Paper Abstract

Oftenly the evaluation of a cornea is made using a Slit Lamp where the aspect of the cells is qualitatively observed, there are elaborated apparels and consequently much more expensive that accomplish a quantitative analysis of the endothelium cells. To overcome the limitations of subjective analysis, manipulation difficulties and high cost, we developed a system coupled to the Slit Lamp (that magnifies 290X the cells) exhibiting the image in a computer monitor and a software dedicated for identification and counting the endothelium cells to at a low cost standardizing the diagnosis for the donated corneas.
