Catch the Wave at the Mid-Year Program

As one of those people who have been around for a while, I have seen a number of tests come and go several times. Usually tests get revived when a new application or more commonly when advances in technology improve the test and create results their original inventors never could have imagined. My talk at the Mid-Year Program in San Francisco "Electrophysiology and Pupillometry in Ophthalmic Imaging” is just such a topic.

So what do you get when combine construct mathematics, multi-channel digital signal amplifiers, precision calibrated liquid crystal on silicon displays, infrared fundus cameras and lots of raw computing power? You get the exciting world of fundus monitored and pupil monitored visual electrophysiology. These are not the old VEP's and ERG's of the past. Modern technology has made powerful and reproducible multifocal test a reality. A reality that a number of drug trials want to use and no group is better suited to learning and performing these tests than the great members of the OPS.

I hope you will join us at the Mid-Year Program in San Francisco to learn not only a little bit about the basics of the new electrophysiology test but a lot of other great topics as well. Oh and that's just half of my talk, I will be back with more on the other half later.
