OCT LIVE: retinal disease and referral refinement
Peter Cikatricis, Ophthalmologist, West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust
Christopher Mody, Director of Clinical Affairs, Heidelberg Engineering

OCT clinical evaluation will be brought to life with OCT LIVE. You will be guided through the patient journey, from scanning real patients live using the SPECTRALIS OCT in HD on the big screen to interpreting the images and making a decision on patient management. This interactive session challenges the classic case study book format and demonstrates how a multimodal imaging approach can be used in real life to assess the eye.

Lifting the lid on glaucoma
Tim Cole, Clinical Market Development Manager, Heidelberg Engineering

Learn how to use OCT parameters to assess a patient’s risk of glaucoma in conjunction with your existing arsenal of diagnostic tests. Discover how OCT can be used to spot the early signs of glaucoma through to how OCT can be used to monitor progression of the disease and referral protocol. In this lecture discussion workshop, you will work through a series of glaucoma case studies in groups and the session will be kept interactive with discussion.
