      High-Quality Imaging Brings Vision to Researchers and Patients

      The Beginning Macular degeneration is a disease that afflicts 11 million patients in the United States and is estimated to cost the global economy more than $300B annually. The first generation of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) was introduced to visualize retinal pathology and was finding a role in the monitoring treatments for age-related macular degeneration (AMD). This first-generation imaging technology suffered from low resolution and low speed. Joseph Izatt, Bioptigen’s scientific co-founder, recognized the value in a new implementation of OCT—Spectral Domain OCT—that operated up to 1000 times faster and had the potential for visualizing structures of ...
