Clinical applications of adaptive optics ophthalmoscopy

Session 1 : High resolution retinal imaging: present and future

Structural imaging

  • Adaptive optics : flood versus scanning
  • High speed AO and structural illumination
  • Ganglion cells and RPE imaging
  • Image processing and analysis
Blood flow
  • Holography
  • Laser Doppler with the rtx1
Session 2 : The normal retina seen by adaptive optics ophthalmoscopy
The rtx1 camera : what you need to know first
  • Technical presentation
  • Real life use, protocols, tips & tricks
What is a normal AOO image
  • Basic interpretation of photoreceptor imaging
  • Counting photoreceptors
  • Basic interpretation of vessel imaging
  • What are Gunn’s dots
Session 3 : AOO of the pathological retina
Dry age-related macular degenerationPhotoreceptor diseases: beyond counting PRs
  • Retinal dystrophies
  • Photoreceptor misalignment
Microvessels: a window to general diseases
  • Arterial hypertension
  • Diabetes, arteriolosclerosis
  • Inflammation
  • Amylosis
  • Radiation retinopathy
Surgical diseases : ERM, RD, MH
SESSION 4 : Case presentations
Practical training on the rtx1
Two successive practical sessions will be held for two groups of 10 persons, during which demonstrations of the rtx1 camera will be done in controls and in patients. Participants will have the possibility to perform examination on each other, during which the various structures observable by adaptiv optics ophthalmoscopy will be commented. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own clinical cases for informal case discussions. Presentation of other high resolution imaging systems will also be done. As the number of participants is limited, please indicate at the time of registration if you are willing to participate.
