Earlier detection of diabetic retinopathy possible in childrenScreening programmes could catch diabetic retinopathy in children earlier if they began screening 6 years after diabetes is diagnosed.
Google DeepMind searches for signs of retinopathyGoogle is using its DeepMind computing system to search for early signs of diabetic retinopathy and neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD), the company announced this month.
Year brings advances in retinal imaging, screening, and gene/drug therapiesThe topics of special interest to retina specialists during 2015 include optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and screening for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Important research is taking place to determine the etiology of angiogenesis, possibly leading to targeting therapies in age-related macular degeneration (AMD), ROP, and diabetic retinopathy.
