Imaging and glaucoma

This module will consist of a practical and interactive session reviewing the basic and more advanced aspects of ocular coherence tomography (OCT) of the optic nerve. We will review a standardized approach to the optic nerve imaging printout and discuss straightforward cases of glaucoma diagnosis, common false positives and artifacts, as well as non-glaucomatous causes of abnormal optic nerve imaging. The same will be done for progression analyses.

Learning objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to

  • Compare the advantages and disadvantages of optic nerve imaging versus optic nerve photography
  • Evaluate an optic nerve imaging printout for the purpose of diagnosis of glaucoma
  • Evaluate an optic nerve imaging printout for the purpose of progression of glaucoma
