    2. Müller Glia Cell Activation in a Laser-induced Retinal Degeneration and Regeneration Model in Zebrafish

      Müller Glia Cell Activation in a Laser-induced Retinal Degeneration and Regeneration Model in Zebrafish
      A fascinating difference between teleost and mammals is the lifelong potential of the teleost retina for retinal neurogenesis and regeneration after severe damage. Investigating the regeneration pathways in zebrafish might bring new insights to develop innovative strategies for the treatment of retinal degenerative diseases in mammals. Herein, we focused on the induction of a focal lesion to the outer retina in adult zebrafish by means of a 532 nm diode ...

    3. Imaging of macrophage dynamics with optical coherence tomography in anterior ischemic optic neuropathy

      Imaging of macrophage dynamics with optical coherence tomography in anterior ischemic optic neuropathy
      Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (AION) is a relatively common cause of visual loss and results from hypoperfusion of the small arteries of the anterior portion of the optic nerve. AION is the leading cause of sudden optic nerve related vision loss with approximately 10 cases per 100000 in the population over 50 years. To date there is no established treatment for AION and therefore a better understanding of the events ...

      Enhanced-depth optical coherence tomography for imaging horizontal rectus muscles in Graves’ orbitopathy
      Graves orbitopathy (GO) is an extraocular eye disease with symptoms ranging from minor discomfort from dry eyes to strabismus and visual loss. One of the hallmarks of active GO is visible hyperemia at the insertion of the extraocular muscles. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the use of enhanced-depth imaging spectral domain anterior segment optical coherence tomography (EDI SD AS-OCT) for detecting pathological changes in horizontal recti ...

    15. Landmark Detection for Fusion of Fundus and MRI Toward a Patient-Specific Multimodal Eye Model

      Landmark Detection for Fusion of Fundus and MRI Toward a Patient-Specific Multimodal Eye Model
      Ophthalmologists typically acquire different image modalities to diagnose eye pathologies. They comprise, e.g., Fundus photography, optical coherence tomography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Yet, these images are often complementary and do express the same pathologies in a different way. Some pathologies are only visible in a particular modality. Thus, it is beneficial for the ophthalmologist to have these modalities fused into a single patient-specific model. The goal ...

    18. Classification of Drusen Positions in Optical Coherence Tomography Data from Patients with Age-Related Macular Degeneration

      Classification of Drusen Positions in Optical Coherence Tomography Data from Patients with Age-Related Macular Degeneration
      Quantitative analysis of optical coherence tomography volumes is an important tool for both clinicians and researchers. Until now, most work has focused on segmentation of the intraretinal cell layers, but the segmentation of pathological datasets remains challenging. We propose the application of random forest to detect the locations of drusen in the retinal pigment epithelium. This is an important step for further analysis of optical coherence tomography data, for segmentation ...

      Pathology Hinting as the Combination of Automatic Segmentation with a Statistical Shape Model
      With improvements in acquisition speed and quality, the amount of medical image data to be screened by clinicians is starting to become challenging in the daily clinical practice. To quickly visualize and find abnormalities in medical images, we propose a new method combining segmentation algorithms with statistical shape models. A statistical shape model built from a healthy population will have a close fit in healthy regions. The model will however ...
