Canon U.S.A. to Showcase Eyecare Technology at Vision Expo West
MELVILLE, N.Y., September 7, 2017 – Joining eye care professionals from across the globe as they share the latest industry trends and advancements, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has announced that it will once again be on-site for Vision Expo West, held from Thursday, September 14 through Saturday, September 16 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Event attendees are encouraged to visit Canon U.S.A. at booth #MS10059 where the company will showcase its eyecare devices and teleretinal solution.
Within the Canon booth will be the CR-2 PLUS AF Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal camera and imageSPECTRUM Image Management System software1, an intuitive software solution offering image management and portability to help improve workflow (sold separately). Healthcare professionals using either the Windows® 7 with SQL 2012 or Windows 10 with SQL 2016 operating system are able to perform retinal screenings and then quickly transmit the images to doctors' offices, both domestic and overseas2, to assist in making a diagnosis by using the CR-2 PLUS AF retinal camera with imageSPECTRUM software.
Utilizing advanced Canon EOS optics and CMOS image-capture technology, the CR-2 PLUS AF camera features a customized 20.2 megapixel digital camera. With the press of a button, users can switch between auto and manual focusing for ultimate control and ease-of-use. The Auto Capture function determines the appropriate moment to capture an image by analyzing when exposure and alignment are ideal. The CR-2 PLUS AF camera includes a non-invasive Fundus Autofluorescence imaging mode that provides the reviewer with the ability to quickly assess the condition of the RPE layer.
In addition to the CR-2 PLUS AF camera’s ability to capture high-resolution color retinal images, the imageSPECTRUM software, which is sold separately, includes a set of digital RGB filters to assist with the viewing of suspect pathologies and an opacity suppression tool to help provide clear images of the eye.
The following Canon eye care devices will also be on display at Vision Expo West:
- CR-2 AF Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera: The CR-2 AF incorporates Canon EOS technology and provides superb retinal images under just about any condition. With integrated AutoExposure, AutoFocus, AutoFundus, AutoCapture and Image Error Detection, Low-Flash and Quick Preview modes, this retinal camera is easy to operate. Enhanced from the previous CR-2 Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera, the CR-2 AF features Canon contrast enhancement technology never before offered in a Canon retinal camera to emphasize the differences in “redness” and “brightness” of blood vessel structures relative to their surroundings.
- RK-F2 Full Auto Ref-Keratometer: Including a Full Auto Mode which allows professionals to automatically align, focus, and acquire a reading for one eye and continue to the opposite eye to perform the same function – all with one touch of a button. This feature contributes to a comfortable, efficient screening process for the patient.
- TX-20 Full Auto Tonometer: Designed to be compact and lightweight, the non-contact tonometer is easy to transport and install. With soft air puffs, the TX-20 tonometer easily measures Intraocular Pressure (IOP), enhancing patient comfort and allowing doctors to perform simple eye exams efficiently. The TX-20 Tonometer, as the RK-F2 Keratometer, also offers one-touch Full Auto Mode to automatically align, focus, and capture readings.
