DRIVE Study

This study found that zero-dilation cSLO imaging had greater sensitivity for detection of DR lesion characteristics than traditional fundus imaging, with equivalent specificity. Imaging with the zero-dilation cSLO device can be performed relatively quickly and has the potential to improve efficiency and reduce appointment times for many patients, thereby improving patient care. Elimination of mydriasis […]
