Heidelberg event to explore potential of Spectralis

The 16th International Spectralis Symposium will take place on 12–13 October in Bonn, Germany

Bonn, Germany

Heidelberg Engineering Academy’s International Spectralis Symposium (ISS) will provide an overview of research and clinical applications supported by its Spectralis product range.

Interactive sessions and presentations will be delivered by experts on topics, such as deep learning and artificial intelligence in image analysis, optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography and OCT in optic neuropathies.

UK director of Heidelberg Engineering, Krysten Williams, said: “The ISS gives clinicians and researchers the venue and opportunity to share their discoveries and findings in a creative atmosphere.”

Ms Williams added that practitioners will be able to discover how much their Spectralis can do and what it can offer as an educational tool.

The 16th ISS will be held in Bonn, Germany at the former Plenary Chamber of the German Parliament on 12–13 October, with a social evening for delegates taking place on Friday.

Booking to attend the event closes on 21 September. For further information visit the Heidelberg Engineering Academy website.
