Artificial intelligence in retina

Publication date: Available online 1 August 2018Source: Progress in Retinal and Eye ResearchAuthor(s): Ursula Schmidt-Erfurth, Amir Sadeghipour, Bianca S. Gerendas, Sebastian M. Waldstein, Hrvoje BogunovićAbstractMajor advances in diagnostic technologies are offering unprecedented insight into the condition of the retina and beyond ocular disease. Digital images providing millions of morphological datasets can fast and non-invasively be analyzed in a comprehensive manner using artificial intelligence (AI). Methods based on machine learning (ML) and particularly deep learning (DL) are able to identify, localize and quantify pathological features in almost every macular and retinal disease. Convolutional neural networks thereby mimic the path of the human brain for object recognition through learning of pathological features from training sets, supervised ML, or even extrapolation from patterns recognized independently, unsupervised ML. The methods of AI-based retinal analyses are diverse and differ widely in their applicability, interpretability and reliability in different datasets and diseases. Fully automated AI-based systems have recently been approved for screening of diabetic retinopathy (DR). The overall potential of ML/DL includes screening, diagnostic grading as well as guidance of therapy with automated detection of disease activity, recurrences, quantification of therapeutic effects and identification of relevant targets for novel therapeutic approaches.

(CNN) — Your social media could reveal a lot more about you than you think. Say, for example, whether you have a medical condition. In a new study, researchers were able to predict 21 types of medical conditions — ranging from pregnancy to skin disorders — by analyzing people’s Facebook profiles. Facebook status updates were “particularly effective at predicting diabetes and mental health conditions including anxiety, depression and psychoses,” the study found. The study will be published June 19 in PLOS One, a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published since 2006 “Peop...

BOSTON (CBS) — It’s that time of year: kids are heading off to camp and the American Academy of Pediatrics is updating its recommendations on how to keep kids safe during the summer. First, all campers should have a pre-camp check-up with their pediatrician to address any health issues and update immunizations, whether it’s a day camp or an overnight camp. The AAP also suggested parents communicate directly with camp administrators to discuss any special health concerns, like food safety if a child has food allergies, or how daily medications will be stored and administered for kids who have underlying he...

TYPE 2 diabetes is a common condition caused by the body ’s inability to produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. It is strongly linked to being overweight and poor dietary decisions. Sticking to a low-carb meal plan can help to mitigate the risks associated with the life-long condition.
