      AI Spots Individual Neurons in the Eye Better than Human Expert

      Deep learning-based algorithm can potentially improve diagnosis of eye and brain diseases A new combination of optical coherence tomography (OCT), adaptive optics and deep neural networks should enable better diagnosis and monitoring for neuron-damaging eye and brain diseases like glaucoma. Biomedical engineers at Duke University led a multi-institution consortium to develop the process, which easily and precisely tracks changes in the number and shape of retinal ganglion cells in the eye. This work appears in a paper published on May 3 in the journal Optica . The retina of the eye is an extension of the central nervous system. Ganglion cells ...
