What you should know:

1. Teams from Boston-based providers New England Eye Center and Tufts Medical Center are using deep learning technology to see if such technology can be used in ophthalmology.

2. Investigators discovered the deep learning model was able to quantify intraretinal fluid pockets at a rate similar to human performance.
