Diabetic Retinopathy Algorithm Validation
Braviithi is an innovation-driven image analysis company that focuses on the detection of diabetic retinopathy. At Braviithi we developed an innovative, automated, diabetic retinopathy diagnostic technology. We have been working on improving and master the product design and development since September 2015 and now we can introduce a completed and finished product which is not hungry on training data sets unlike other machine learning technologies which have voracious appetite for data to be optimized.
We successfully customized our diabetic retinopathy diagnostic technology to analyze and process images from a variety of fundus cameras which have been in the market since 2005, according to color specifications. Our algorithm-based technique expedites the screening time for each image, making it a very effective tool in the decision-support system for diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy. Then, specialists and subject experts can further change the sensitivity of tool tweaking the parameter thresholds in the parameter palette.
Our product-innovation team comprises of subject matter experts trained at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, NY, IIT Chennai, India and Cornell University. We have collaborated with vitreo-retinal surgeons, ophthalmologists and physicians in India to deliver a decision-support tool for timely diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy.
Braviithi’s diabetic retinopathy screening tool will help patients in remote areas, who do not have access to retina specialists for detection of diabetes related degenerative eye diseases. Moreover, our tool enables timely intervention to save the vision of millions of diabetic patients who do not have access to services of retinopathy specialists.
Diabetic Retinopathy Tool
Our diabetic retinopathy tool can also be used to provide a second opinion to retinopathy specialists at the top of the clinical hierarchy, and saves valuable time cater to critical cases and surgeries.
Braviithi’s diabetic retinopathy diagnosis tool has the facility to upload a color Fundus image, to perform image quality assessments, define and change default parameters to cross-check reports. Our tool also boasts of a unique capability to process montages that has not been developed in any other tools yet.
What We Offer
Around 35% of diabetic patients suffered retinopathy, improved diagnostics and therapeutic strategies are needed to help these patients. Our technology facilitates, improves and supports the specialist decision and further referrals to ophthalmologist and diabeticians. Our mission is to accelerate breakthroughs for this approach by helping doctors leverage the retinal images to deepen understanding of disease biology and enhance the diagnostic. Our vision is to create unique patient profiles for an individualized standard of care, where patients experience faster and accurate diagnostics, fewer side effects and live longer.
