Retinal Anatomy and Physiology
This course will discuss the roles of the layers of the retina, choriocapillaris and choroid, including photoreceptor cells, retinal pigment epithelium, Bruchs membrane and nerve fiber layer. How retinal disease affects these structures will also be presented.
We will demonstrate multiple fluorescein angiograms, discuss sodium fluorescein, its side effects, normal pathway and tips and techniques for the administration and image capture of fluorescein.
This discussion will center on disease specific angiography, and how ICG can be utilized as an imaging tool and adjunct. Properties of the dye, retinal/choroidal diseases ICG imaging is useful for, as well as tips for acquiring stellar ICG images will be presented.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
OCT is the most utilized diagnostic imaging device used in ophthalmology, and can be a tremendous asset for diagnosing and treating retinal disease. We will discuss how OCT works, recognizing artifacts and how to remedy them, acquiring optimal scans for both retina and glaucoma applications and presentation of common retinal diseases as seen on OCT.
Optical Coherence Tomographic Angiography (OCTA)
OCTA is a relatively new imaging modality, and if used correctly, may alter the way your practice images patients. We will discuss OCTA technology, artifacts, pathology and how to best use OCTA in your practice.
Common Retinal Disease and Treatment
Utilizing our imaging tools, we will go over common retinal diseases, such as dry AMD, wet AMD, diabetic retinopathy, vascular occlusions, macular telangiectasia and CSR. How these diseases appear on imaging, the pathophysiology behind the disease, and treatments used for these diseases will be discussed.
