Initial estimates of the pixel resolution needed to screen for diabetic retinopathy were based on the smallest clinically visible microaneurysm estimated to be 30pm.
Nevertheless, absence of capsular drops, hyaline caps, and capillary microaneurysms aid in differentiating LCDD/HCDD from diabetic nephropathy.
Grade 1 consisted of 'mild' generalized retinal arteriolar narrowing; Grade 2 consisted of 'more severe' generalized narrowing, focal areas of arteriolar narrowing and arteriovenous nicking; Grade 3 consisted of grades 1 and 2 signs plus the presence of retinal hemorrhages, microaneurysms, hard exudates and cotton-wool spots; Grade 4 also referred to as accelerated (malignant) hypertensive retinopathy, consisted of the signs in the preceding three grades plus optic disk swelling and macular edema.
Available in several versions, RetmarkerDR monitors the progression of Diabetic Retinopathy, using advanced proprietary algorithms that help ophthalmologists detect and calculate the appearance and disappearance rates of microaneurysms in the retina and infer, with the help of this information, the evolution of a disease consequence of Diabetes, which is one of the highest growing causes of preventable blindness in developed countries.
This pathway is believed to damage Schwann cells, causing neuropathy, and pericytes in the retinal capillaries, causing retinal microaneurysms.
The ophthalmologic evaluation consisted in analyzing the aspect of the fundus of the eye, with special attention to the retinal blood vessels, and were assigned to several groups according to the following classification: stage 0, without any evidence of retinopathy; stage I or background retinopathy, with microaneurysms, microhemorrhages and hard exudates; stage II or moderate to severe preproliferative retinopathy, with soft exudates and retinal proliferation; stage III or proliferative retinopathy, with retinal blood vessel proliferation.
Small changes in the vessels, called microaneurysms and hemorrhages, signal the development and degree of retinopathy severity.
The condition is characterised by the presence of microaneurysms - blood vessels in the retina, which have dilated so much that tiny leakages occur.
It is hierarchical with increasing severity from microaneurysms < blot haemorrhages < intraretinal microvascular anomalies < venous beading < new vessels.
Focal laser is applied directly to specific leaking microaneurysms involving the macula.
