CIRRUS photo

One system for fundus imaging and OCT

Broader clinical insights, greater diagnostic certainty and added practice value –  CIRRUS™ photo from ZEISS delivers all that in a single, integrated system for both fundus imaging and OCT.
CIRRUS photo combines a full mydriatic/non-mydriatic fundus camera with proven CIRRUS HD-OCT technology in one compact and highly versatile system. Available in two models, CIRRUS photo 600 and CIRRUS photo 800, it provides multiple insights for comprehensive retina and posterior segment care.
Visualize findings from various modalities. Correlate data from high-density OCT cubes, thickness and layer maps with results from superb color fundus images as well as fundus autofluorescence and fluorescein angiography* images. All in one convenient sitting.

Achieve a more comprehensive clinical evaluation. Save time and space.
Enhance the examination experience for your patients and staff.

Have it all in a single system for fundus imaging and OCT.

    Broader Clinical Insights

    By simultaneously providing high-quality fundus images and OCT scans, CIRRUS photo facilitates broader, more comprehensive diagnostic insights. Each modality by itself is a premier quality diagnostic instrument. Together, they enable you to characterize and examine the patient’s condition more completely and easily.

    Interactive review

    The system’s one-of-a-kind MultiMode Navigator enables interactive analysis of registered fundus images and OCT cube scans – horizontal and vertical direction.

    Precise registration

    OCT scans are automatically registered with different types of fundus images including color fundus, angiography* and fundus autofluorescence* images, bringing depth to your analysis.

    Multimodal assessments

    CIRRUS photo allows you to conduct examinations with various modalities and to correlate the findings at one single workstation. Every fundus image can also be registered independently of the acquisition sequence, along with other flexible combinations.

    Greater diagnostic certainty

    Comprehensive, high-quality diagnostics form the basis for informed decisions. With its superb multimodality visualizations, CIRRUS photo delivers exceptional insights, supporting greater diagnostic accuracy and certainty.

    Extraordinary image quality

    CIRRUS photo features standard-setting CIRRUS HD-OCT technology and a full-featured mydriatic/nonmydriatic fundus camera. The result – visualizations of a quality that is truly extraordinary.

    Algorithm excellence

    ZEISS and its research collaborators have developed advanced algorithms to measure and display retinal layers.

    Accurate centering

    FoveaFinder™ and AutoCenter™ automatically ensure that measurements are made in the proper locations, taking the pressure off the operator to perfectly center the scans.

    Comparison capabilities

    CIRRUS data cubes are automatically registered with data from prior visits, allowing for more detailed comparisons.

    Normative databases

    Diversified normative databases for ONH, RNFL and macular thickness facilitate concise at-a-glance assessments.

    Specific fundus details

    Enabling efficient cross-modality analysis, CIRRUS photo allows easy switching between fundus images registered with OCT scans and maps.

    Added practice value

    As a highly efficient and versatile instrument, CIRRUS photo offers substantial value. In addition to streamlining your workflow and
    supporting more comprehensive assessments, it saves time and space.
    By eliminating the need to move patients to another instrument, it also enhances the examination experience – for patients and practice staff alike.

    More clinical efficiency

    With CIRRUS photo, you can add a color fundus image to an OCT examination for additional assessment – in seconds and without additional dilation.

    More practice efficiency

    The ability to capture all necessary fundus images and HD-OCT scans in a single patient setup saves you time and space. As such, CIRRUS photo is ideally suited for comprehensive practices working with or without angiography.

    More time for patients

    Easy, convenient and operator-independent storage of CIRRUS photo data is provided by FORUM®. Via the FORUM Archive & Viewer, you can effortlessly exchange examination results with EMR systems and other diagnostic instruments – even with other practice sites.

    More flexibility

    Featuring a modular design, CIRRUS photo lets you individually choose the diagnostic modalities and clinical insights best suited for your practice needs – whether OCT, color and red-free fundus imaging, fundus autofluorescence, fluorescein angiography, ICG angiography, and anterior segment.
