CANON OPACITY SUPPRESSION
When obtaining retinal images, ocular opacities can cause several problems; the scattering of the light will make the edges of the blood vessels appear blurred , the difference in brightness of the retina will be reduced, making it very difficult to distinguish between structures. Furthermore a cataract eye will cause images to appear to be more yellow. Canon opacity suppression tool is a unique and sophisticated software tool, that based on the full information from the CMOS sensor of the digital camera, will largely suppress the effect of ocular opacities on color images.
With Canon Opacity Suppression (COS) the effect of ocular opacities will be largely suppressed : previously unsuitable images could now provide you with essential clinical information
OPACITY SUPPRESSION – WHAT IS IT?
Canon Opacity Suppression is using a sophisticated software algorithm, that uses the full raw information from the CMOS sensor of the unique digital camera, the EOS Retina, to analyze the retinal image. The software will make the blood vessels appear much clearer again and the overall original brightness of the retina will be restored . Additionally any change in retinal colour will be compensated .
COS will create an additional image- original image always remains!
Without COS, pathology could potentially go unnoticed. Previously unsuitable images could now provide you with essential clinical information!
Canon opacity suppression is a revolution in retinal imaging!
