Imaging and Biomarkers in Ophthalmology

Ophthalmic imaging methods are crucial for diagnosing and managing various eye pathologies, enabling improved detection and characterization of structural and functional changes in the eye. The application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning in ophthalmic imaging opens up new possibilities for screening, diagnosis, monitoring, and predicting the progression of ocular conditions. This Topic Collection includes original research on various ophthalmic imaging methods, biomarkers and the use of AI, and Deep Learning techniques in both anterior and posterior segments of the eye.
