The American Association of Diabetes Educators Annual Meeting and Exhibition, which took place at the San Diego Convention Center from August 12 to 14, featured digital imaging systems from Canon U.S.A.

One of the technologies on display was the Canon teleretinal imaging solution, which includes the Canon CR-2 Plus AF digital non-mydriatic retinal camera and imageSpectrum Image Management System software. Within the Windows 7 environment, clinicians can use the software to quickly transmit images to physicians in the United States and abroad to help with diagnoses.

Conference attendees were also exposed to the system’s camera, which includes a noninvasive Fundus Autofluorescence imaging mode that lets users assess the condition of the retinal pigment epithelium layer quickly. Additionally, users will have access to the new opacity suppression selectable filter tool, which helps subdue the effect of an image’s ocular opacities and enhance the clarity of blood vessels, thus aiding in the detection of potential illnesses that may have previously not been seen.
