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)
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)
