Diabetic retinopathy is a common microvascular complication of type 2 diabetes and a leading cause of blindness worldwide. Diabetic retinopathy is a condition of the eye caused by damage to the blood vessels as a result of chronically elevated blood sugar levels. Early on, diabetic retinopathy may cause no symptoms or only mild vision problems. Studies have shown those with Diabetic retinopathy also have a significantly increased risk of developing coronary heart disease as a comorbidity associated with type 2 diabetes. CarePortMD is pioneering the use of IDx-DR, the first-ever FDA-cleared autonomous AI diagnostic system for diabetic retinopathy. Screenings are fast, with no downtime.
Disclaimer-IDx-DR is only designed to detect diabetic retinopathy. IDx-DR is not intended to detect concomitant diseases, ophthalmic or other systemic diseases. Patients should not rely on IDx-DR for the detection of any other disease. Patients with an IDx-DR output indicating diabetic retinopathy should be immediately referred to an eye-care provider for further screening and treatment that is consistent with the recommendations of appropriate professional societies.
