Lumenis announced the launch of the Digital Duet SLT-YAG platform.
The Digital Duet, which Lumenis describes as the first digital SLT-YAG system on the market, improves glaucoma treatment and posterior capsulotomy with the introduction of advanced digital and connectivity capabilities—redefining the platform as a comprehensive solution for digital imaging, treatment and practice efficiency.
The Digital Duet streamlines workflow in the ophthalmology practice. Doctors can seamlessly generate reports and save data, images and video to the practice network and the electronic medical record, with no need for additional documentation or laser logs, according to Lumenis. The system facilitates quick, transparent communication with referring doctors, allowing practices to easily share reports and treatment documentation with the patient’s primary doctor. Using the Digital Duet, physicians can capture digital images and video before, during and after treatment to improve diagnosis and documentation. Digital imaging also enriches education, whether a physician is showing pathology to patients or using the system’s live viewing capabilities to have multiple students watch procedures in real time.
The Digital Duet also offers state-of-the-art optics for optimal visibility of the trabecular meshwork and anterior segment. The system’s SmartV titratable on-axis/off-axis illumination improves visualization during capsulotomy and iridotomy and enhances illumination of vitreous opacities. In addition, the Digital Duet’s highly accurate super-Gaussian beam profile delivers photodisruptive effect with less energy and time, for lower optical breakdown.
“The Digital Duet’s digital imaging capabilities are allowing me to document pathologies. Also, I can now share images with my patients to help them understand their conditions and feel comfortable with therapy,” Nathan M. Radcliffe, MD, of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, said in a company news release. “It’s exciting to get these totally new capabilities in a system with the enhanced energy control, visualization and precision I need to achieve the outcomes I want for patients with glaucoma.”
For practices that treat retinal conditions, Lumenis also offers the unique Digital Trio configuration. This all-in-one solution includes an integrated state-of-the-art Smart532 photocoagular with SmartPulse subthreshold capabilities to ensure higher efficacy with less collateral damage.
“As the creator and leader in SLT-YAG systems, Lumenis is excited to continue our drive for innovation with the introduction of the next-generation Digital Duet,” said Lumenis CEO Tzipi Ozer-Armon. “With the Digital Duet, our company has reimagined laser therapy as a comprehensive platform with seamless digital imaging, state-of-the-art procedures, and streamlined communication. It’s a perfect reflection of our commitment to improve patients’ health through cutting-edge solutions.”
