PhotoniCare Looks Behind Ear Drums to Help Diagnose Ear Infections
PhotoniCare’s TOMi Scope uses near-infrared light waves to provide 3D views beyond the ear drum into the middle ear, allowing physicians to visualize and better diagnose middle ear infections.
Middle ear infections are one of the most common reasons for visits to the pediatrician. However, because the middle ear is hidden from view by the ear drum, physicians must diagnose based on symptoms and a limited physical exam — and when patients have ambiguous or borderline symptoms, accurate diagnosis can be challenging.
