PhotoniCare has developed a handheld OCT imager for physicians diagnosing middle ear infections. The ClearView device [OtoSight Middle Ear Scope] produces 3D cross-sectional images of the middle ear, alongside video of the surface of the eardrum.
Peer-reviewed studies show that the same handheld OCT technology can be used to image other areas such as the anterior and posterior segments of the eye, the skin and the oral cavity.
The company was founded out of Dr Stephen Boppart’s bioengineering research lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). PhotoniCare continues its relationship with UIUC as an EnterpriseWorks incubator company.
