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

First rtx1 retinal camera installation in Australia

Perth, WA, Australia and Orsay, France, July 11th, 2014. For the first time in Australia, Imagine Eyes installed an rtx1 Adaptive Optics Retinal Camera at the Lions Eye Institute in Perth (WA). Associate Professor Fred Chen at the institute’s Retinal Imaging Clinic decided to acquire the rtx1 in early 2014, soon after the device received the ARTG clearance. The rtx1 now enables performing retinal examinations at cellular and microvascular levels in a wide variety of patients at the Lions Eye Institute.
