TOTAL IMAGING SOLUTION
The innovative Flex A-Scan offers clinicians an unmatched level of usability and accuracy. Unique measurement guidance features assist in achieving optimal measurement values. These features allow the user to focus on application technique while the device’s software performs real-time waveform analysis and provides immediate feedback to the user.
The DGH Software supports multiple IOL formulas, including post-refractive formulas. A-Scan measurements can be taken via direct corneal contact or via water immersion method (Prager Shell® included).
A-Scan Measurement Features
A unique grading algorithm automatically ranks the probe’s alignment along the axis of measurement. Alignment ranking is immediate, with each qualified measurement assigned a 1-star, 2-star or 3-star rank (3-star representing best alignment). Aided by the audible feedback, the user can adjust the probe’s contact angle during a procedure, correcting misalignments and thereby optimizing measurement.
Unique compression lockout feature for use during contact measurements. When enabled, compression lockout will stop the system from measuring waveforms which show indications of corneal compression. Audible tones are provided to guide the user in adjusting contact pressure and aid in alleviating flattening of the cornea. The compression sensitivity level is adjustable to aid in obtaining contact measurements with minimum compression.
The Scanmate Flex B-Scan probe enables clinicians to capture clear and precise images and videos of the posterior segment of the eye. Ultrasonic B-scans are effective, even when opacities (such as dense cataract, blood, or anatomical structures) are present which obscure optical technologies.
The B-Scan probe is available in both 12.5 MHz and 20 MHz frequencies. Among the on-screen tools are calipers to measure structures, an area measurement tool and an annotation tool that gives you a way to indicate pathologies on the image.
B-Scan Diagnostic Applications
The Flex B-Scan delivers clear images of the posterior portion, even when optical clarity is compromised. B-Scan imaging can aid the evaluation of:
- Retinal Detachments
- Vitreous Detachments
- Vitreous Humor Pathologies
- Posterior Segment Pathologies
- Choroidal Pathologies
- Optic Nerve Pathologies
- Scleral Thickening
The UBM is indispensable when imaging the anterior segment. High-resolution UBM images provide the ability to observe structures concealed by the iris or corneal opacities.
Typical applications of the high resolution images obtained with either a 35 MHz or 50 MHz transducer include sulcus-to-sulcus measurement, angle-closure, and anterior chamber pathologies. The Scanmate software provides tools for angle, area and length measurement along with an annotation tool for indicating pathologies. A water-filled single use sterile Clear Scan® Probe cover is the only component that touches the eye.
UBM Diagnostic Applications
The Flex UBM delivers clear images for the anterior segment, and the technology is presently being utilized in procedures such as:
- ACA Measurements
- Post-Lasik Corneal Evaluation
- IOL Position Monitoring
- Pre-Operative ICL Evaluation
- Diagnosis of Iris and Ciliary Cysts
- Glaucoma Post Surgery Evaluations
