Diabetic retinopathy is a widespread microvascular problem of diabetes and remains a major cause of new-onset visual loss in industrialized nations. In addition to the morbidity and suffering caused by visual loss, the economic impact from diabetic retinopathy is tremendous. Computer-Assisted Diagnosis: Diabetes and Retinopathy brings together the multi-faceted information about the research and clinical application from academic, clinical, bioengineering, and bioinformatics perspectives. The editors bring together a stellar cast of authors to pull together this diverse and interesting field. Academic researchers, bioengineers, new investigators, and students interested in diabetes and retinopathy need an authoritative reference to bring this multidisciplinary field together to reduce the amount of time spent on source-searching and more time on actual research and the clinical application. This reference depicts the current clinical understanding of DR as well as the many scientific advances in understanding this condition
