Our PhD student Harry Pratt picked up the Henri Sueke prize this afternoon for his talk entitled Automated Diagnosis of Fundus Images for Diabetic Retinopathy for Treatment Referral.
A Novel Tool for Diabetic Retinopathy Diagnosis
Harry's work aims to provide an automatic prelimary diagnosis of Diabetic Retinopathy from fundus images. This will allow for an immediate referral recommendation at point of care, proving considerable acceleration to grading decisions and reducing grader workloads. His deep learning methods were tested on 10,000 images, achieving impressive results.
