Macular Oedema

The objectives of this project are to develop and assess novel image analysis techniques of 3D OCT scans for volumetric assessment of different morphological patterns in diabetic macular oedema (DMO) such as:

  • Overall volume of the generalised outer retinal thickening in early DMO.
  • Volume of accumulated serous fluid under the neurosensory retina (SRF).
  • Residual volume of retinal tissue passing between the inner and outer plexiform retinal layers, which is an optimal measurement of potential residual macular function.
