In News by celinecq

Lorenzo Sala will present at the annual ARVO Conference (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology), in Honolulu on  May 2, 2018  during session number 439, Capillaries, Blood Flow, OCT Angiography, at 11:45 AM to 12:00 PM. More than 11000 researchers are expected to attend the conference.

He will talk about Analysis of IOP and CSF alterations on ocular biomechanics and lamina cribrosa hemodynamics, a joint work with C. Prud’homme, G. Guidoboni, M. Szopos, B.A. Siesky and A. Harris.

Normal tension glaucoma (NTG) is a form of primary open angle glaucoma in which there is no significant elevation of intraocular pressure. Medical studies have not yet been able to identify modifiable risk factors for NTG before vision loss becomes advanced and irreversible. 

Starting from clinical measurements (such as blood pressure, intraocular pressure, cerebrospinal fluid pressure), our proposed mathematical virtual model can simulate patient-specific situations and may predict unphysiological behaviors. 

Thanks to the hemodynamical and biomechanical three-dimensional virtual images and the computation of key values provided by our simulator, a new set of clinical informations is available to doctors for a more suitable diagnosis.
