Learn about using OCT in the investigation of optic neuropathies
The optic nerve head is part of the central nervous system and can offer signs of neurological disorders. The SPECTRALIS® provides a comprehensive analysis of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), macular retina, RNFL, and ganglion cell layer (GCL) thickness that enables the clinician to observe patterns of change associated with neuro-ophthalmic disease.
The Heidelberg Engineering Academy invites you to join educational webinars on the subject of neuro-ophthalmology that explore the latest research and offer practical advice about how OCT can be used, alongside other diagnostic tests, to investigate optic neuropathies.
Using OCT Measures as Non-Invasive Surrogates of Intracranial Pressure
November 4th, 6:30pm - 7:30pm (GMT)
Susan Mollan, Consultant Neuro-Ophthalmologist, University Hospitals Birmingham, UK, will highlight new understanding of how we can use OCT as a surrogate measure of intracranial pressure with standard analysis software, so the results can be readily transferable into routine clinical practice.
Optic Disc Dilemmas
December 9th, 6:30pm - 7:30pm (GMT)
Dr. Gregory Heath, Medical Ophthalmologist, York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, UK, will examine how OCT, alongside other diagnostic tests and medical history, can be used to assess the eye for signs of a neurological disorder. 1 CET point is approved for UK optometrists and dispensing opticians.
We look forward to welcoming you at the webinars!
