Optomed Aurora IQ ocular fundus image.

Get the BIG picture

Optomed Aurora® IQ handheld fundus camera enables a detailed non-mydriatic examination of the ocular fundus with a high-resolution image.

The image can be taken by non-physician staff, further integrated into the hospital system, and used for treatment follow-up.

Aurora IQ benefits in neurology

Clinically validated benefits of Optomed fundus imaging in neurology2

Success rate in imaging of emergency department patients

Reliably completed by an emergency physician or a nurse

Compre­hensive fundus examination without pupil dilation

Integration to medical records and further use

Improve papilledema detection

Detecting papilledema through an undilated pupil with traditional direct ophthalmoscopy is extremely difficult, and critical retinal findings might be left undetected. Non-mydriatic fundus photography can replace direct ophthalmoscopy in many settings, allowing faster and more accurate diagnosis of various neurologic and systemic disorders.1,4

Patient with headache, hypertensive crisis or other neurological deficit comes into a clinic

To rule out more severe underlying cause for the neurologic condition examine optic disc rapidly with Aurora IQ

Save fundus image electronically to medical records, and send image for consultation if needed

Detect presence or absence of papilledema or other acute retinal changes immediately and determine treatment plan
