Truly Portable Imager Produces Still and Video Images of the Eye
Volk’s lightweight Pictor digital imager delivers internal retinal and external corneal views
Mentor, Ohio (June 16, 2011) – For convenient ocular imaging in any setting, Volk Optical’s new truly portable Pictor digital device enables ophthalmic imaging not possible with traditional fixed systems. The Pictor delivers high resolution images of the retinal and external eye structures in office, on non-ambulatory patient visits, at off-site clinics and for pediatric patient exams difficult to conduct on a fixed system.
The extremely compact Pictor weighs in at just one pound, and fits easily with its accessories into a small briefcase. Its high quality jpeg images, easily uploaded to computer, are compatible with most major imaging software programs and adaptable to any patient database system. The files can be used for patient records, or shared for remote diagnosis and consultation.
Ideal for retinal and external imaging and associated interpretation, Pictor’s low system price results in a short payback period. Two modules are included with the Pictor. The Retinal module provides a 45 degree field of view of the fundus. It is a non-mydriatic imaging method for use with pupils as small as 3mm. The Anterior module is used for imaging surface parts of the eye and has a series of cobalt blue LEDs for fluorescent imaging.
