Sara Morales, CRA, OCT-C
This webinar covers the new technology of OCT angiography (OCT A) and is geared to the beginner and intermediate imager. Optovue AngioVue images will be used for examples in this webinar and Zeiss AngioPlex will be discussed. At the end of this course the imager will understand OCT A technology, show how to image a patient successfully, discuss the difference between OCT A and Fluorescein Angiography and show the diagnostics of different diseases that benefit by being imaged with OCT A.

Intro to Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
Dennis Zukosky, COA, CRA
One of the exciting advances in OCT imaging is the ability to capture motion and thus create angiographic studies of the human retina. This introductory course will provide an overview of OCTA principles along with a description of the retinal anatomy as seen on OCTA. The advantages and limitations of OCTA will be discussed and compared with fluorescein angiography. OCTA is capable of imaging the retinal micro-vasculature at specific levels within the retina. These layers will be illustrated in comparison to retinal anatomy and the corresponding software segmentation. Case presentations will include a comparison to fluorescein angiography and will use current OCTA systems. At the completion of this course the student should be able to recognize the advantages and limitations of OCTA, understand how OCTA compares with fluorescein angiography, recognize the retinal levels presented on OCTA and better appreciate how OCTA will be used in their clinical practice.

Kevin Langton, CRA
This course is designed to teach photographers the background behind OCT angiography and its applications in a clinical setting. By the end of this course the student will obtain a better understanding of the technical aspects of the equipment, how the physics of the equipment works, and be able to identify different disease processes.
