Canon’s EOS Camera Sensors Aid Sophisticated Retina Imaging

Canon has released a new retina-photography imager which aids in taking the backside images of the eye for checking glaucoma, hypertension and other diagnostic conditions.

Canon’s EOS Camera Sensors

A distinct, high-resolution picture is required for the doctors to monitor the actual components of the tissues and blood vessels within a minute area.

The imager used in these retina imaging devices is an EOS 50D camera of the company, which is equipped with a 15.1 megapixel sensing unit that takes images with high-resolution and clarity for exposing the needed information. The EOS imager also features an equilibrated system comprising mirrors, lenses and filters.

The EOS sensor has been ideally modified, eliminating the infrared cut-off filters that present in many camera sensors. This innovative imager is thus capable of performing various retina imaging with its standard infra red inspection mode, color fundus imaging and filtered digital images for cobalt and non-red imaging applications. The sensor is less-capable of taking the images in low-light environments since it lacks the infrared cut-off filter.
