ZEISS expands its CIRRUS® Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) portfolio with the launch of its new CIRRUS® 6000, the next generation, ultra-fast 100kHz system that promises to dramatically elevate the efficiency of busy, advanced care practices. At 100,000 A-Scans per second, image acquisition is extremely fast. The CIRRUS 6000 OCT scans are 270 percent faster than prior CIRRUS generations, 43 percent faster than the CIRRUS 5000 AngioPlex and OCT cube scans can be acquired in as little as 0.4 seconds. Faster acquisition also means more image detail, with improved image quality due to fewer motion artifacts.
According to glaucoma specialist Dr. I. Paul Singh, MD, of The Eye Centers of Racine & Kenosha, with the CIRRUS 6000 his staff can scan patients much faster with improved imaging quality. “The speed and quality of the scan allows me to diagnose the patient in less time, maximize flow of the clinic, and provide patients with an optimized and tailored treatment plan,” said Singh.
Another major benefit of the CIRRUS 6000 is that it allows seamless transfer of raw patient data from previous generations of the CIRRUS. This ensures that the ability to analyze old, new, and future patient data is preserved.
“Our comprehensive OCT system provides doctors a high-performing OCT, with proven analytics and a patient-first design to maximize clinical efficiency and patient care,” said Dr. Ludwin Monz, President and CEO of Carl Zeiss Meditec. “The CIRRUS 6000 addresses the challenges of eye care professionals enabling them to maximize time, while maintaining a high standard of care.”
Combined with the new version of the ZEISS Glaucoma Workplace, a powerful software solution for glaucoma management. The ZEISS Glaucoma Workplace integrates diagnostics data from various devices to help doctors streamline complex analysis. The new version of the ZEISS Glaucoma Workplace features a new Progression Summary report with “exception-based” alerts that automatically displays statistically significant change in critical measurements such as Visual Field, RNFL, GCL, C/D Ratio and IOP change. The ZEISS Glaucoma Workplace helps deliver a new level of efficiency for glaucoma data analysis.
