Fremont, CA (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
Optovue, a pioneer in spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), has received FDA 510(k) clearance of the Normative Database for the iVue SD-OCT system. The Normative Database provides analysis information to be used as a clinical reference to aid in the diagnosis and management of ocular health and disease. The addition of this diagnostic tool enhances iVue’s comprehensive suite of clinical applications for retina, optic disc, and anterior segment.
The iVue Normative Database provides quantitative comparisons of the retina, retinal nerve fiber layer, ganglion cell complex, and optic disc measurements to aid the practitioner in the evaluation of various ocular pathologies. After scans are captured, the normative comparison analysis adjusts for the patient’s age, optic disc size (for optic nerve head scans only), and scan signal strength, a feature that is unique to Optovue. Symmetry and change analyses combined with normative comparisons supports confident patient evaluation and management.
The Normative Database is included with any iVue SD-OCT system purchase and a new software update will be provided free-of-charge to all current iVue owners of record. This update is expected to be made available in early March.
