Harlow, Essex (PRWEB UK) 4 February 2015
Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, was appointed sole distributor of the Optovue, Inc. product portfolio in the UK today (4th February 2015).
The Optovue portfolio includes the; Angiovue OCT Angiography system, iVue, iFusion, iScan and XR Avanti OCT products. HS-UK will officially launch the Optovue iFusion and the new iScan on stand M140 at the 100% Optical event in London on the 7th February.
iScan is easy-to-use and requires minimal training. It has a small footprint and is ideal for a range of clinical settings. The fully-integrated system includes a full suite of retina, optic nerve and anterior segment scans with normative database comparison. It detects the eye to be scanned, aligns the camera over the pupil and optimises the scan signal strength. After completing scan acquisition, iScan evaluates each scan to ensure quality data has been captured.
iFusion combines the best of Spectral-Domain OCT and Fundus imaging by adding the powerful OCT capabilities of iVue and high-quality imaging from the iCam retinal camera mounted on a single, integrated, versatile platform that will add value to any practice.
The revolutionary new Angiovue OCTA system is the world’s first commercial OCT angiography system. This innovative OCT system is a non-invasive and dyeless technique for quickly evaluating functional blood flow of the retina and optic nerve head. The Angiovue provides the clinician with high-resolution images of the dynamic vascular structures throughout any individual layer of the eye.
The new Angiovue OCTA system will be showcased at the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCO) Annual Congress in May.
