Alcon, an eye care division of Novartis, has launched new NGENUITY 3D visualization system with DATAFUSION at the 2018 American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) annual meeting.
The high-definition screen of the NGENUITY system will continue to provide retinal surgeons unprecedented 3D visualization of the back of the eye with greater depth and detail during surgery than traditional microscopes.
With the addition of the DATAFUSION software, NGENUITY now also offers integration with the CONSTELLATION Vision System, the leading technology platform for vitreoretinal surgery.
“At Alcon, we are always looking for ways to bring forth additional functionality and integrations that help surgeons have the most optimal and immersive surgical experience possible,” said Sergio Duplan, Region President, North America, Alcon.
“The NGENUITY 3D Visualization System with DATAFUSION represents a new age of integration in the surgical retina field. We are combining two of our game-changing systems to streamline the customer experience, allowing surgeons to track real-time data feedback on one screen during procedures.”
The DATAFUSION software integrates the CONSTELLATION Vision System and the NGENUITY 3D Visualization System, allowing surgeons to track key data parameters in real-time, such as intraocular pressure, flow rates, infusion pressure and laser power, on one screen.
Additional functionality simplifies the surgical experience allowing for customization, including the introduction of four preset imaging modes, two footswitch control options, advanced 2D or 3D video capture, and enhancement of the graphical user interface and procedure flow to provide an improved white balance process.
The viewing platform of the NGENUITY 3D Visualization System revolutionized vitreoretinal surgery when it was first launched. Compared to traditional analog microscopes, NGENUITY delivers up to 19 percent increased magnification to amplify the view for intricate tasks, up to 2.7 times extended depth of field to maintain focus across an expanded surgical space, and up to 19 percent increased depth resolution to resolve fine details when managing challenging pathologies.1
“When you’re performing hundreds of eye surgeries each year, the technology matters. I was an early adopter of the NGENUITY 3D Visualization System and am thrilled with DATAFUSION because it has really helped me streamline my surgery process,” said Steve Charles, MD, Charles Retina Institute in Germantown, Tenn. “The depth of field and level of magnification it provides, as well as the integration with the CONSTELLATION Vision System, means I have all the most important information front and center so I can deliver the very best outcomes to my patients.”
The NGENUITY 3D Visualization System with DATAFUSION is now available and can be experienced first-hand, along with other new product offerings from Alcon, at the ASRS Alcon booth #401 beginning Saturday, July 21, 2018.
The NGENUITY 3D Visualization System was developed in collaboration with TrueVision® 3D Surgical, a California-based leader in digital 3D visualization and guidance for microsurgery. It consists of a 3D stereoscopic, high-definition digital video camera and workstation to provide magnified stereoscopic images of objects during micro-surgery.
Additional functionality updates simplify the surgical experience allowing for customization, including the introduction of four preset imaging modes, two footswitch control options, advanced 2D or 3D video capture, and enhancement of the graphical user interface and procedure flow to provide an improved white balance process. Please refer to the User Manual for a complete list of appropriate uses, warnings and precautions.
