    2. Automated circumferential construction of first-order aqueous humor outflow pathways using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

      Automated circumferential construction of first-order aqueous humor outflow pathways using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography
      The purpose was to create a three-dimensional (3-D) model of circumferential aqueous humor outflow (AHO) in a living human eye with an automated detection algorithm for Schlemms canal (SC) and first-order collector channels (CC) applied to spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Anterior segment SD-OCT scans from a subject were acquired circumferentially around the limbus. A Bayesian Ridge method was used to approximate the location of the SC on infrared confocal ...
