Leukocoria is an abnormal white reflection from the retina of the eye. It primarily affects infants and children under the age of 15. Leukocoria is often a sign of retinoblastoma, a malignant retinal tumor which results in children losing their eyes. This is a serious problem plaguing third world countries who do not have access to healthcare/technology to aid in the detection of leukocoria.The challenge - "Device a low cost/efficient mechanism to detect leukocoria."
An Android based mobile application which uses the camera on a smartphone (for ambient light) to detect leukocoria. It is worthwhile to note that on this assignment we worked with doctors at the Kellogg Eye Center - University of Michigan to device an efficient mechanism to detect leukocoria.
