Optopol unveils new software release

BiB Ophthalmic Instruments highlighted a number of “firsts” included in the new software update

Revo OCT

Optopol has released a new software update for its Revo OCT, Version 10.0.0, BiB Ophthalmic Instruments confirmed. The update includes a number of new clinical features, and what has been described as a number of firsts in optical coherence
tomography (OCT) development.

The software release includes a new posterior ‘Full Range’ feature that extends the retinal scan capability from a 12mm line scan to a 15mm line scan, which Optopol suggests is a first for low-cost OCT. The update provides a 25% increase in retinal visualisation in one scan, the company said, which facilitates greater clinical analysis and time savings.

The anterior ‘Full Range,’ and anterior chamber radial ‘Full Range’ examinations now provide a complete view of the anterior chamber, which the company suggested is a “world first, for what was essentially a posterior OCT.”

This capability provides complete cataract, cornea and glaucoma analysis with measurement and recording facility. Scans can be achieved without the use of an adaptor or additional forehead bar on the Revo FC devices.

The software also includes a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) DeNoise algorithm filter, in order to provide high quality and smooth images for improved visualisation of tomograms. By processing the original image, the algorithm enhances the visibility of morphological structures and provides greater detail within the retinal layers.

Along with the update, Optopol has introduced an add-on software, ‘IOL Formulas.’ The company explained: “Measuring axial length utilising the optional biometry measurement software has, until now, only been used for visualisation and measurement, ideal for those involved in myopia management. For clinics that want IOL calculations and formulas, Optopol have now made this possible with the add-on
software.”

The add-on sofware includes Hoffer Q, Holladay I, Haigis, Theoretical T and Regression II formulas, along with features for white-to-white and pupil diameter measurement.

Other improvements included in the new release include a post tracking feature that has been introduced for improved correlation using the Fovea or Disc centre for difficult cases. The software has also provided an improved structure and function analysis, comparing 10/2, 24/2 and 30/2 visual field results, as well as improved auto fundus registration and correlation.
