C139 - Eye Movement Disorders: A Systematic Approach to the Evaluation of Diplopia

Event Time: Tuesday May 7, 2019 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Neuro-ophthalmology/Neuro-otology
Director(s): Janet Rucker MD
Description: Correct localization is the primary objective in the evaluation of diplopia. Faculty will present a systematic approach to localizing diplopia, including basic and advanced concepts and diagnostically challenging cases. Interactive video-based case examples presented as unknowns will facilitate audience discussion and immediate application of new skills to diagnose diplopia localizing to extraocular muscle, neuromuscular junction, cranial nerve, nuclear, and supranuclear locations. Topic discussions will include pearls, pitfalls, and pathognomonic signs in localization.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to localize diplopia via utilization of basic and advanced examination skills and to recognize the wide-range of clinical diagnoses of patients with diplopia via participation in evaluating diagnostically challenging case presentations.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Practice-based Learning and Improvement
