Heidelberg Engineering has announced that it will be launching a series of CET-accredited educational events nationwide with a glaucoma theme.
Described as “bringing optical coherence topography (OCT) to life,” the ‘OCT Live’ roadshows have been designed to guide practitioners through the patient journey, from scanning the patient live in high definition on the big screen to interpreting the images and making a decision on patient management.
The sessions, which are interactive and CET-accredited, will demonstrate how a multimodal imaging approach can be used to assess a patient’s eye.
Delivered by the Heidelberg Engineering Academy team with guest speakers, the event will explain how OCT can be used to spot the early signs of glaucoma, monitor progression of the disease and make decisions on patient management.
Director of clinical services at Heidelberg Engineering, Christopher Mody, explained: “The OCT Live roadshows are an exciting way for practitioners to learn about OCT as they can see the scan taking place live in high definition and learn every aspect of OCT playing a major role in the detection and treatment of glaucoma.”
The roadshows will start at 6.30pm and are suitable for OCT beginners and skilled users alike. The first event takes place in Newcastle upon Tyne on 2 February, before moving on to six other venues across the UK.
To register interest to attend an event, practitioners should supply their name, address, telephone number, email and GOC number to Academy-UK@HeidelbergEngineering.com
