Close-up photo of an eye

The availability of health datasets has accelerated digital health research. Ophthalmology has been one of the leading areas of innovation, where several public datasets for ophthalmic imaging have been use in machine learning research. Datasets are a critical component for machine learning algorithm development, hence these need careful scrutiny prior to use. Prior to our review, it was previously unknown how many ophthalmic datasets existed, their degree of accessibility... Read more

Freely available (open access) datasets containing skin images are frequently used to develop deep learning algorithms for skin cancer diagnosis. As these algorithms are heavily influenced by the images that they are trained on, it is important that the composition and characteristics of datasets are outlined, such as which populations images are taken from. This information is often... Read more
