Optical Coherence Tomography: Redesign
Once it was clear that the blood flow detection technique worked, it needed to be incorporated into the client’s clinical software.
Unfortunately, the existing software was already well into “legacy” stage and it would have been nearly impossible to add blood flow visualisation to it.
This was taken as an opportunity to redesign the software from the top down, and provide it with a modern and friendly user interface.
Working with the client’s offshore development team, we specified the new software’s requirements, and a new user interface was mocked up.
During development, we wrote the image processing, visualisation “engines” and a smart frame store, while the offshore team wrote the user interface and database access.
We continued work on software for research customers, using the visualisation engines, while the medical product was developed.
The offshore team also provided the extensive testing and documentation required to gain CE and FDA approval for this medical product.
