Blindness due to retinal disorders is the leading cause of vision-loss in developed countries. Assessing the overall health of a person is challenging and requires invasive tests at times.
Imaging of the back of the eye is the only noninvasive method that allows for visualization of the nerves and micro-vessels. Computer-aided analysis of retinal images to quantify pathological signs of various diseases, show the same, or better, sensitivity as a single medical expert.
Aurteen Inc. will provide a computer-aided diagnostic (CAD) software capable of obtaining a list of probabilities of various diseases being present in a patient. These include retinal disorders, cardiac disease, as well as neurodegenerative disorders via automated analysis of images of retina.
Aurteen Inc. provides a state-of-the-art software for CAD of a preterm retinal disorder as well as quantitative tools for assessment of signs of severe diabetic retinopathy.
