SUCCESS STORY

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.

Deutscher KI Preis

Awarded with the
German Ai Award 2020

The Westphalia DataLab (WDL) wins the German AI Award 2020. The Westphalia DataLab competed for the German AI Award with the Eye Center at Franziskus Hospital in Münster and the joint DeepEye project.

Testimonial Quote

In the project alliance with Westphalia DataLab and Novartis, we were able to increase the scientific accuracy in a quantum leap by 26% using an AI approach for the predictive need for treatment of retinal patients.
