The ArcScan Insight 100 can image and measure anterior chamber depth, angle-to-angle width, individual corneal layers and sulcus-to-sulcus width, all with micron level precision.
“The ArcScan Insight 100 is going to revolutionize corneal as well as cataract refractive surgery,” John D. Sheppard, MD, stated in a company press release. “It offers unmatched biometric precision of all anterior segment anatomy without shadows, allowing me to see corneal structures at a resolution that other diagnostic technologies simply can’t equal. This is the next generation of anterior segment imaging and the evolution of ultrasound.”
The device is designed for refractive surgical planning and evaluation of anterior segment pathology, such as solid masses and cysts. But Ike K. Ahmed, MD, also sees applications in glaucoma surgery.
“We are seeing and will continue to see greater usage in glaucoma diagnostics with the ability to image where optical devices cannot—the ciliary body and suprachoroidal space—which will also help in surgical planning and postoperative assessment of new MIGS devices.”
