HRT3 RCM in vivo corneal microscope to relaunch
HRT3 Rostock Cornea Module (RCM) will be relaunched globally to offer in vivo corneal confocal microscopy in its anterior segment product portfolio, according to a press release by Heidelberg Engineering.
HRT3 RCM will be relaunched in Spring 2020. Changes included new headrest for corneal assessment and integration into the company’s HEYEX 2 image management software environment, allowing for streamlined workflows.
“The relaunch of the HRT3 RCM is exciting as this unique imaging device aids the ophthalmologist in the diagnosis of corneal diseases by allowing imaging at a cellular level. The high-resolution images have been pivotal for visualization of corneal infections such as acanthamoeba and fungi, as well as quantification of corneal nerves in patients with diabetes mellitus and dry eye disease. The HRT3 RCM is a very promising tool for both the clinician wanting to make a diagnosis in the clinic, as well as researchers interested in the cellular basis of disease, thus facilitating in vivo histology”, said Jaya Chidambaram, BSc (Hons), MBBS, MRCOphth, PhD, Senior Lecturer, University of Manchester, United Kingdom, the press release.
