OD-OS announced the release of a preplanned panretinal photocoagulation capability for the Navilas 577s, which will allow physicians to plan a treatment strategy for the peripheral retina before beginning the procedure, according to a company press release.
Specifically targeted treatments will be possible based on imported third-party images, as well as laser retinopexy treatments, the release said.
“We are glad to extend retinal laser preplanning to peripheral treatments now,” Monika Ranta, OD-OS international sales director, said in the release. “PRP once used to be a tedious procedure for physicians and patients alike. Then we introduced the pattern laser for faster treatments, and now we are taking peripheral retinal treatments to the next level by giving trainees easy access to learn the technique and allowing experts to perform sophisticated selectively targeted treatments previously unseen.”
