Images that Empower.

Harness the power of Spectral Domain and Swept-Source OCT to improve patient care

The SPECTRALIS® diagnostic imaging platform – a powerful combination of confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (cSLO), spectral domain OCT (SD-OCT) and patented eye-tracking technology has set the standard for multimodal retinal imaging for over a decade.

Now, Heidelberg Engineering has optimised the longer wavelength and lower sensitivity roll-off of swept-source OCT for imaging the anterior segment. ANTERION®* offers topography, tomography, anterior segment metrics and axial length in one upgradeable, modular device. The stunning swept-source OCT images empower clinicians with visual confirmation of the reliability and accuracy of the measurements.

Find out more about how Heidelberg Engineering has capitalized on the strengths of each OCT technology by optimizing each for specific ocular imaging applications.

*The ANTERION is not available for sale in the United States.

Resolution that Empowers.

Discover the true potential of OCT angiography.

High resolution imaging and precision eye tracking forms the basis for developing accurate analytics with real clinical value.

The SPECTRALIS OCT Angiography Module delivers high-resolution OCTA images with a lateral resolution of 5.7 μm/pix. Combined with the precision of TruTrack Active Eye Tracking, the OCTA Module enables fine capillary networks to be visualized in great detail.

The axial resolution of 3.9 μm/pix allows for segmentation of all four histologically-validated retinal vascular plexuses. Custom slabs within the superficial and deep vascular plexuses offer a more comprehensive clinical evaluation.

The projection artifact removal (PAR) tool utilizes information from the superficial vascular plexus to remove artifacts from OCTA images. This enables a more precise visualization of vascular structure and pathology.

SPECTRALIS High Magnification Module

Resolve microstructures and track change to gain insight into disease progression.

The SPECTRALIS High Magnification Module elegantly demonstrates the capability of confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (cSLO) to resolve ocular microstructures by reducing intraocular light scattering. These ocular microstructures can even be visualized in eyes with cataracts.

The image contrast and clarity obtained by combining laser light selectivity with confocal scanning are often not available from fundus photography, highlighting critical diagnostic details not visible on ophthalmoscopy.

After a region of interest has been identified using a larger field of view, the user can acquire ~8° magnified images at an enhanced resolution to investigate the area at an even higher level of detail. This possibility may provide unique insight into the progression of certain retinal diseases.


Flexibility that Empowers


Broaden your horizons with the power of the SPECTRALIS diagnostic imaging platform for supine patients

With the Flex Module, the SPECTRALIS is affixed to a movable stand with an adjustable and highly flexible arm.

Patients unable to sit up can be examined thoroughly and conveniently without sacrificing image quality.

All SPECTRALIS imaging modalities ranging from OCT to scanning laser fundus imaging and angiography are available in combination with the Flex Module.

Optionally, the Flex Module includes a backup battery with 20 minutes autonomy to avoid interruptions when moving the system between power outlets.

*The FLEX is not available for sale in the United States.
