Improved Technology, Speedier Clinics, and Tailored Treatments

A panel of experts review two imaging tools aimed at improving the diagnosis and management of disease.


As the demands of precision medicine continue to grow, so too do patients’ expectations of efficient and efficacious office visits. Imaging plays a major role in the diagnosis and management of disease, and the more that is known about a patient’s anatomy, the better treatment can be tailored to his or her specific needs.  

Two tools available for your clinic—the ZEISS PLEX Elite and the ZEISS CLARUS 700—offer ways by which reliable, detailed imaging reports can be acquired. On the PLEX Elite, clinicians can obtain high-quality OCT angiography (OCTA) images. As we expand our knowledge of OCTA’s utility in a number of disease states, it becomes clearer that this noninvasive imaging modality will play a larger role in the diagnosis and assessment of multiple diseases. Royce W.S. Chen, MD, provides a survey of how OCTA may prove useful for a wide variety of disease states, and Sunil K. Srivastava, MD, offers detailed analyses of how OCTA informed his treatment decisions in cases of diabetic retinopathy and uveitis.

The CLARUS 700 may be used to capture multiple imaging modalities in a single session. Jesse J. Jung, MD, explains how the expansive offerings of the CLARUS 700 are improved by a number of software updates, and offers specific examples that illustrate how small changes to image resolution or montaging technology make large differences in disease assessment.

The ZEISS suite of imaging platforms are designed to help you make informed decisions while keeping your clinic running smoothly. The experiences of Drs. Chen, Jung, and Srivastava demonstrate that point well.
