Ground breaking research to be presented at premier OCT imaging conference

BonnUK practitioners are being urged to book now for the world’s premier optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging conference which takes place in Germany in October.

The 16th International SPECTRALIS Symposium (ISS) will be held on 12-13 October in a landmark building important to German history, the former Plenary Chamber of Germany’s Parliament in Bonn, and will provide a broad overview of research and clinical applications supported by the SPECTRALIS product family, with a social evening event for delegates on the Friday evening (12 October).

Heidelberg Engineering Academy events have become known for their atmosphere of vibrant scientific exchange over the years. The scientific programme for the 16th ISS includes a wide spectrum of topics and interactive sessions and will feature presentations from experts from around the world. Presentations topics will include deep learning and artificial intelligence in image analysis, OCT angiography, and OCT in optic neuropathies.

Heidelberg Engineering UK Director, Krysten Williams, explained:

“The ISS gives clinicians and researchers the venue and opportunity to share their discoveries and findings in a creative atmosphere.”

She added: “Practitioners who own a SPECTRALIS go to the ISS and discover just how much their SPECTRALIS can do, how it can broaden their horizons and what a worthwhile educational tool it really is.”

“The ISS offers practitioners the opportunity to learn from their peers around the world how they can maximise the potential of diagnostic imaging to improve patient care.”

Among those attending ISS will be Katheryn Escott of Penzer Opticians in Birmingham. The optometrist has used OCT for three years and won a trip to the symposium in a draw at Optrafair in April. “I was quite amazed to hear that I’d won the competition,” she said. Looking ahead to ISS, she concluded:

“I’m always looking to get more knowledge and am really looking forward to finding out about the new developments in the latest technology. I’m particularly keen to find out more about the analysis of images.”

Heidelberg Engineering Academy highlights that booking for ISS closes on September 21 and urges practitioners wishing to attend to book now at
