RETINA-AI has developed and released the first artificial intelligence mobile app for eye care providers. The app, called Fluid Intelligence by RETINA-AI, detects macular edema and subretinal fluid on OCT retinal scans with greater than 90% accuracy, according to a company news release.
Fluid Intelligence by RETINA-AI will help eye care professionals by guiding specialized retina care at the click of a button. For instance, if an optometrist has a patient in clinic who has macular degeneration, and is unsure if it is actively wet or not, the optometrist can take a picture of the OCT retinal scan and receive an assessment as to whether that patient urgently needs an eye injection. To provide this clinical assessment, Fluid Intelligence by RETINA-AI uses expertly-designed machine learning AI algorithms running in the Cloud.
There are currently less than 3,000 retinal specialists in the US and even much less than that per capita in most other countries of the world. Given the scarcity of retina specialists, it is important to have guidance on which cases are most urgently in need of referral, according to RETINA-AI.
RETINA-AI’s Founder, CEO, and Chief Software Architect, Dr. Stephen G. Odaibo is a retina specialist and board-certified ophthalmologist, and has advanced degrees in both mathematics and computer science. He says that Fluid Intelligence by RETINA-AI has broken ground by showing how AI can enhance access to eye-care. “We are proud to be the very first in eye care in the world to bring the power of AI to mobile devices in the clinic. Our overall goal is to increase access to high quality specialized retina care around the world.”
