Abstract:

"Non-Invasive Ocular Toxicity Assessment Instrumentation (NOTAI) is an automated diagnostic approach to medical testing and treatment that merges decades of ocular research into a single machine, bringing the expertise of the ophthalmologist to anylocations. The development of this technology will usher in a new age of treatment, reducing time, safety, and the expense normally associated with a blood test or other invasive testing protocol. These instruments, in a variety of simplified forms, canbe developed to look for specific conditional anomalies, or in a more complex form, NOTAI instruments can be used to detect and diagnose a broad range of health affecting conditions, including those associated with neurotoxins or other chemical agents.The invention will most likely exist as a stable diagnostic unit similar to a setup found in ophthalmology. The sensor element would preferably exist as a digital camera, but the options of video CCD cameras, CMOS devices, simple arrays ofphoto-detectors, film, or others also apply. The sensor element can be selected to be sensitive to target portions of the light spectrum and should provide adequate to the task. Filters can be utilized to further vary light spectrum selectivity. A meansfor analyzing images would preferably exist as a computer, but could also including custom designed circuits for smaller, more portable, versions of the technology. Instruments, in a variety of simplified f
