Compact Touch – three-in-one ultrasound system

Compact in design and definitive in diagnosis, the new A/B/P ultrasound platform from Quantel Medical/Ellex is designed to transform views of even the finest ocular structures, enabling users to visualise, diagnose and treat more accurately and efficiently.

According to its manufacturer, its Compact Touch platform benefits from a new generation 15 MHz B probe with a resolution increased by 30%. Small in size, this probe benefits from excellent ergonomics to facilitate its handling and use. Coupled with the exclusive technology of biometry in B-mode, the user can automatically measure the axial length from a B-mode image, a technique essential for patients with long myopic eye associated with staphylomas.

“Ultrasound biometry is the only technology that allows measurements in all eye types, including when patients present a dense cataract,” the company states.

“With the immersion technique, the axial length measurement accuracy is 0.03mm. The patented A-scan Probeam, exclusive to Quantel Medical, generates a laser beam that offers a fixation point to the patient facilitating: this aids the measurement while increasing ease of acquisition. The IOL calculation function allows comparison between different IOL types and calculation formulae. A total of 12 calculation formulae is available including post- refractive surgery formulae. The IOL implant calculation is completed at 0.25D.”

For glaucoma diagnosis and refractive surgery, Compact Touch offers several measuring modes and corneal maps with an accuracy of ± 5 microns, allowing physicians to adjust intraocular pressure (IOP) through built-in IOP correction tables, Ellex says.

A connected ultrasound platform, the new Compact Touch can now import and export images and patient reports to the PACS through a fully integrated DICOM interface. To further increase the working ergonomics around the patient, its sleek design makes the system easily transportable to fit in any working environment or examination room.
