‘Deep learning’ potential breakthrough in diabetic retinopathy management

‘Deep learning’ potential breakthrough in diabetic retinopathy management
May 16, 2017

IBM Research announced a technological advance that uses “deep learning” to achieve the highest-ever recorded accuracy using pathology-driven analysis for identifying diabetic retinopathy severity, based on an international, clinical diabetic retinopathy scale that determines severity in about 20 seconds.

The technology may create new levels of efficiency, helping practitioners screen a greater number of patients with diabetes, and more quickly refer those who need specialist care, according to IBM.
