The event took place at the Sheraton Heathrow Hotel and was well-attended by 60 delegates, from thirteen different countries, who learnt about the latest advances in ophthalmic ultrasound. Delegates were educated about the fundamentals of high-resolution ophthalmic echography in a series of clinical lectures and hands-on workshops.

The event had an impressive expert faculty, chaired by Hatem Atta, Consultant Ophthalmologist, NHS Grampian. Other speakers included:

  • Andrzej Dmitriew, Consultant Ophthalmologist, Poznan University of Medical Sciences

The programme included lectures on ‘Ultrasonography of Ocular Tumours’ and ‘Evaluation of Vitreoretinal Disorders’ and workshops which demonstrated ‘Posterior B-Scan examination’ and ‘Techniques for UBM examination.’ During the workshops, delegates were given the opportunity to partake in some hands-on experience with both the Eye Cubed and the newly-launched portable Eye One ultrasound platforms.

Grant Duncan, HS-UK Clinical Training Manager, said, “We were delighted with the excellent feedback from this event. A significant number of delegates have expressed interest in more advanced training, which we have already started planning and will take place in 2017.”
