"Ultrasonography for Intraocular Tumors" and "Telemedicine for Pediatric Retinal Diseases"
Speaker: Cagri G. Besirli, M.D., Ph.D, University of Michigan, Kellogg Eye Center
Date: Saturday, June 27, 2015 @ 11:15AM-12:15PM
The Ophthalmic Photographers’ Society is pleased to announce Dr. Cagri Besirli the second of two keynote speakers for the 2015 Mid-Year Program.
Please join us for Dr. Besirli’s 60 minute presentation on two topics in the morning on Saturday, June 27th: The utilization of ultrasound in documenting intraocular tumors, and Kellogg Eye Center’s telemedicine advances in documenting and treating pediatric retinal diseases will be discussed.
A graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, MO, Dr. Besirli is a vitreoretinal specialist with a focus on ocular trauma surgeries and pediatric retinal disorders.
Ultrasonography for Intraocular Tumors
Course Description: The principles of ophthalmic ultrasound and its role in the diagnosis of intraocular tumors will be reviewed using a case study approach.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the attendee should be able to describe different ultrasound techniques used in the evaluation of intraocular tumors, list the steps involved in patient evaluation, and discuss the ultrasonographic findings seen in common tumors.
Telemedicine for Pediatric Retinal Diseases
Course Description: The emerging field of ophthalmic telemedicine for the evaluation and diagnosis of children with retinal disorders will be discussed, with special attention given to the role of photographic screening in Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP).
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the attendee should be able to describe the advantages and disadvantages of telemedicine for ROP screening, discuss the findings of major clinical trials evaluating the photographic screening of ROP, list the challenges faced by ophthalmic telemedicine programs.
