Auria determines the concentration of two proteins from your tear sample. These two proteins are part of the early inflammatory process and could be elevated due to malignancy but can also be elevated due to benign masses. These concentrations are used, together with age, in our proprietary algorithm to calculate your AURIA SCORE.
The AURIA SCALE was developed using the scores from over 1000 clinical samples. The classifications of low, medium, and high were developed based on retrospective clinical analysis of follow-up imaging. Early data suggests scores in the medium or high category are associated with increased molecular events in the host tissue and should be evaluated by follow-up imaging in a timely manner.
