1. Researchers publish super-resolution OCT retina scans to encourage development of AMD-diagnosis software

    MARCH 20, 2009--An optical coherence tomography (OCT) system with twice the resolution of commercial instruments is the cornerstone of a project designed to shed light on age-related macular degeneration (AMD)--a leading cause of vision loss. The project produced detailed 3D images of the eyes of more than 2000 people. It leverages an OSA-led initiative to facilitate data sharing, and hopes to pave the way for new diagnostic software that might enable treatments to halt vision loss.
