True Image-Guided OCT

True Image-Guided OCT:

Unique, essential—the power of precision delivered

"Only Phoenix provides 'true' image guided OCT scan location, and this is essential to success of longitudinal studies"

The Phoenix image-guided OCT displays the OCT scan line on the retinal image simultaneous with the OCT scan. The information from both modalities can be used in real-time to relocate the scan line depending on observations. And, fluorescent information, not visible from the OCT scan can also be used to locate points of research interest.

Compare with traditional "scan and search" techniques

In addition to it's multi-staged process, the 'scan and search' technique cannot provide OCT scan averaging or locate the scan based on features such as GFP or angiography.

    • Bright field image used to locate retina and the 'scan box'
    • A 3D OCT scan is obtained of a large area.
    • The 2D en face OCT information can be searched to estimate the location of key features
    • The last step is to locate and save the 2D scan information

The Phoenix System is not an ad hoc adaptation of clinical instruments. Our Micron IV is optimized for the rodent eye and leads to extraordinary performance and high quality images that enables a new era of in vivo observations.


  • interactive segmentation

    InSight employs its robust algorithm to create segmentation of the retinal layers automatically, or with full user interaction and control. Data from your scans can be displayed in 3 structural analysis modes: traditional tomography display with lines delineating the layers, Phoenix’s unique color banded/coded display, or numeric data.
