Diabetic Retinopathy Identification Software for Timely Intervention

Brief Description

Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is the damage caused to retina by complications of diabetes which can eventually lead to blindness. Presently the ratio of ophthalmologist to general population is 1 : 80,000 which makes it nearly impossible to implement screening programs manually with human expertise alone. DRISTI, using quantitative image analysis algorithms, analyses retinal fundus images for DR lesions and directs DR suspicious cases for detailed ophthalmologist review. DR negative cases are screened out without ophthalmologist intervention.
