Call for Participants in New Retinal Imaging Study

Reading time

Researchers at the School of Computer Science, University of Lincoln, UK, are conducting a research project to collect 2D fundus images and 3D Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) images using a fully automated retinal-imaging camera.

The study, Automated Retinal Imaging Lab (ARIAL), will look towards finding and analysing new signs in the retinal vascular system photographed at the back of the eye, which could change due to disease. These signs can then be monitored and measured over time to detect signify disease progression.

Participant Information

All images will be reviewed and stratified by a Consultant Ophthalmologist Surgeon. Any abnormality will be reported directly to you and your registered GP with clear advice on further action if needed.

Participants with or without any known eye disease or diagnosed with any chronic systemic diseases are welcome. OCT images and lifestyle data will be captured and collected every 6 months for the duration that you are available; each visit will take no longer than 30 minutes.

There has been no such dataset available for the research community in the past so this project will be of great scientific interest.

Further information can be found here. To participate, please contact Dr Bashir Al-Diri:
