    Robust Fovea Detection in Retinal OCT Imaging using Deep Learning

    The fovea centralis is an essential landmark in the retina where the photoreceptor layer is entirely composed of cones responsible for sharp, central vision. The localization of this anatomical landmark in optical coherence tomography (OCT) volumes is important for assessing visual function correlates and treatment guidance in macular disease. In this study, the "PRE U-net" is introduced as a novel approach for a fully automated fovea centralis detection, addressing the localization as a pixel-wise regression task. 2D B-scans are sampled from each image volume and are concatenated with spatial location information to train the deep network. A total of 5586 ...
