Title: Quantitative imaging of retinal morphology and physiology: instrument development and data analysis

Abstract: As one part of central nervous system (CNS), the retina is a neurovascular network complex located at the back of the eye. Retinal imaging is essential for screening, diagnosis and treatment evaluation of eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy (DR), age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinopathy of premature (ROP), etc. Recently, it is also proposed that the retina can work as an accessible window for noninvasive assessment of neural degeneration due to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. However, traditional fundus photography has limited field of view (FOV) and image contrast to reveal subtle retinal distortions at early stage of eye conditions. Moreover, conventional fundus photography reveals only morphological abnormality that doesn’t reflect physiological dysfunction directly. In collaboration with experienced eye doctors and vision scientists, our Biomedical Optics and Functional Imaging Laboratory is working on the development of ultra-wide field fundus photography, super-resolution ophthalmoscopy, functional imaging of retinal physiology, and machine learning classification of eye diseases.
