    Neurodegenerative Disease Diagnostic Method Is Superior to Human-Led Approaches

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A combination of OCT, adaptive optics, and neural networks has the potential to enable better diagnosis and monitoring for eye and brain diseases, such as glaucoma, that damage neurons. The combination is part of an AI-drive process developed by biomedical engineers at Duke University as leaders of a multi-institution consortium that can easily and precisely track the number and shape of retinal ganglion cells in the eye.

    Ganglion cells are one of the primary neurons in the eye that process and send visual information to the brain. In many neurodegenerative diseases, such as glaucoma, ganglion cells degenerate and disappear, which causes irreversible blindness. OCT is a light-based imaging technology that can image beneath layers of…
