Lo screening nella retinopatia diabetica

Diabetic retinopathy screening

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the main ocular complication of diabetes. Among all the causes of blindness, it is the only one whose global prevalence has increased over the past 30 years. DR prevalence is expected to increase in the upcoming years. Therefore, it is essential to establish cost-effective screening programs for early diagnosis of DR, which using new imaging systems, telemedicine and artificial intelligence prevent its evolution to advanced sight-threatening stages.
