                                                                                                     the newest and most advanced fully standardized instruments

                 complete with cine-loop, sensitivity (gain) adjustments of frozen images,
                                                                   software allowing for various automated settings, e.g., measurements, quantitative echography I and II, angle kappa,
                         and for automated diagnoses (
e.g., A1 to diagnose retinal surface)
                                                lap-top based, fully digitized, newest software
                                                                          Standardized A-scan frequency 8 MHz,  Standardized B-scan frequencies 10, 20, 25, and 50 MHZ (UBM)
