Equipment

At the R.O.I. we work with the best ophthalmic equipment, to comply with with the latest clinical and industry standards. We regularly invest in new devices and are involved in the development of some next-generation devices. Our CRU team is continuously trained and certified to ensure optimal results in even the most challenging research projects.

We are dedicated to implement a DICOM-based workflow for the majority of our imaging modalities, thereby ensuring that images and descriptive metadata are processed simultaneously. We are using Merge Eye Care PACS (previously OIS Symphony) for safe storage and easy viewing of images, supplemented by device-specific viewers when specialized analyses or viewing operations are required.
