We strongly believe that adding the PASCAL Photocoagulator to our portfolio of outstanding products, which includes 3D OCT-1000 and IMAGEnet, will allow us to meet the needs of advanced medical care in the Japanese ophthalmic community," said Hiroshi Fukuzawa, director, executive officer and general manager of the Eye Care Business Unit of Topcon Medical Japan.
used the National Instruments LabVIEW FPGA Module and NI intelligent data acquisition (DAQ) devices to create PASCAL, an innovative laser photocoagulator.
Using the NI LABVIEW FPGA Module and an NI R Series intelligent DAQ device, engineers at OptiMedica created the PASCAL photocoagulator, a fully integrated pattern scanning laser system that provides significantly improved performance for the physician administering treatment to patients with retinal disease, as well as an enhanced therapeutic experience for the patient.
It broadens the use of the Pascal Photocoagulator for all treatment modalities and situations.
The study demonstrated that the Pascal([R]) photocoagulator offers substantial advantages compared to conventional photocoagulation, including increased speed, precision and patient tolerance.
a leading developer of ophthalmic therapeutic devices, today announced it has received ISO 13485 certification and the Pascal Photocoagulator has received CE Mark approval.
These results clearly demonstrate the potential to make significant advances in the treatment of diabetic retinopathy and other retinal disorders with the PASCAL Photocoagulator," said Dr.
The sp-mode[TM] is the latest advancement in LightMed laser photocoagulators, offering an innovative approach to achieving positive clinical outcomes and eliminating laser-induced thermal tissue damage or treatment side effects.
Techniques of treatment have also evolved considerably over time; for example early photocoagulators produced intense burns with significant damage to the nerve fibre layer, with corresponding visual field defects (Figures 1a and b), but over time gentler laser application, including technologies such as micropulse diode to limit collateral tissue damage, have lessened treatment side effects.
