Segmentation and diameter measurement of vessels in OCTA images

Motivation
OCTA is an emerging technology enabling novel applications. Its use in ophthalmology to visualize the vessels on the retina in 3D provides the physicians valuable information on a patients condition. The subjective evaluation by the physician comprises inter- and intra-individual variations. Therefore, an objective measure should be developed. The vessel density is such an objective measure. This project consists of a review on different published methods to assess the vessel density and their adaption to this specific application. Data is available and can be used.

Project description
The project consists of a literature research on published methods to assess the vessel density. Promising approaches and their adaption should be implemented and tested on the available data sets. Discussion is needed since no ground truth is available. The implementation is done in MATLAB.
