Content Notes


Historically, neuro-ophthalmology residents have had trouble making the transition from reading about the diagnostics of neuro-ophthalmologic lesions to making diagnoses in clinic. An interactive program would act as an intermediary between the text book learning phase and the clinical examination phase by providing an interactive program. The goal of this thesis was to create a web-delivered training guide that correlates clinical eye exams with lesion localization for neurologists. The guide used illustrations, animations, and MRI's to enhance the teaching of the diagnosis of neuro-ophthalmologic lesions found primarily in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients.
