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...

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...

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...

Glaucoma Detection

By R. A. / 17/01/2017 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Glaucoma is the second cause of blindness in the world, with over 60 million people suffering from the disease. This figure is steadily growing and most people suffering from glaucoma, even in developed countries, are not aware of their condition. Older people are at a higher risk, but glaucoma c...

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...

Retina Montage Software

By R. A. / 17/11/2016 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

The Need for Retina Montage: Retinal imaging is one of the oldest and most reliable techniques to examine the retina to analyse its status and possibly detect existing disorders. The principle is very simple: a regular camera with proper optics and enough light can look through the pupil and see ...

Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

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

Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a method which uses OCT to produce high-resolution volumetric images of the vascular tree in the eye. It has the advantage of being a non-invasive procedure. It is quick, and produces high resolution 3-dimensional histological images. With OCTA a...

Multi-modal registration of retina images

By R. A. / 08/11/2016 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Multi-modal registration of retina images is a process by which pictures taken with different modalities and/or at different times are registered. This is done principally when tracking some kind of condition concerning the patient, e.g. the evolution of a disease. One of the things that ophthalm...

Measurement of Retinal Thickness

By Felicity / 30/12/2015 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Retinal thickness is a key measurement used to assess the health of the retina and whether it needs any treatment. Thickness measure of a patient’s retina should ideally fall within a range, which varies according to the region of the eye.  For example, the retina is typically thinner in th...
