Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR EARLY DETECTION OF DIABETIC RETINOPATHY USING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE DÉTECTION PRÉCOCE D'UNE RÉTINOPATHIE DIABÉTIQUE À L'AIDE D'UNE TOMOGRAPHIE À COHÉRENCE OPTIQUE (OCT)
Abstract:
(EN) A system for the imaging, processing and evaluation of tissues provides prognostic and diagnostic details regarding diseased tissue. A set of quantitative measures were developed and integrated in an image-base analysis software tool designed for OCT images. The system and methods in this invention is significant because it allows assessing the optical properties and structure morphology differences between normal healthy subjects and diabetic patients with retinopathy up to ETDRS level 35 and without retinopathy.
(FR) L'invention porte sur l'imagerie, le traitement et l'évaluation de tissus, lequel système fournit des détails de pronostic et de diagnostic concernant un tissu malade. Un ensemble de mesures quantitatives ont été développées et intégrées dans un outil logiciel d'analyse à base d'image conçu pour les images OCT. Le système et les procédés de cette invention sont significatifs en raison du fait qu'ils permettent l'évaluation des propriétés optiques et de différences de morphologie de structure entre des sujets sains normaux et des patients diabétiques avec une rétinopathie atteignant un niveau d'ETDRS (Étude de Traitement Précoce de la Rétinopathie Diabétique) de 35 et sans rétinopathie.
