Automated assessment of retinal images in an outreach clinic in Uganda

Using the RetinaLyze algorithm in outreach clinics

We saw 49 patients at our outreach diabetic retinal screening clinic in Kampala, Uganda referring 16 for a range of eye conditions. We had the opportunity to use a number of portable screening devices including portable fundus imaging systems (Horuscope, PEEK Retina and the Arclight direct ophthalmoscope) as well as the RetinaLyze automatic retinal image assessment system.

The RetinaLyze web application was used in conjunction with the MiiS Horus Fundus camera to automatically analyze the posterior segment of the eye for diabetes related retinal changes.
