The field of retinal imaging in infants and children will be reviewed. Starting with artists' illustrations and then moving through fundus photography as far back as 1929, illustrations representing different pediatric retinal conditions will be shown. More recent technologies such as Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) and autofluorescence as diagnostic modalities for Stargardt's and Best's disease will be part of the course, along with a discussion of long standing established techniques such as fluorescein angiography, and how all of these modalities complement each other. Imaging of an array of pediatric retinal disorders such as Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP), Familial Exudative Retinopathy (FEVR), Coats disease, Incontinentia Pigmenti (IP), and x-linked retinoschisis will be presented. Upon completion of this one hour course, attendees will have recieved an overview of diagnostic tools that are helpful in identifying pediatric retinal disease.
