This study aims to analyze the protein aggregates spatial distribution for different cataract degrees, and correlate this information with the lens acoustical parameters and by this way, assess the cataract regional hardness. Different cataract degrees were induced ex vivo in porcine lenses. A 25 MHz ultrasonic transducer was used to obtain the acoustical(More)
To demonstrate the feasibility of a new methodology for cataract hardness characterization and automatic classification using ultrasound techniques, different cataract degrees were induced in 210 porcine lenses. A 25-MHz ultrasound transducer was used to obtain acoustical parameters (velocity and attenuation) and backscattering signals. B-Scan and(More)
OBJECTIVE To early detect nuclear cataract in vivo and automatically classify its severity degree, based on the ultrasound technique, using machine learning. METHODS A 20-MHz ophthalmic ultrasound probe with a focal length of 8.9 mm and an active diameter of 3 mm was used. Twenty-seven features in time and frequency domain were extracted for cataract(More)
This review presents and discusses the contribution of machine learning techniques for diagnosis and disease monitoring in the context of clinical vision science. Many ocular diseases leading to blindness can be halted or delayed when detected and treated at its earliest stages. With the recent developments in diagnostic devices, imaging and genomics, new(More)
