Artificial Intelligence (AI) in ophthalmic diagnostics

Professor Francesca M. Cordeiro co-authored a publication presenting a fully automated algorithm which, based on OCT images, can detect and quantify all six features of macular atrophy in wet AMD – namely: interrupted outer retina, interrupted retinal pigment epithelium, absence of outer retina, absence of retinal pigment epithelium, hypertransmission < 250um, and hypertransmission ≥ 250um. The model’s output was compared to manual annotation showing good performance. This work is promising for early detection and for monitoring the progression of macular atrophy in wet AMD.
