Imaging and Biomarkers in Ophthalmology

Submission Deadline: 5th December 2023 We are pleased to offer a 25% discount on the Article Processing Charge (APC) for articles submitted to this Topic Collection. Please visit our author hub for more information about the benefits of submitting to a Topic Collection. Ophthalmic imaging methods play a crucial role in the diagnosis, clinical assessment, surgical and medical management and monitoring of numerous pathologies involving the anterior as well as the posterior segment. A wide variety of imaging technologies are currently available, including corneal topography, specular and confocal microscopy, anterior and posterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT), OCT angiography, retinal photography, adaptive optics and ocular ultrasound. The dramatic advances in these in vivo non‐invasive imaging techniques allowed an improved detection and characterization of morphological and functional changes in ocular structures, also at a subclinical level. In this regard, numerous biomarkers and predictive findings have been identified in both anterior and posterior segments. In addition, the promising results associated with the application of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning open new perspectives in screening, diagnosis, monitoring and prediction of progression of a wide variety of physiological and pathological ocular conditions. In this Topic Collection, we aim to include original studies as well as reviews on principles, clinical and surgical applications, new developments, and perspectives of ophthalmic imaging tools/methods as well as artificial intelligence and deep learning, in both anterior and posterior segments. Authors are invited to submit articles on themes including, but not limited to the following: • Ophthalmic imaging • Corneal topography • Scheimpflug imaging • Corneal biomarkers • Retinal biomarkers • Specular and/or confocal microscopy • Optical coherence tomography (OCT) • OCT angiography • Multimodal imaging • Fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography • Fundus autofluorescence • (Ultra)-Wide field retinal imaging • Adaptive optics • Optic nerve imaging • Ocular ultrasound • Artificial intelligence • Deep learning technique
