Optos UWF imaging technology offers the widest view of the retina

A study comparing the UWFFA imaging capabilities of the Optos 200Tx and a recently introduced module-based system confirms that the optomap® provides the widest field of view. Results published in Clinical Ophthalmology demonstrated that both systems provided excellent imaging of the peripheral retina although the Optos optomap covered at least 50% more retinal surface area with a single, non-steered shot and provided a wider view of the retina temporally and nasally, with the comparator system providing greater visualization of the peripheral vasculature of the superior and inferior retina.

Optomap-Diagnostic-Atlas

optomap® provides unprecedented visualization of retinal pathology in a single-capture digital image that can be readily annotated and shared. The new independently validated optomapDiagnostic Atlas™ displays pathologies that have been seen in our 200° view of the retina and is being supplied to doctors and staff to facilitate image interpretation and patient education.
