Portable imaging system captures quality images
Portable imaging system captures quality images
New technology has been paired with the time-tested technique of direct ophthalmoscopy to create a portable, retinal imaging system (D-Eye, D-Eye S.r.l.) that utilizes a small optical device magnetically attached to a smartphone
Strategies guide efficiency in modern medical practice
Improving practice efficiency is more likely to be successful when undertaken with a long-term view as well as an understanding of trends in the healthcare environment.
Enhanced technology measures both anterior eye segment, axial length
By adding optical biometry to the anterior segment tomography features of the Pentacam HR, a new unit has the capabilities of two devices in one.
