Heidelberg to Showcase Anterion Platform

While it may be almost impossible to physically attend the 39th Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) in Amsterdam this October, eye care professionals can go online to hear the latest from exhibitors including Heidelberg Engineering.

At this year’s event, from 8–11 October, Heidelberg will showcase Anterion – its platform for optical biometry and intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation, both at its booth and via a Satellite Symposium for virtual attendees.

Anterion’s biometric measurements stand out because they consider all refractive surfaces – including the posterior corneal and IOL geometry – for informed surgery planning.

Heidelberg states that the Anterion imaging platform is optimised for the anterior segment, combining high-resolution imaging, corneal tomography, optical biometry and IOL power calculation. Recent positive feedback will be presented at ESCRS.

“We are pleased to announce that Anterion’s functionality has now been repeatedly validated by leading international clinicians,” said Steven Thomson, Clinical Director Anterior Segment at Heidelberg Engineering. “We look forward to Prof Dr Oliver Findl from Austria presenting the evidence on its measurement accuracy and precision.

“We are equally encouraged by the new levels of prediction accuracy in challenging eyes and also very grateful that Dr Kjell G. Gundersen and Dr Bjørn Gjerdrum from Norway will share their results alongside ideas for further enhancements.”

Mr Thomson added that the company has also been working with Dr Damien Gatinel and Dr Alan Saad from France to ensure that Anterion data, combined with SCORE, a corneal ectasia risk analysis application, has the potential to set new standards when screening for corneal disease.

All of these clinicians will present their findings at an Industry Satellite Symposium on Friday, 8 October from 11.30–12.30pm AEST, which will be streamed on the ESCRS virtual platform too.

The presentation is entitled “Anterion – Better Solutions by Accuracy” and includes the following sections:

  • Prof Dr Oliver Findl, Hanusch Hospital, Vienna, Austria on, Validated precision and accuracy,
  • Dr Kjell G. Gundersen and Dr Bjørn Gjerdrum, IFocus Eye Clinic, Haugesund, Norway on Reproducible outcomes in difficult eyes, and
  • Dr Damien Gatinel, Rothschild Foundation, Paris, France on Screening for subclinical corneal ectasia with SCORE Analyser.

“Our team looks forward to meeting our customers and collaborators in person after so many months of only virtual interaction,” said Krysten Williams, Head of Global Marketing and Education. “We hope that our multimodal approach to streamlining clinical workflow throughout the pandemic will continue to help clinicians as they tackle the patient backlog moving forward.”

In addition to the latest news on Anterion, ESCRS attendees will be able to hear about new Spectralis =® features and related healthcare IT solutions such as Heyex 2. According to Heidelberg, Spectralis, the multimodal imaging platform optimised for the posterior segment, now features new components that lead to powerful synergies and improved workflows.
