Thomas Theelen is Associate Professor and staff ophthalmologist at the Department of Ophthalmology, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre, since 2003. that innovations break down the barriers to SLOs widespread adoption. “Direct comparisons have already shown us that SLO images While eye specialists agree that Scan- offer better contrast, and the use of multiple colored lasers allows ning Laser Ophthalmology (SLO) for more precision than traditional fundus cameras. outperforms the traditional fundus camera, it has remained an exclusive Dr. Thomas Theelen, UMC St. Radboud, Nijmegen. technology until today. The physical size and high price of SLO based Since the introduction of SLO in 1979, and, especially, its retinal imaging systems restricted them confocal variant in the mid 1990s, the inherent benefits of exclusively to hospital ophthalmology SLO technology have helped it evolve from its early role departments and large optometry practices. Now, SLO has as a platform for monochromatic imaging, fluorescein become available for practices of all sizes, big and small, angiography and perimetry, to support new applications. with the arrival of a compact and lightweight SLO solution. Today these include confocal SLO (also known as Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy ), Scanning Laser Doppler Flowmetry (not available), Scanning Laser Angiography, Scanning Laser “SLO will help us to enable the automatic detection of diabetes and AMD.” Corneal Microscopy, and Scanning Laser Microperimetry. Among those who think it will are Dr. Thomas Theelen, Associate Professor at the Department of Ophthalmology, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center, the Netherlands, and Prof. Giovanni Staurenghi, of Professor of Ophthalmology at the Sacco Hospital Eye Clinic, University of Milan, Italy. They believe that today’s technological momentum will finally make SLO’s superior performance truly accessible for everyone. And, that this is essential given the rapidly growing incidence of diabetic retinopathy, AMD, and glaucoma that healthcare providers both in the West and developing countries are facing. Dr. Theelen, a firm advocate of SLO, explains why he is happy Fundus camera dilated Easyscan undilated
