Clinical research with the rtx1 AO camera

Age-related macular degeneration

Publications report that the rtx1 showed AMD-related retinal changes in higher details than conventional imaging. Notably, the border of geographic atrophy appeared sharper, and its progression could be detected over timescales as short as 3 weeks. Read more in the summary.

Inherited retinal diseases

A wide array of inherited retinal diseases has been investigated with the rtx1. In all of them, AO images revealed microscopic retinal changes, including alterations of the cone cell mosaic. Longitudinal studies have also been reported, showing that the rtx1 can be a sensitive tool to evaluate IRD progression.

Diabetes and diabetic retinopathy

In several clinical studies, the rtx1 revealed multiple microscopic abnormalities in the retinas of diabetic patients, even in eyes without diagnosed retinopathy. Read more in the summary.

Arterial hypertension

Clinical findings with the rtx1 in hypertensive patients revealed modifications in the wall structure of retinal arterioles. Such alterations were correlated with microvascular changes in other parts of the body. Read more in the summary.

Webinar on March 29

3 clinical experts will discuss the use of rtx1 AO camera for microvascular assessments, in various diseases including hypertension and diabetes
