20th October 2016 10:30

NIDEK CO., LTD., a global leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of ophthalmic, optometric, and lens edging equipment, is pleased to announce the launch of AngioScan an upgraded OCT-Angiography software, that enables visualization of retinal and choroidal microvasculature and blood flow using the
RS-3000 Advance OCT.

OCT-Angiography is a non-invasive technique that eliminates the need for contrast dye injection to examine the layer-by-layer microvasculature within the retina and choroid. Radial peripapillary capillary plexus, superficial capillary plexus, internal capillary plexus and deep capillary plexus can be analyzed.

One of the newly added analysis functions to NAVIS-EX for OCT-Angiography is the CNV flow. This function allows for rapid, easy assessment of abnormal vessels in the outer retina. Another is the Projection Artifact Removal with which shadows from the inner retina are removed to reduce false recognition of outer retinal vasculature.


For AngioScan capture, acquisition time is faster making for better usability and image quality. Moreover, panoramas up to 12 x 9 mm can be automatically composed. Tracing HD Plus reduces overlaps and gaps between individual images.

This upgraded AngioScan OCT-Angiography Software for RS-3000 Advance will be exhibited at ESCRS2016 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Please visit our booth to experience it for yourself.
