AGLAIA Single statement A system for the automated detection of glaucoma from multiple image features of retinal images with possible genetic analysis.
Glaucoma Has No Cure! Glaucoma Irreversible loss of optic nerves Leading to blindness 5.7 million glaucoma blind (total 38 million blind in the world) BUT: glaucoma can be slowed if detected early Vision loss (functional) Optic nerve damage (imaging)
Optic Nerve Damage Precedes Vision Loss No Glaucoma Early Late Stage Nerve Damaged Severe Vision Loss Optic Nerve Pictures from NIH
Measure Optic Nerve Damage from Retinal Image - CDR CDR (Cup to Disc Ratio) value is an important indicator for Glaucoma Automatic CDR measurement Saving clinician’s time Results reproducible Ideal for mass screening DiscCup
Step 1: Disc segmentation Step 2: Boundary smoothing of the detected disc Step 3: Cup segmentation Step 4: Boundary smoothing of the detected cup Step 5: Intelligent Fusion AGLAIA
13 Image cues used in AGLAIA AGLAIA aims to provide a multi-modality system that captures globally a range of parameter that is indicative of early glaucoma damage. AGLAIA will automatically measure and assess the following features objectively and quantitatively, features which are currently evaluated subjectively by glaucoma specialist in clinical practice: Cup-to-disc ratio (CDR) – further refinement will be made based on initial algorithms developed in ARGALI Disc hemorrhage (DH) Thinning of the NRR (NeuroRetinal Rim) Notching of the NRR Compliance of NRR width by ‘ISNT Rule’ (inferior≥superior≥nasal≥temporal) Inter-eye asymmetry Parapapillary atrophy (PPA) Blood vessel pattern analysis Blood vessel kink analysis Tilted Disc - quantify the degree of tilting based on the disc contour Disc Size - automatically classify disc size to "large, medium or small" categories based on automatic disc measurement Gradeability – analyze the image and determine gradeability Check the presence of RNFL (Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer) defect.
Image Datasets Datasets used for testing Retinal Vessel and Glaucoma Subtype Study (RVGSS) 65 glaucoma images Singapore Indian Chinese Cohort (SICC) 224 non-glaucoma images Clinical CDR provided
Test Result Summary Specificity 0.88 Sensitivity 0.95 Average absolute CDR error (wrt clinical CDR) 0.14
AGLAIA Market Potential The Technology can be readily implemented in currently available instruments for ocular screening without extensive modifications. The Technology could potentially be of interest to ocular instrument makers to incorporate the Technology into their equipment, and to health institutions such as clinics and hospitals for glaucoma screening.
