Annual ARVO meeting 2015
Posted on 22 June 2015 by Rotterdam Ophthalmic Institute
The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) is the largest and most respected eye and vision research organization in the world. Every year a meeting is organized to exhibit and discuss the recent advancements in Eye research. This year researchers, students and leading experts from all over the world gathered in Denver, Colorado.
The Rotterdam Eye Hospital and Rotterdam Ophthalmic Institute were represented in this year's ARVO meeting by nine outstanding researchers, presenting 7 posters and 4 oral presentations, generating a lot of interest among the audience. Topics varied from applied clinical research and genetics to image analysis of OCT, fundus photography and visual field tests. Studied diseases were glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment.
The oral and poster presentations made by various researchers from the Rotterdam Eye Hospital at the conference were as follows:
- Kedir Adal: Evaluation of Fundus Image Illumination Normalization in Longitudinal Diabetic Retinopathy Screening.
- Susan Bryan: Sensitivity improvement in detecting visual field progression by modeling Global Visit Effects.
- Babak Ghafaryasl (presented by Koen Vermeer): Automatic estimation of retinal nerve fiber bundle orientation in SD-OCT images.
- Maximilian Gräfe: Quantification of retinal blood flow in swept-source Doppler OCT.
- Henk de Jong: A randomized controlled trial comparing intravitreal versus subretinal injection of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator for displacement of acute submacular haemorrhage in AMD using SD-OCT volume measurements.
- Grzegorz Labuz: Ocular straylight in the normal pseudophakic eye.
- Ida van Meurs: Is a pillow a risk factor for glaucoma?
- Verena Mulder: Clinical usefulness of preoperative anterior chamber flare as predictor for PVR in patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.
- Laurence Pierrache: Congenital hearing loss is associated with earlier visual decline in USH2A retinitis pigmentosa.
- Koen Vermeer: Advanced computational
