Laboratory for Ophthalmic Image Analysis (OPTIMA) is an interdisciplinary research lab composed of retinal specialists, computer scientists and software engineers, developing innovative image analysis methods for precision medicine in retinal disease. Our research focus lies on the quantitative analysis of state-of-the-art ophthalmic imaging data, in particular OCT, and the development of prognostic disease models for improved patient management in leading eye diseases.
The lab has access to extremely large sets of ophthalmic images and is well-equipped with a dedicated high-performance computing cluster containing the latest generation GPUs.
The group keeps close collaboration with several high-performance academic research institutions, as well as partnership with imaging device and pharmaceutical companies.
The Medical University of Vienna is an international center of excellence and one of the largest research institutions in Europe located at the heart of historic Vienna. Vienna has recently been named the world’s most liveable city for the tenth time!.
