Abstract
A continuing clinical need exists to find diagnostic tools that will detect and characterize the extent of retinal abnormalities as early as possible with non-invasive, highly sensitive techniques. The objective of this paper was to demonstrate the utility of a Hyperspectral Fundus Imager and related analytical tools to detect and characterize retinal tissues based on their spectral signatures. In particular, the paper shows that this system can measure spectral differences between normal retinal tissue and clinically significant macular edema. Future work will lead to clinical studies focused on spectrally characterizing retinal tissue, its diseases, and on the detection and tracking of the progression of retinal disease.
