In many diagnostic situations, glare and reflections can be an unwanted byproduct of additional illumination. Our engineers have developed a simple but amazingly effective new solution for minimising this problem – a polarisation filter system for our Lighting and Magnifying Loupe combinations, giving you even better views and more detail than before.
The new polarisation filter system is available in combination with the following magnification / illumination combinations:
The P2 Polarisation filter is a high-performance polarisation system that consists of a filter for the illumination source, as well as 2 filters for your HEINE Binocular Loupes:
Polarisation filters are used in many optical applications to absorb certain wave lengths of light. The effect of this absorption is a dramatic reduction of glare, the suppression of oblique reflections, and enhanced contrast of images.
The benefits of polarisation can be best seen when taking photographs of reflective surfaces (e.g. water, glass, skin, and metal) with and without polarisation filters – please see pictures on the right.
The HEINE P2 supports Dermatologic procedures such as: hair follicle examination, spider veins, psoriatic pits (Nails), and excision of skin cancer.
In all applications, contrast is improved and reflections minimized. The polarisation filter can also help to accentuate the appearance of inflammation in Acne and sun damage.
The HEINE P2 Polarisation Filter helps to reduce reflections in the mouth for bright, high contrast, and glare free views.
The HEINE P2 allows direct subsurface visualisation through the superficial skin layers for better visualisation of veins.
The HEINE P2 Polarisation Filter helps to eliminate the surface glare of skin and enhances contrast for better visualization.
The HEINE P2 Polarisation Filter helps to eliminate reflections, allowing user‘s to accurately assess tissue appearance and condition.
