ZEISS Introduces New OCT Family

Medical technology provider Carl Zeiss has announced the introduction of a new family of ZEISS OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography).

The new Cirrus OCT family comprises two new Cirrus HD-OCT products; models 5000 and 500, and two new integrated multi-modality OCT and fundus imaging systems; the Cirrus photo models 800 and 600. The company claims that the new OCT platforms deliver clinical and workflow solutions that span the spectrum of care and address specific workflow and practice needs.

“The new Cirrus family offers a choice of high-quality ZEISS OCT clinical solutions for the diagnosis and management of glaucoma and retinal disease across all levels of care, from comprehensive practices to advanced subspecialty practices,” says Kylee Hall, Medical Division Manager of Carl Zeiss Australasia.

“Eye care professionals can now benefit from diagnostic and workflow solutions that are tailored specifically for the level of care they provide, their practice workflow and their case load volumes. The new family of OCT products enable more eye care professionals to offer patients a high level of care and to tailor their investment to their workflow and practice needs.”

The Cirrus photo 800 and 600 multi-modality systems combine standard-setting Cirrus OCT technology with full-featured mydriatic/non-mydriatic fundus imaging…

High Resolution Retinal Tracking

The Cirrus HD-OCT 5000 has been optimised for advanced care with new FastTrac retinal tracking that enables high resolution B-Scans to be captured in identical locations from visit to visit, providing accurate assessment of change in targeted pathologies. FastTrac compensates for eye motion during scanning and can be optionally turned on to assist with poor fixators to optimise patient throughput.

Both the Cirrus HD-OCT 5000 and 500 feature a new OCT platform with faster processing and OCT camera systems.

Ms. Hall, Medical Division Manager, Carl Zeiss Australasia says: “the new contemporary designs with larger viewing monitors and wireless keyboard and mouse fit into today’s modern practice environments.

“Both models come equipped with ZEISS‘ comprehensive suites of clinical applications for retina and glaucoma and with time-based historical data and normative data comparison analysis tools to support efficient and confident patient management.

“The Cirrus photo 800 and 600 multi-modality systems combine standard-setting Cirrus OCT technology with full-featured mydriatic/non-mydriatic fundus imaging in one integrated compact and versatile system. Practitioners can correlate data from high-density OCT cubes, thickness and layer maps with results from superb color fundus, and angiography images in one imaging session without the need to move the patient.

“The Cirrus photo 800 is designed to support advanced disease management with fluorescein and ICG angiography, color and fundus autofluorescence imaging, and OCT technology in an integrated imaging solution. The Cirrus photo 600 combines non-mydriatic color imaging and OCT with a fundus autofluorescence option and is designed for comprehensive eye care practices needing efficient fundus imaging and essential OCT capabilities for assessment and management of a broad range of conditions,” says Ms. Hall.
