Canon Europe has recently launched an online education hub for eyecare professionals and run its first optical coherence tomography (OCT) symposium at The World Ophthalmology Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
Tom Jacques, Director of Canon Medical Imaging Group, commented: “OCT technology is evolving at a rapid pace and it’s important for the industry to share information and expertise to understand what is possible through OCT and the software features available. The symposium is a great opportunity for eyecare professionals to meet and discuss this growing technology, and that our new educational website will be a beneficial platform for users to build knowledge in this field.”
The symposium is titled “current and future clinical applications with Canon OCT” and renowned speakers presented unique clinical cases and showed the extensive clinical applications possible with the Canon OCT-HS100 and the Canon Angio Expert software module. These speakers included Professor Kyoko Ohno-Matsui of Tokyo Medical and Dental University; Dr Sal Rassam; Dr Diana Iturralde Errea of Alto Deba Hospital in Spain; and Professor Tomohiro Iida of Tokyo Women’s Medical University. Canon Europe launched this new community website where users of a Canon OCT will have access to a wide range of educational material relating to the technology. The new website will help ensure users can make the most of their instrument through content including clinical case studies, podcasts, priority registration for symposia and webinars, as well as live education sessions during events in Europe. There are already plans to evolve the platform to become a truly interactive community, where all users can share their experiences..
