Sweeping changes

Device Technologies introduced Topcon’s new generation of OCTs to Australia last year with the launch of the Swept Source DRI OCT Triton, the only commercially-available posterior ‘Swept Source’ OCT unit with combined anterior scan capability.

Swept Source scanning offers improved visualisations of retinal pathology. Capturing 100,000 A-scans per second and at 1050 nm wavelength ensures deeper signal penetration through the retinal pigment epithelium. The Triton also has full choroidal thickness mapping and choroidal imagery to a digital resolution of one micron. A normative database is included.

Wide-field scanning (12 mm x 9 mm) on the DRI OCT Triton caters for both macular and glaucoma specialists, allowing fully-automated mapping and illustration of both the macula and optic disc in one single scan and potentially halving the number of scans the patient requires.

Additional features include OCT angiography, a true-colour fundus camera and the ability to produce multimodal imagery in the form of FA, FAF and digital red free.
