OCT: The DNA for confident glaucoma diagnostics


Heidelberg Engineering - Stand B20: 2 CET Points

SD-OCT is a valuable tool in the identification of glaucoma – particularly in its early stages. Taking a systematic approach to assessing your OCT images, recognising characteristic patterns of tissue loss and understanding the advantages and limitations of your technology is vital for accurate identification of the disease and correct referrals. In this session you will learn the DNA for confident glaucoma diagnostics.

Learning objectives:

6.1.2 An understanding of how glaucoma affects a patient’s vision and how SD-OCT can be used to investigate the patient’s risk of glaucoma

6.1.3 An understanding of how SD-OCT can be used to monitor a patient with glaucoma for progression of the disease and when to refer.

6.1.5 An introduction to the advantages and limitations of using SD-OCT to assess a patient’s risk of glaucoma and recognise what an SD-OCT of a patient with glaucoma might look like.
