TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Topcon Healthcare, a leading provider of medical devices and software solutions for the global eye care community, is pleased to announce that it has launched the NW500, its new fully-automatic, non-mydriatic retinal camera that delivers reliable, sharp-quality imaging with enhanced capability.
The NW500 offers innovative slit scan illumination and a rolling shutter mechanism, which helps to overcome one of the known causes of poorly graded images in its ability to effectively image smaller pupils, from 2.00mm or more*. A 12-megapixel sensor delivers excellent quality colour fundus images for clear review and analysis.
The NW500 contributes to a streamlined workflow and enhanced patient experience by offering the ability to acquire retinal images in a lighted setting without the need to dilate patients. The NW500 offers excellent quality colour fundus images across the traditional 3 fixation points (Disc, Centre, and Macula), as well as the 9 fixation positions for peripheral photography.
Touch-screen operation offers rapid, simple capture with just one touch. Fully-automated operation gives clinicians the flexibility to delegate screening to non-clinical staff. The improved processing speed** means it takes less time to capture images and gives operators the ability to increase patient throughput.
A variety of connectivity options are available to suit the needs of clinical and screening businesses.
“The NW500 reflects Topcon’s commitment to continuous innovation in pursuit of technology that helps to improve the quality-of-care patients receive and make care more efficient and accessible,” says Senior Director of Product Management, Tobias Kurzke. “Combined, the innovative slit scan technology and 12-megapixel camera offer clinicians fast, sharp quality imaging with less failure and retakes, making the process of acquiring fundus images faster and more reliable than before. The added benefit of enhancing the patient experience through faster screening times and the absence of the need for dilation will give clinicians and large volume wellness screening settings a competitive advantage.”
