Imedos Retina Camera – SCHENKER Science & Technology

Diagnostic Technology for the future

Why choose Retinal Vessel?

The eye is a diagnostic window for the vascular medicine in ophthalmology and internal medicine to examine microcirculation, like early detection, diagnostic and therapy of eye diseases, but it also works for:

  • Research of microcirculation, pathomechanisms and vasoactive therapies
  • Prevention of vascular medicine
  • Risk marker for cardiovascular diseases

Eyes are the unique optical and non-invasive excess for measuring of retinal microvascular biomarker

It can reflects microvascular changes of other organs.

Our Focus

By microvascular diseases, we know:

  • Function changes before damages
  • Functional vascular changes are detectable often long before the first morphological damages

Therefore,we focus on Vascular Function Imaging and Measurements to prevent damages

New parts of technology

  • Diameters are measured alongvessel segments and in relation to time online
  • Autoregulation or vesselfunction are stimulated to response for function diagnostics
  • Different vessel parametersare calculated from diameters

Advantages of technology

  • High precision up to 1µm
  • Reliable
  • Non-invasive
  • Contactless
  • Easy to handle
  • Can be used for Screening(SVA)

Two approaches of Retinal vessel analysis

  1. Static vessel analysis (SVA)

Static vessel analysis needs only one retina picture. Static Micro Vessel Analysis analyses the micro blood vessels of the retina statically, i.e. based on still images taken with a specialized camera 

 

  1. Dynamicvessel analysis (DVA)

Dynamic vessel analysis uses a Picture sequencefor online measurements of the Vessel diameter. Stimulation responses can berecorded. 

Examples of function diagnostics

Applications

  • Microvascular research
  • Vascular diagnostics forophthalmology
  • Microvascular riskstratification for ophthalmology and other special fields of vascular medicine
  • Therapy/ prevention monitoring
