Artificial Intelligence Passes Macular Degeneration Test


AMD is a common retinal pathology where patients are not aware until
vision gets compromised. With less no of retinal specialist, it’s a difficult
job to screen every one in early stages. But with the help of artificial
intelligence even general practitioners can detect it. Recently
iHealthScreen has developed a new artificial intelligence system, iPredict
for screening patients with AMD. Its showing promising results in
clinical trials. Alauddin and colleagues has used AREDS dataset to
determine the accuracy, weather its comparable to human retina
specialist.
"We are delighted to say that the tool is now ready for clinical use and
potential remote telemedical deployment," said Sharmina Alauddin,
MBBS, from New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai Hospital
in New York City.
