eyeMITRA: Feature revealing computational retinal imaging and predictive analysis

Year 2013
Project team Ramesh Raskar with Amy Canham, Everett Lawson, and Karin Roesch

Retinal imaging

Early detection of diabetic retinopathy allows treatment that can prevent blindness. The high cost of retinal imaging devices and the expertise required to use them makes early detection unavailable to millions around the world. The eyeMITRA technology being developed by this project will bring retinal exams into the realm of routine care at a fraction of the current cost. (Renewal from Fall 2012 grant round).
