An automatic tool for quantification of nerve fibers in corneal confocal microscopy images
Image Interpretation, Computer-Assisted
Pattern Recognition, Automated
CCM is a novel in vivo imaging modality that has the potential to be a noninvasive and objective image biomarker for peripheral neuropathy. Automatic quantification of nerve morphology is a major step forward in the early diagnosis and assessment of progression, and, in particular, for use in clinical trials to establish therapeutic benefit in diabetic and other peripheral neuropathies.
