The following article written by S.K. Steven Houston III, MD published in Retina Today provides a comprehensive review on the OCT features and functions.Read More
OCT angiography (OCT-A) is an emerging imaging modality with the potential to enhance the diagnostic understanding of various disease entities. It offers the possibility to visualize vascular networks in high-resolution and non-invasively as opposed to established imaging methods such as FA and ICGA angiography.Read More
The introduction of OCT technology puts powerful diagnostic capabilities in the hands of eye care professionals. In particular, for many diseases, general ophthalmologists and optometrists can now make diagnoses right in their own practice [...]Read More
Two decades since its introduction, OCT has become indispensable for research, screening, diagnosing, and monitoring diseases of the macula and optic nerve head.
In a high quality, high resolution OCT scan, at least 13 retinal layers can be identified, the names of which [...]Read More
The OCT2 Module brings the next generation of OCT technology to the SPECTRALIS® diagnostic imaging platform. It combines a high scan rate of 85,000 Hz with Heidelberg Engineering’s proprietary TruTrack Active Eye Tracking to provide excellent image quality and significantly improved acquisition speed.Read More
During a symposium on innovations for the diagnosis and imaging of vitreoretinal diseases at the recent World Ophthalmology Congress (WOC 2016), Dr. Ferrara, Tufts University School of Medicine, Boston, MA, provided evidence to support the high diagnostic value of ICG angiography [...]Read More
The Widefield Imaging Module provides a 55 degree field of view for all SPECTRALIS® fundus imaging modalities including MultiColor, BluePeak, infrared reflectance, angiography, and OCT.Read More
Dr. Kester Nahen, Managing Director of Heidelberg Engineering, explains in this interview the diagnostic potential and limitations of OCT angiography.
This novel technology makes it possible to visualize distinct vascular networks at different depths in the retina [...]Read More
