HOUSTON, July 17, 2018— RETINA-AI has developed and released the first Artificial Intelligence mobile app for eye-care providers. This app — Fluid Intelligence by RETINA-AI — detects macula edema and sub-retinal fluid on O.C.T retinal scans with greater than ninety percent accuracy.
Both macula edema and sub-retinal fluid are key disease features that may indicate the presence of any number of retinal diseases including: diabetic macula edema, exudative macular degeneration, cystoid macula edema after cataract surgery, retinal vein occlusion macula edema, central serous chorioretinopathy, uveitic macula edema, and macula-off retinal detachments. Fluid Intelligence by RETINA-AI is therefore an excellent screening tool for any one of these diseases.
Fluid Intelligence by RETINA-AI will help eye-care professionals by guiding specialized retina care at the click of a button. For instance, if an optometrist has a patient in clinic who has macula degeneration, and is unsure if it is actively-wet or not, the optometrist can take a picture of the O.C.T. retinal scan and receive an assessment as to whether that patient urgently needs an eye injection. To provide this clinical assessment, Fluid Intelligence by RETINA-AI uses expertly-designed Machine Learning A.I. algorithms running in the Cloud.
There are currently less than 3000 retinal specialists in the U.S. and even much less than that per capita in most other countries of the world. Given the scarcity of retina specialists, it is important to have guidance on which cases are most urgently in need of referral.
RETINA-AI’s Founder, CEO, and Chief Software Architect, Dr. Stephen G. Odaibo is himself a retina specialist and board-certified ophthalmologist. In addition, he is the only ophthalmologist in the world with advanced degrees in both mathematics and computer science. He says that Fluid Intelligence by RETINA-AI has broken ground by showing how A.I. can enhance access to eye-care. “We are proud to be the very first in eye-care in the world to bring the power of A.I. to mobile devices in the clinic. Our overall goal is to increase access to high quality specialized retina care around the world.”
