Course Description

The International Retinal Imaging Symposium V will take place on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and will feature a series of lectures that will focus on the latest developments in retinal imaging, including: adaptive optics, fundus autofluorescence, ultra-widefield imaging, spectral domain and swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT), and OCT angiography. This conference will include a full day of lectures by many of the world’s experts in retinal imaging who will speak on recent innovations in retinal imaging that have occurred in this rapidly advancing field.

Our world-renowned faculty will aim to familiarize course participants with the newest evolving technologies and will guide and instruct our registrants in the application of these advanced systems and in the interpretation of novel imaging findings. This will help our participants better manage their patients with macular and retinal disease and achieve better patient outcomes in their practices.

We welcome your participation at IRIS which promises to provide insight and understanding in retinal imaging and showcase the integral importance of innovative retinal imaging in the evaluation and management of retinal disease.

Disclosures

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy now mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
