Call of Abstracts

 

The Diagnostic Imaging Department, King Khaled eye Specialist Hospital (KKES), Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is pleased to announce that the 3rd Diagnostic Imaging Symposium in Ophthalmology will be held on 01 – 02 December 2015, at KKESH, Riyadh.

Modern diagnostic imaging techniques have become necessary tools in our daily evaluation of ocular and orbital diseases as technical developments is evolving rapidly. Use of these techniques have helped in our ability to diagnose and treat many of ocular and orbital disease in their early stages, hence preventing visual loss and even saving lives in many cases. The purpose of this symposium is to provide recent developments and additional skills in the diagnosis of ophthalmological disorders, orbital emergencies, orbital vasculopathies, ocular and orbital tumors, ocular motility disorders by use of advanced imaging techniques. In particular, emphasis will be focused on applications of Ophthalmic Ultrasound, Computed Tomography (CT-Scan) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Orbital Doppler Ultrasound.

The indication and utilization of these diagnostic tools will be discussed by experts in the field of diagnosis and treatment of ocular and orbital disorders. Major aspects of the symposium will be focused on; Teaching Clinical and technical areas.

 

This event is set to enhance the current level of education and training of Radiologists, Ophthalmologists, and Diagnostic Imaging Technologists as well.

On behalf of the Scientific Committee of the symposium, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you and look forward to welcoming you to the 3rd Diagnostic Imaging Symposium in ophthalmology.

 

Sincerely,
