Color Consistency Analysis in Fundus Photography

Christye Sisson, CRA, MS

Wednesday - 12/02/2015  8-9 pm EST

 

REGISTER

While color management has long been utilized in the commercial photography world as a method of ensuring color consistency and accuracy, the same methodology has not been applied in the context of ophthalmic photography. One reason for the color differences in the appearance of the retina in fundus imaging in ophthalmology is the lack of a suitable calibration method or standard. This causes significant retinal color disparity from camera to camera, even within the same manufacturer for the same patient. This course will describe some of the methods and testing being explored to begin to identify a suitable calibration phantom and devise the best working/vendor practices to ensure color consistency in fundus imaging. This work is part of a joint ICC/FDA working group on Color in Medical Imaging. The student will learn the basic principles of color management, and how these methods can be applied to fundus photography. The student will also gain experience with the methods being devised to help manage across the industry.

Basic Fundus Photography

Brice Crister, CRA

Tuesday - 12/08/2015  8-9 pm EST

REGISTER

Struggling to improve your fundus photography? Think it’s too difficult? Think again. This course will provide a basic overview of the process of photographing the ocular fundus as a precursor to the comprehensive workshop. Anatomy of the fundus camera, troubleshooting, and a guide to color fundus photography will be discussed. Basic protocols for fundus photography and the patient encounter will be reviewed. At the end of this course, the student will be able to identify the anatomy of the fundus camera, and list the protocols for basic capture of images

On Different Wavelengths: The Spectrum of Retinal Imaging

Tim Bennett, CRA, FOPS

Thursday - 12/10/2015  8-9 pm EST

REGISTER

Modern retinal imaging incorporates a variety of instruments, filters or lasers to maximize diagnostic information. This course will briefly describe common techniques, filters, and wavelengths used in fundus cameras and scanning laser ophthalmoscopes (SLO) for fundus photography, monochromatic imaging, angiography, fundus autofluorescence and OCT. Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to list instruments commonly used for retinal imaging, describe the principles of fluorescence and monochromatic illumination, and discuss their effect on visualization of fundus structures.

Ocular Emergencies

Michael Dellavecchia, MD, PhD

Tuesday - 12/15/2015  8-9 pm EST

REGISTER


This course will discuss the most common ocular emergencies and what types of photography or documentation is necessary and useful. It will contain photographs of eye injuries that will definitely leave a lasting impression! More importantly, the course will discuss the value of preventative measures and how to recognize those situations when quick action is most beneficial. At the conclusion of this course, the student will be able to recognize common ocular emergencies, list potential preventative measures, and describe the photographic documentation that is most appropriate in different situations.
