Conclusion: The proposed simulator can be used to perform credible ISCT in realistic insulin treatment scenarios. Significance: The T1D patient decision simulator can be used to reliably assess novel insulin treatmen- s, e.g., based on use of CGM only, in a realistic multiple-day scenario.
People with diabetes mellitus need annual screening to check for the development of diabetic retinopathy (DR). Tracking small retinal changes due to early diabetic retinopathy lesions in longitudinal fundus image sets is challenging due to intra- and intervisit variability in illumination and image quality, the required high registration accuracy, and the subtle appearance of retinal lesions compared to other retinal features. This paper presents a robust and flexible approach for automated detection of longitudinal retinal changes due to small red lesions by exploiting normalized fundus images that significantly reduce il...
