As part of STARTUP WEEK, learn more about Ryan Shelton’s startup journey with Photonicare, a company that developed the Otosight, a first-in-class, FDA-cleared tool to directly visualize the middle ear without surgery that enables pediatric, family medicine, and urgent care clinicians to immediately and accurately visualize the presence of fluid in the middle ear and characterize that fluid.
