ArcScan Solutions Across the Eye

With its proprietary ultrasound technology, the ArcScan system delivers powerful imaging solutions for the anterior segment, as well as other areas that are currently inaccessible with other imaging technologies.

Cornea Solutions

The ability to image the entire anterior segment in minute detail provides for deeper insights into the true anatomical structure of the cornea before and after refractive surgery.

Studies have shown that having this data available may enable clinicians to increase their LASIK candidacy rates by giving them the ability further evaluate and qualify patients who would normally have been ruled out from LASIK surgery due to suspicious front and back surface topography1,2.

The epithelial thickness mapping that the ArcScan Insight™ 100 System covers the full 10mm diameter of the cornea making it a viable tool in analysing and diagnosing potential underlying pathologies.

The system’s integrated continuous scan mode allows clinicians to focus the scan easily on specific areas of interest to generate even more specific imaging. Furthermore, a deeper understanding of the various corneal layers may assist in the evaluation of potential keratoconus or other physical corneal aberrations.

Glaucoma Solutions

Using proprietary ultrasound imaging technology, the ArcScan Insight 100 System can image areas that are not accessible by optical imaging technologies. The system can visualize the areas behind the scleral wall such as the trabecular meshwork including Schlemm’s canal, the ciliary body and the choroidal space supporting the diagnosis of glaucoma and surgical planning.  Contact us for more details on how the ArcScan Insight 100 System can create additional value for your practice and aid in your surgical planning.

Anterior Segment Solutions

Using intelligent ultrasound visualization technology the ArcScan Insight 100 System can image the complete posterior chamber all the way to the posterior pole of the lens and also provide precise, real measurements of posterior chamber biometry. White-to-white measurements that are commonly used in intraocular surgery have shown little correlation to actual sulcus-to-sulcus measurements3. With the the ArcScan Insight 100 surgeons can rely on true anatomical data for their pre-operative surgical planning

Also, the ArcScan Insight System is not limited by pupillary boundaries compared to optical technology when it comes to measuring the position and volume of the crystalline lens. This enhances the ability to determine the effective lens position (ELP) thereby potentially improving predictability of outcomes.
