Ophthalmic Imaging Systems has opened an ophthalmic imaging network (OIN) in the California area. The network allows physicians to send images of diabetic patients' retinas to the company's ophthalmic reading centre for analysis by trained readers. OIN is a telemedicine system aimed at providing early prognosis of diabetic retinopathy. An estimated 12 million people suffer from diabetes in the US.
