Heidelberg Engineering has partnered with charity Orbis to fund training of eye care professionals and research into retinoblastoma.
Heidelberg Engineering Academy will contribute to Orbis’ educational platform, Cybersight, with webinars on topics such as optical coherence tomography and non-invasive imaging testing.
The research project into retinoblastoma will use Cybersight to investigate the impact of artificial intelligence on worldwide retinoblastoma care, as well as exploring how treatment, outcomes and disease-specific knowledge continues to change over time.
Arianna Schoess-Vargas, managing director of Heidelberg Engineering GmbH, said: ‘Scientific research and clinical education play a large part in fostering the diagnostic confidence that has become synonymous with our global brand. This new partnership with Orbis will make valuable knowledge accessible to thousands of eye care professionals and contribute to meaningful scientific research that will not only save sight but will save lives.’
