Cybersight Consult now supports Artificial Intelligence (AI) grading of colour fundus images attached to consultation cases. The system is capable of detecting and visualising glaucoma, macular disease and diabetic retinopathy. Learn more about our technical performance and how Cybersight AI can improve patient referral uptake.
This service is available free of charge to eye health professionals in developing countries.
In this short video, I’ll explain how to use Cybersight AI to perform automated interpretation of fundus images. Cybersight AI is a free, open-access tool that can detect and visualize diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and macular disease. It can be used by eye-health professionals with a Cybersight Consult account. Cybersight AI can be used in two ways:
First, AI-only cases can be submitted solely for automated interpretation, with no human mentor involved. Alternatively, images can also be attached to patient cases submitted for a second opinion.
In either option you can attach up to eight images per case and the AI results are returned in about a minute. You’ll receive an email notification when your report is ready. The PDF report can be easily downloaded or printed for your records.
“Expert View” gives you a more granular view of your images, allowing you to zoom-in on areas of concern, and turn AI annotations on and off for better visualization. If you’d still like advice from a human expert, you can also optionally re-submit your AI-only case to a Cybersight mentor for more in-depth discussion, and mentors will typically respond within a few hours.
Here are some tips for getting high-quality results from Cybersight AI:
Use a forty-five or sixty-degree macula-centered image
Use high quality images exported directly from the fundus camera
Ensure only one fundus appears in the image, and nothing else
By contrast, avoid SLO or widefield images, OCT scans, patient reports, visual fields or multiple fundus images in a single file, and don’t submit a photo of your monitor or a piece of paper.
To get started, sign in into your Cybersight account by going to cybersight.org, or scan the QR code.
