Diagnosis and Center Hospitalitale de l’University de Montreal launches autonomous artificial intelligence solution testing phase dedicated to diabetic retinopathy screening

BROSSARD, Quebec, May 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Diagnos Inc. (“DIAGNOS,” the “Company” or “we”) (TSX Venture Exchange: ADK) (OTCQB: DGNOF), a leader in early detection and health issues thanks to FL Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologyThere isRE is pleased to announce the launch of an autonomous artificial intelligence solution testing phase dedicated to diabetic retinopathy screening, in partnership with the Center Hospitalitale de l’University de Montreal (CHUM).

It is with great pleasure that DIAGNOS and CHUM are embarking on clinical studies that will, with precision, establish the level of effectiveness of autonomous algorithms for the identification and classification of diabetic retinopathy patients by disease severity level. .

“This episode concludes a partnership aimed at automated detection of diabetic retinopathy, which began in June 2018.” Mr. Andre Laurente, President of Diagons. This phase of testing and performance analysis was approved by CHUM following a rigorous independent evaluation process performed by CHUM physicians, following the positive results of assessment of classification algorithms by level of intensity in autonomous mode in recent months.

“This project is fully in line with CHUM’s desire to improve patient service access through partnerships that allow the development and integration of innovative solutions. Directed Dr. Fabrice Brunett, President and CEO of CHUM.

Retinal fundus images of more than 600 diabetics in CHUM’s Endocrinology Department will be analyzed by Diagons’ Neoretina Artificial Intelligence Deep Learning Algorithm in collaboration with CHUM’s Ophthalmology Department. This solution allows for the identification of lesions caused by diabetic retinopathy and the classification of disease evolution by level of severity. Conducted in a “double-blind” type of comparison mode, this test will allow CHUM professionals to precisely determine the level of operation and accuracy of the Neuretina Autonomous Algorithm.

Regarding the advantages of this automated screening technology, Head of the Department of Endocrinology at CHUM. Andre Boucher, Delighted with the increased amount of screening that will be accomplished: “Diabetic retinopathy affects a large number of diabetic patients. However, since in the early stages of the disease, patients are usually asymptomatic and the symptoms do not usually appear until a more advanced stage of the disease, this method of independent screening is easily carried out during the annual examination of patients, will help reduce the number of complications. A

As Dr. Selim Lahaud, Head of Chom Eye DepartmentThe latter agrees with his colleague and confirms that the use of artificial intelligence solutions created by screening diagnostics for diabetic retinopathy will contribute to the priority and improvement of patient care by ophthalmologists.

In addition to being accurate, efficient and fast, DIAGNOS’s artificial intelligence screening solutions allow a significant reduction in costs and allow early detection of pathologies. Since diabetes is the second leading cause of blindness in Canada, integrating these solutions into medical follow-up programs, such as those given to diabetic patients, allows a large number of patients to save their eyesight!
