Ocular Radiation

We discuss the different types of radiation used in ophthalmology, and the ocular side effects of radiation. 

Many of ophthalmology trainees have or may be pulled soon to help staff the inpatient wards or the ICU give the current COVID19 pandemic. This week, we talk with Dr. Yuri Matusov, soon to be chief Pulm/ICU fellow at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, about how he takes COVID19 patients inpatient and in the ICU, geared for the outpatient specialist!

We review the Large, Medium and Small COMS studies, which have helped shape our understanding and management of ocular melanoma, and are foundational for any ophthalmologist to understand.

Also, dear listeners our frequent co-host Amanda Redfern is running a survey:

Are you a current ophthalmology resident or recent ophthalmology residency graduate? If so, I am conducting a survey on attitudes toward the intravitreal administration of anti-VEGF agents by non-retina specialists. It is a short, 5-10 minute, anonymous survey. All participants will have the opportunity to enter a raffle for a $100 amazon gift card.
