“Readers have found that learning to use the software and performing the manual adjustments to centration and segmentation of the various retinal layers has been straightforward. They are excited to be able to load, review and analyze all OCT images in one platform, rather that constantly having to switch between software programs as they do their work. We are already seeing an improvement in efficiency along with the enhanced accuracy of the analytics.”

“We have used Orion regularly for our research work at the Jacobs Retina Center, Shiley Eye Institute, University of California San Diego. We have found it easy to use, quick and reliable for analyzing retinal and subretinal structure. Recently, for a comparative study, we performed retinal segmentation using images of normal and diseased eyes. Using Orion, we performed a qualitative and quantitative assessment (layer volume measurement) of the retinal layer segmentations. The study found that Orion compared well against manual segmentation and proprietary software. As a reliable cross platform tool, it overcomes some of the main limitations associated with proprietary software of analyzing images acquired by other devices. Finally, Voxeleron provided excellent support during the course of our studies, by quickly replying to issues regarding their software thus avoiding any delay with our ongoing research work.”

“In pathology cases I do have to sometimes edit the segmentation boundaries, but with Orion it takes me an hour whereas with the device software it takes me all day!”

“Analyzing all scans with the same software is especially important for us. [Orion] considerably eases our reading workflow. We are very glad that Voxeleron has provided us with this solution and hope it will support new and useful findings.”
Dr. Alexander Brandt, M.D., the head of the Neurodiagnostics Laboratory at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
“The Orion software was able to provide consistent and accurate segmentation of retinal layers and in addition a whole toolbox of added options to interpret and measure retinal parameters. We used the software extensively on patients with epiretinal membranes and macular holes, which are notoriously difficult for automatic analysis, with excellent results. This software was invaluable to our work as some features are simply unavailable anywhere else.
We also would like to note the excellent support with prompt replies to all our questions.”

“The software has greatly sped up our research workflow, especially the new intelligent correction feature. The team at Voxeleron are great to work with and always ready to discuss potential future projects.”

“The Orion software is wonderful for our own OCT instrumentation and we’re preparing our first manuscript using it. Having the ability to do quantitative analysis is extremely beneficial to our clinical research.”

“I find Orion to be a very useful tool for segmenting both human and non-human primate scans. The speed, accuracy, and ability to process scans from different instruments is valuable, and the tools provided in the software are very user friendly.”
Nimesh Patel, O.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor at the University of Houston.
“We used Orion to process a considerable amount of data and found it to be a very useful research tool. The analysis tools that come with some of the OCT devices do not offer the functionality we need to do some of our fundamental clinical research, so Orion is a very powerful adjunct offering.”

“Based on an early study of their results, I was encouraged to see the Voxeleron algorithm accurately segment layers on scans where a commercially available algorithm had failed. With the added ability to segment more retinal layers, I am interested in looking at new parameters for disease. We looked at numerous eyes and saw consistent results, and we plan to publish our findings.”
