HumanInsight Visualization of retinal breaks on ultra-widefield fundus imaging using a digital green filter
Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol. 2022 Nov 9. doi: 10.1007/s00417-022-05855-8. Online ahead of print.
PURPOSE: We compare the ability of resident physicians to identify retinal breaks on ultra-widefield color fundus photos using the traditional image compared to an image with a green filter overlay.
METHODS: Residents were shown fundus photos of 10 eyes with either a retinal tear or hole. Participants were shown each photo twice-once with traditional color settings and once with a green filter overlay. Participants were scored on whether the break was correctly identified and timed on how long it took to identify the pathology.
RESULTS: Residents were able to correctly identify more retinal breaks on fundus photos with a green filter overlay compared to photos with traditional settings (P = 0.02). Residents were also able to identify breaks on fundus photos more quickly on images with a green filter overlay compared to the traditional images (P < 0.001).
CONCLUSIONS: The application of a green filter overlay may help in identifying retinal breaks.
