Another feature of the camera involves a live infrared preview of the fundus before the picture is taken to show what is about to be captured. Since the image is infrared, it is not uncomfortable for the patient.
This allows the photographer to confirm the image will be captured as desired, and avoid artifacts or poor quality images, which results in fewer re-captures or attempts to photograph each eye.
Because this system incorporates ultra-widefield imaging with true color and high resolution fundus imaging, it may eliminate the need to have a different camera for each of those purposes, saving on space and costs, and improving efficiency.
The images from the system are also fully supported by the company’s management system for integrating the device in a practice.
The system doesn’t currently have capabilities for fluorescein angiography or ICG, but these are planned as future upgrades.
