1. Spectral-domain OCT unit offers high-quality retinal and anterior segment imaging

    Key Biscayne, FL—Although many practices have used optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology for years, the newer spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) units generate high-resolution scans that make three-dimensional (3-D) macular and optic nerve rendering and "fly-through" possible, and many practices are looking to get on board with the new technology, said Elias Reichel, MD, vice chairman for research and education, Department of Ophthalmology, Tufts University School of Medicine, and director, vitreoretinal diseases, New England Eye Center, Boston. The high-resolution scan patterns these devices produce allow for observation of fine macular pathologies.

    1. The Cirrus HD-OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec), for example, has a very easy system for image acquisition. It's also a very compact device that can be a good choice for practices in which space is limited.
    2. The RTVue-100 is a versatile in strument for general ophthalmology practice...You can perform both anterior and posterior segment imaging with this device, and it also provides very high-quality retinal imaging. The capability to do both retinal and anterior segment imaging in one machine should be a very attractive consideration for a general ophthalmologist.
