  author={Guan Wang and Yusuke Kikuchi and Jinglin Yi and Qiong Zou and Rui Zhou and Xin Guo},
Retinal vascular diseases affect the well-being of human body and sometimes provide vital signs of otherwise undetected bodily damage. Recently, deep learning techniques have been successfully applied for detection of diabetic retinopathy (DR). The main obstacle of applying deep learning techniques to detect most other retinal vascular diseases is the limited amount of data available. In this paper, we propose a transfer learning technique that aims to utilize the feature similarities for…

Deep Retinal Image Analysis and Classification Using Deer Hunting Optimization-Based Tandem Pulse Coupled Neural Network

The main aim of this research is to detect diabetic retinopathy early from the fundus images by utilizing features such as coherence, edge features, shape features, local binary pattern, and Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM) features from the segmented output.



Development and Validation of a Deep Learning Algorithm for Detection of Diabetic Retinopathy in Retinal Fundus Photographs.

An algorithm based on deep machine learning had high sensitivity and specificity for detecting referable diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema in retinal fundus photographs from adults with diabetes.

Novel Transfer Learning Approach for Medical Imaging with Limited Labeled Data

A novel transfer learning approach to overcome the previous drawbacks by means of training the deep learning model on large unlabeled medical image datasets and by next transferring the knowledge to train the deepLearning model on the small amount of labeled medical images is proposed.

Med3D: Transfer Learning for 3D Medical Image Analysis

A heterogeneous 3D network called Med3D is designed to co-train multi-domain 3DSeg-8 so as to make a series of pre-trained models which can accelerate the training convergence speed of target 3D medical tasks and improve accuracy ranging from 3% to 20%.

Supervised Transfer Learning at Scale for Medical Imaging

Interestingly, it is found that for some of these properties, transfer from natural to medical images is indeed extremely effective, but only when performed at sufficient scale.

Transfusion: Understanding Transfer Learning for Medical Imaging

Investigating the learned representations and features finds that some of the differences from transfer learning are due to the over-parametrization of standard models rather than sophisticated feature reuse, and isolate where useful feature reuse occurs, and outline the implications for more efficient model exploration.

Preterm-associated visual impairment and estimates of retinopathy of prematurity at regional and global levels for 2010

Improved care, including oxygen delivery and monitoring, for preterm babies in all facility settings would reduce the number of babies affected with ROP and improve data tracking and coverage of locally adapted screening/treatment programs.

The role of comprehensive eye exams in the early detection of diabetes and other chronic diseases in an employed population.

As employers strive to better manage health and business outcomes, comprehensive eye health exams can provide an opportunity for early disease detection and associated cost savings through referral to primary care providers and condition management programs.

Retinal imaging improves the discrimination and stratification of stroke risk beyond that of established risk factors by a significant but small margin.

Screening Examination of Premature Infants for Retinopathy of Prematurity

The attributes on which an effective program for detecting and treating ROP could be based are presented, including the timing of initial examination and subsequent reexamination intervals.
