Course: When the Ophthalmic Photographer Can See What the Eye Doctor Can’t: Imaging in Ocular Genetics
Lecturer: Alex V. Levin, MD, MHSc, FRCSC
Date: Friday, October 17, 2014 @ 9:30 AM
With new advances in molecular genetic diagnostics and therapeutics, careful detailed phenotyping becomes critical. Imaging allows for finding important clues beyond the clinical exam, which can be an important part of ensuring that the correct paradigm for genetic testing is used to find the etiology of the disease, which in turn allows for appropriate counseling and intervention. Not infrequently, the ophthalmic photographer’s work will allow us to find important clues beyond the clinical exam that can lead to appropriate testing and treatment. The ophthalmic photographer plays a vital role in the documentation and follow-up of vitreoretinal interface, retinal, and choroidal disorders. Upon completion of this course, the attendee will have an understanding of the role ophthalmic imaging plays in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular genetic disorders.
