Visualization at the speed of Cirrus
Analyzing a single pathology from multiple views provides comprehensive insight and analysis of the clinical situation. How this helps you: Spot small areas of pathology. Tightly spaced B-scans, (either 30 or 47 μm apart), in the cube ensure that small areas of pathology are imaged. For reference, a human hair is about 40-120 μm in diameter. Visualize the fovea. Scans that are spaced further apart than in the CIRRUS cube may miss the central fovea. Fuel for analysis. Millions of data points from the cube are fed into the Zeiss proprietary algorithms for accurate segmentation, reproducible measurements and registration for change analysis. Take the pressure off the operator. As long as the scan is placed in the vicinity of the fovea or optic nerve, the software automatically centers the measurements after the capture. See the tissue from different perspectives. View the cube data from all angles, with 3D rendering, OCT fundus images and Advanced Visualization™. Future-ready. Previously captured CIRRUS cubes can be analyzed using new analyses.
Tracking at the speed of Cirrus
FastTrac™ reduces eye motion artifacts without sacrificing patient throughput with a proprietary scan acquisition strategy, high speed 20 Hz LSO camera, and single-pass alignment scanning
With FastTrac, scan at the highest resolution at the same location at each visit.
Assessment at the speed of Cirrus
Measurement centering with FoveaFinder and AutoCenter
On the macula, the unique FoveaFinder technology ensures the ETDRS and ganglion cell plus inner plexiform layer measurement frameworks are centered on the fovea.
AutoCenter™ function automatically centers the 3.4 mm diameter peripapillary RNFL calculation circle around the disc for precise placement and repeatable registration. The placement of the circle is not operator dependent. Accuracy, registration and reproducibility are assured.

OCT – Now A Tool For The Comprehensive Ophthalmologist

Ocular Surgery News U.S. Edition, June 10, 2012

According to Richard L. Lindstrom, MD optical coherence tomography has moved from being a tool primarily utilized by the retina subspecialist to one increasingly present in the comprehensive ophthalmologist’s office.

Time-domain OCT (TD-OCT) is a non-contact test that can be done by an ophthalmic technician to image the optic nerve, macula or retina. The OCT (SD-OCT), which is a higher-speed, higher-definition instrument that gives even better images, allowing resolution that includes individual cell layers including the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), photoreceptors, as well as a larger area of the retina or macula. The newest SD-OCT algorithms even allow 3-D reconstructions.

New strides are occurring in TD-OCT and SD-OCT to interpret retinal and macular thickness, RPE elevation and drusen size/volume in microns. In the future, it is anticipated that even cellular metabolic rates will be measurable. And similar technology is being applied in the anterior segment, promising great advances in diagnostic capability.

The classical abnormalities in dry age–related macular degeneration include drusen formation, pigment dispersion/clumping and focal atrophy of the RPE. Each of these findings can be observed, documented and measured with OCT. In addition, with SD-OCT, drusen size and volume can be measured, and the actual RPE cells at the edge of an area of geographic atrophy can be seen, allowing one to measure the rate of progression. Photoreceptor atrophy and changes in the choriocapillaris often accompany these changes and can be visualized. In wet AMD, one can visualize the area where abnormal vessels penetrate Bruch’s membrane, causing fluid or blood to accumulate under the RPE and resulting in a pigment epithelial detachment (PED) or fluid accumulation in the subretinal space or within the retina. The size and volume of a PED can be measured, as can the overlying retinal thickness, potentially allowing earlier diagnosis and, when treated, monitoring of the response to therapy.

For the cataract surgeon, preoperative screening allows the detection of epiretinal membranes, vitreomacular traction syndrome, diabetic macular edema and rarer macular abnormalities such as macular schisis, resulting in proper preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative therapy and timely patient counseling. Postoperative macular thickness is a very useful tool in the diagnosis of postsurgical cystoid macular edema and is also helpful in monitoring the response to therapy. TD-OCT imaging and SD-OCT imaging of the optic nerve head are becoming a critical component in the early diagnosis of glaucoma and in monitoring the patient for early signs of progression.

Ophthalmology has always been heavily dependent on technology to enhance the diagnostic and treatment acumen of the clinician, and despite the cost of OCT acquisition in the face of increasing economic pressure; it is difficult to imagine a busy ophthalmic practice without OCT or SD-OCT in 5 years.

The US Is The Largest Market For Ophthalmic Diagnostic Equipment

The US represents the largest market globally for ophthalmic diagnostic equipment in terms of revenue generated. The US ophthalmic diagnostic equipment market was valued at $190.7m in 2010 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4{0730eed075b45d9e50c00d6cd42dd08773e0164f29a45151808bf89051290974} over 2010-2017. Easy accessibility and availability of new medical equipment to patients, the availability of reimbursement for the coverage of eye care screening as well as the increasing incidence of eye conditions and related disorders are the major factors driving growth in the market.

OCT is the largest segment, accounting for $49.5m in 2010. OCT will remain the fastest growing segment that some experts predict will exhibit a growth rate as high as 8{0730eed075b45d9e50c00d6cd42dd08773e0164f29a45151808bf89051290974} over the next seven years. New innovations in fundus cameras are also expected to drive sales in the US market as well.

Global Ophthalmic Diagnostic Equipment Market Forecast To Grow

The global ophthalmic diagnostic equipment market was estimated at $715.4 million in 2010 and is forecast to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4{0730eed075b45d9e50c00d6cd42dd08773e0164f29a45151808bf89051290974} to reach $947 million by 2017. The ophthalmic diagnostic equipment market includes perimeters, automatic and manual refractors, slit lamps, contact and non-contact tonometers, fundus cameras, automatic and manual lens meters, direct and indirect ophthalmoscopes, ultrasound equipment, corneal topography systems and other imaging systems. Technological innovations are stimulating growth in this otherwise saturated market dominated by traditional products. Recent advances in Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) systems have contributed to the renewed market growth.

The market for ophthalmic diagnostic equipment is growing due to a significant increase in the incidence and prevalence of eye related disorders among the elderly population and the availability of reimbursement for eye care screening in the majority of developed economies. With the introduction of ophthalmic diagnostic equipment with advanced technologies there is an increased interest in the prevention of blindness caused by Diabetic Retinopathy (DR), glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Thus, people are increasingly opting for diagnostic measures to correct eye related disorders.

Old age is associated with certain problems, especially the degeneration of visual abilities. By 2025, people aged 60 and above will constitute 35{0730eed075b45d9e50c00d6cd42dd08773e0164f29a45151808bf89051290974} of the total global population. Thus, with an increase in the elderly population, demand for products related to eye disorders will increase. Moreover, developing regions in Asia and South and Central America will provide growth opportunities as these markets are unsaturated. More than half of the global population resides in Asia, with India and China accounting for over 50{0730eed075b45d9e50c00d6cd42dd08773e0164f29a45151808bf89051290974} of the regional population. This offers significant market opportunities for manufacturers of ophthalmic diagnostic equipment.
