    Harnessing power of swept-source OCT

    TAKE HOME MESSAGE: An anterior segment diagnostic imaging platform based on high-speed swept-source OCT is being developed by Heidelberg Engineering. It will provide biometry as well as corneal topography and tomography, while also enabling visualization of the anterior and posterior lens surfaces and assessment of the anterior chamber angle.

     

     

    An anterior segment diagnostic imaging platform based on high-speed swept-source OCT is still under development, but being looked at with great interest by cataract and refractive surgeons because of the breadth and detail of the information it will provide.

    The system from Heidelberg Engineering was previewed at the XXXIII ESCRS Congress in September, 2015 and can be seen at the Heidelberg booth in the technical exhibit hall at the AAO meeting in November, 2015. It will obtain anterior and posterior corneal topography and tomography, total corneal power, axial length, anterior chamber depth, and lens thickness. In addition, it enables visualization of the anterior and posterior lens surfaces along with assessment of the anterior chamber angle. Importantly, acquisition of all of these data and images is completed with the convenience of a single scan, and the information is provided to the examiner in a customizable printout.
