A 12-megapixel sensor delivers excellent quality colour fundus images for clear review and analysis.The NW500 contributes to a streamlined workflow and enhanced patient experience by offering the ability to acquire retinal images in a lighted setting without the need to dilate patients. The NW500 offers excellent quality colour fundus images across the traditional 3 fixation points (Disc, Centre, and Macula), as well as the 9 fixation positions for peripheral photography.Touch-screen operation offers rapid, simple capture with just one touch. Fully-automated operation gives clinicians the flexibility to delegate screening to non-clinical staff. The improved processing speed** means it takes less time to capture images and gives operators the ability to increase patient throughput. A variety of connectivity options are available to suit the needs of clinical and screening businesses.“The NW500 reflects Topcon’s commitment to continuous innovation in pursuit of technology that helps to improve the quality-of-care patients receive and make care more efficient and accessible,” says Senior Director of Product Management, Tobias Kurzke. “Combined, the innovative slit scan technology and 12-megapixel camera offer clinicians fast, sharp quality imaging with less failure and retakes, making the process of acquiring fundus images faster and more reliable than before.
