Short Description of IDx-DR
IDx-DR is a software device, consisting of a server connected to the internet and a software client that can automatically determine whether patients with diabetes have referable retinopathy. The output helps decide whether that patient needs referral to an eye care provider. In cases where the IDx-DR test provides no result the patient should always be referred. To make this determination, IDx-DR analyzes the patient’s fundus photographs. It is a reusable, non-invasive, non-implantable, non-contact device.
