For those who checked in online, RANZCO NZ 2021 virtual exhibitor Optos was displaying its most powerful retinal imaging technology to date, the Silverstone. The only ultra-widefield retinal imaging device with integrated, UWF-guided swept-source OCT, Silverstone produces a 200° single-capture optomap image in less than 0.5 seconds and enables guided OCT scanning across the retina and into the far periphery, said Jason Martone, Optos’ managing director ANZ. “Optomap has been shown to enhance pathology detection and disease management and improve clinic flow. Now with integrated swept-source OCT, Silverstone facilitates examination of the retina from vitreous through the choroidal-scleral interface.”
Silverstone offers a range of imaging options including colour, red-free, choroidal, autofluorescence, fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography and OCT, with a 200⁰ image view in a single capture or up to 220⁰ with auto-montage, plus detailed macula views or, with stereo, image pairing for optic disc and retinal evaluation. “Silverstone is our most advanced product and has only recently been offered to the market. Despite the cancellations of many national congresses across Australia and New Zealand as a result of Covid-19, we hope to officially launch Silverstone towards the end of this year,” said Martone adding that despite this lack of an official launch, interest in the new top-of-the-range product is very high.
