  • Simple user interface
  • Seamlessly integrates into your workflow

The Problem: Every Year, Over 60,000 People Go Blind from Diabetic Retinopathy

How IDx-DR Works


Using a fundus camera, the trained operator captures two images per eye


The images are submitted to IDx-DR


IDx-DR analyzes images for signs of diabetic retinopathy, providing results in less than 30 seconds


No disease detected: Retest in 12 Months


Disease detected: Refer to an eye care professional

AI the Right Way

Digital Diagnostics’ Approach to AI Diagnostics

IDx-DR was modeled to think like a physician and make decisions based on the same clinical disease detectors that eye care specialists would use.

  • Ethical diagnostic automation
  • Instantaneous diagnostic results
  • Infinitely scalable

High Performance in a
Real-World Clinical Setting


In the pivotal clinical trial, IDx-DR referred 100% of patients with at least moderate NPDR* and needed after 28/29** patients with diabetic macular edema.

*Moderate NPDR defines by ETDRS as level 43 and higher.

**28/29 with clinically significant diabetic macular edema as determined by fundus photography


In our pivotal clinical trial, IDx-DR avoided 91% of unnecessary specialty visits by capturing a negative result at the point-of-care.
