The OPS is proud to present Dr. Asim Ali, assistant professor at the University of Toronto and clinical director at the Hospital for Sick Children. Dr. Ali's Mid Year Program talk; "Pearls of Pediatric Anterior Segment Imaging"will demonstrate the wide range of anterior segment imaging systems used in the adult patient population can also be invaluable in the high volume pediatric ambulatory and surgical setting. A DSLR camera, photoslit lamp, fundus camera, scheimpflug imaging with Pentacam, Visante OCT and UBM can all be adapted for imaging of children. Novel uses of the hand-held Bioptigen OCT and RetCam for supine slitlamp and gonio-photography will also be covered.
Imaging for diagnostic, clinical, teaching and research plays a vital role in Dr. Ali's clinical and surgical practice. He has amassed an enviable teaching collection composed exclusively of images of his own patients. In 45 mins he will present a short collection of what he describes as his "greatest hits” of pediatric anterior segment imaging.
