Heidelberg, Germany – The delivery of the Widefield Imaging Module has begun for Heidelberg Engineering’s first customers. It provides the standard field of view of a mydriatic fundus camera for all SPECTRALIS® fundus and OCT imaging modalities, simplifying diagnostic protocols and facilitating the detection of peripheral pathology.
The Widefield Imaging Module provides a 55° field of view for all SPECTRALIS fundus imaging modalities including MultiColor, BluePeak, infrared reflectance, angiography, and also OCT. Covering the macula, the optic nerve head and areas beyond the vessel arcades in a single image, the Widefield Imaging Module facilitates comprehensive diagnostics.The high-resolution, high-contrast scanning laser images captured with this SPECTRALIS module offer diagnostic capabilities superior to conventional fundus photography.
Fundus imaging in combination with OCT have become indispensable technologies for eye care professionals, aiding in the diagnosis and follow-up of patients with a variety of diseases including glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and diabetic retinopathy.
The Widefield Imaging Module is one of the latest additions to the SPECTRALIS system, an expandable diagnostic imaging platform which combines scanning laser fundus imaging with high-resolution OCT.
E-Learning available too
For doctors and other operators to get familiar with the Widefield Imaging Module, Heidelberg Engineering Academy has just launched a video tutorial. It is an interactive video that allows for flexible and individual learning even when a SPECTRALIS device is not readily available. The tutorial can be downloaded on the Academy/Education section.
