EXAMS / DISPENSING

Optovue Releases High Resolution Imaging System


More Images
Product: AngioVueHD Imaging and AngioVueHD Montage
Top Line: AngioVueHD Imaging, a new imaging system released by Optovue, provides OCTA scans with 73 percent more sampling points and improves image resolution by approximately 33 percent over the existing field-of-view, enabling physicians to more closely assess the fine vasculature in the eye for changes that could indicate ocular disease. The higher density OCTA imaging provides significant improvement in resolution and peripheral visualization of vasculature in the eye, according to Optovue.
“The improved density of AngioVueHD provides the high resolution resembling that of 3x3 millimeter scans—the size we previously used to obtain the highest image quality—yet in a larger, 6x6 millimeter format,” said Nadia Waheed, MD, MPH, associate professor of ophthalmology at Tufts Medical School and director of the Boston Image Reading Center. “As a result, we have much greater image resolution for the 6x6 millimeter field-of-view, allowing for better assessment of pathologies characterized by large or oblique lesions.”
Close Up: The company also released AngioVueHD Montage, which automatically combines two high-density images—one at the central macular region (the portion of the retina responsible for central, high-resolution color vision that is possible in good light), and the other centered at the optic disc (the entry point for the major blood vessels that supply the retina)—in a 10x6 millimeter field-of-view. The ability to automatically create the montage is useful for imaging vasculature in potential pathologies that may extend into the periphery of the imaging plane.
“Extending the AngioVueHD to include an automatic montage in an even wider 10x6 millimeter format will assist me in understanding lesions as they arise outside the macula,” continued Dr. Waheed.
Vital Stats: AngioVueHD Montage automatically combines two high-density images in a 10x6 mm field-of-view. (The image above are courtesy of Adil El Maftouhi, OD, Lyon, France)

Western Optical Supply Intros Post Pushing Plier


More Images
Product: #5121F Post Pushing Plier
Top Line: Western Optical Supply introduces a redesigned version of its Post Pushing Plier (#5121F). The plier can easily and safely extract the post and tubing from a compression rimless lens. This simple to use tool requires little effort to delicately push out the post and tubing from the holes due to the new parallel jaw design. It will not mar the lens. Extraction pins pivot easily to accommodate horizontal and vertical mounting systems.
Close Up: The plier now features a parallel jaw action which allows the push out pins to drop straight down on the posts in the lens. Pushing them out more cleanly avoids contacting the holes in the lens and chipping the lens.
