Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL CREATE A COMPUTER-ASSISTED AID TO OPHTHALMIC DIAGNOSIS. THIS PRODUCT WILL BE AN OPTICAL STORAGE MEDIUM THAT CONTAINS BOTH AN EXPERT SYSTEM FOR THE DIAGNOSIS OF FUNDUS DISEASE AND COLOR FUNDUS PHOTOGRAPHS OF EACH DISEASE ENTITY THAT WILL BE PRESENTED TO THE OPERATOR IN CONFIRMATION OF THE DIAGNOSIS. THE AVAILABILITY OF MASS STORAGE MEDIA FOR MICROCOMPUTERS PLUS BAHILL INTELLIGENT COMPUTER SYSTEMS' SPECIAL SKILLS IN EXPERT SYSTEMS MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO DESIGN A SYSTEM THAT WILL PRESENT SUCH A LARGE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION TO THE NONEXPERT PHYSICIAN. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THIS APPROACH CAN BE EXPANDED TO MUCHOF OPHTHALMOLOGY AND IS ADAPTABLE TO OTHER PROBLEMS IN MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS. BOTH PATIENTS AND MEDICAL PROVIDERS SHOULD BENEFIT GREATLY.
