Heidelberg, Germany – Heidelberg Engineering will offer a preview of its cataract and refractive imaging platform* during this year’s Congress of the ESCRS in Barcelona. The platform
is based on an upgradable, modular design, which allows to configure each product to the specific diagnostic workflow in a practice or clinic. Main options include: IOL biometry, corneal topography/tomography, anterior segment biometry and anterior segment imaging.
The new platform is based on swept-source OCT technology. An important characteristic of the new platform is the fact that all measurements and analysis are based on high-resolution diagnostic images. This mitigates the effects of confounding factors such as coexisting abnormalities, which often cannot unambiguously be identified without diagnostic imaging. The new approach increases ophthalmologists’ confidence in the measurements.
“You actually see what you measure and measure what you see”, summarizes Dr. Kester Nahen, Managing Director of Heidelberg Engineering. “We are presenting a single, user-friendly device with biometry, corneal topography and tomography as well as anterior imaging functions which is bound to enhance productivity. Productivity is one of the central challenges in today’s cataract and refractive world”, adds Dr. Nahen.
Since 25 years Heidelberg Engineering is a leader in diagnostic imaging solutions for the posterior segment. With the new cataract and refractive imaging platform the company intends to achieve the same with the anterior segment.
The cataract and refractive imaging platform fully integrates with the company’s HEYEX PACS*, the next generation Heidelberg Eye Explorer platform which provides centralized management of diagnostic images in ophthalmology.
* Under development and not for sale yet.
