Anterior Segment Application
Anterior Segment OCT’s longer wave length of light allows deeper penetration of tissues, resulting in higher resolution of images in the anterior segment. Imaging of the anterior segment allows for easier and more accurate diagnosis and management of disease. The ability to obtain high definition images of the anterior segment is now critical in surgical decision making and in surgical planning. This course will compare time domain and spectral domain anterior segment OCT. It will address hardware, imaging technique and data interpretation. Clinical applications will be discussed for the following topics: Evaluation of corneal and anterior segment pathology, refractive evaluations, cataract planning, endothelial keratoplasty, and more. At the conclusion of this course, students will be knowledgeable of several anterior segment imaging modalities and have a greater understanding of how they can be clinically helpful.
