Moorfields Eye Hospital (United KIngdom) – Dr. Konstantinos Balaskas

A team led by Dr Konstantinos Balaskas at Moorfields Eye Hospital Reading Centre has developed a fully automated, deep-learning model (algorithm) that can detect and quantify geographic atrophy using standard optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans. The algorithm will be hugely beneficial to clinicians providing care for patients with geographic atrophy (GA), who will need a reliable and fast way to assess the severity of geographic atrophy, how fast it progresses and how well it responds to emerging new treatments With research into ground-breaking new treatments for GA showing great promise, this new model helps pave the way for their effective use for patient benefit.
