Practical Applications of Novel Optical Coherence Tomography Technologies in the Diagnosis and Management of Ocular Disease

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate current and new uses and modalities of OCT for ophthalmic disease imaging
  • Recognize artifacts and pitfalls of OCT imaging for ocular disease
  • Examine diagnostic capabilities of imaging for glaucoma and formulate treatment plans based on imaging data along with functional testing
  • Analyze imaging data for change to determine when to escalate treatment for glaucoma in response to progression by imaging
  • Identify and follow patients with neuro-ophthalmic disease based on imaging testing
  • Interpret retinal imaging to help diagnose retinal diseases
  • Use OCT imaging to determine progression and response to treatment of retinal diseases
  • Analyze clinical trial use of imaging technology and how to put into clinical practice
