CORC is a certified ISO 9001 Reading Center that focus its activities in grading fundus images and OCT images of the retina, as well as functional evaluations of the retina using mfERG. It serves as Reading Center for a series of clinical trials, mainly in Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) and Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
CORC is staffed by a Director, a Management Team involving Project Managers, Grading Supervisors and Administrative Coordinator, a Grading Team of 22 graders (12 medical, 4 orthoptists and 6 technical graders) and a Secretariat Team.
CORC has a secure custom-designed web based tool to transmit images between Clinical Sites and CORC.
For grading, CORC uses licensed software from the equipment suppliers. For research, CORC has novel in-house developed software to quantify neovascularization and leakage, assess microaneurysms in DR, classify and quantify AMD lesions and perform segmentation of the retinal layers and quantify cysts on OCT.
