High Magnification Module
Enhanced resolution of retinal microstructures
The SPECTRALIS® High Magnification Module consists of a highly innovative magnifying lens and software.
It elegantly demonstrates the capability of confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (cSLO) to resolve ocular microstructures by reducing intraocular light scattering. These ocular microstructures can even be visualized in eyes with cataracts.
The image contrast and clarity obtained by combining laser light selectivity with confocal scanning are often not available from fundus photography, highlighting critical diagnostic details not visible on ophthalmoscopy.
After a region of interest has been identified using a larger field of view, the user can acquire ~8° magnified images at an enhanced resolution to investigate the area at an even higher level of detail. This possibility may provide unique insight into the progression of certain retinal diseases.
