During the past two decades, retinal imaging technologies have advanced dramatically making it possible to image and probe single retinal cells in the living human eye. This gives detailed insight into the conditions and functioning of the retina at a scale that still remains to be fully explored in ophthalmic clinics.
In this webinar, hosted by the Applications of Visual Science Technical Group, we will address key issues related to imaging and probing of cells in the retina of the human eye, its use as a diagnostic tool for improved detection of retinal disease and address outstanding issues that still needs to be addressed.
What You Will Learn/Seminar Objectives:
You will learn about different methodologies being applied to image the retina including fundus cameras, scanning light ophthalmoscopes, and optical coherence tomography. How aberrations can be overcome when imaging and probing the cells of the retina. What can be learned from probing and analyzing the retina with resolution at the level of single cells, and how it plays a key role for improved retinal diagnostics allowing alterations to be visualized at the earliest possible stage.
Who Should Attend:
The webinar is primarily aimed towards research students (MSc, PhD, postdocs) in the areas of optics, ophthalmology, and vision sciences. The talks, however, will also be relevant from researchers from academia and industry in the field or related fields who wants to be informed about state-of-the-art retinal imaging and analysis.
The level of this webinar in intermediate to advanced.
