Assessment of diabetic teleretinal imaging program at the Portland Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center

Grace L. Tsan, OD, et al.

This is a retrospective study of 200 diabetic patients who had teleretinal imaging performed at Portland Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center outpatient clinics. Most (90%) of the available teleretinal imaging studies were of adequate quality for interpretation. At outpatient clinics with both a teleretinal imaging program and an eye clinic, the rate of timely diabetic retinal examinations was higher than at the outpatient clinics with only a teleretinal imaging program or an eye clinic. The Portland VA Medical Center???s teleretinal imaging program has successfully increased the screening of patients for diabetic retinopathy, which may lead to early diagnosis and treatment of diabetic retinal diseases.
