Artificial intelligence can accurately detect diabetic eye

Previously after investigating only we can say that a particular person is a diabetic or not, but now the technology has changed its vision,  AI screening system capable of accurately discovering diabetic retinopathy 95.5 per cent of the times by researchers.

Sometimes, tiny bulges protrude from the blood vessels, leaking fluid and blood into the retina where High blood sugar can damage tiny blood vessels at the back of the eye. AI screening system is capable of accurately discovering diabetic retinopathy 95.5 per cent of the times is a new advancement in science by researchers.

Scientists presented Diabetic retinopathy can develop over time in people with diabetes, especially when they have poor control over their blood sugar levels. It causes swelling with the fluid provided or edema in an area of the retina that allows us to see clearly. At first, diabetic retinopathy may cause no symptoms or only mild vision problems. Eventually, it can cause blindness.

EyeArt is a system has shown promise in earlier studies. It was used to screen 893 patients with diabetes at 15 different medical locations and its sensitivity was 95.5 per cent, and specificity was 86 per cent.

EyeArt system has detected more than 90 per cent of the eyes identified as positive had diabetic retinopathy or another eye disease per the reference standard.

Artificial Intelligence means identifying those at risk of blindness and getting them in front of an ophthalmologist for treatment before it is too late,” said Srinivas Sadda, MD of the Doheny Eye Institute/UCLA.
