The VX-20 is Kowa's unique, hybrid combination retinal camera that offers versatile, high quality retinal imaging in one easy-to-use system. Due to its outstanding features, the VX-20 remains the first choice for clinicians. With a built in PC and high-resolution camera, this fundus camera is a versatile diagnostic tool with stand-alone capability. The VX-20 fits perfectly within the clinical environment. The VX-20 offers enhanced functionality at the touch of a button allowing the clinician to switch quickly between mydriatic & non-mydriatic modes. It includes a 7 inch wide, LCD color touchscreen that is simple to use and ideally positioned to ensure easy patient observation. What's more, the control panel's updated design improves the operator experience, ensuring everything is within easy reach for the clinician.
In addition to non-mydriatic color, mydriatic color, fluorescein angiography (FA), Red-free (RF), fundus autofluorescence (FAF*) is added to allow 5 photography modes.
75mm reduced height of examined eye from our previous model ("VX-10" Series) allows for photography in a more relaxed posture.
The instant image filing feature allows ID management of images, browsing, and direct output to an external printer. By connecting to the Kowa VK-2 image management system, images can be transferred to electronic medical records.
In mydriatic mode, the fundus can be observed through the optical viewfinder, allowing image capture exactly as viewed. This feature is particularly helpful for shooting the peripheral part of the retina.
Field of view can be switched between 45°/27° in non-mydriatic mode or between 50°/30° in mydriatic mode by a simple pressing of a button.
In mydriatic mode, the fundus can be observed through the optical viewfinder, allowing photography of images exactly as viewed. This feature is particularly helpful for photographing peripheral part of the retina.
