Abstract
We present a new method for processing confocal fluorescence angiographies in order to extract the topography of the perfused surface. The topographies extracted for various normal and pathologic conditions agree well with morphological and functional conditions. They allow, for example, the quantification of leakage and the verification of treatment success in photodynamic therapy and provide thus a new valuable tool for analyzing the topography of functional pathologies.
