Intro to Orbital & Intraocular Tumors
Dive into the many manifestations of ocular tumors through diagnosis based on patient history and examination, and diagnostic imaging.
Over the course of an hour, we will dive into the many manifestations of ocular tumors, starting with orbital tumors. Orbital tumors are one of most commonly initially missed ophthalmic diseases seen in clinical practice by Oculoplastic Surgeons. Oculoplastic Surgeon, Dr. Chris Thiagarajah will perform a review of orbital tumors, what to look for, how to diagnose, and key findings. Ocular Oncologist, Dr. Peter Hovland, will then spend the last half of the course presenting an overview of intraocular tumors, exploring eye cancer diagnosis based on patient history and examination, and diagnostic imaging (widefield photography and angiography, ultrasonography, and optical coherence tomography (OCT). By seeking early detection of orbital and intraocular tumors, optometrists and ophthalmologists assist in providing better treatments with lower morbidity and mortality.
