AI at the Department of Ophthalmology
Ophthalmology is one of the top-fields in medicine regarding the number of attending patients. At a daily basis, a high number of non-invasive imaging procedures are performed at the department, and it is a high priority to develop and implement AI-based automatic solutions for image analysis. In close partnership with estimated national and international colleagues in technical and medical fields, we are constantly advancing our research position with the overall aim to implement AI-based technology in order to improve clinical care for our patients.
