      Groundbreaking Zeiss Kit Used in First Eye Surgeries

      Combination of optical coherence tomography with surgical microscope gives surgeons 'unprecedented' views. Combination kit used in live surgery A new kind of surgical microscope from Zeiss that features integrated intra-operative optical coherence tomography (OCT) is now being used by ophthalmic surgeons. Said to provide those surgeons with unprecedented views of transparent ocular structures during operations, the visualization tool combines two “gold standard” techniques into a single system for the first time. According to the Germany-based optics and optical technology giant's Meditec subsidiary, as well as being able to see transparent structures of the eye during surgery, surgeons can also ...

      Ultrafast Laser Systems Are Stepping Up to Meet Industry Needs

      The wide spectral bandwidth of ultrafast lasers also is useful in optical coherence tomography, widely used to provide 3-D images of tissue. Here, the very broad spectral output of supercontinuum lasers allows for very high axial resolution imaging in multiple user-defined wavelength bands optimized for the tissue being imaged. “The high power and spectral brightness of supercontinuum lasers also allows for deep-tissue imaging, such as in highly scattering media, or in vivo imaging, where signal levels can be very low,” Seaton said.
