Eye Care Live Webinar | April 20, 2023, 7 pm (CEST) / 1 pm (EDT)

The Clinical Value of Wide Field OCTA in Diabetes and Wide Field Imaging in the Peripheral Retina.

In this webinar we will show and explain why OCTA is clinically important in diabetic patients and how you can interpret OCTA to identify abnormalities even before they appear. Why is wide field imaging so important to have in your daily practice routine.

Moderator: Prof. Tariq Aslam, MA(Oxon) , DM (Oxon), FRCSEd(Ophth), PhD
Professor of Ophthalmology and Interface Technologies, University of Manchester
Consultant Ophthalmologist, Manchester Royal Eye Hospital
Director, IOVS MSc Course
Manchester, UK

Prof. Tariq Aslam began his medical training at Oxford University and completed his medical retina fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital. His first research doctorate from Oxford University involved clinical trials in ophthalmic surgery and a further PhD from Heriot-Watt University investigated technology applications in ophthalmology. Both doctorate theses utilized his skills in computer programming and his most recent led to a prize for the best PhD across all University disciplines. His current research explores many clinical interests in the retina including psychological aspects and the potential for computerized and technological enhancement of patient care including novel device development. He has over 100 peer-reviewed publications, predominantly as lead author, a number of patents and is an investigator on multiple commercial as well as investigator lead studies. His research has led to a spin-out medical technology company with awards for social impact, which is his ultimate research goal.

Presentation title: Investigations into Utility of Wide Field OCT-A in a Large Tertiary Ophthalmic Unit

In this presentation we will discuss the potential utility of wide field OCT-A imaging in a large tertiary ophthalmic unit, focusing specifically on its application in the management of proliferative diabetic retinopathy. We will begin by outlining the capabilities of our current device and presenting a summary of recent literature in this field. We will then present our own real-world experiences with a cohort of patients, studying the use of different fields of view and mosaic imaging as well as the potential for automated and semi-automated analysis. Ultimately, we will present data suggesting the clinical role for this exciting and developing technology to improve patient diagnosis and screening, preventing need for invasive imaging and improving clinic workflow.

Speaker: Dr. Davide Fazzalari, MD
Studio Medico Oculistico Fazzalari Postorino
Cittanova (RC), Italy

Dr. Davide Fazzalari graduated in 2015 at the university if Catanzaro from medical school. From 2016 until 2020 he specialized in ophthalmology at the University of Brescia. For his clinical activity his focus was on ophthalmological emergencies, ultra-specialist centers (cornea, uvea, retina, glaucoma), laser therapy) and surgery (intravitreal injections, corneal crosslinking, cataract surgery as first operator and vitreoretinal as second operator). In 2016 he qualified as a surgeon at the University of Catanzaro.

Presentation title: Wide Field OCT Angiography in Diabetic Retinopathy

The purpose of this presentation is to provide interpretative means about the diagnosis and study of diabetic retinopathy using wide field OCT angiography technology.
