Differentiating Ultrawidefield Cameras

Are all ultrawidefield cameras the same?  The Cole Eye Institute Center for Ophthalmic Bioinformatics recently conducted a study examining this in a widefield broad line fundus (WBLF) imaging device (Zeiss Clarus) and a widefield confocal laser scanning ophthalmoscopy (WSLO) device (Optos California). Interestingly, the cameras do differ in terms of area of detection, but both imaging devices rarely meet ultrawidefield consensus definition.  Below are examples of a patient with a central retinal vein occlusion with images taken on both a BLFI imaging device and a CLSO imaging device.

To learn more, this project will be presented as a poster at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) Annual Meeting (presentation number – poster number: 1552-A0312) on April 29th 8:15 am.  Come check us out!
