CET workshop: Making the most of your OCT



Short description

This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity for delegates with some experience of OCT, to understand how to obtain the best scan from patients with tricky eyes (e.g. high myopia, media opacities) by the careful selection of scan patterns. The session will also focus on the additional clinical information that can be obtained from further data analysis such as nerve fibre trend analysis and the latest En Face technology, and the impact this can have on patient management. The use of anterior segment OCT in everyday clinical practice will also be covered. Read more>

Description

Making the most of your OCT – Advanced scanning and analysis

bstract: This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity for delegates with some experience of OCT, to understand how to obtain the best scan from patients with tricky eyes (e.g. high myopia, media opacities) by using advanced imaging settings. The session will also focus on the additional clinical information that can be obtained from further data analysis such as nerve fibre trend analysis and Ganglion cell analysis, and the impact this can have on patient management. The use of anterior segment OCT in everyday clinical practice, particularly in relation to glaucoma diagnosis, will also be covered.

Competencies covered: Professional conduct, Ocular examination, Ocular disease

Learning objectives:

  • 3.1.1: Is able to capture and optimise anterior segment OCT images and understand its use in examining anterior eye parameters including corneal thickness and anterior chamber angle.
  • 3.1.3: To be able to capture combined fundus and OCT images for the examination of the posterior pole in more difficult patients with media opacities or high myopia.
  •  6.1.5: To be able to identify common retinal and optic disc abnormalities from a posterior OCT scan and differentiate normal from abnormal. Is able to utilise anterior segment OCT to identify common anterior segment abnormalities such as narrow anterior chamber angles.
  • 6.1.8: Able to perform ganglion cell and retinal nerve fibre analysis to monitor changes in nerve fibre layer over time with a view to the early detection of glaucoma. Is able to adapt scanning techniques to monitor potentially glaucomatous changes in tricky patients, such as those with high myopia or media opacities. 
  • 6.1.9: Is able to select the most appropriate scan pattern and analysis to look for macular abnormalities and manage appropriately.
