In March, the IDx inventors were awarded the first-of-its-kind U.S. patent for an algorithm to automatically determine an arteriolar-to-venular diameter ratio (AVR) in blood vessels.

Primary Care Optometry News spoke with Michael D. Abramoff, MD, PhD, who oversees the IDx leadership team and is a fellowship-trained retina specialist with a PhD in image analysis and the Robert C. Watzke Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
