CORC is a certified ISO9001 Reading Centre that focus its activities in grading of ophthalmic exams for characterization and quantification of ophthalmic disease, mainly of the posterior segment/retinal diseases. CORC acts as Reading Centre for a series of multinational/multicentric clinical studies, mainly in Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) and Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).

CORC is staffed by a Director and Sub-Director, a Management Team involving Project Managers, Grading Supervisors and Administrative Coordinator, a Grading Team of 27 graders (16 medical, 5 orthoptists and 6 technical graders) and a Secretariat Team.

CCORC has a secure custom-designed web based tool to transmit images between Clinical Sites and CORC. This system is hosted in the AIBILI´s Data Centre. For grading CORC uses licensed software from the equipment suppliers. CORC has novel in-house developed software to assess microaneurysm turnover in DR (RetmarkerDR®), classify and quantify AMD lesions (RetmarkerAMD) and perform segmentation of the retinal layers on OCT.
