Tittle:
A UK company developing an innovative remote sub-skin imaging software is looking for medical research universities or hospitals to conduct clinical trials
Summary:
The UK start-up has developed an innovative software to provide a dermatological imaging service. The software enables patients to take their own medical sub-skin images with their own mobile, tablet or laptop cameras. The company intends to offer Store-and-Forward remote sub-skin imaging service. The company is looking for a medical research university or research hospital to conduct clinical trials to validate its technology, under a technical cooperation, joint venture or service agreement.
Description:
Dermascopes provide only limited view of the immediate skin surface - under the right conditions. They also must be used in direct contact with the patient´s skin which limits their use to patients in the same physical location as the clinician conducting the examination.

The UK start-up is developing a software that, thanks to the in-house created algorithm, provide a Remote Diagnostic Imaging (RDI) service. The software enables patients to take their own medical sub-skin images with their own mobile, tablet or laptop cameras and forward it to the doctors. This results in a Store-and-Forward (SAF) service which allows both doctors and patients to save time and money, providing a more accurate diagnosis.
The platform has not been deployed for commercial usage yet. The company is currently looking for a medical research university or research hospital to conduct clinical trials on different skin-types to validate its technology. The company is willing to start a collaboration under a technical cooperation, joint venture or service agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
The main advantages of the innovation are:
-It enables to provide a more precise diagnosis since it observes sub-skin signs of skin issues, prior to presenting on the skin surface;
- It supports telemedicine services as the first true sub-skin imaging modality compatible with telemedicine services ;
- It enables to keep sub-skin historical comparison for skin diseases;
- It allows patients to self-monitor the effectiveness of skin treatment;
- It saves time and cost to both patients and doctors, through the function Store-and-Forward, avoiding unnecessary face-to-face visits.
