CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCCU) — A new technology to help those with diabetes has come to Central Illinois.
Several OSF doctor offices have a new AI technology that can detect diabetic retinopathy within minutes.
OSF diabetic patient Betsy Huffman took the test one day during her regular doctor’s appointment back in September of last year.
“They came in and asked me if I would go do it. It was the first day and I was sure. So I did and then they showed me and said that I tested positive for the retinopathy,” explained Huffman.
