Image Analysis and Machine Learning Platform for Innovation in Diabetic Retinopathy Screening
The North of Portugal Health Administration is implementing a mass screening for diabetic retinopathy (DR). The goal is to perform an eye exam on about 75% of identified diabetics. The goal of the SCREEN-DR consortium is to create a distributed and automatic screening platform for DR, based on PACS management, Machine Learning and Image Analysis, enabling an immediate response from health carers, allowing accurate follow-up strategies, and fostering technological innovation. The main objectives are: automatically assessing image quality, automatically detecting and grading diabetic retinopathy, which can be mild non-proliferative, moderate/severe non-proliferative and proliferative.
