BOTTOM LINE

Canon isn’t stingy when it comes to fundus imaging offerings; unsurprisingly given their heritage, three ‘1-series’ Canon Digital NM Fundus Cameras were produced. There’s the CR-1 MK II and then the CF-1 and then the CX-1…all utilizing their signature Canon DSLR camera backs and all doing different things. Of this lineup however, the CR-1 MK II is by far the most efficient and the most patient and operator friendly. No, it does not have autofluorescence nor a pivoting tilt mechanism for greater coverage, nor the fancy bells and whistles of automatic capture and alignment. Yet then again I’m not sure the folks at Canon intended it to when they sketched it up– it wasn’t meant to be a revolutionary fundus imaging system. The CR-1 MKII has all the quality you’d expect from Canon– with superb optics and proficient megapixels produced from their DSLR camera back, but with a simple yet productive feel. Despite the basicness of the CR-1, it is wonderfully efficient in a clinical environment. Alignment is not automated, but it is easily achievable with two simple alignments of split lines and images; capturing an image (once well acquainted) is a terrifically easy process and patient flow is certainly aided by the use of this camera. Canon also claims that the CR-1 MK II has one of the lowest flash intensities of any camera they’ve made. They claim that reducing the brightness required minimizes miosis, thus, shortening the time required for taking multiple pictures such as binocular and stereo images. From our testing, this reduced brightness induces more patient compliance, leading to a quicker process overall when the first image wasn’t satisfactory. The good news is the first images aren’t hard to acquire.

OUR TAKE: Efficient and patient friendly means better patient flow despite missing some automated features (less is more?).

For patients having non-mydriatic retinal exams, the bright flash can be unpleasant. CR-1 Mark II focuses on reducing patient stress to provide comfortable retinal exams by significantly reducing the flash intensity. Because retinal exams play an important role in screening for major illnesses, the ease of examining provided by the CR-1 Mark II supports overall healthcare for people.

 

Efficiency of non-mydriatic retinal exams heavily depends on a patient’s darkness adaptation period. The low flash intensity of CR-1 Mark II minimizes miosis, thus shortening the time required for taking multiple pictures such as binocular and stereo images. The reduced brightness induces more patient compliance, leading to speedy and accurate exams for high throughput screening.

The CR-1 Mark II features an optical system that achieves high-resolution diagnostic images at a 45° angle of view suitable for health check-ups and screening.

 

Two simple steps are all it takes to capture a clear image. Step 1 is the aligning of two halves of a split pupil image, followed in Step 2 by the adjustment of split lines and working distance dots in the retinal display. This ensures that the correct focus and working distance are achieved for the sharpest images possible

CR-1 Mark II has an ergonomic design to simplify operation for the user. A one-hand joystick repositions the camera to the exact view desired. The illuminated operation panel, featuring easy-to-understand control options, has been designed for quick adjustment and selection of the necessary settings. A short reaching distance between the patient and operator allows closer personal interaction and easy access to the patient’s eyes.

 

An adjustable motorized chin rest, forehead guard, and front protection cover perfectly situate the patient securely in position for the exam while ensuring their safety during operation. An optional external fixation target is also available.

“2x” mode provides a closer, more magnified view of the retina. It works by automatically cropping out the peripheral edges of the image so that the region of interest is larger in the frame. Closeups are extremely clear and detailed, due to the high pixel count of the attached digital camera.

The bundled Retinal Imaging Control Software for the CR-1 Mark II puts tools for comprehensive study management, image capture controls, and easy viewing at your fingertips. The intuitive graphical interface is simple and straightforward to use. The PC-based software provides quick input and access to all information and images required to assist in your diagnosis, and data can be easily saved to various external media.

Effortless and convenient handling, printing, saving, and transmitting of all image data to remote locations via the control software are made possible with the CR-1 Mark II’s network capabilities. The DICOM-compliant network interface allows CR-1 Mark II easy integration with existing medical imaging systems and connection to PACS and HIS network configurations. The control software and network capabilities work together for streamlining overall diagnostic workflow.

The Canon CR-1 MK II requires manual interface in order to properly align, focus, and capture the fundus. Unlike other first generation Canon fundus cameras, the CR-1 MK II provides an LCD display to help with alignment.

RETINAphile Fundus Viewing Software runs on Windows 10.
