Glaucoma Module Premium Edition for SPECTRALIS to be Showcased at Annual Optometric Press Conference
Continued Precision in Glaucoma Diagnostics from Heidelberg Engineering
Heidelberg Engineering GmbH, the global ophthalmic imaging company, is presenting the Glaucoma Module Premium Edition for SPECTRALIS at the annual 2014 American Academy of Optometry Professional Press Conference in Denver, CO.
The Glaucoma Module Premium Edition for SPECTRALIS* module combines a proprietary technology called Anatomic Positioning System (APS) with a series of unique scan patterns. The APS creates an anatomic map of each eye. The center of the optic nerve head and the fovea are detected via a short pre-scan function. The map is aligned according to these anatomical landmarks, individually for each eye. Subsequent scans are oriented to this axis and automatically centered on the optic nerve head, ensuring the relevant structures are precisely examined. The combination of the APS feature and unique scan patterns for analysis of the optic nerve head, the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and the ganglion cell layer will aid clinicians in making correct and early diagnoses of glaucoma. The presentation will describe these new unique scans and how they improve glaucoma diagnostics using OCT technology.
