Better evaluation of retinal scans with AI

Dear Sir or Madam,

Retinal diseases are becoming more and more common, the number of people affected is increasing much faster than the number of trained ophthalmologists. In order to be able to perform more retinal scans, scientists at Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT are developing an artificial intelligence to provide comprehensible diagnoses and treatment suggestions. Find out more about the current state of research in our News.

Enjoy reading,
