iViews Imaging System Intros Paxos Scope and D-Eye Ophthalmic Solutions


Product: iViews Paxos Scope and the iViews D-Eye Ophthalmic Solutions
Top Line: iViews Imaging System’s iViews Paxos Scope Solution and iViews D-Eye Ophthalmic Solution are designed to meet the demand for portable instruments that enable eyecare professionals to capture, transmit, and view patient images, in compliance with HIPAA.
Close Up: The Paxos Scope Solution is a smartphone add-on imaging device that allows physicians and researchers to monitor patient data in real time with iViews. It is a reimbursable service for remote imaging for monitoring and management of active retinal disease. Physician use of DigiSight’s mobile ophthalmic camera with qualified patients is a covered service under CPT codes and details can be found at http://www.DigiSight.net. Paxos Scope is the only combined anterior and posterior segment mobile imaging system available for smartphones, incorporating advanced technology licensed from Stanford University. The system features secure storage, built-in variable intensity light source for patient comfort and a universal mounting and alignment mechanism.
The D-Eye (digital eye) Ophthalmic Solution is a mobile sensing and examination device, paired with iViews Imaging software. D-Eye works on the principles of direct ophthalmology and leverages the smartphone autofocus capability to account for a patient’s refractive error. Smartphone ophthalmoscopy with the D-Eye system can accurately detect retinal lesions for diabetic retinopathy (DR) and may be used as a screening tool, according to the American Journal of Ophthalmology.
“Current technology has virtually removed physical location and the investment in cumbersome medical equipment as an obstacle to viewing and diagnosing patients’ eye health,” said James M. Nielsen, MD, of Nielsen Eye Center in Clearwater, Fla. “Imaging plays a critical role in the eyecare and overall patient health. The inclusion of iViews Imaging software with the Paxos Scope as a tool for our physicians and techs allows us to take retinal images in our clinic and in any location outside our office, so that we can care for patients beyond our four walls.”

In addition, Icare ic100 also features Icare AMS, an automated measuring sequence that takes a series of six measurements with the touch of a button.
