Diagnostic insights with retinal ultra-widefield multimodal imaging - perspectives from an optometrist and ophthalmologist
Multimodal imaging is a valuable tool for the management of retinal diseases. This session aims to give diagnostic clues and insights to many common retinal pathologies with an emphasis on features that distinguish sight-threatening lesions from more benign diseases to guide management and enable effective multidisciplinary patient care. Imaging modalities covered will include:
- High-resolution swept-source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) at the macular
- Navigated SSOCT scans of the peripheral retina
- Confocal autofluorescence retinal imaging
- Multicolour ultra-widefield retinal imaging.
Clinical cases will be presented to include, macular degeneration, causes of retinal fluid, diabetic retinopathy and maculopathy, retinal detachment and other interesting cases.
Practitioners will recognise the benefits of ultra-widefield imaging to aid diagnosis and management of retinal abnormalities.
