Optovue Avanti Widefield OCT from Optovue offers you new information on structures outside the conventional 6×6 mm block, separates the retina into distinct layers for detailed appraisal, offers views of the vitreous and deep choroid, and gives you the capability to monitor change over time. And scan patients faster with 70,000 A-scans each second, fast procedure scans with Avanti’s desktop processing engine, and quickly identify potential problems with comprehensive, easy-to-read reports.
Optovue Avanti supplies an all-in-one alternative for posterior and lateral high heeled OCT imaging at 70,000 A-scans each second, using widefield 3D motion correction and 3-micron electronic resolution. Along with fast and accurate imaging, Avanti offers a simultaneous multi-layered evaluation of peripheral cornea pathology; deep choroidal imaging; fovea location recognition; pachymetry mapping; and optic disc, RNFL and ganglion cell complicated evaluation. Optovue states the device was created as a scalable platform for next-generation OCT in mind.
The Opotvue Avanti is a spectral-domain, high-resolution OCT which has been utilized in numerous clinical trials. We use it to perform the following tests:
- Nerve Fiber Layer and Ganglion Cell scans to screen for glaucoma and follow patients over time
- Retinal macular scans to diagnose and support numerous medical eye problems including macular degeneration, diabetic macular edema, epiretinal membrane, vitreomacular traction, cystoid macular edema, etc
- Anterior Segment scans to diagnose corneal or iris pathology
- OCT Angiography which is starting to be used more than traditional fluorescein angiography to image the blood vessels of the retina and optic nerve. It is particularly helpful imaging patients with diabetes, macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion, and glaucoma
- Measurement of Total Corneal Power (TCP) for calculation of Intraocular Lens (IOL) power after LASIK, PRK or RK which has been shown in studies to be the most accurate technology available
- Evaluation of the anterior chamber angle to determine the risk of acute angle closure glaucoma
- Corneal thickness mapping to judge central corneal thickness and screen for keratoconus
- Imaging of intraocular tumors such as a choroidal nevus or choroidal melanoma
Optovue Avanti Advantage
The Avanti Widefield Enface OCT system is the next generation in OCT technology with a fully comprehensive system for managing retina, glaucoma, and anterior segment. Avanti offers Widefield scanning, a 12mm x 9 mm scan with 40° imaging, high speed – 70,000 A-scans/seconds and an easy user interface. The Avanti also incorporates Total Corneal Power (TCP) for post-refractive cataract patients and Epithelial Thickness Mapping (ETM) for better LASIK planning.
Optovue Avanti Widefield OCT incorporates RNFL and Ganglion Cell Complex (GCC) measurements with the added parameters of Focal Loss Volume (FLV%) and Global Loss Volume (GLV%) that increase the sensitivity and specificity of the GCC analysis.1 The RNFL and GCC trend analysis report provides a tool for approximating the rate of change that enables personalized treatment protocols and improved patient education.
The Avanti gives Retina Specialists new information on structures outside the traditional 6mm x 6mm cube, providing an assessment of individual layers of the retina, offering views of the vitreous and deep choroid, and enabling evaluation of change over time. Optovue Avanti Widefield OCT incorporates some technologies that deliver clinical and practical benefits.
For the Anterior Segment, the Avanti expands the clinical utility of your OCT to address a broad range of patients in practice. This comprehensive package includes exciting new technology as well as the standard features you’ve come to expect from anterior segment OCT. Avanti Widefield OCT offers a new way to calculate IOL powers and to assess the thickness of the epithelium, while also providing essential functions such as cornea cross-line scans, angle measurement, and pachymetry.
