      Voxeleron introduces Orion, advanced optical coherence tomography (OCT) analysis software.

      Voxeleron introduces Orion, advanced optical coherence tomography (OCT) analysis software. Orion is fully-automated soft-ware, rapidly and accurately segmenting seven retinal layers in OCT images. The limited functionality of existing OCT analysis tools has meant that only two or three retinal layers are analyzed, despite the overwhelming evidence for the clinical importance of the inner retinal layers in disease detection and prognosis. Orion address-es exactly this technology gap, providing researchers much needed biomarkers for the early detection and prognosis of ophthalmic and neurological diseases. Orion is device independent, processing data from different OCT vendors. Orion will be featured in two posters ...
