Zeiss Releases Glaucoma Diagnostic and Management Application
Carl Zeiss Meditec AG announced the US release of the Forum Glaucoma Workplace, a new glaucoma diagnostic and management software application.
Available in the Forum data management system, this application supports clinical assessment at the point of care by delivering examination data in new, clinically relevant ways, according to the company.
“With Forum and the new Forum Glaucoma Workplace, Zeiss provides doctors with an integrated solution that allows them to see glaucoma in a completely different light—by bringing together in new ways the structural and functional data and analyses from gold standard diagnostic devices,” Ludwin Monz, president and CEO of Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, said in the news release.
The software application provides an off-instrument review of data from the Humphrey Field Analyzer (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc.) in the examination lane and virtually anywhere in the practice. It also enables interactive, functional, guided progression analysis (GPA) to help identify patients whose disease is progressing and who is at risk for further visual field loss. With interactive GPA, physicians can adjust GPA parameters as needed, change baselines, reset baselines after surgery, or exclude outliers, according to the company news release.
Through Forum, clinicians have immediate access to visual field data, optical coherence tomography scans, and fundus images to support the diagnosis and management of glaucoma. The Humphrey Field Analyzer- Cirrus Combined Report (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc.) simplifies interpretation and provides an at-a-glance assessment of structural and functional data.
