Degenerative Diseases Detection in the Eye

By R. A. / 27/03/2017 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Modern imaging knows how to capture an image to see through the eye tissue transparency and inspect retina, vasculature and neural tissue: this phenomenon is unique and it is made possible by the fact that the retina is an extension of the central nervous system (CNS), connected with the optic ne...

Image processing for pediatric strabismus

By R. A. / 12/03/2017 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Strabismus is a disorder in which the eyes are not properly aligned and point to different directions. When this happens, the “straighter” eye becomes more dominant and the weaker eye does not focus properly. Eventually, the brain ignores input from the weaker eye; this disorder is called amblyop...

ROP: Retinopathy of Prematurity

By R. A. / 08/03/2017 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a leading cause of blindness in infants. ROP (or Terry syndrome) is a disease of the eye affecting prematurely-born, low birthweight infants having received intensive neonatal care which includes oxygen therapy. Oxygen toxicity causes abnormal growth of retinal...

Eyelid Drooping – Blepharoptosis

By R. A. / 05/03/2017 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Blepharoptosis, also known as ptosis, is a drooping of the upper eyelid causing a narrowing of the palpebral fissure (or palpebral aperture), which is the opening between the eye lids. Eyelid drooping may result from any affection of the nerve supply of the upper eyelid musculature, from a diseas...

Retinal images enhancement

By R. A. / 12/02/2017 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Image enhancement of retinal structures has the potential to facilitate diagnosis of several eye diseases. Retinal disease diagnosis and monitoring often requires very delicate analysis that can be only accomplished with appropriate resources, which include Fundus camera or OCT device with high r...

Meibomian gland dysfunction detection

By R. A. / 22/01/2017 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Meibomian gland dysfunction is often seen as an early stage of dry eye syndrome. Indeed, Meibomian glands play a significant role in tears production by contributing lipids to the superficial tear film. Pathologies which occur in meibomian glands limit the secretion of oil, causing poor lubricati...

Retinal Detachment Detection

By R. A. / 15/01/2017 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Retinal detachment occurs when part of the retina detaches itself from the pigmented cell layer of the RPE, depriving itself of blood and nutrition: this condition causes blur and loss of vision. There are 2 types of detachment: either it is caused by fluids, which might be of lacrimal origins, g...

Retinal inner layers segmentation

By R. A. / 02/01/2017 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

OCT is the only method that can perform noninvasive imaging with non-ionizing radiation and offering relatively good resolution. That is why it has become a standard in clinical ophthalmology. Segmentation of anatomical and pathological structures in ophthalmic images is crucial for the diagnosis...

Diabetic retinopathy screening and microaneurysm detection

By R. A. / 14/12/2016 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is a leading cause of blindness, especially among adults and even more among the elderly segments of the population. It is associated with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It occurs when high glucose levels in the blood damage blood vessels in the retinal area, leading to sma...

Retinal images taken with mobile cameras

By R. A. / 13/12/2016 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Portable cameras able to help ophthalmologists have been a desired solution for a long time. Among the reasons for the need of an additional device to support the eye physician, on top of available fixed devices, is the fact that sometimes patients who need the visit of  a doctor live in remote a...

Geographic Atrophy Segmentation Using SD-OCT

By R. A. / 28/11/2016 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

In a previous article, we talked about Geographic Atrophy segmentation in 2D images. This article focuses on how OCT images shed light on the development of Geographic Atrophy (GA) pathology. This spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) modality with its 3D information enables a bet...

Geographic Atrophy (GA)

By R. A. / 24/11/2016 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Geographic Atrophy (generally called GA) is a case of advanced Dry AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration) which might lead to vision loss. As a consequence of the thinning of the retina and loss of RPE layer (Retinal Pigment Epithelium, located just outside the retina) via death of rods and cones...

Cataract surgery software

By R. A. / 10/11/2016 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

A cataract is a blurring of the eye’s natural lens. This lens lies behind the iris and the pupil of the patient’s eye. Cataract surgery is the procedure by which the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a new IOL (intraocular lens). This new lens is an artificial medical device, which i...
