IDx’s Research and Development process involves deep collaboration with physicians to develop unique solutions based on:
1) Foundational Medical Knowledge
2) Standards of Care in Medicine
IDx starts by identifying high impact diseases with established medical practice patterns. We study how the standard of care has developed over time, and work with the clinicians and scientists who developed these standards to understand their work.
This rich understanding of pathology helps our own team of physicians and technologists judiciously choose data we use in developing and validating our deep learning algorithms.
IDx is developing algorithms to detect and track a range of glaucoma indicators. With the wealth of data available in optical coherence tomography (OCT) images, IDx’s advanced layer segmentation algorithms are only the first step toward building the next generation of clinical tools, such as implied visual field measurements.
IDx is developing algorithms to detect signs of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) from standard retina images.
