Heidelberg, Germany – Celebrating its 25th anniversary at the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) Meeting in Las Vegas, Heidelberg Engineering will present its latest diagnostic imaging technologies and services. For a quarter of a century, the company has been committed to delivering solutions to fundamental clinical needs in ophthalmology.
“Our focus is to offer integrated solutions that encompass state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging devices and image management solutions but also additional services such as patient and clinical education support”, said Dr. Kester Nahen, Managing Director of Heidelberg Engineering. “At the AAO we look forward to discussing with customers how established and new product platforms, IT technologies and services merge to facilitate their clinical decision making.”
Latest SPECTRALIS® modules
Heidelberg Engineering will be showcasing its state-of-the-art modules for the SPECTRALIS® Retina and Glaucoma Imaging Platform including the OCT Angiography Module*, the OCT2 Module with a high scan rate of 85,000 Hz. and the Widefield Imaging Module for simultaneous 55° fundus and OCT imaging.
New Cataract and Refractive Imaging Platform*
A new swept-source OCT-based Cataract and Refractive Imaging Platform* which was unveiled at the recent European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) meeting in Barcelona, will be exhibited for the first time in the United States. It allows comprehensive analyses, such as biometry for IOL calculation, corneal topography and tomography, anterior segment biometry, and anterior segment imaging. Based on an upgradable and modular design, it can be configured to meet the specific needs of the individual clinic.
Image management with HEYEX PACS*
The company’s HEYEX Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS)* allows the seamless integration of large volumes of data and images from Heidelberg Engineering’s and other manufacturers’ devices; thus providing the ability to access, review, and compare ophthalmic diagnostic images in single as well as multi-site settings within one application.
Patient education materials and Ophthalmic Practice App
To support practitioners’ efforts to explain and promote the benefits of OCT examinations, the Heidelberg Engineering Academy will also be launching various patient education materials at the AAO, including flyers, the patient website www.know-the-eye.com and an Ophthalmic Practice App available from the iTunes App Store.
