Discover a new dimension
Another first to market - HAAG-STREIT SURGICAL launched the World's first intraoperative OCT system - the iOCT - in 2012. Boasting some outstanding features, it integrates perfectly into the surgical workflow.
Please tell me more about iOCT
Enhance your possibilities
The iOCT camera is integrated into the high class operating microscope HS Hi-R NEO 900A NIR and its carrying system. iOCT scans of the eye’s anterior and posterior segments are performed live during surgery, thus improving quality control mechanisms for the surgeon. Discover more details than with a standard surgical microscope and enhance your possibilities.
Experiences with intraoperative OCT
HAAG-STREIT SURGICAL has proudly developed an Internet application, which summarises the many features of iOCT. View videos, 3D scans, and picture-in-picture superimpositions from the iOCT-Atlas. You can register free of charge and participate in HAAG-STREIT SURGICAL‘s new world of iOCT.
Great orientation & detail
Intraoperative OCT can be used for all surgeries performed in the eye’s anterior segment. While in cataract surgery it is used to help position the IOL, it also comprehensively covers all aspects of corneal surgery.
Great membrane resolution
For posterior segment surgery and observation of the retina, intraoperative OCT can be used with HAAG-STREIT SURGICAL’s ophthalmoscopic system EIBOS 2 NIR or a contact lens.
Perfect visualisation is supported by the binocular image injection superimposing the scan to the live view into both oculars. The amazing window depth of 4.2 mm provides an overview of the whole anterior segment: from the cornea to the lens.
Enrich your vision
Featuring high definition, data can be injected in exceptional resolution into the oculars as an overlay to the live view or as a full image. The binocular image injection guarantees distraction-free work in full compliance with your natural, visual perception. Moreover, it prevents drawing your attention away from the surgical field.
Ready for iOCT
In order for iOCT observation during surgery to be possible, the microscope needs special optics that are optimised for near infrared (NIR) light. These optics are integrated into the HS Hi-R NEO 900A NIR as well as into the EIBOS 2 NIR. For added flexibility the iOCT-ready microscope system is also offered separately from the actual iOCT, making it possible to upgrade later on.
For easy handling the intraoperative OCT was designed to focus on the same focal plane as the microscope. In addition, the microscope’s zoom can be used to magnify the iOCT’s image. Further handling is smoothly integrated into the operating microscope, via M.DIS or foot switch.
Microscope mounted display & control
The M.DIS (Microscope Display) operates as the iOCT’s control center. The high-resolution screen, mounted close to the eyepiece, provides the iOCT images which may be seen by momentarily looking up from the eyepiece. The touch screen allows full control of the iOCT including its user settings.
For faster, easier & safer operation
iOCT, together with the operating microscope HS Hi-R NEO 900A NIR, features ergonomic integration of iOCT control into your foot-switch-centered workflow, greatly improving speed and ease of operation. To meet the user experience of established HAAG-STREIT SURGICAL microscopes, the actual assignment of iOCT functionality to foot switch controls is highly customisable through user profiles.
Individual workflow optimisation
The concept of “per-user customisation” is carried far beyond simple footswitch-control mappings. Comprehensive sets of iOCT configurations can seamlessly be saved. These include foot switch operation but also control of special settings related to the eye’s segment observed with iOCT.
Documentation made easy
In addition to normal HD camera recording iOCT videos, snapshots and 3D volume scans need to be made for documentation purposes. This process is fastened by HS MIOS 5 and the recording option M.REC 2 allowing synchronising these two parallel video signals.
Connect your recordings
By activating the M.REC 2, the live stream's two camera inputs are shown simultaneously on the HS MIOS 5: one as a full screen image, the other displayed as a picture-in-picture. Starting recording or doing a snapshot will automatically activate the function for both streams. This will result in two separate full HD videos being recorded, or two separate high quality snapshots being taken.
In addition to your standard recordings, volume scans can be performed with the iOCT system. This offers the unique option of creating a 3D image including the iOCT‘s depth information during surgery. It is created out of 30 scans over a specified area.
Comprehensive yet intuitive recording
The prime functions of HS MIOS 5 are the recording of operation scenes as well as the capturing and recording of snapshots, together with proper identification of patient and hospital data. Images and video streams can be stored on DVD-R/-RW, HDD, USB flash drive, and external USB hard disk drive or transmitted to the hospital PACS via DICOM.
Compact HD camera
C.MOR HD is a full HD colour video camera designed for the HAAG-STREIT SURGICAL microscope. Its ultra-compact camera head houses a 1/3” CMOS sensor that meets very high standards. In its 1 and 3-chip version, images are crisp and sharp. Different user settings allow individual adjustments.
The road to success
The first intraoperative OCT system was demonstrated in 2010. Today the iOCT is an established product. When used for teaching, the iOCT images help trainees learn faster as another dimension is added to their vision.
