The new ANTERION provides the most important anterior segment examinations and measurements in one modular, upgradeable platform. It is a single, workflow-efficient solution that brings together corneal topography and tomography, anterior segment metrics, axial length measurement and IOL calculation to transform the day-to-day routine of busy practices and clinics.
Heidelberg Engineering has leveraged its core OCT technologies in the development of the ANTERION, making the best use not only of swept-source OCT but also of patented tracking and composite imaging technologies to deliver exceptionally high-quality images of the anterior segment. Visual confirmation of all measurements with high-resolution swept-source OCT images establishes a new level of diagnostic confidence.
Prof. Oliver Findl, from the Hanusch Hospital in Vienna confirms the exceptional quality of the ANTERION images: “We had high-contrast and high-resolution OCT images of the entire anterior segment with little or no artifact movements. The scans were possible in eyes with different pathologies of the anterior and posterior segment.”
“ANTERION is a multimodal imaging platform, which can replace several devices, including corneal topographers and tomographers, pachymeters and biometers,” said Jacqueline Sousa Asam, MD, Medical Science Liaison at Heidelberg Engineering. “That leads to great improvement in the workflow and patient comfort in busy clinics, since moving patients can be unpleasant and time consuming. In addition, ANTERION displays information in very comprehensive layouts together with high-resolution OCT images, which also makes surgical planning faster and more efficient.”
Modular design: Imaging, Cornea, Cataract, and Metrics Apps
As the foundation of the ANTERION platform, the Imaging App focuses on the high-resolution visualization of the entire anterior segment, from the anterior surface of the cornea to the posterior surface of the lens. The other ANTERION Apps adjust to various clinical needs.
The Cornea App provides a comprehensive diagnostic solution to assess a patient’s individual corneal geometry. Corneal alterations can be diagnosed and monitored and the planning and evaluation of refractive surgery enhanced.
The Cataract App combines key measurements for cataract surgery planning: corneal analysis, anterior chamber depth, lens thickness, and axial length. The ability to assess total corneal power supports a more suitable IOL selection, while the integrated spheric and toric IOL calculator adds convenience to the pre-operative routine.
The Metrics App features swept-source OCT images with the anterior chamber displayed in a radial view. Predefined angle parameters can be determined and free-hand measurements can also be performed.
Swept-source and spectral domain OCT optimized at Heidelberg Engineering
Heidelberg Engineering has optimized swept-source OCT technology for anterior segment imaging on the new ANTERION and will continue to innovate with spectral domain OCT retinal imaging on the SPECTRALIS. Both imaging platforms aim to deliver the highest-quality images that empower eye care professionals to make confident diagnostic decisions that ultimately improve patient care.

Norsk Titanium & QuesTek Test Additive Titanium Alloy17.6.2019 10:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding
Building upon the collaboration announced at Farnborough in July 2018, Norsk Titanium (Norsk) has successfully printed QuesTek’s custom titanium wire in support of initial material properties testing. QuesTek thoroughly evaluated the microstructure and measured the properties in several heat-treated conditions including various combinations of stress relief and solution treatment. Superior performance versus Ti-6-4 has been demonstrated. The highest performance condition was a basic one-hour solution treatment where an average Ultimate Tensile Strength (UTS) of 147 ksi and an average elongation of 18% was measured. This represents an increase in both strength and elongation, while maintaining fatigue performance, over standard Ti-6Al-4V. “QuesTek’s high-performance titanium alloy provides an opportunity for Norsk’s customers to optimize components printed with Norsk Titanium’s RPD™ process and opens doors for new applications,” said Norsk Chief Technology Officer Carl Johnson.
