MARLBOROUGH, Mass.—Optos is launching Monaco, the first ultra-wide field (UWF) imaging device combined with OCT, in the U.S. Monaco produces a 200-degree, single-capture optomap image in less than a half-second and provides cross-sectional, 40-degree OCT views of retinal structures. Monaco enables a rapid multi-modality capture featuring color, autofluorescence and OCT scans, for both eyes, in as little as two minutes.
The compact desktop UWF retinal imaging device provides greater imaging functionality and expands the company’s product portfolio for the ophthalmic market. Monaco represents the company’s first combined imaging device with ultra-wide field color imaging, three-in-one color depth imaging and autofluorescence (AF) modalities combined with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). A comprehensive exam including ultra-wide field imaging and OCT, which delivers information on structure and function of the retina, has been shown to enhance pathology detection and disease management and to significantly improve clinic flow.
The UWF with integrated OCT saves time, space and minimizes patient movement; the central pole OCT provides comprehensive multi-modal imaging. Optomap images and OCT scans are correlated to facilitate pathology examination, and color, AF, and OCT images are shown in a single, comprehensive view.
