Detection of neurological conditions is important in the current context of increasingly ageing population. Imaging of the retina and optic nerve head is a unique method to detect brain diseases, but it requires specific human expertise.
The latest review highlights artificial intelligence methods such as deep learning that can be applied for automated interpretation of retinal images, with the potential to identify structural lesions.

The Annals is the official journal of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore. Established in 1972, Annals is the leading medical journal in Singapore which aims to publish novel findings from clinical research as well as medical practices that can benefit the medical community.
Published monthly, online, open-access and peer-reviewed, Annals is indexed in Index Medicus, Science Citation Index – Expanded, ISI Alerting Services, and Current Contents/ Clinical Medicine. Impact Factor for the Annals in 2021 is 8.713 and 5-year Impact Factor is 5.544.
The rapidly ageing population and enlarging burden of chronic diseases require a proportionate emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention. A health system that is more data-driven and patient-centric, which leverages the innovative use of technology and digital solutions, will be areas warranting research attention and coverage. The Annals invites submission of manuscripts that advance the scientific basis of clinical knowledge, and the practice of medicine in Singapore and internationally. We welcome submissions that address challenges in the management of chronic diseases (e.g. cancer, cardiovascular diseases, ageing, diabetes mellitus and neurological diseases), and use of technology and digital medicine to improve patient care.Papers of sufficient merits will be published. Authors will also be notified if their manuscripts are deemed not suitable for publication.
