Standard Techniques of B-Scan
Adeline Stone, CRA, COT, CDOS

The objective for this course is to help the ophthalmic photographer / technician gain a better understanding of how to perform ultrasound screenings in a clinical setting.  The mechanics of the bscan device, basic physics, and different types of ultrasound used in ophthalmology will be discussed.. An overview of how to position the probe correctly, labeling the imaging being scanned, and what the anatomy correlates to the probe position will be explained. At the end of the course a basic bscan screening protocol will be discussed that the student can apply to their normal routine. The student will gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of ultrasonography and practice the presented screening technique.

A Dive Into the Deep Blue
Ryan Imperio, CRA, OCT-C

This presentation will review the science of light and how it is absorbed by ocular structures with a focus on ultraviolet and high-energy visible light.  It is well-known that prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light can have ill effects on ocular health, but recent research has suggested that high-energy visible light can also pose a risk. Blue light falls within the spectrum of having both a short wavelength and a high amount of energy. As part of the visible light spectrum, blue light is transmitted through the anterior structures of the eye and is absorbed by the retina. Long-term exposure could be recognized as a potential risk factor for retinal damage such as that found in AMD. Conversely, blue light impacts visual acuity, hormone balance, and the circadian rhythm. Modern lighting and digital devices emit an increased level of blue light and has many eye care professionals concerned about what is being termed as the “blue light hazard”.

UBM Standard Techniques
Ellen Redenbo, CRA, ROUB, CDOS

This course will focus on how to properly set-up a UBM ultrasound, place on patient's eye for examination, standard terms for documentation, and examples of cases that a UBM is the most useful modality. After this course the student will know to properly set-up a UBM with proper asepesis, examine the patient in the proper position(s), understand how to document images captured, ability to measure anterior lesions, and describe pathology from UBM findings.

Efficient and Effective High Volume Patient Angiography Clinics
Stuart Alfred, CRA, OCT-C

We all want improved outcomes, but as the medical industry continues to march forward with more testing carried out by fewer technicians, this webinar prepares you for the inevitable increases in patient encounters.   If you capture 1 or 10 angiograms per day, this course is for you.  The student will learn how to manage  high volumes of patient encounters.  Together we will examine how to previsualize, strategize and design efficient and effective patient flow at your facility. We will prioritize testing modality for efficiency, recognize technician ergonomics vs. patient ergonomics/ambulatory capacities, and look at how to avoid slowdowns that create logjams and many other issues and answers to high volume testing. OCT testing will be discussed as well in the context of FA devices which also perform OCT.  OCT-A is not included in this course.
