Strong presence of the Rotterdam Ophthalmic Institute at the annual ARVO meeting May 5-9 2013
Posted on 2 June 2013 by Rotterdam Ophthalmic Institute
Being the largest eye and vision research organization in the world, the ARVO meeting is always the highlight of the year for researchers working in ophthalmology. This year, nine researchers from ROI and four ophthalmologists from the Rotterdam Eye Hospital participated in the meeting with total of seven presentations including talks by Boy Braaf and Koenraad Vermeer in the Innovations in Ocular Imagingsession. These talks were crowded which emphasizes the growing interest towards Doppler OCT/eye-tracking in OCT imaging and attenuation coefficient approach for OCT image analysis.
During the 5-day conference, our poster presentations attracted a lot of attention during their respective sessions, which was seen as an enthusiastic group of researchers huddling in front of the posters. This kind of face-to-face interaction is excellent since it leads to fruitful discussions, heated debates and new collaborations. The increasing attention towards our research projects illustrates that Rotterdam Ophthalmic Institute is in the frontier of ophthalmic research in many fields like image analysis, ophthalmic imaging and statistics.
