New dimension of OCT Technology to be unveiled by Topcon
at Optrafair 2015
Newbury, UK, 3rd February 2015.
Once again TOPCON brings the first of a new dimension of OCT machines to the
market. The next stage in the evolution of OCT has arrived - The NEW Swept Source
DRI OCT Triton series*1 with 1,050nm
wavelength and the world’s fastest*2
AScans/second, is the first and only posterior
segment swept source instrument. The
longer wavelength of light allows the DRI
OCT Triton to reveal posterior segment
conventional forms
of OCT, rapidly
penetrating ocular tissues such as the
choroid and even the sclera, without the
light source being obscured by cataracts or
other media opacities. The DRI OCT Triton
can reveal the entire tomogram from
vitreous through to sclera at the press of a single button with high sensitivity and speed,
without sacrificing the view of one structure over another.
The DRI Triton is capable of capturing 256 B-scans in just three seconds. 256 3D cube
scans reduce interpolation between slices and allow the most revealing imagery of
individual layers available. With greater signal penetration through the RPE the Triton
is capable of full choroidal thickness mapping and coronal imagery to a digital
resolution of one micron. Powerful analysis tools are supported by a robust normative
Wide field scanning (12 x 9mm) allows fully automated mapping and illustration of both
the macula and optic disc topography in one single scan allowing segmentation of the
retina, ganglion cell complex and the RPE, potentially halving the number of scans the
patient requires. The patient experience is further enhanced by the short capture time
and the invisible 1,050nm light source, greatly reducing the impact of eye movements
and improving scan success rates with less cooperative patients such as children.
In addition to anterior segment scanning*3, combining Swept Source OCT with a True
Colour Fundus camera means that the DRI OCT Triton can display high resolution
fundus images with clear retinal vessel and macular mapping to allow pin point
registration of the deepest pathology, further improving examination efficiency and
supporting confident diagnosis. The Triton Plus offers multimodal imagery in the form
of Green Autofluorescence and digital red free in one unit*1.

Notes to Editor
About Topcon
Topcon is a global leader and technological innovator in the field of ophthalmic
instrumentation and imaging systems. Founded in Tokyo in 1932, Topcon now has a
worldwide presence and offers the most comprehensive range of optical equipment on
the market.
Topcon OCT Legacy
In 2006 Topcon was the first company to introduce a commercial Spectral Domain
OCT. The range of SD OCT incorporated a true colour fundus camera, which proved
to be a valuable tool in OCT analysis.
In 2009 Topcon introduced the series of models, the 3D OCT-2000 and the 3D OCT2000FA+ which converted the OCT into a unique multi-module tool for OCT imaging,
true colour images, FA an FAF images.
In 2012 Topcon introduced the first commercial retinal Swept Source OCT, the DRI
OCT Atlantis. The Atlantis produces stunning images of the vitreous body and
choroidal structures.
In 2013 Topcon introduced the world’s first fully automated SD OCT with integrated
true colour fundus camera, the 3D OCT-1 Maestro. The 3D OCT-1 is operated by 1
touch of your finger tip, which is unique in the world.
Topcon are the only equipment manufacturer also supplying practice management
solution with full integration of the front of house and the back office operations, called
i-Clarity. i-Clarity Practice Management Software (PMS) has been built with continuous
support and involvement from its users, making it the most user friendly PMS to date.
