A handheld probe has been developed by researchers at Duke University for imaging photoreceptors in infants in order to aide physicians in diagnosing eye diseases as well as early detection of brain-related trauma and disease. The probe, named HAOSLO, weighs less than a pound and can take high resolution images even in moving patients, such as infants and children. Traditional imaging methods used large heavy equipment that required the patient to sit upright and stare at an area for several minutes.

A new hand-held ophthalmology instrument allows imaging of photoreceptors in the eyes of young children. It could help to improve the diagnosis of eye diseases and eventually find use in early detection of brain-related diseases and trauma.
