Artificial intelligence in ophthalmology - what, how and when?

25 Apr 2022
Future Practice - Consulting Room

Artificial intelligence (AI) based on deep learning (DL) has seen lots of global interest in recent years. DL has been widely adopted in image recognition, speech recognition and natural language processing, but is only beginning to impact on healthcare. In ophthalmology, AI and DL have been applied to fundus photographs, optical coherence tomography and visual fields, achieving robust classification performance in the detection of diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, macular oedema and age-related macular degeneration. DL in ocular imaging may be used in conjunction with telemedicine as a possible solution to screen, diagnose and monitor major eye diseases for patients in primary care and community settings.
