Dr. Nathan Radcliffe
With the increasing availability of spectral domain OCT, there has been much attention paid to how this and related techniques can provide precise and quantitative information about the optic nerve. At the same time, there is heightened interest in the use of digital photography to monitor progression of glaucoma, as it has proven a reliable and cost-effective method that doesn’t require consistent use of the same instrument or software to get reliable comparisons between follow-up and baseline images. In this webinar, Dr. Radcliffe will discuss some of the pros and cons of these techniques, and will talk about his experience with MatchedFlicker, a cloud-based software tool that can dramatically increase the utility of digital photos for monitoring changes in and around the optic nerve.
Dr. Nathan Radcliffe is the Director of the Glaucoma Service at Weill Cornell Medical College and New York Hospital in New York City. He is a dedicated teacher and researcher who is involved in numerous investigations related to the care of glaucoma patients. Dr. Radcliffe’s research interests include disc hemorrhage and parapapillary atrophy in glaucoma, use of optic nerve imaging (optical coherence tomography and flicker chronoscopy) in the evaluation of glaucoma and corneal properties in glaucoma. He is a surgical video competition enthusiast and is proud to have won the American Glaucoma Society's "Trabby" award in 2011.
