Increasing the Value of Optical Coherence Tomography for
Manufacturers and End-Users

About SDM Innovations

SDM Innovations is developing technology that will significantly increase the utility and value of optical coherence tomography (OCT). The patent‑protected technology and processes innovated by SDMI will increase the scanning speed of today's OCT by a factor of ten without compromising resolution. Increased imaging speed will:

  • Nearly eliminate motion artifacts to improve image clarity to improve diagnosis and care
  • Enable the capture of heretofore unattainable larger images providing greater medical information
  • Reduce patient discomfort and improve clinical throughput
  • Drive product preference for OEMs

 Mission

Develop technology that will significantly increase the utility and value of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for users and driving product preference for manufacturers.

 Technology

Patent-protected (US 2014/0160488 A1, WO 2014/088650 A1) space‑division multiplexing technology and processes increase OCT scanning speed by a factor of ten without compromising resolution.

 Market

Initial use of SDM Innovation's advance in OCT will be for ophthalmic applications.

 Plan

The company plans to complete design enhancements and conduct clinical testing that will clearly demonstrate the value to licensees.

OCT and SDMI Technology

Current Ophthalmic OCT

Using today's most advanced marketed scanners, the fastest routine OCT retinal scan is performed in approximately five seconds using a single scan beam. Eye movements typically occur every 0.5 to 2 seconds.

SDMI Technology: 10x Faster

Patented-technology from SDMI using space‑division multiplexing should be able to perform a routine OCT ophthalmic retinal scan in approximately one‑half of a second without compromising resolution.
