Attendee, Dr Manoj Parulekar, Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, commented, “This was a very valuable course. The hands on sessions were very useful, especially the biometry and UBM. Myself and my colleagues found it very informative and inspiring.”
Grahame Wood, National Sales Manager for HS-UK said, “The event enabled consultants to gain hands-on experience with the Eye Cubed Ultrasound. It allowed them to see anterior structures such as the cornea, iris, ciliary body, crystalline and intraocular lens more clearly than ever before. We are delighted with how well-received the product was during the course, and were thrilled to have had a record number of attendees.”
The Eye Cubed is renowned for its unparalleled sensitivity and highest-quality image resolution, the system features real-time imaging, advanced movie mode (using the fastest sampling rate available), and internal memory for storage of measurements – all of which advance and improve the diagnostic process.
Phillipe Maury, Vice President for Ellex, said, ““This was the most successful Eye Cubed Ultrasound Course that we have ever organised, World-wide. I would like to thank Haag-Streit UK, our valued event Partner and, of course, our distinguished Speakers; Hatem Atta, Bertil Damato, Andrzej Dmitriew and Michel Puech. The feedback from the delegates has been phenomenal.”
