Lickenbrock Technologies Releases Fundus View Software

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) -  Lickenbrock Technologies (www.lickenbrock.com) announced today the release of its first commercial product, Fundus View™. Fundus View is the first release in the Fundus View family of products, and provides an easy-to-use interface that allows investigators to enhance digital fundus photographs to more clearly visualize retinal features, including the retinal vasculature in both normal and pathological conditions, and other pathological features such as retinal detachments and drusen.

Fundus View can be used to process color images from a standard fundus camera, as well as monochrome for flourescein angiography and indocyanin green (ICG) angiography. Fundus View can also be used to process images from scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) systems as well as other laser-based fundus imagers.

Fundus View is currently an investigational tool, and is not intended to be used as a primary diagnostic tool. The intended user groups include:

  • Practitioners that obtain fundus images on a routine basis for documentation purposes. Fundus View can enhance poor quality images so that re-imaging is not necessary.
  • Practitioners with research interests that present on a regular basis at meetings. Fundus View can enhance details for clearer visualization for discussion purposes, including patient education.
  • Researchers operating in a medical center environment. Fundus View can improve image quality in situations such as Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) where it is difficult to obtain high-quality images. Fundus View can also provide enhancement of images to provide ancillary information in clinical research cases. Additionally the FV processing tools can be used for images obtained both in vivo and in vitro in pre-clinical models such as retinal flat mounts.

Fundus View features include:

  • Intuitive point and click user interface
  • Deconvolution
  • Shading correction
  • Advanced automated contrast enhancement
  • Cup to disc ratio measurement
  • View color planes
  • Image history

Fundus View is available for purchase via a secure internet connection through the Lickenbrock Technologies website (www.lickenbrock.com) for $295. For additional information contact sales@lickenbrocktech.com.
