Zeiss Medical Technology has launched its new Cirrus 6000, 100kHz ultra-fast optical coherence tomography (OCT) system – the latest addition to its portfolio of OCT devices. The Cirrus 6000 offers high-speed and high-throughput to help eye care professionals manage large patient volumes faster, while improving imaging and image quality.
“This system was designed with the patient in mind, enabling doctors to continue accessing their patient data from Cirrus devices that are crucial to effective long-term patient care,” said Jim Mazzo, Global President of Ophthalmic Devices at Carl Zeiss Meditec. “We are committed to our customers and believe this will become an essential asset to their practice.”
With the new scan acquisition time of 100,000 per second I can scan and assess my patients much quicker, giving me the details I need with every image
The 100kHz speed of the CIRRUS 6000 allows clinicians to scan patients faster, with increased efficiency and improved imaging detail. Additional features include:
• Wider and deeper OCT/OCT-Angiography (OCTA) scans with 12x12mm OCTA and B-scan depth up to 2.9mm,
• A new HD AngioPlex scan that provides more detail,
• New workflow protocols to aid in increasing efficiency, and
• A patient-friendly ‘Wellness report’ to help educate the patient.
Retina and vitreoretinal physician and surgeon Dr Gregg T. Kokame, of Retina Consultants of Hawaii, described the new Zeiss Cirrus 6000 as being extremely fast and impressive.
“With the new scan acquisition time of 100,000 per second I can scan and assess my patients much quicker, giving me the details I need with every image,” he said.
Zeiss showcased the Cirrus 6000 at EURETINA, along with devices including the Clarus 700, Slit Lamp 800, PLEX Elite and the ARTEVO 800.
