Introducing the DRS
The DRS is a fully-automated retinal camera that requires minimal operator training. No pupil dilation is required for the patient, although there is a 3.8mm minimum pupil size. Its compact ergonomic design features an integrated PC with an intuitive touch screen.
The DRS supports single or multiple field acquisition, providing the seven standard fields of photography within a 45° view. It has colour and red-free imaging, as well as anterior imaging, a stereo-mode with 3D viewer and the option to switch into manual mode.
The DRS senses the patient, self-aligns to the target eye, focuses the retina, adjusts the flash level and captures the images in less than 30 seconds per eye. The DRS offers a 5 Megapixel sensor with a resolution of 48 pixels per degree.
Approved for use in the Diabetic Eye Screening Programme
The DRS has been approved for use by the diabetic screening programme, which is key in the prevention of diabetes-induced vision impairments that can lead to blindness. The NHS Diabetic Eye Screening (DES) programme is one of the young person and adult NHS population screening programmes. Evidence shows that early identification and treatment of diabetic eye disease could reduce sight loss.
Thanks to its fully-automated operation, DRS requires minimal operator training. Its compact, ergonomic design and low power flash help ensure the patient is comfortable during an examination. The DRS maximises patient flow and it is entirely operated through its intuitive touch-screen interface.
Multiple storage options
Images can be stored on the DRS system in a number of ways; on the internal hard drive, a USB memory stick, printed or transmitted to another PC or on a network via the integrated Wi-FI and Ethernet connection. The DRS also comes with a 160 GB hard drive, enabling storage of 50,000 images.
Low-power LED flash
Offering a low power LED flash for patient comfort, the DRS eliminates the need for routine flash tube changes, saving you time and money. Energy-saving LED flash lights have a longer life expectancy and consume less power compared with xenon tubes.
What is EKN?
The Eye Knowledge Network (EKN) is internet-based software that is integrated with the DRS fundus camera. It is used to transmit retinal images and textual information and make them available for online consultation by authorised users, via a regular internet browser. This allows for secure online image review and provides a fully-automated, 0-clicks data backup solution.
How EKN works...
Retinal images are captured with a DRS, encrypted and uploaded to the Eye Knowledge Network. A grader can assess the images from any location and complete a clinical report if needed. An administrator or viewer retrieves and prints the clinical reports from any location.
Image mosaic on EKN
A new automated image mosaic function is now available for DRS via the EKN solution. The mosaic function combines a set of images framing different fields of the retina to compose a single larger image. Any registered EKN user can review the original DRS images online, select multiple fields (min 2, max 7) and start the mosaic process. The mosaic image is then generated automatically by the server. The result is a high-resolution image of the retina with up to an 80° field of view.
1 years free subscription to EKN
HS-UK offers any customer who purchases a DRS a free EKN license for the first year. The DRS now boasts a new automated image mosaic function, which allows any EKN user to take up to 7 different fields and piece these together to get a clear view of the eye in one shot. The result is a high-resolution image of the retina, which can be reviewed online via the EKN platform.
