(EP-118) Ocular Telemedicine in the Age of Automation and Advanced Communication Interfaces

Tuesday, April 25
10:15 AM - 10:29 AM
Location: Experience Zone - ePosters

Ocular telemedicine has the potential to lessen risk of vision loss and transform the manner ocular care is provided. Recent advances in communication interfaces and automation along with mobile and telecommunications technology is fueling the medical care industry's interest in new methods and technologies to deal with ocular health and performance. Automation and emerging advanced communication platforms such as augmented and virtual reality may successfully lead to the clinical application of more precise and efficient tele-ophthalmology systems for the benefit of patients. In this talk, we will overview interesting applications piloted or adopted in healthcare settings that could potentially reform the patient experience, improve clinical outcomes, deliver innovative new therapies, and better train healthcare professionals.

Delia Cabrera DeBuc

Research Associate Professor
University of Miami

Delia Cabrera DeBuc received her Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics (2002) from the University of Michigan. She is currently a Research Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. She is a biophysicist with specific training in imaging technology and image analysis. Her research group has been supported by grants from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the National Eye Institute. She has presented nationally and internationally on various aspects of ocular imaging analysis and corneal biomechanics. Her research interests include medical applications of ultrafast laser technology and optical imaging, with a particular focus on the human eye, including constitutive modeling of the cornea, computational simulation of novel surgical procedures along with the development and application of quantitative ophthalmic imaging analysis to enhance ocular health capabilities. Aside from ophthalmic-image processing research, she is also actively involved taking the leading role in ocular telehealth applications as well as in clinical research related to novel ocular imaging biomarkers in central nervous system’ neurodegenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Cabrera DeBuc is currently an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging and an editorial board member of Scientific Reports. She is a member of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, the American Telemedicine Association, the American Physical Society and a Senior member of the SPIE.
