News conference features four studies presented at ARVO 2019

Innovative approaches to ocular biology and technology allow for more efficient diagnosis and monitoring

The 2019 ARVO News Conference will be held on Tuesday, April 30, from 9 – 10am PT (ET - 12noon) in West 118 during the ARVO Annual Meeting in Vancouver, BC. The News Conference will highlight how the use of innovative artificial intelligence technology and sophisticated biological markers may help to more efficiently diagnose and monitor eye diseases, potentially saving sight for millions of people around the world.

The new findings demonstrate the impact of technology, including artificial intelligence, on vision science:

  • Deep learning system used to screen eye for signs of diabetes 
  • New imaging approach to diabetic retinopathy screening can lead to early diagnosis
  • Deep learning accurately predicts OCT measurements of diabetic macular thickening using color fundus photographs
  • AI-based method created to determine volume-related characteristics in AMD

The session will be moderated by ARVO President Steve J. Fliesler, PhD, FARVO and ARVO Executive Vice President Justine R. Smith, FRANZCO, PhD, FARVO.
