The PalmScan A2000 A-Scan is a unique device capable of performing both applanation as well as immersion biometry. It does both quickly and with extreme accuracy. The A2000 makes immersion biometry effortless through the use of the E-Z Tip Immersion Shell and the portable A-Scan ultrasound. With the A2000, time will no longer be a limiting factor in the office as the device takes only seconds to complete an immersion A-Scan, giving doctors quick results and leaving patients with no mess and no discomfort. With the A2000, it is not necessary for doctors to recline their patients or to juggle multiple tools in order to obtain an accurate reading. The advanced technology built into the handheld PalmScan A2000 is what makes this process possible. Through the use of ultrasonic waves, the A2000 is able to quickly measure thicknesses of the anterior chamber, lens, and axial eye length to calculate the required IOL (intraocular lens) for a patient before surgery. PalmScan’s battery operated ultrasonic technology allows for measurements of even the densest cataractous eyes, giving you 100% patient coverage. Another feature of the A2000 is the Contact/Applanation mode where the PalmScan utilizes our proven “Corneal Compression Detection” technique which warns the user of any corneal compression, preventing the user from taking inaccurate measurements. A doctor can also see multiple patients with one tool since the battery operated device has the power to conduct many A-Scan measurements and the capability to generate and store those reports.
