The Xephilio OCT-A1 Optical Coherence Tomography device, together with the required RX Capture software, computer and LCD monitor (collectively, the "Xephilio OCT-A1 System"), is an optical coherence tomography system indicated for the in-vivo imaging and measurement of the retina, retinal nerve fibre layer, and optic disc. In addition, it is a tool to aid in the diagnosis and management of retinal diseases by a clinician. The Xephilio OCT-A1 System has a scanning speed of 70,000 A-scans per second with optical depth resolution of approximately three microns. With its integrated scanning laser ophthalmoscopic real-time retinal tracking technology, the Xephilio OCT A-1 System automatically retains the scan position and scan protocol for each patient from one exam to the next, eliminating the need for manual adjustment by the operator. A mouse-controlled, three-click operation is used to engage the automated alignment, tracking, and acquisition of high-quality images and scans. To help create a positive, effective user experience, the positioning of the components of the Xephilio OCT-A1 System can allow for the operator and patient to sit side-by-side.

High-definition imaging

Xephilio OCT-A1 offers excellent native optical resolution. In combination with the averaging of multiple scans (up to 200) excellent image quality with amazing detail resolution can be achieved.

Accurate scanning, outstanding ease of use

The system’s integrated Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (SLO) contributes significantly to scan quality and ease of use. By providing real-time retinal tracking, it enables accurate monitoring of the examination.

Fast and precise follow-up

The SLO also enables accurate follow-up examinations by automatically adjusting to the same scan position as used in the previous exam. For reliable comparison, the software automatically selects identical scan parameters.

Automatically achieve consistently high image quality

At times, involuntary eye movement during examinations are unavoidable. With its integrated SLO real-time retinal tracking technology the systems allows you to maintain the exact same scanning position automatically. As a result, Xephilio OCT-A1 retinal tracking greatly reduces movement artefacts and thus provides consistent, high image quality.

High definition, enhanced depth, wide field of view

With Xephilio OCT-A1, you can average up to 200 scans to achieve an image resolution that allows you to see in detail both the layer structure as well as the vitreous pleated structure. For optimal imaging, the system offers special scan modes for vitreous and choroid imaging, as well as a particularly wide scan width of up to 13 mm

Reliable 10 layer recognition

Canon’s Xephilio OCT-A1 can automatically detect and distinguish 10 layers of the retina – including Bruch’s membrane (BM) – thanks to its excellent image quality and resolution.

Fast and easy acquisition with incredible detail

Examinations with the Xephilio OCT-A1 are extremely simple and therefore easy to delegate. A complete range of intelligent functions enables fully automated examinations. The auto-re-scan function intervenes if a patient makes unwanted eye movements and automatically compensates for any artefacts.

Automated anterior tracking

After pointing approximately to the centre of the pupil, the system automatically detects and maintains the exact centre, even when the patient is moving his eye or blinks.

Automatic image optimization

Afterwards, the built-in autofocus and C-gate functions will automatically determine the highest signal quality for the best possible examination results.

Real-time retinal tracking

By detecting and compensating movements in the fundus images on a frame-by-frame basis the impact of small involuntary movements are reduced during fixation and motion artefacts greatly reduced.

Fast, consistent exams – high patient comfort

Xephilio OCT-A1 offers ten fixed and freely programmable exam pre-sets, allowing you to combine multiple scan modes into a single exam. Using pre-sets can help you improve the workflow and consistency of exams and, at the same time, increase patient comfort.

Versatile reporting possibilities, extensive normative databases

Xephilio OCT-A1 provides you with a full range of reporting tools, including the relevant normative databases. Thanks to its extensive DICOM and EMR capability, results from multiple Canon imaging modalities can be stored, shared and analysed as needed in your daily practice.


The system provides a detailed analysis of retinal thickness using comparisons with normative databases, ETDRS grids, various tables and 3D visualizations.


Early detection is the key to slowing the progression of glaucoma. Xephilio OCT-A1 supports NFL + GCL + IPL and GCL + IPL measurements with a wide set of graphical representations for complete analysis.

Combined report

By sharing the same database with an optional retinal camera, fundus images can be easily integrated into the OCT evaluation. Fundus and OCT images can be displayed side by side or mapped and superimposed as needed.

Optic Disc

Xephilio OCT-A1 allows a comprehensive analysis of all optic disc parameters, including comparisons with an extensive normative database.

Progression report

Analysis results comparing five examinations arranged in time sequence of eyes on the same side in the same scan mode, and same size of scanning area.

Anterior segment analysis

With the optional Anterior Segment Adapter ASA-1, Xephilio OCT-A1 also gives you the ability to analyse and document the anterior segment of the eye during the same exam. The included measurement package allows you to quantify standard parameters quickly and easily.

The corneal thickness analysis on Xephilio OCT-A1 is presented as maps of corneal thickness and epithelium thickness including corneal grids, as well as numerical table.

The anterior segment analysis kit allows you to measure the distance between two points, arbitrary angles, as well as AOD (Angle Opening distance) and TISA (Trabecular Iris Space Area) values.
