Quantel Medical (Quantel), a global ophthalmic medical device company dedicated to developing leading technologies to improve the diagnosis and treatment of ocular diseases, today announced the launch of the new generation of the Compact Touch ophthalmic ultrasound platform at the 35th Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS 2017) held in Lisbon, Portugal October 7 – 11. The new Compact Touch features exceptional image quality and state-of-the-art interactivity in a compact, versatile design.
Since the last generation of Compact Touch was launched in 2008, more than 3,000 units have been sold worldwide. This best-selling Quantel Medical ultrasound product has been prized for its high image quality, intuitive software design, compacity, IOL calculation options and pachymetry.
Improvements in the new generation of Compact Touch include a 15 MHz B probe to increase the quality of the B-scan imaging, which the platform performs along with A-scan and pachymetry modes. Interactivity is enhanced with DICOM compatibility, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and HDMI video output. The sleek, modern design now utilizes a new generation touch screen interface, and the device is fanless and silent as a tablet. User-friendly design and software enhancements improve workflow. CE mark and FDA approval are pending.
