Posted By Elaine Lok, Friday, February 27, 2015

"The Bionic Eye: Outcomes of the first Argus II implantations in the United States"  and "Quantification of Disease Manifestation in Autofluorescence Images and Fluorescein Angiography"

Speaker: K. Thiran Jayasundera, MD, University of Michigan, Kellogg Eye Center

Date: Friday, June 26, 2015 @ 11:15AM-12:15PM

 

 

  

The Ophthalmic Photographers’ Society is pleased to announce the first of two Keynote

Speakers for the 2015 Mid-Year Program. Dr. K. Thiran Jayasundera will present a 60 minute

lecture on two topics in the morning on Friday June 26th. He will discuss the latest

advances with the bionic eye, and then address the use of FAF and FA to detect pathological

changes.

 

A graduate of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists, Dr.

Jayasundera is a vitreoretinal specialist with a focus on uveitis, inherited retinal diseases, and

clinical trials. His areas of research focus include genotype-phenotype correlations of inherited

retinal diseases, predictors of disease progression, and outcome measures for therapeutic

clinical trials.

 

Talk 1

"The Bionic Eye: Outcomes of the first Argus II implantations in the United States"

Course Description: The outcomes of the first commercial Argus II implants in Michigan will be

discussed.  Indications, preoperative and postoperative imaging, surgical details and visual

rehabilitation will be presented.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the attendee should be able to identify the

specific indications for considering Argus II implantations in patients, list the imaging performed

at the time of preoperative assessment and be able to counsel patients on expectations and

visual rehabilitation.

 

Talk 2

"Quantification of Disease Manifestation in Autofluorescence Images and Fluorescein

Angiography"

 

Course Description: Novel automated image analysis techniques for autofluorescence imaging

and fluorescein angiography will be discussed. The use of machine learning algorithms for

feature extraction and quantification developed at the University of Michigan will be presented.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the attendee should be able to list the imaging

steps necessary to detect and quantify pathological changes seen in autofluorescence

imaging and fluorescein angiography.
