Canon to showcase its latest medical innovations at EURETINA and ESCRS 2016

LONDON, 30 August 2016 – Canon Europe, leader in imaging solutions, will be exhibiting its full range of ophthalmic diagnostic equipment at the 16th annual EURETINA Congress and XXXIV Congress of the ESCRS in Copenhagen, Denmark (9-13 September 2016).

During the combined congress, Canon will be offering attendees a preview of the latest update to its AX OCT Angiography software, which is designed for use with the OCT-HS100. The updated software will offer enhanced image quality for both tomography and angiography, as well as broadened functionality. The software also provides a more efficient way for practitioners to access further diagnostic information which leads to better informed diagnoses. In addition to this, visitors will be able to see how easily the OCT-HS100 and Canon’s retinal cameras can interact, providing the operator with a more informed and in-depth clinical diagnosis.

Peter Blonk, Head of Medical Imaging Group, Canon Europe, comments: “We are delighted to showcase our extensive range of ophthalmic diagnostic equipment at the show and strongly believe that our technology plays a fundamental role in helping healthcare organisations improve quality of care and become more patient-centric. We look forward to welcoming visitors onto the Canon stand to discuss how our products can help enhance the incredible work they are doing.”

On stand, Canon will also be demonstrating its RX ophthalmic software platform and its full connectivity possibilities. The platform can enhance practice workflows, with benefits including reduced data errors and increased time efficiencies. Visitors can also see the patent pending Canon Opacity Suppression, an innovative image processing solution, which allows eye care professionals to view images that were previously unusable but can now provide essential clinical information for diagnosis.

Pre-registered visitors will also have the opportunity to take part in seminars being given by a range of expert speakers on the Canon stand, including Dr Sal Rassam, Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Panacea Medical Centre in the UK and Jens Andresen, Ophthalmologist, M.D., Ph.D. Skanderborg Eye Clinic, Denmark, who will both share their clinical experiences. Experts from Canon will also be on hand to provide in-depth insight on the possibilities of OCT angiography.
