First implementation of rtx1 in psychiatric research

Feb 16th, 2016. An rtx1 Adaptive Optics Retinal Camera was for the first time implemented for use in psychiatric research at the « La Timone » Hospital in Marseille, France. The rtx1 unit was installed by Imagine Eyes’ partner PEMOA-Optitec at the hospital’s ophthalmology department led by Professor Louis Hoffart.  The system is now used in a 6-month study carried out by Dr. Matonti on « multimodal imaging analysis in a population suffering from psychiatric troubles including schizophrenia”.

New imaging system analyzes retinal blood flow and microcirculation at Grenoble’s University Hospital

Grenoble and Orsay, France, and Lausanne, Switzerland, March 6, 2015. A new retinal imaging system was jointly built by the Opto-Electronic Group at HES-SO//Valais (Sion, Switzerland) and Imagine Eyes (Orsay, France) to analyze blood flow in retinal vessels. This device for the first time enables assessing wall thickness and internal diameter in small vessels, as well as blood velocity. To make it possible, researchers and engineers have worked together to combine the laser Doppler velocimetry technique developed by Prof Martial Geiser’s team at HES-SO with Imagine Eyes’ high-resolution adaptive optics imaging technology.

This project has received significant funding from Novartis Pharma, France, as a part of the group’s continuing support to ophthalmological research. Read more
