Artificial Intelligence May Be Used to Detect Diabetic Retinopathy

Where can it be useful

These tools, including the diabetic retinal scan technologies, can be useful “in locations with reduced access to care, such as rural communities and developing countries, primary care physicians have used telemedicine to photograph their patients’ retinas and send the images to ophthalmologists in other locales for backup diagnostics” (Mendelsohn). As of right now, this technology is an extremely efficient and productive source of medical information. Even though this technology appears to exceed the expectations of many medical professionals, there is still much to learn about artificial technology in the medical world.
