Fully Automated Diagnostic Device Receives CE Certification; IDx LLC Planning For Rollout Across Europe
Date:5/6/2013

Dr. Michael Abramoff

"It means one less doctor's visit for patients with diabetes, who will now be able to have screening done at their primary care or optometrist's office.  It means a new source of revenue for the practitioners providing these screenings – which we think is going to drive adoption.  And for the health care system as a whole, there are going to be tremendous cost savings associated with better screening compliance, increased early detection, and more efficient deployment of medical specialists."

IDx-DR represents the first in a series of diagnostic algorithms that IDx believes will ultimately transfer eye-related disease screening from the offices of ophthalmologists to patients' medical homes – whether those be family doctors or retail health clinics. 

"The back of the eye is very much a 'window' into human health," explained Dr. Abramoff.  "Retinal images allow doctors literally to peek inside the body, where blood vessels and nerve tissue provide a wealth of data about a patient's physical health status."  Some of this information can be used to diagnose eye diseases, like retinopathy, macular degeneration and glaucoma, but fundus photos can also be used to determine which patients are at an increased risk for stroke and heart attack.

"The appearance of retinal veins and arteries are real-time health indicators that can all be measured rapidly, painlessly, and non-invasively, using advanced algorithms. IDx-DR is the first in a series of diagnostic algorithms this company is developing." 

Software for these diagnostic technologies will be based on a series of exclusively licensed patents held by the University of Iowa, where the company's two principal founders, Dr. Michael Abramoff and Dr. James Folk , both retina specialists, hold clinical and academic appointments.
