Expanding clinical applications make autofluorescence an essential tool for evaluating age related macular degeneration, macular dystrophies and many other retinal disorders.
In a free CPD accredited webinar, qualified optometrist and educator Simon Browning will describe the use of autofluorescence to detect abnormalities beyond those detected on funduscopic exam, fluorescein angiography, or optical coherence tomography, and to elucidate disease pathogenesis, form genotype-phenotype correlations, diagnose and monitor disease, and evaluate novel therapies.
The first person in the world to use Optos’ Daytona autofluorescent imaging… he describes the advent of this system as the biggest game-changer in eye healthcare
Throughout this webinar, Mr Browning will discuss the rationale behind the importance of routine retinal autofluorescence imaging, the retinal pigment epithelium structure and metabolic activity, differentiation and interpretation of hyper and hypofluorescent images, and decision making following examination of autofluorescent images.
Hosted by Optos, this free webinar is CPD approved by Optometry Australia’s Institute of Excellence*. Participants will receive one CPD point for involvement in this webinar.
