Using AI to detect diabetic eye disease


Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a serious eye condition that can cause vision loss or even blindness. It affects about one in three people with diabetes. CSR researchers have just finished trialling a world-first, artificial intelligence-driven technology that enables GPs to scan people for DR. This technology detected signs of DR as effectively as the ophthalmologist. It could reduce unnecessary referrals, potentially reduce waiting periods for patients, and help ophthalmologists focus on patients who need treatment and surgery.
