      Practitioners not taking full advantage of OCT capabilities

      Heidelberg Engineering has highlighted how practitioners can ensure they take full advantage of the diagnostic and monitoring capabilities of optical coherence tomography (OCT). The imaging solutions company shared insights into the technology through case study presentations at the launch event of its Glaucoma Imaging Atlas at the Royal Society of Medicine on 7 June. Opening the event, Heidelberg’s UK director of clinical affairs, Christopher Mody, described the atlas as “the most anticipated launch of any Heidelberg product.” Director of clinical research in Germany, Ali Tafreshi, then shared with attendees that most practitioners are not taking full advantage of the ...

    4. New cataract and refractive imaging platform to be unveiled by Heidelberg Engineering at European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery

      New cataract and refractive imaging platform to be unveiled by Heidelberg Engineering at European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery

      Heidelberg Engineering will offer a preview of its cataract and refractive imaging platform* during this year’s Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ESCRS) in Barcelona. The platform is based on an upgradable, modular design, which allows configuration to each product to the specific diagnostic workflow in a practice or clinic. Main options include: IOL biometry, corneal topography/tomography, anterior segment biometry and anterior segment imaging. The new platform is based on swept-source OCT technology. An important characteristic of the new platform is the fact that all measurements and analysis are based on high-resolution diagnostic images ...

    6. Heidelberg Spectralis OCT Eye Examinations in Space

      Heidelberg Spectralis OCT Eye Examinations in Space

      Since its arrival at the International Space Station (ISS) on June 15 th , 2013, Heidelberg Engineering’s Spectralis OCT device is being used regularly for eye examinations of ISS crewmembers. First on-orbit tests of the instrument were conducted successfully on June 21 of last year. The first ever OCT examination in space was performed with a commercial SPECTRALIS OCT device on board ISS on October 16, 2013. Since then, ISS crewmembers are being examined in 1- to 2-week intervals. The examinations are part of NASA’s Ocular Health Study, which seeks to understand ocular changes in astronauts during long-term space ...

      Heidelberg Engineering SPECTRALIS in Space

      Heidelberg Engineering Press Release- A SPECTRALIS OCT ophthalmic imaging device from Heidelberg Engineering is currently on its way to the International Space Station (ISS). The SPECTRALIS took off from Europe's Spaceport in Kourou on June 5th in the European Space Agency’s (ESA’s) Automated Transfer Vehicle “Albert Einstein” (ATV-4) atop an ARIANE 5 rocket. ATV-4 is scheduled to dock on the ISS on June 15. Soon thereafter, ISS crewmembers will use the SPECTRALIS for detailed examinations of the back of their eyes. This endeavour is part of a high priority NASA program to study the etiology of recently ...
