Optos is partnering with the University of Glasgow to advance its ophthalmic imaging.
The medical technology company’s current ultra-widefield, high resolution digital imaging technology (optomaps) provides a single image of up to 82 per cent of the retina, something the company claims no other device is capable of doing.
The collaborative project between the University’s specialist Imaging Concepts Group and Optos’ Research department will investigate, explore and propose new techniques to further mitigate aberrations that may exist in this technically demanding process.
The objective is “to propose a workable, human-ready solution which Optos can take forward in its own research and development”, according to a joint statement.
CENSIS – a UK centre of excellence for Sensor and Imaging Systems technologies has contributed £50,000 to the joint project.
