Heidelberg Engineering Academy Invites AAO 2018 Attendees to Experience Empowering Educational Sessions in Chicago

Franklin, MA – Heidelberg Engineering, a privately-held imaging solutions company focused on advanced diagnostic instruments and IT solutions for eye care professionals, will host an array of educational activities at the 2018 American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) Annual Meeting from October 27th to the 30th in Chicago. The meeting marks the launch of the SPECTRALIS® OCT Angiography (OCTA) Module.

At AAO we are discussing the clinical applications of our recently FDA-cleared OCT Angiography Module. The experience gathered by international groups shows that the combination of our live retinal eye tracking and our distinct OCTA algorithm generates OCTA images of great contrast and resolution that are directly correlated with structural OCT,” said Ram Liebenthal, General Manager of Heidelberg Engineering, Inc. “Additionally, we are pleased to offer a series of short, empowering educational in-booth sessions that feature an impressive lineup of leading clinicians who will offer insight into improving patient care through a multimodal imaging approach.”

These educational sessions will take place in Booth 2236 – South Building, Level 3, Hall A.
