Adding OCT Angiography to Your Diagnostic Imaging Arsenal
Darrin Landry, CRA, OCT-C

In this lecture, discussion will be made about popular pre-conceived notions about OCT angiography, and compare it to commonly used diagnostic imaging devices. Best practices for integration and use of OCT angiography in a diagnostic imaging environment will also be discussed. At the end of the course the student should be able to explain the technology behind OCT angiography and how images are created. The student should also be able to describe common misconceptions of OCT angiography and describe how OCT angiography is integrated in a standard “dye angiography” and OCT practice.

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.  


REGISTER    [Please note this is the Sept 6th webinar that had to be cancelled and was re-scheduled for December. If you registered for the Sept webinar and did not request a refund, your registration has been transferred to this date.]

Pinpointing Pesky Pupillary Problems
Erica DelValle, COT, OCT-C

Accurately recognizing and documenting an abnormal pupil response is extremely important, especially if you will be dilating a patient prior to leaving the room. While changes in pupil size within the clinic are often the result of a direct stimulus, there is a possibility that it could also be an indicator of a bigger problem. This course will explain how to perform and document a proper pupil examination.  Examples of common pupillary defects will be shown.  At the end of the course the attendee will be able to identify and document an APD, differentiate between an anatomic pupil anomaly and an abnormal pupil reaction.  Also the role of the pupil in accommodation and recognizing common diagnoses that could cause changed in pupil size shape and reaction.

Smartphone Imaging in Ophthalmology
John Akkara, MD, MS

This will be a discussion on the relevance, techniques and advantages of smartphone imaging in glaucoma and the future prospects of smartphone in glaucoma imaging.  By the end of this course the student should be able to convey knowledge of techniques using the smartphone technology in glaucoma imaging
