TOPIC COLLECTION: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND OPHTHALMIC DIAGNOSIS

Papilledema detection by nonophthalmologists can be challenging. Conversely, the classification of anomalous optic discs as papilledematous may subject patients to anxiety regarding the diagnosis and to expensive and invasive testing, such as MRI and lumbar puncture, that ultimately proves unnecessary. In the NEJM article “Artificial Intelligence to Detect Papilledema from Ocular Fundus Photographs,” Milea and colleagues report on a deep-learning system developed to distinguish papilledematous discs from normal optic discs or discs with other abnormalities.
