The Heidelberg Engineering Academy has introduced a suite of educational courses specifically tailored to diabetic eye screeners. The courses provide detailed tuition in how to capture OCT images competently, understand normal retinal anatomy, and identify pathological changes. The opportunities on offer include in-person courses hosted in Leeds and a virtual webinar.
The SPECTRALIS: Skills for Diabetic Eye Screening Course is suitable for participants who want comprehensive training on how to acquire and interpret OCT images for diabetic screening. This interactive course covers an introduction to OCT and its use in diabetic eye screening, case study discussion, hands-on SPECTRALIS image acquisition using infrared and OCT, and HEYEX 2 software navigation. The course runs from 9:30am – 4:00pm and there is a choice of dates to attend, either the 12th March or 23rd April 2024.
The OCT Skills for Diabetic Eye Screeners Webinar takes place on 9th April, 6:00pm – 7:00pm, and provides guidance on using OCT for diabetic eye screening. The speakers will explore how normal retinal anatomy and retinal pathology relating to diabetes looks on OCT with case study discussion. The webinar, which is free to attend, will be delivered by Samantha Mann, Consultant Ophthalmologist, from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and Tim Cole, Clinical Affairs Manager, Heidelberg Engineering UK.
“These new courses have been designed to help participants take the best quality images, which in turn allows for the most accurate diagnostics”, says Tim Cole, Clinical Affairs Manager. “The Heidelberg Engineering Academy is committed to raising the standard of education in ophthalmic imaging and empowering participants with confidence and knowledge to take away and improve patient care in their clinic.”
