Fundus Disease Detection
With the rapid aging of the population and the rise of chronic disease in China, more and more people suffer from vision loss and even blindness caused by fundus diseases. Some of the diseases are caused by relatively independent fundus lesions (such as Glaucoma and Age-related Macular Degeneration), and some are caused by whole-body chronic diseases (such as Diabetic Retinopathy, and arteriosclerosis in the fundus).
The morbidity of Diabetic Retinopathy is 8.09%, and glaucoma is 2.12%. Many fundus diseases have no symptom in its early stage, but when the symptom becomes obvious to the patient, the disease is already in a severe stage. Early screening for fundus disease is an effective way to find chronic disease, and monitor its complications, thus prevent patients from vision loss and blindness.
Airdoc leverages the deep-learning technology based on enormous fundus image data labeled by professionals to design a specific deep-learning network for fundus diseases recognition and fundus lesion area detection. By conduct screening in and outside medical institutions, Airdoc fundus disease recognition has become the doctor’s assistant for chronic diseases, and a reliable source of new chronic patients.
