Detailed diagnostic imaging


Breaking news from the floor of ESCRS

Heidelberg Engineering has been showing off BluePeak laser autofluorescence, a diagnostic imaging modality that the company reports provides a functional map of the RPE-photoreceptor metabolism allowing users to non-invasively view the health of the RPE. The latest addition to this is the new RegionFinder software that the company claims allows users to quantify atrophic areas easily and to reliably monitor changes over time.

BluePeak is available for all SPECTRALIS SD-OCT models as is the new Anterior Segment Module, which is the company claims, bringing a new dimension to anterior segment imaging. The module consists of an add-on lens and software and allows the device to capture simultaneous IR and OCT imaging of the cornea, sclera and chamber angle to provide a detailed 3D view of the anterior chamber. According to the company the dual-angle white-to-white scan provides a perspective of the iris and lens that is not visible with single-angle scans.

Visitors to the booth were also invited to experience the Heidelberg Edge Perimeter. This perimeter technology offers two stimuli in one perimeter: the Flicker-Defined-Form and the Standard Automated Perimetry. According to the company, by combining this with the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph they have created the first visual field device to read in structural information and to conjointly display structural and functional data in the new Structure-Function Map.
