Featured News // FPRC // News // Research News // Mar 13 2019

Barbara Blodi, MD, professor and medical director of the Fundus Photograph Reading Center (FPRC), and Amitha Domalpally, MD, research director of the FPRC were recently panelists for the Retina Times article, “Exploring the Role of Reading Centers in the Era of Artificial Intelligence.” The Retina Times is a publication of the American Society of Retina Specialists.

The article notes, “In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has begun to revolutionize medicine and medical research—and in some cases, available algorithms can outperform clinicians. The debate is everywhere: Will machines someday monopolize or even take over clinical care? Here, we specifically address the involvement of AI in reading centers—organizations that perform image analysis in clinical trials and that happen to be the perfect playground for AI.”
