Haag-Streit launches iScan80

Haag-Streit UK has launched the high-speed optical coherence tomography (OCT) system, the Optovue iScan80, in the UK.

The new iScan80 provides high-speed 80kHZ OCT at 80,000 A-scans per second, making it three-times faster than the original iScan system.

The device offers capabilities available on a traditional OCT, Haag-Streit outlined, but with a more simplified scan acquisition and a wider field of view, along with voice-guided scans.

Scans are acquired by positioning the patient with the iScan80’s Pupil Alignment Technology, and selecting the desired scan. The device then performs focus and alignment operations and ‘talks’ the patient through the exam, with 12 languages available.

The OCT is designed to be compact and portable, integrating the operator interface, display, patient interface, and scan head into one console.

The company suggests this makes the device ideal for small spaces, or for eye care professionals looking for versatility, as the iScan80 can be transferred between rooms or practices.

Jacqui Kenyon, HS-UK OCT product manager, commented, “The new iScan80 offers some fantastic improvements on the previous model. It boasts 80,000 A-scans, which is three times faster, new reports, and a wider field of view. It also features full automation and a compact design, making it a great choice for practices with limited space.”

Optovue’s iWellness scan feature is available with the new device. The solution helps to provide information to aid in early diagnosis, and management, of ocular disease, Haag-Streit shared. The scans include a retinal thickness map, highlighting thinning and thickening.

Further tools available with the iScan80 include retina mapping, retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) and Ganglion Cell Complex trend analysis, high-density 3D retinal imaging and in-depth 3D optic nerve head analysis. The device also features anterior scans ranging from pachymetry and epithelial thickness mapping, to angle scans and vault mapping.

The device has networking capabilities through the NetVue product suite, enabling the user to receive, review and modify images.
