Get the Most out of Your Insight 100

The Insight 100 is a very high frequency ultrasound imaging device. With multiple scan settings, including the option to tailor to your needs, it helps you capture images behind the iris that are detailed and repeatable.

To set you on a path to success, ArcScan training includes robust pre-training materials as well as in-person didactic and hands-on training. Once you have completed this session, the materials on this site are here to refresh your learning and explore the breadth of possibilities that Insight 100 imaging offers.

It is also a good introduction for new team members or those who are stepping into Insight 100 imaging. Our Clinical Applications team is always available to you to address questions and fine-tune your skills.

Dr. Dan Reinstein created a nomogram using data from ArcScan images and other measurements. There are many other options as well.

DISCLAIMER: ArcScan is not providing billing or clinical advice and does not serve as an expert in these areas.

Among the many applications and benefits that come with the use of ArcScan’s Insight 100, did you know that scanning may be eligible for reimbursement in the United States?

The ArcScan Insight 100 is a UBM, so consider reviewing the codes your experts suggest. As you know, reimbursement varies regionally.

  • Check for restrictions on multiple tests conducted in the same day  
  • Review the medical reason for the test.

To perform ultrasounds, the patients is seated, then positioned so that an EyeSeal makes contact with the area around their eye. The EyeSeal is then filled with saline through an IV bag. The Insight 100 is filled with distilled water and the robotic probe transmits ultrasonic pulses.

Training in image capture with the Insight 100 is imperative, but since it is driven by robotics, the instrument itself ensures repeatable scans and the software enables selection of the type of scan. Ophthalmic imaging skills are a benefit as scans are selected and analyzed, of course.

Unlike other devices, the transducer never comes in contact with the eye. The eye is protected with a disposable interface called an EyeSeal, which prevents any contact with the scanner. Imagine a “swim goggle” design that is filled with saline solution. As with all devices, cleaning between each patient is required.

It is not necessary since no part of the device touches the eye. With the EyeSeal filled with saline, patients share that they are comfortable.  As the clinician, you can always make the decision to add numbing for comfort, of course.  TIP:  To minimize blinking or dryness, have your patient cover and close the other eye.

The Insight 100 has FDA clearance for individuals 18 years of age and older. It is ergonomically designed to be comfortable for those who can maintain a seated position supported with a chin rest and hand rest. Average scanning times from preparation through completion are approximately 5-10 minutes per eye. Your clinic experience may vary based on the number and type of scans.

Once installed and set up, the Insight 100 should not be moved. The ultrasound probe is sensitive and the fluidics reservoir can also be disrupted by movement. If you have questions about relocating the device, please contact your Regional Sales Manager.

From setup to completed scan is typically 5-10 minutes for both eyes. Variables include experience of the operator, which scans are selected and how many are performed. Filling the machine and ensuring the patient is set appropriately take more time than the scan itself.

Yes. The Insight 100 has central and peripheral fixation targets that can use different meridians or rotate around the hours of the clock. There are limits to the position of the probe, however. For specific details, contact your Regional Sales Manager.

Yes, the Insight 100 has DICOM capabilities.

The operator screen shows a live image of the eye and identifies the meridian or clock hour where the image was taken, the patient orientation and a reference image of the area that was scanned. Every scanned image will include this detailed data.
