Heidelberg Spectralis OCT Multi-modality imaging with SPECTRALIS® is helping drive the development of novel therapeutics and changing the course of patient management in eye care. Using an upgradeable platform approach, SPECTRALIS has enhanced the role of spectral domain OCT by integrating it with confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (cSLO). The combination of these two technologies has enabled new imaging capabilities, such as TruTrack™ active eye tracking, and BluePeak™ blue laser autofluorescence, providing clinicians with unique views of the structure and function of the eye.

Video and Imaging Fluorescein and Indocyanide Green The transition from static flash photography to dynamic video imaging opens up a new world of diagnostic detail and is especially helpful in recording the fill cycle. SPECTRALIS FA can be combined with ICG angiography (ICGA), allowing the clinician to simultaneously view both retinal and choroidal blood flow. Clinicians can watch the dye coursing through the vessels and appreciate narrowing and partial blockage not always visible in static images.

Fundus Autofluorescense (FAF) Without the need for dye, non-invasive BluePeak™ blue laser autofluorescence imaging takes advantage of the natural fluorescent properties of lipofuscin. BluePeak autofluorescence captures fundus autofluorescence (FAF) images, providing both structural and metabolic information about the retina. Lipofuscin is a key component of RPE metabolism. Abnormal accumulation of lipofuscin is associated with a number of retinal diseases. Characteristic autofluorescence patterns seen in BluePeak images can reveal the extent of geographic atrophy (GA). It can also assist clinicians in determining the diagnosis and management of hereditary conditions such as Best’s disease and Stargardt’s disease. BluePeak imaging is a clinical endpoint in studies of emerging therapeutics for GA and is becoming an essential tool in the management of degenerative diseases of the retina.

Zeiss Cirrus OCT with anterior segment options CIRRUS HD-OCT 500 offers comprehensive care practices essential OCT capabilities with a broad range of clinical applications in an easy-to-learn, easy-to-use instrument. It aids in the management of glaucoma and retinal disease, retina assessment for cataract surgery and anterior segment imaging for corneal disease.

Optos retinal imaging The 200Tx device, designed specifically for general ophthalmologists and vitreoretinal specialists offers multiple wavelength imaging, including options for color, red-free, fluorescein angiography and autofluorescence. With simultaneous non-contact pole-to-periphery views of more than 80% or 200 degrees of the retina in a single capture, the 200Tx helps clinicians discover more evidence of disease and guide their treatment decisions.

Ellex Eye Cubed Ultrasound The Eye Cubed ultrasound uses sound waves to visualize the back of the eye with imaging and video capabilities. In instances where the back of the eye can't be seen either by a mature cataract or vitreous hemorrhage (bleed in back of the eye) the ultrasound is the best method of visualizing the retina. The Eye Cubed ultrasound also is great for measuring lesions or tumors in the back of the eye for documenting the size.
