New technology - new pathology: multi-modal imaging as an enhancement to standard retinal examinations
As optometrists continue to invest in new diagnostic technology such as OCT and ultra-widefield retinal imaging, many embark on a natural steep learning curve as they get to grips with new imaging techniques. It is understandable that even skilled practitioners can find new technology daunting and the aim of this lecture is demonstrate the benefits of multi modal imaging and the enhanced diagnostic capabilities use of this technology brings, instilling an enhanced level of confidence in the practitioner as a result.
To have a greater understanding of the role multi modal retinal imaging can now bring to enhanced patient care
To have a better understanding of how to link the various relevant imaging techniques such as OCT and retinal imaging to a coherent diagnostic and management structure allowing for increased diagnostic capability
To be able to describe and explain as well as have the ability to discuss outcomes of image analysis with the patient and relevant other professionals where necessary.
