Why not box-it and use your color filters on a regular basis?

Frank P.J. Smolders University Medical Center Groningen UMCG, Groningen, The Netherlands Purpose: This presentation will show some useful try-outs, which is actually very basic knowledge, to inspire and motivate the it-does-makes-sense photographer!Methods: Also in ophthalmic imaging, box enhancement and using several color filters can be serious tools to use for delicate details in -not only- retina but also in anterior photography.Results: Better pigmentation, vein and other indications.Conclusion: Better pigmentation, vein and other indications.

Fine-tuning your anterior photography; tips and tricks!

Frank P.J. Smolders University Medical Center Groningen UMCG, Gytsjerk, Fryslân, The Netherlands Purpose: Informative, unconventional results in anterior ophthalmic photography.Results: To have your anterior segment photograph series in good order for eye research and registration, it takes skills and clarity. One picture is, most of the time, not sufficient. Series of well illuminated slit lamp photographs do have a great value on follow-up research.Conclusion: I’d like to present a useful standard way of anterior segment photography, followed by unusual cases using unconventional light...

Ultra-widefield fundus photography (UWFP) for pediatric retinal pathology

Olivia Rainey, OCT-C, COA Retina Specialists of Michigan, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA Purpose: To describe UWFP for assessment and monitoring of posterior pediatric pathology. UWFP can improve clinical assessment and potentially decrease the burden of examinations under anesthesia for pediatric patients with conditions such as retinopathy of prematurity, retinoblastoma, traumatic injury, hereditary disease, retinal detachment, among others.

OCTA and Infra-Red Auto Fluorescence in CSCR – New and Multi-Modal Imaging Findings

Ethan Priel, FOPS MOR Ophthalmology Dept., MOR Institute, Bnei Brak, Israel Purpose: To present Infra-Red Auto Fluorescence (IRAF) – which highlights unique findings in the early, unremarkable stages of Central Serous Chorioretinopathy (CSCR) – and to assess the possible contribution of Optical Coherent Topography Angiography (OCTA) in locating Choroidal Neo-Vascular membranes during the acute, often chronic, stages of the disease. Results were compared to findings from Fluorescein Angiography (FA), Indocyanine Green Angiography (ICGA), Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF), Infra...

OCTA in Mac Tel 2 – New and Complimentary Multi-Modal Imaging Findings

Ethan Priel, FOPS MOR Ophthalmology Dept., MOR Institute, Bnei Brak, Israel Purpose: To assess the contribution of Optical Coherent Topography Angiography (OCTA) when evaluating microvasculature morphology surrounding the central macula in eyes with idiopathic macular telangiectasis type 2 (MacTel 2). Results were compared to findings from fluorescein angiography (FA), fundus autofluorescence (FAF), confocal blue reflectance (CBR) and spectral-domain OCT (SDOCT).

On Reflection: Retro-illumination in Veterinary Ophthalmic Photography

John Mould Eye Veterinary Clinic, Leominster, Herefordshire, United Kingdom Purpose: To illustrate the value of the tapetal reflex in ophthalmic photography of the dog and cat. Methods: Most dog and cat eyes contain a tapetum, a layer of cells situated in the inner choroid immediately outside the choriocapillaris. The tapetum is brightly coloured in shades of green, yellow or orange and its function is to reflect light back onto the photoreceptors to maximise the stimulus in dim light. The “red reflex” is important in clinical examination and ophthalmic photography in man. In most...

Connecting the Dots : A Pediatric Case Presentation

Gary Miller Geisinger Eye Institute, Danville, Pennsylvania, USA Purpose: To present a case illustrating the causal connection between ocular findings in a pediatric patient and a rare continental disorder.Results: Ophthalmic photographers often document ocular findings with non ocular origins. This case will highlight the case of a rare congenital disorder and it’s embryonic connection to ocular findings in a pediatric patient.

Ophthalmic Photography in the Netherlands: Past and Present

Jeroen Grimbergen Ijsselstein, The Netherlands Purpose: The first attempts to produce photographs of the human fundus were done in the second half of the end of the 19th century, shortly after the introduction of the ophthalmoscope. Although the centre of development of fundus cameras lay in Germany, considerable improvements were made in the Netherlands by professor Salomonson, who built his camera in 1917. It is one example of contributions of Dutch scientists to ophthalmic photography. In the early 60’s Fundus Fluoresceine Angiography was introduced in the Netherlands. Many ophthalmic...

B-scan Ultrasonography as an Ophthalmic Imaging Tool

Jeroen Grimbergen Ijsselstein, The Netherlands Purpose: Not often B-scan Ultrasonography procedures are performed by non-physicians. But with the right practice, it can be done by optometrists or ophthalmic technicians. As one of them, I would like to share my experiences. Methods: A short history of USG and examination techniques will be presented.Conclusion: A B-scan image can be a important diagnostic tool in case of intraocular pathology such as tumors and in case of eyes that are impossible to examine by funduscopy. Some examples will be shown.
