An important obstacle to fight better diabetic retinopathy is the use of a classification based on old imaging techniques insufficient to finely predict the evolution of the disease. New imaging techniques (including ultra widefield fundus photography, optical coherence tomography, OCT-angiography) are already available. They generate vast new valuable data, that combined with other data and with a new adapted classification can provide a more accurate evaluation of diabetic retinopathy risks. This will be the based to the development of a more personalized preventive treatment that can help maintain the full vision of diabetic patients.
Our difference is to use new technologies to develop a medical decision support tool.
The combination of diabetology and ophthalmology knowledge, industrial R&D and academics skills, large cohort of patients with companies that are already world class leaders creates a unique opportunity to make this project a success.
We will use a unique combination of clinical information of patients, the best modalities of retinal imaging, and our home-made artificial intelligence to provide ophthalmologists with a decision aid tool for improved diagnosis and risk evaluation, allowing them to take an easier, quicker, and better decision for their patients. Per design, instead of increasing costs and inequity EviRed should help reducing unnecessary treatment or burden and ease the spread of expertise to where it is needed.
Database 1 is the first of EviRed clinical trials.
Aim: To recruit a cohort of 5000 patients, in 10 different French sites scattered across the country, and follow them for at least 2 years to collect data needed to train and validate developed algorithms.
They participate and recruit for the project Evired DataBase 1
