Optos plc, the leading medical retinal imaging company, part of Nikon Corporation, is pleased to announce that the newest generation Daytona, the only true ultra-widefield (UWF) imaging device was launched at the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
With a new appearance, updated user interface, improved optics, and additional features like laterality detection, this Daytona will meet the screening needs of eye care practices as its predecessor did.
Further to the new Daytona, the company launched the latest optomap image. New processing technology has been incorporated, which yields unrivaled clarity across the entire 200° image. The image detail will enable eye care providers to detect pathology more efficiently across the retina.
Silverstone, the only ultra-widefield imaging device with integrated swept source OCT that can scan across the retina and into the far periphery, has new functionality. The newest version of Silverstone software includes Repeat Scans. This feature is used for continuous monitoring of a lesion by locating and displaying a previous OCT scan location on the optomap. In addition, Explorer Mode was introduced and allows the user to display the location of all OCT scan areas on the optomap. Representative scan types (Line, Volume, etc.) are accessed by clicking on the representative scan. And the last new feature is auto contrast in angiography.
Robert Kennedy, CEO, Optos, commented, “I am delighted to bring to the market new devices and features which further support our customers and their patients. Over 1,000 clinical studies using our devices have firmly established that findings in the periphery impact detection, staging, and treatment of diseases such as DR, AMD, detachments, RVO, and uveitis. For this reason, ultra-widefield retinal imaging has become an essential tool in optometry and ophthalmology practices.”.
