Product: OCTaVIA v2.0
Top Line: New England College of Optometry (NECO) has released a new version of OCTaVIA v2.0, a popular smartphone app for optometry and ophthalmology.
Close Up: Now available for Android devices, in addition to the previously available iOS version. OCTaVIA (Optical Coherence Tomography VIsual Atlas) is a collection of OCT images and reference information for multiple ocular diseases and retinal conditions.
The new and upgraded app includes expanded entries and easier search. The app was developed by Dr. Elena Z. Biffi and updated with expanded content and images. For a small fee, users get access to the full content with over 100 different ocular diseases and automatic monthly content and reference links updates. The original app was launched in 2018 for iOS users and has been downloaded close to 10,000 times across the U.S., Canada, Australia, South America and Europe, according to NECO.
Vital Stats: OCTaVIA, a first-of-its kind reference app, meets a need among optometry/ophthalmology students and practitioners to quickly and easily find OCT reference images to aid in patient diagnosis and care. These images can often reveal retinal disease conditions before the patients become symptomatic.
The OCTaVIA app provides normal OCT reference material and corresponding OCT images with Fundus Photography images for multiple retinal disease conditions. It also includes brief disease-specific descriptions of OCT images, high-yield key considerations, and useful links to other resources to aid in the differential diagnosis. The app’s intuitive search function provides access to a myriad of retinal diseases.
