Scientific Research

Monitoring blood flow dynamics can be useful in many research applications.

Examples of clinical and preclinical research conducted by users of our technology include:

Clinical Research on Glaucoma

Researchers have used the XyCAM CRE to investigate ocular blood flow changes associated with glaucoma, a condition where blockage of the aqueous humor outflow leads to significant damage to the optic nerve and retinal ganglion cells.

Oculomics and

Systemic Diseases

Pulsatile XyCAM CRE data on ocular blood flow can be used in oculomics research to gain insights into vascular manifestations of non-ophthalmic health conditions such as diabetes, diabetic retinopathy, cardiovascular risk, and cognitive impairment.

Research on 

Surgical Interventions

Our blood flow monitoring technology has been modularly integrated with a surgical microscope and has demonstrated real-time noninvasive monitoring of blood flow in the field of view before, during, and after surgical interventions.   


Clinical Research on Retinopathy of Prematurity

Researchers have used the XyCAM CRE mounted on an arm to image the eyes of prematurely born infants to assess ocular blood flow changes associated with retinopathy of prematurity, that poses a vision-threatening risk to the neonatal eye.

Basic Physiological and Mechanistic Research

Our blood flow monitoring technology has been used in animal models to assess microvascular blood flow changes in stimulation-related neurophysiology experiments, wound healing angiogenesis experiments, and radiation response experiments.
