Heidelberg Engineering has launched a new series of CET-accredited educational events with a glaucoma theme.
The nationwide evening roadshows, called OCT Live, will guide practitioners through the patient journey, from scanning the patient live in HD on the big screen to interpreting the images and making a decision on patient management.
The interactive sessions are designed to challenge the classic case study book format and demonstrate how a multimodal imaging approach can be used in real life to assess a patient’s eye.
The Heidelberg Engineering Academy team, plus special guest speakers, will explain how OCT can be used to spot the early signs of glaucoma, to monitor progression of the disease and to make decisions on patient management.
Director of clinical services at Heidelberg Engineering, Christopher Mody, said: "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 about every aspect of OCT that plays a major role in the detection and treatment of glaucoma.”
The roadshows are held in the evening, starting at 6.30pm and are suitable for OCT beginners and skilled users alike.
The next event is in Winchester on 15 February, followed by Cardiff on 23 February, Belfast on 7 March, Barnstable on 14 March and Torbay on 15 March, concluding in Calderdale and Kirklees on 25 March.
To register interest in an event, practitioners are asked to email Academy-UK@HeidelbergEngineering.com with their name, address, telephone number, email and GOC number. For more information, visit the company’s website.
