Ellex Unveils New Diagnostic Ultrasound System at AAO
November 5, 2009
Ellex Medical Lasers Ltd. presented the newest version of the ultrasound system, Eye Cubed, at the American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting in San Francisco last week.
According to the company, the new generation of the device includes an intuitive software interface which coordinates with Windows-based operation, expanded measurement options via uniquely shaped calipers, and improved export and import functions. There are customized A-Scan and B-Scan modes which make the system appropriate for both retinal subspecialists and anterior segment surgeons. The device also includes an A-scan feature for cataract surgeons that eliminates corneal compression and transmits ultrasound waves through dense cataracts.
A wide-field anterior segment B-Scan gives clinicians a view of the lens apparatus, including the zonules and ciliary muscles which are nearly impossible to visualize with other ultrasound systems. The system also includes a 24-inch wide-screen monitor and ultra-high resolution. Images are stored on a 1-terabyte, built-in hard drive that includes a DVD burner.
