Robust ophthalmic measurements by Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an emerging modality in ophthalmology. However, the three-dimensional measurement of the eye by OCT is still limited, e.g. by eye motion. We develop new methods to enable robust three-dimensional ophthalmic measurements – required for reliable diagnostic and surgical planning.
This requires sophisticating scanning, segmentation and reconstruction methods. Sophisticated scanning reduces the effect of eye motion and ensures the coverage needed for reliable reconstruction of the eye structures. Appropriate segmentation handles the low signal-to-noise ratio of OCT and the dynamic appearance of the structures depending on the scanning and eye orientation.
