Date: Saturday, October 18, 2014 @ 1:30PM
Speaker: Cynthia VandenHoven, BAA, CRA
Pediatric ophthalmology, a multi-specialty sub-specialty, presents the ophthalmic photographer with a wide range of pathologies, patient dispositions, and unique imaging challenges. Knowledge of normal ocular development and common pediatric conditions guides the imaging plan. Understanding of the main goals and objectives of the imaging request and age-appropriate patient management
strategies plays a critical role in the success of a session. An imaging plan composed of careful selection of imaging systems based on capabilities and shortcomings along with creative alternatives will be discussed. At the end of this course, the ophthalmic photographer will be presented with a range of pediatric conditions and be able to identify methods and selection criteria of the wide range of imaging modalities that are most suited for the pediatric patient.
