Supplementary Video 3 from the article De Fauw et al. “Clinically applicable deep learning for diagnosis and referral in retinal disease”. Nature Medicine (in press) (2018), DOI: 10.1038/s41591-018-0107-6
Scans are quick and safe to perform and are thus commonly used in the screening of patients without visual symptoms or other ophthalmic findings. A 46-year old man who was referred for retinal specialist review. Best corrected visual acuity was 6/6. The model correctly selects the referral decision as “Observation Only”, suggesting that the OCT findings in isolation do not require referral to an ophthalmologist. The model accurately delineates the neurosensory retina without the presence of any pathologic compartments. It also highlights partial separation of the posterior hyaloid of the vitreous – this is a normal finding as the vitreous gel increasingly liquefies with age.
