ABOUT THE EVENT
Keeler University is inviting technician teams as well as doctors to come together and learn. Join us on Saturday, September 7th for an in-depth course on B-Scan examination technique and diagnostic interpretation. This course has been awarded 6.5 JCAHPO Group A credit hours. Come join us for food, products, and learning. Seats are limited and on a first come first serve basis.
*This course is not sponsored by JCAHPO; only reviewed for compliance with JCAHPO standards and criteria and awarded continuing education credit accordingly; therefore, JCAHPO cannot predict the effectiveness of the program or assure its quality in substance and presentation.
The first half of the program focuses on principles and practices of standardized examination technique enabling the attendee to answer these and other important questions:
How do I know what that membrane is?
How do I obtain the best image of it?
How do I document its location?
How do I screen the entire eye?
How do I screen localized pathology?
How do I know where I am in the eye?
How do I measure lesions?
How do I get the best UBM image?
The second half of the program consists of case presentations illustrating B-Scan differentiation of the following ocular conditions:
Vitreous: Vitreous Hemorrhage, Endophthalmitis, Posterior Vitreous Detachment, PFV, Asteroid Hyalosis
Retina: Retinal Detachment, Retinal Tear, Macular Disease
Choroid: Choroidal Detachment, Choroidal Thickening
Sclera: Scleritis, Posterior Staphyloma, Scleral Buckle
Optic Nerve: Optic Disc Edema, Optic Disc Drusen, Optic Disc Cupping, Increased Subarachnoid Fluid
Mass Lesions: Choroidal Nevus, Choroidal Melanoma, Metastatic Carcinoma, Choroidal Hemangioma, Retinoblastoma, Choroidal Osteoma
Miscellaneous: Intraocular Gas, Air or Silicone Oil, Dislocated lens, Findings after Trauma

(A-Scan) imaging, localization and differentiation of ocular lesions/pathology in the globe, and Intra-operative Ultrasound Guidance: Radioactive plaque therapy for choroidal melanoma. Rhonda graduated from Emory University and became a Certified Ophthalmic Medical Technologist in 1984, then became a Certified Retinal Angiographer in 1986. She joined the staff at Emory Eye Center in 1988 and earned her Master of Medical Science in Ophthalmic Technology from Emory in 1994. She became a Registered Ophthalmic Ultrasound Biometrist in 1997 and a Certified Diagnostic Ophthalmic Sonographer in 2001. She was a certified echographer for the Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Study and she is the author of the B-Scan module in JCAHPO’s Refinements series as well as Medscape’s chapters on A-Scan Biometry and Ocular B-Scan Ultrasound. In 1999 she started her own company, Eye Scan Consulting, providing regional and private accredited educational seminars in Ophthalmic Biometry and Diagnostic B-Scan Ultrasound across the country and in Europe and Canada.
