Nidek’s AFC-330 represents a 40-year pedigree of research and development that redefines the science of non-mydriatic fundus cameras. Combined quantum leaps in operator and patient interface, simplicity, automation, and total practice efficiencies, make this instrument a revolutionary advancement in retinal imaging. The AFC-330 can EASILY switch to manual mode for experienced photographers. The AFC-330 has an integrated CCD camera and microcomputer in one compact unit without requiring an external camera and PC.
The large color touchscreen interface on the AFC-330 places all functions at the operator’s ﬁngertips with intuitive menus and icons. Exam type, patient selection, database edits, and image review are all possible on the AFC-330’s screen.
-Large 8.4″ tilting, color touchscreen
-Small footprint with stand-alone operation
-One of the fastest automatic cameras on the market
All in One:
The integrated high-resolution imaging sensor and internal PC remove the complicated cabling, allowing the AFC-330 to communicate via LAN without the need of an external PC in the screening area, thereby maximizing oﬃce space eﬃciency.
Operator Guidance Features:
The AFC-330 possesses the most advanced automatic features without giving up the manual override operation for certain clinical needs. All automatic features can be set as fully automatic, semi-automatic, or fully manual modes of operation.
Patient Position Indicator:
The image interval indicator displays the time lapse between photos as well as pupil-size reticle. In both automatic and manual mode the AFC-330 provides the operator with on-screen directional indicators. The anterior monitor ensures patient position during retinal focusing.
The Advanced Fundus Camera:
The AFC-330’s automated functions forge new ground in fundus imaging technology with focus on capturing the perfect picture every time, regardless of operator experience or skill level. The AFC-330 makes numerous command calculations per second. Only this level of automation can account for the speed of operation and accuracy of this camera – the essential foundation of practice eﬃciency.
Three-Dimensional Automatic Alignment:
-AutoTrack – patient movements are detected and followed automatically
-AutoFocus – for maximum ease of use
-AutoShot – when optimal conditions are met, the photo is acquired
Being equipped with this level of sophistication, the AFC-330 is able to align and automatically switch from anterior to posterior focusing.
Beneﬁts of Advanced Automation:
The AFC-330 delivers unsurpassed ease of use with advanced features that enhance the management of retinal disease, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. Available modes include:
-AutoStereo Pairing – separation and focal adjustments without user intervention
-AutoPanoramic Imaging – seven fields, performed with automatic fixation adjustments
-External Photography – automatic adjustments to device settings for optimized results
-Single 45° – advanced or standard ﬁxation
The AFC-330 now oﬀers advanced standard-of-care imaging techniques that are practical to perform without disrupting patient ﬂow.
Performance and Versatility:
The speed and simplicity of the AFC-330 results in an enhanced practice ﬂow meaning more accurate data, faster exams, and less need for retakes. The AFC-330 fulﬁlls the goal of elevating the patient’s experience.
-Rapid processing and automated functions
-Less time at the device for patients and staﬀ
-Fewer compromised images
-Fewer data transcription errors
The AFC-330 improves eﬃciency in time, space, and patient comfort. The lower ﬂash intensity and sound-dampened mechanical movements, along with automatic blink and pupil measurement, make for the perfect picture every time with fewer retakes and happier patients. It is arguably one of the fastest automatic retinal cameras available with capture time often less than ﬁve seconds.
