photographer, who also proved to be an exceptional photographic editor, designer, image processor and coordinator with standards of the highest caliber and an early vision for the potential of this atlas. Vishnu has ensured that each and every image is as good as it can be, including hand assembling many of the montages and restoring faded and damaged gems from older collections. The talents of the research staff were matched only by their devotion to the project as they urged, prodded, and demanded excellence at every stage. I hope their boundless energy, motivation, and dedication will be rewarded by gratitude from clinicians and patients and the incalculable pleasure that these images will hopefully bring to both casual and discerning readers.
