With this technology we intend to reveal previously unknown information and catalyze the digital transformation of healthcare. With one snapshot image, we will screen for eye diseases, neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer's) and more!
We have built two prototypes tested in 2 clinical trials. From our ophthalmology clinical trial readouts, we can detect naevi automatically and more efficiently than standard methods. Moreover, we are currently working on oxygenation mapping, a biomarker of many pathologies, and measuring the lack of neuro fibre to diagnose glaucoma.
