Macular holes are ruptures in the central part of the retina that if left untreated may lead to serious vision loss. Although there is a lot yet to know about this pathology, it is established that if one suffers from unilateral idiopathic macular hole (IMH), then there is an increased risk of developing the same condition in the fellow eye. The goal of this work is to use optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans and, resorting to automatic pattern recognition algorithms, develop a classifier… CONTINUE READING
