    3. OCT Angiography Module for SPECTRALIS now available outside US

      OCT Angiography Module for SPECTRALIS now available outside US

      The SPECTRALIS ® expandable diagnostic imaging platform can be upgraded with the OCT Angiography Module to perform non-invasive, layer-by-layer examinations of flow in the vascular networks of the retina and choroid. The OCT Angiography Module can be added to new and existing upgradeable SPECTRALIS devices with the OCT2 Module. The multimodal imaging platform allows clinicians to compare OCT angiographies to other modalities such as structural OCT and dye-based angiographies as well as infrared, MultiColor and BluePeak images, dependent on the SPECTRALIS model. “In combination with other imaging modalities, OCT angiography enables a more comprehensive understanding of vascular abnormalities. The SPECTRALIS truly ...
