Non-invasive cholesterol measurement with superficial analysis
Heart disease is currently the number one killer in the US. This is in large part due to elevated cholesterol levels, and cholesterol related diseases. Medical systems are moving towards more prevention of this disease, and require accurate cholesterol screening techniques. However, the current techniques remain invasive, time consuming and rather inconvenient for both patient and physician. Therefore, a safe and non-invasive means of determining cholesterol levels is highly sought after, especially for early detection in children under 12 years old. Our team is working to construct a device capable of measuring cholesterol levels via eye-image analysis, a technique that would be non-invasive, convenient, and efficient.
