Slit-lamp biomicroscopy is a fundamental diagnostic tool essential to daily practice. While examining patients’ eyes helps you make clinical decisions in the moment, digitally documenting your findings can help with tracking progression and informing long-term treatment and management. One new slit lamp camera attachment from Haag-Streit designed for this purpose—the Imaging Module 910 for the BQ 900 slit lamp—can capture sharp clinical images during an exam with the click of a button, according to developers.
The module can be used in two different ways: “stand alone” mode, which allows images to be stored directly in the EMR system, or “EyeSuite” mode, which enables features such as image editing through custom software the company provides. For the best image quality and illumination possible, the device includes smart features such as auto-exposure mode and automatic aperture control, a press release from Haag-Streit explains. The company adds that an image selection algorithm filters through and chooses the best images.
The attachment is ready to go with the turn of a knob and doesn’t require the use of a software, according to the company.
