The goal of the RetinOpTIC project is to design a global solution for automated massive screening of retinal disease.

  • A portable fundus camera designed as part of this project will allow images to be acquired.
  • An algorithm based on neuronal network technology will classify images in relation to each patient’s context. It will learn from the database that was built by APHP over several years.
  • A Cloud platform will integrate the complete solution to offer a worldwide SaaS service, in compliance with current regulations (health data hosting, CE MD, FDA).

Clinical studies are planned to qualify the solution’s effectiveness.
