Bringing Advanced Imaging Into Focus
TAKING PEDIATRIC OCULAR IMAGING TO NEW PLACES
The unsurpassed power and precision of the RetCam3 Ophthalmic Imaging System has advanced the science and practice of neonatal and pediatric imaging worldwide. From the devastation of ROP in newborns and infants, to the full range of vision-related disorders, RetCam3 is bringing advanced imaging into focus.
Objective, high-resolution digital visualization and documentation, for definitive interpretation
RetCam delivers a full 130-degree view, while Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscopy (BIO) provides a 30-degree view
Enables image comparison over time, for managing disease progression
RetCam Review Software (RCRS) facilitates remote consultations, second opinions, family communications, treatment compliance, and teaching
BUILT-IN FLEXIBILITY, FOR ADAPTING TO YOUR NEEDS.
Your Work Never Stops Moving. Neither Should Your Tools.
From the NICU to the OR, and the newborn nursery to the clinic, the portable, integrated, wide- field RetCam digital imaging system delivers built-in flexibility, for adapting to your needs.
Five interchangeable lenses, for adapting quickly to changing needs
Fluorescein Angiography (FA) capabilities expose hard-to-see structures
Tele-Medicine and networking capabilities, with RetCam Review Software (RCRS)
Can also be used in stand-alone mode
THERE IS A BETTER WAY TO LOOK AT PEDIATRIC RETINAL DISEASES.
The BIO Technique vs RetCam3 Digital Imaging
For years, BIO was the primary method for diagnosing and monitoring ROP. However, clinical studies have repeatedly demonstrated that the subjectivity and inaccuracies of hand-drawn BIO sketches create significant variability in ROP diagnoses and documentation1-5.
The Proven Variability Of Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscopy (BIO)
A Comparative Study of Newborn Eye Examinations
|Newborn Eye Exams without RetCam3||20 of 202 subjects (10%) showed abnormal findings|
|Newborn Eye Exams with RetCam3 Images||70 of the same 202 subjects (35%) showed abnormal findings|
|Difference||50 of 202 patients (25%) with abnormal findings were missed when RetCam3 images were not use|
The Proven Accuracy of RetCam Imaging
Studies have proven that RetCam's objective, high-resolution imagery, uniform data, and many options provide definitive, superior diagnosis and management of ROP, compared to outdated BIO methods1-5. No wonder RetCam3 has become a new gold standard of care for ROP1.
RetCam Sensitivity and Specificity
|SUNDROP Program||100% sensitivity and 99.8% specificity|
|Chiang3||100% sensitivity and 85-94% specificity (35-37 wks., type 2 ROP+)|
|Ells4||100% sensitivity and 96% specificity|
|Wu5||100% sensitivity and 97% specificity|
A NEW SPECTRUM OF INSIGHT, REVEALING ROP ANOMALIES.
Fluorescein Angiography (FA)
The extreme contrast abilities of FA provide sharp visualization of vascular anomalies which might otherwise go unseen. Its results are important for confident ROP procedures, and serve as a valuable surgical planning tool.
FA vs Color Imaging
The border of the vascular area is clear in the FA, while in the color photograph, it is hidden within the treated area.
The blue arrows point out areas where FA provides visualization of the vessels of an ROP patient that are not obvious in the color photograph.
THE RIGHT VIEW. RIGHT WHERE YOU NEED IT.
RetCam3 Lens Options
With five interchangeable lenses, RetCam3 makes it quick and easy to get the best view of anatomical features, and adjust to the particular needs of individual cases.
