The Ophthalmology Examinations Review: 3rd Edition

 Ophthalmology  Comments Off on The Ophthalmology Examinations Review: 3rd Edition
Nov 242019
 

Since the last Edition of Ophthalmology Examinations Review, there has been major new discovery in the understanding of common eye diseases, and new treatments and diagnostic procedures have been refined or newly developed.
A revised Edition reflecting these changes is warranted at this time. The aim and scope of the book will be consistent with the previous two editions in that it will provide a broad review for the final year ophthalmology resident and trainees taking the specialist ophthalmology examinations. The book deals primarily with key facts and topics that are important from an examination perspective. Only information and facts that are considered relevant and critical to the exams are covered, with topics that may be of scientific interest, but are not common to exams specifically left out. This book will help the resident organize and synthesize knowledge acquired from various other sources or textbooks. While not meant to replace standard textbooks, enough information is contained within the book to serve as the main revision text nearer the exams.
The style and format of this book is intentionally didactic, with questions and short answers. The answer includes a “model opening statement,” followed by a classification system to aid organization of facts and then by the bulk of the answer in concise short notes. Exam Tips are inserted to provide an insight into how to answer different types of questions and when appropriate, a Clinical Approach section is also included.
In the new edition, topics such as new understanding of disease mechanisms, new investigations (e.g. OCT), and new procedures and treatment (e.g. use of anti-vascular endothelial growth factors, new refractive surgical techniques, new corneal transplant) are covered.

Diffuse Optical Tomography: Principles and Applications

 Ophthalmology  Comments Off on Diffuse Optical Tomography: Principles and Applications
Nov 172019
 

Written by an authority involved in the field since its nascent stages, Diffuse Optical Tomography: Principles and Applications is a long-awaited profile of a revolutionary imaging method. Diffuse Optical Tomography (DOT) provides spatial distributions of intrinsic tissue optical properties or molecular contrast agents through model-based reconstruction algorithms using NIR measurements along or near the boundary of tissue.

Despite the practical value of DOT, many engineers from electrical or applied mathematics backgrounds do not have a sufficient understanding of its vast clinical applications and portability value, or its uncommon advantages as a tool for obtaining functional, cellular, and molecular parameters. A collection of the author’s research and experience, this book fuses historical perspective and experiential anecdotes with fundamental principles and vital technical information needed to successfully apply this technology―particularly in medical imaging.

This reference finally outlines how to use DOT to create experimental image systems and adapt the results of laboratory studies for use in clinical applications including:

– Early-stage detection of breast tumors and prostate cancer

– “Real-time” functional brain imaging

– Joint imaging to treat progressive diseases such as arthritis

– Monitoring of tumor response

– New contrast mechanisms and multimodality methods

This book covers almost every aspect of DOT―including reconstruction algorithms based on nonlinear iterative Newton methods, instrumentation and calibration methods in both continuous-wave and frequency domains, and important issues of imaging contrast and spatial resolution. It also addresses phantom experiments and the development of various image-enhancing schemes, and it describes reconstruction methods based on contrast agents and fluorescence DOT.

Offering a concise description of the particular problems involved in optical tomography, this reference illustrates DOT’s fundamental foundations and the principle of image reconstruction. It thoroughly explores computational methods, forward mathematical models, and inverse strategies, clearly illustrating solutions to key equations.

 Ophthalmology, Uncategorized  Comments Off on Ophthalmology and the Ageing Society
Oct 052019
 

The ageing of the world’s population is one of the major achievements of modern society. By 2050, an estimated 2 billion people will be aged 60 years or over. However, ageing poses major challenges and this is especially true for the field of ophthalmology, given that the major eye diseases – age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataract – predominantly affect the elderly. The challenges facing ophthalmology in an ageing society have not previously been addressed in a comprehensive way, although there are common denominators of the various eye diseases that affect the elderly. This book provides such a comprehensive overview encompassing epidemiology, risk factors, current treatment and prophylaxis, disability, co-morbidity, and the impact on quality of life. World leaders in their respective fields provide state-of-the-art knowledge on the geriatric aspects of ophthalmology that will help to improve the management of this growing patient population.

The Ophthalmology Examinations Review (Second Edition)

 Ophthalmology  Comments Off on The Ophthalmology Examinations Review (Second Edition)
Jun 202018
 

Many new treatments and diagnostic procedures in ophthalmology have been refined or newly developed during the past four years, a new edition reflecting these changes is most timely.

The scope and aim of the book will be consistent with the first edition, which provides a broad review of the specialist ophthalmology examinations for final year ophthalmology residents and trainees. The book deals primarily with key facts and topics that are important from the examination perspective. Only information and facts that are considered relevant and critical to the exams are covered, with topics that may be of scientific interest, but are not commonly tested in exams, specifically left out. Time-challenged readers will also benefit from the knowledge acquired from various other sources or textbooks that are now organized and synthesized in this book. While not meant to replace the standard textbooks, enough information is contained within the book to serve as the main revision text nearer the exams.

The style and format of this book is intentionally didactic, with questions and short answers. The answer includes a "model opening statement," followed first by a classification system to aid organization of facts, and then the core explanation in concise short notes. "Exam Tips" are inserted to provide an insight into techniques of answering different types of questions and when appropriate, a "Clinical Approach" section is also included.

In the new edition, topics such as new understanding of disease mechanisms (e.g., genetics of eye diseases), new investigations (e.g., OCT), and novel procedures and treatment (e.g., the use of antivascular endothelial growth factors, new refractive surgical techniques) are covered.

This book will be a valuable guide to the final year ophthalmology residents and trainees taking the specialist ophthalmology examinations

Editorial Reviews

Review

“It is an excellent review for the ophthalmologist studying for the board examinations. It is well organized, simple and direct … and should be used by clinicians in training long before the eleventh hour.”
— Archives of Ophthalmology

“… it is ideally suited for any candidate taking basic qualifying tests in ophthalmology anywhere in the English speaking world … It is quite a remarkable and comprehensive fund of information and must surely contain every question ever put by any examiner in an oral/viva examination and also covers all the published syllabuses both for basic sciences and clinical components of our examinations … Trainees, therefore, might consider the use of this book as a reasonable guarantee for success in the examinations mentioned provided preliminary reading has been completed. It could also be of assistance to harassed examiners in drawing up suitable lists of topics for viva examinations and, in addition, assist them in the difficult task of setting and checking MCQ papers.”— The Surgeon

“Unique in its format, this review is both intentionally didactic and repetitive and focuses on most commonly addressed examination subjects … Each topic is introduced in question format and the key learning points then summarized succinctly. This style of presentation is unique and particularly useful to those preparing for oral examinations, as it clearly breaks down general questions for easy and organized responses. Additionally, the margins contain several examination tips, which may be useful in studying for written and particularly oral examinations … Overall, the format and organization of this review book sets it apart from others. Despite potential differences between the American and British training and examinations, this review may be useful as an adjunctive study guide in preparation for the American boards or the OKAP.”— American Journal of Ophthalmology

“Granted this book is addressed primarily to those who take the British style examinations but it could be easily used by trainees in countries where exams are slightly different … Overall, Dr Wong includes an enormous amount of information in just over 400 pages, and has done so in an attractive way. The book is easy to read with outline forms and lots of highlighted information in box or table presentations.”— British Journal of Ophthalmology
