Topcon Announces Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera NW500

Reliable high-quality image processing with fully automatic cameras combined with enhanced features

TOKYO–(ANTARA/Business Wire)- Topcon Healthcare, a leading provider of medical devices and software solutions for the global eye care community, is pleased to announce the launch of its new fully automated non-mydriatic retina, the NW500. A camera that delivers reliable, sharp-quality imaging with enhanced features.

The NW500 offers innovative slit scan illumination and a rolling shutter mechanism. This helps overcome one of the known sources of image degradation* in its ability to effectively image small pupils of 2.00mm or larger. The 12-megapixel sensor provides excellent quality color fundus images for clear review and analysis.

The NW500 contributes to a streamlined workflow and enhanced patient experience by providing the ability to acquire retinal images in well-lit environments without the need to extend the patient. The NW500 provides excellent quality color fundus images at his three conventional fixations (disc, central, and macular) and nine fixations for peripheral photography.

Touchscreen operation makes capturing quick and easy with a single touch. Fully automated operation gives clinicians the flexibility to delegate screening to nonclinical staff. Improved processing speed** reduces the time it takes to acquire images, allowing operators to increase patient throughput.

A variety of connectivity options are available to suit the needs of your clinical and screening business.

“The NW500 reflects Topcon’s commitment to continuous innovation to improve the quality of care patients receive and to pursue technologies that make care more efficient and accessible,” said the product. said Tobias Kurzke, Senior Director of Management. “The revolutionary slit scanning technology combined with a 12-megapixel camera enables clinicians to deliver fast, sharp-quality images with fewer misses and retakes, making the process of acquiring fundus images faster than ever before. The added benefit of improved patient experience through reduced screening times and no need for expansion provides a competitive advantage for clinicians and large-scale health screening environments. .”
