AI helps detect early signs of glaucoma

Date: 05 May 2020 Tags: IT, Mobile & Computers
  • Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), researchers have developed a quick test to identify which people with glaucoma are at risk of rapid progression to blindness.
  • A new test can detect glaucoma progression 18 months earlier than the current gold standard method. Glaucoma, the leading global cause of irreversible blindness, affects over 60 million people.
  • The test, called DARC (Detection of Apoptosing Retinal Cells), involves injecting into the bloodstream (via the arm) a fluorescent dye that attaches to retinal cells, and illuminates those that are in the process of apoptosis, a form of programmed cell death.
