Infrared Imaging Explored for Diabetic Retinopathy Screening
Screening near-infrared reflectance imaging could identify cases of diabetic retinopathy for early treatment, researchers say. In a retrospective study of near-infrared images acquired through standard optical coherence tomography (OCT) equipment, researchers were able to distinguish eyes with moderate, severe, or proliferative diabetic retinopathy from eyes without the condition.
