NEW Course Spotlight: Piecing the Puzzle Together: How Ultrasound, OCT, Fundus Photography and Fluorescein Angiography Correlate
Date: Tuesday, October 21, 2014 @ 8:30 AM
Speaker: Lois Hart, RDMS
Multiple diagnostic modalities are currently utilized to assist the ophthalmologist to formulate a diagnosis. Each modality in and of itself provides useful information, but may not reveal the whole story, or provides full
documentation of the disease state. An understanding of what each type of imaging modality provides and how it complements and overlaps with other diagnostic imaging results will provide a deeper understanding of ocular disorders. In this course we will address the usefulness and synergistic properties of each of the modalities in relation to actual clinical cases. At the end of this course, the attendee will have a deeper understanding of the imaging modalities used in an ophthalmic setting and how they complement each other to form a more complete documentation of the disease state. At the conclusion of the course the attendee will: understand the limitations of Ultrasound, OCT, Photography and Fluorescein Angiography; understand that limitations may not be exclusive to opaque media, fluorescein intolerance; be able to identify normal and variations of normal eye utilizing Ultrasound; be able to identify the normal OCT in relation to abnormal Fluorescein Angiography; and be able to identify abnormal Fluorescein Angiography in relation to normal ultrasound.
