Restricted/Chargeable Sessions
At our Annual Congress 2013 we will be running additional sessions for both Retinal Imaging and Glaucoma Diagnosis.

Retinal Imaging Course
  The Retinal Imaging Course is chaired by Professor Paulo Stanga (Manchester) and Mr James Talks (Newcastle).

The first part of the course takes place 10.00am - 2.00pm on Wednesday 22nd May, followed by part two in the afternoon at
2.00pm - 3.30pm on the same day.
    The Retinal Imaging Symposium is priced at £60 for all grades and includes both parts of the course.

Due to their popularity, we recommend that delegates book as early as possible to avoid disappointment, as the course is limited to 100 places.

The Retinal Imaging Symposium involves not only a series of lectures on a wide range of imaging techniques but also a series of educational retinal cases will be available on laptops to be worked through by the delegates with the session presenters.

Delegates will be allocated into groups and the presenters will rotate between the groups to achieve one-to-one interaction.

The latest imaging modalities will be covered including Optos® 200° Wide-angle Fundus Fluorescein Angiography and Autofluorescence, Fourier-Domain OCT, Camera-based Indocyanine Green Angiography, Microperimtery, Retcam® imaging in children, Ultrasound Scanning Imaging and Ultrasound Biomicroscopy and Multispectral Optic Nerve Head Imaging, Imaging in Diabetic Retinopathy Screening as well as Imaging in Inflammatory Chorioretinal Diseases.

The basic and latest concepts of Multiwavelength Imaging, Fundus Fluorescein Angiography and OCT interpretation will be presented in more detail.

New imaging techniques and clinical cases have been added to last year's program; Swept Source Infrared Wavelength OCT of vitreous and chorioretinal pathology, OCT of Uveal Disorders, amongst others. Hands-on Fourier-Domain and Swept Source OCT, Slit-Lamp OCT, Microperimetry and Wide-angle Fluorescein Angiography and Fundus Autofluorescence Imaging equipment demonstrations by Optos UK and Topcon UK will be available.

Handouts with the slides of each presentation will be provided.

By the end of the symposium the delegates should have not only increased their knowledge in the interpretation of the results obtained with the presented imaging techniques but also be able to image patients themselves

Glaucoma Diagnosis Course
The Glaucoma Diagnosis Course focuses on maximising the potential of imaging technologies for the diagnosis of glaucoma with guidance on the devices available, their practical use in the clinical setting, and a series of cases where the various imaging tools are demonstrated.
 
The course is chaired by Professor Rupert Bourne (Huntingdon/ Cambridge/Moorfields) and Professor Stephen Vernon (Nottingham).

The first part of the course takes place 9:00am -10:45am on Thursday 23 May, followed by part 2 in the afternoon at 2:15pm- 4:00pm on the same day.
    The Glaucoma Diagnosis symposium is priced at £60 for all grades and includes both parts of the course.

Due to the popularity of this course we recommend that delegates book as early as possible to avoid disappointment, as the course is limited to 100 places.

The Glaucoma Imaging Symposium involves not only a series of lectures on a wide range of imaging techniques but also a series of educational glaucoma cases will be available on laptops to be worked through by the delegates with the session presenters.

Delegates will be allocated into groups and the presenters will rotate between the groups to achieve one-to-one interaction.

The latest imaging modalities will be covered including Heidelberg Retina Tomography, Scanning Laser Polarimetry (GDx), and Ocular Coherence Tomography.

Several cases illustrated by imaging, visual fields and clinical histories will be available for the delegates to assess and discuss throughout the afternoon session. The aim is to provide a practical approach to using these devices as adjuncts in the diagnosis of patients suspected with glaucoma, but also to provide guidance on detecting conversion to glaucoma in ocular hypertensive patients and detecting deterioration in patients with established disease.

Handouts with the slides of each presentation will be provided.

By the end of the symposium the delegates should have not only increased their knowledge in the interpretation of the results obtained with the presented imaging techniques but also be able to image patients themselves.
