WHO believes that 80% of all visual impairment caused by DR (Diabetic Retinopathy) can be cured with regular screening and early detection. Follow Cognizant’s journey in developing an AI-based diagnostic tool to speed up identification of DR symptoms.
Major vision loss due to DR is preventable with timely remedial intervention like eye exams (including visual acuity testing, tonometry and pupil dilation) and regular screening at the earlier stages by using a DR diagnostic and grading screening tool.
This process is unfortunately handicapped by lack of trained clinicians, as well as challenges posed by data set availability, fundus image analysis and multiple camera imagery. The screening process is also time-consuming. To combat it, we developed an AI-based DR diagnostic tool to help doctors detect and grade the level of DR disease:
In the future, clinicians will be able to use our DR detection and grading solution as an app with a mobile-attached, hand-held fundus camera to diagnose DR immediately and guide patients toward further treatment.
