Abstract

In this symposium three international experts will discuss the latest technological developments in imaging diagnosis of various retinal disorders and glaucoma by the RS-3000 (OCT ) and F-10 (SLO). Treatment will be highlighted with cases employing photocoagulation by the MC-500 Vixi (Multicolor Pattern Scan Laser).

Early Diagnosis of Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a progressive optic neuropathy characterized by the loss of retinal ganglion cells, which leads to retinal nerve ber layer (RNFL) thinning and optic nerve cupping. RNFL damage precedes visual eld loss. The
RS-3000 can quantify RNFL thickness, measure the inner retinal complex, and supplement clinical work-up for the early detection of optic nerve ber layer defects with maps of large retinal regions.

Multimodal Macular Imaging: Integrating the RS-3000 and F-10 in Clinical Practice
The current clinical evaluation of retinal disorders is based on standard clinical examination and also on the mandatory contribution o ered by OCT and SLO. Current and future retinal diagnostics rest on the integration of information obtained by di erent approaches with the F-10 (including FA, ICGA, and FAF) and RS-3000. Multimodal macular imaging is the key to correctly interpret retinal and choroidal disorders a ecting the macula, to plan the most e ective therapy, and to provide precise and reliable criteria for retreatment.

Optimizing Laser Treatment with MC-500 Vixi
This lecture will highlight clinical outcomes associated with the MC-500 Vixi of diabetic retionpathy and age-related macular degerneration. The MC-500 Vixi enables painless, quick, and e ective treatment, and also it allows to form coagulation spot even in patients with moderate cataract or vitreous opacity. Patten scan function provides laser with less pain and less session time than conventional lasers.
