AI against Age-related macular degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that occurs frequently in old age, with over 25 million people worldwide, and which severely affects the eyesight of those affected. The eye center at the St. Franziskus Hospital in Münster is a renowned contact point for people with AMD and is constantly looking for ways to improve the diagnostic and treatment methods used.
With the help of so-called convolutional neural networks – a type of neural network that is frequently used in image recognition – various models relating to the diagnosis and treatment of AMD were created. The documentation of the cases treated over the years was used to learn the neural networks. In addition to the OCT examinations of the retina including metadata, this also includes information from other examinations, medication prescriptions and patient master data, such as age and gender.
The trained models can predict the various AMD cases with an accuracy of up to 90%. Used as diagnostic assistance, the developed models have the potential to relieve medical staff in everyday clinical practice, to support them in choosing a suitable treatment and thus to minimize wrong decisions.
