About this Research Topic
In recent years, there has been a surge of opportunities for the development of retinal imaging, analysis, and surgery. These developments have been achieved through advances in image processing and artificial intelligence such as computer vision-based techniques, traditional machine learning, and deep learning. These techniques have been applied rapidly and widely in the field of medical image analysis and are becoming a better way to advance ophthalmology in practice.
As well as advances in imaging and analysis, autonomous systems have also contributed towards developments in ophthalmology practices and surgical operations. The aim is to work towards overcoming biological limitations, increasing the safety of retinal procedures, and reducing surgeon training times. Examples of these developments include robot-assisted cataract surgery and microrobots for detecting oxygen levels.
This Research Topic aims to gather high-quality research papers on newly proposed work as well as state-of-the-art developments in retinal imaging and surgical operations. We aim to explore the advances in image processing, artificial intelligence, computer vision-based techniques, traditional machine learning and deep learning techniques for retinal image analysis, robotic applications for retinal imaging and surgery, as well as research papers surrounding retinal disease diagnosis such AI techniques for diagnostic of Retinopathy and other eye diseases.
We hope the research collected in this Research Topic will provide an overview of the most recent advances in retinal imaging and surgery, working towards safer and more efficient processes and techniques for treatments and diagnoses.
