Directly from the USA: Machine Learning Can Predict Eyes at Risk for Diabetic Retinopathy Progression

Automated machine learning models may help identify eyes at risk for diabetic retinopathy (DR) progression based on ultra-widefield retinal images, according to a study published online Feb. 8 in JAMA Ophthalmology.

Paolo S. Silva, M.D., from Harvard University in Boston, and colleagues assessed whether automated machine learning models using ultra-widefield retinal images predict DR progression. The analysis included 1,179 deidentified ultra-widefield retinal images with mild or moderate nonproliferative DR (NPDR) with three years of longitudinal follow-up.
