HiScan Touch "Basic" allows echography with probes up to 20 MHz, but on request can be upgraded for use with high frequency (25, 35 and 50 MHz) probes. HiScan Touch "Full" is already set up to perform echographies at 12, 20, 25, 35 and 50 MHz. Both models perform A-Scan biometry and immersion and contact A-Scan on B-Scan, A-Scan diagnosis and Pachymetry. The acquired images and results of image carried out on patients are saved in a special database that is compatible with Access.
Thanks to its extremely high sensitivity, the 12 MHz B-Scan probe allows acquisition of details images of the posterior segment and especially the vitreous and the orbit.
The 20 MHz probe, with a resolution of up to 150 microns and a scanning depth greater than 40mm, is particularly indicated for the diagnosis of retinal and choroidal pathologies.
The 25 MHz probe is the highest frequency and so provides the highest resolution of all the probes designed for diagnosis of the posterior segment on the market.
Thanks to its swinging movement, the wide angle scanning probe allows the examination of the entire anterior segment of the eye without the need for image elaboration software.
The 35 MHz probe has a resolution of up to 70 microns and a scanning depth of up to 7-8mm. These characteristics, along with its elevated sensitivity, make it particularly suited to the visualization of the entire anterior segment and to use with the touch UBM technique.
The 50 MHz probe has a resolution of up to 35 micron with a scanning depth of up to 5mm. These characteristics make it suited to the extremely high resolutions studies of the iridocorneal angle and the specific structures of the anterior segment.
The excellent zoom ability combined with the images obtained with the35 and 50 MHz probes guarantees a very high precision in the measurement of angles.
All of the probes, including the 25, 35 and 50 MHz probes, can be used with both contact and immersion techniques.
HiScan Touch is the only ultrasound with an integrated system for the 3D reconstruction of the anterior and posterior segment.
The digital recording of the echographic videos allows the analysis of eyeball movement such as, for example, the contraction of the ciliary muscles during the accommodation of the crystalline lens or of the IOL. The elevated sensitivity achieved with the 12MHz probe makes it possible to identify the smallest vitreal inhomogeneities such as blood vessels and other elements.
A-Scan diagnostics are carried out using the 8 MHz non-focused probe with an S amplification curve to measure and diagnose lesions.
A-Scan biometry is performed with the 10 MHz biometry probe which can be used manually, mounted on a tonometer or in immersion with the appropriate cup. The software guarantees differentiated measurements for pseudophakic eyes depending on the different lens types.
The use of heuristic formulas for the acceptance of the measurements guarantees maximum reliability and ease of use. The adoption of more updated formulas for the IOL power calculation guarantees accurate results even in strongly myopic eyes or eyes treated with refractive surgery. The extremely accurate pachymetry achieved with the 50 MHz touch probe, complete the Hiscan Touch ultrasound functions, making it essential in today's ophthalmology practice.
