Artificial Intelligence in Retinal Diagnostics: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Dr.Stephen Odaibo

Our  primary  task  in  the  retina  clinic  is  to  visualize  the  retina  and  determine  a  treatment  plan  based  on what  we  see.    With  the  limited  number  of  retina  specialists  in  the  United  States  and  around  the  world,  there  is  a  pressing  need  to  enhance  the  physician's  availability  and  ability  to  interpret  retinal  images.  Machine  learning  algorithms  allow  for  the  development  of  automated  diagnosis  technology  to  enhance the  efficacy  and  efficiency  of  the  eye  care  team.  In  this  Webinar  a  broad  overview  of  the  main  steps  involved  in  training  computer  algorithms  to  interpret  retinal  images will be given.  The  process  relies  on  large  amounts  of  high  quality  retinal  images,  and  therefore  ophthalmic  photographers  play  a  key  role.  At  the  end  of  this  course,  participants  should  have  a  general  understanding  of  how  AI  algorithms  are developed,  and  the  ways  in  which  AI  can  enhance  retina  care.

Image Archive and Data Systems for Ophthalmology
Timothy Steffens, CRA, OCT-C, FOPS

This  course  will  discuss  how  image  acquisition  systems  (fundus  cameras,  OCTs,  etc.)  network  with  each  other  and  or  connect  to  PACS  (Picture  Archive  and  Communications  Systems).  We will discuss how images  can  be  stored,  retrieved  and  viewed.  Networking  terms,  what  they  mean  and  how important  they  are,  like  SQL,  MySQL,  HL7,  DICOM,  ADT  and  modality  worklist.  At the end of this course students will have a basic foundation and understanding of networking ophthalmic devices and how PCS and EMRs work together to better patient care.

Slit Lamp and SD-OCT Anterior Segment (corneal) Imaging in Animal Research Models
Monica Motta

This  course  will  cover  corneal  imaging  in  various  animal  research  models  such  as  mice,  rats,  and  rabbits.  This  course  will  cover  the  struggles  and  adaptability  of  working  with  and imaging  animal  research  models.  Conducting and  securing  reliable,  truthful  and  interpretive  research  images  is  at  the  forefront  of ocular  research  which  result  in  findings  that  move  to  treatment  and  patient care  in  both  people  and animals.  Applications for imaging  of  corneal  wounds  will  also  be  discussed.  Following this course attendees should  have  an  understanding  of  the  adaptability  required  in  corneal  research  imaging  to  produce  diagnostic  and  publishable  images.

Ultra Wide Angle Imaging:  Seeing Into the Far Periphery
Olivia Rainey, OCT-C

This  lecture  will  introduce  instruments  that  can  be  used  to  image  the (far)  periphery  of  the  eye,  such  as the  Heidelberg  Spectralis,  utilizing  the  Non-Contact  Ultra-Widefield  Module  and  California  Ultrawide Imaging  System.  She will  elaborate  on  principle  features  of  each  technology,  and  identify  key applications  and  controls  of  the  instruments.  Performing  FA  and  ICG  angiographies  will  be  described with  ultra-wide  devices.  At  the  conclusion  of  this  lecture,  the students  will  be  able  to  discuss  situations  in  which  each  of  these  technologies  would  be  useful,  as  well  as  discuss  some of  the  advantages  and limitations  of  each  instrument.  The student will also be able to list some key considerations for operating the equipment.



Tuesday, September 25, 2018     9:00 pm EST - 10:00 pm EST

Swept-Source OCT
Ryan Nelson, CRA, OCT-C

The  Webinar  will  focus  on  Swept  Source  Optical  Coherence  Tomography.  SS-OCT theory  and  principles  will  be  explained.  The advantages  of  SS-OCT  will  be  highlighted  for  both  patient  and  operator.  SS-OCT will be compared  to  Spectral  Domain  OCT,  with  images  included.  At the end of the course the student will have gained knowledge about Swept Source OCT principles and compare these principles and advantages to Spectral Domain OCT.
