grdaing Table 1 summarises the benefits. Conclusions of this second study were that optometrists grade a diverse array of anterior eye conditions, the three ocular conditions that were found to clcru the most frequently graded were corneal staining, papillary conjunctivitis and conjunctival redness. The objective grading of ocular redness involves judgement of both the hue and vessel size, relative to the area under question.
Southwest Independent Institutional Review Board, Palpebral hyperaemia and staining grading is complicated by the variable presentations possible.

Edge detection techniques are local rather than global in nature and examine the surrounding pixels to determine the presence of edges vessels or areas of staining. A second study was by Efron et al.
The BHVI photographic scales have been criticised for the lack of perfect homogeneity between images representing the same condition, either in terms of different illumination conditions gradiny variability of size of the area under display.

Both techniques were strongly correlated with increasing bulbar hyperaemia scale grades, although for higher grades the Annunziato and Vistakon-Synoptik scales rely on an increase in red colouration in isolation, rather than in combination with an increased number of blood vessels.
Examples of more recently introduced grading scales.
Curr Eye Res ; Compared with reported values of clinician subjective grading variability using these ccoru scales, 7, 9, 12, 15 image analysis techniques are approximately 6—35 times more repeatable, with a sensitivity of 2. Open in a separate window. Nowadays, many practitioners record clinical information electronically by entering data into defined fields within computer-based clinical management software programs — a practice that in effect prompts practitioners to capture all relevant aspects of the presenting signs and symptoms.
A novel grading method for superficial punctate keratopathy magnitude and its correlation with corneal epithelial permeability. Palpebral hyperaemia scale images were well described by colour extraction techniques.
C42682: Clinical grading scales
The increments of the grading scales were best described by a quadratic rather than a linear function. The average time taken to record anterior eye health was 6. CLAO J ; Practitioners must record the grading scale used, and ideally standardise this within an individual practice or corporate groups. Support Center Support Center. Edge detection filled symbols and relative red colouration open symbols with grading scale images of bulbar hyperaemia.
Incremental nature of anterior eye grading scales determined by objective image analysis
Example of edge detection and colour extraction techniques applied to a selected dashed rectangle area of an image of bulbar hyperaemia. Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci ; The subjective judgement that a practitioner makes at the slit lamp is however a complex one to mimic objectively. Indeed it is estimated that gradongcopies of these scales scwles usually in the scsles of laminated A4 reference cards but also in large poster format — have been provided to practitioners in the past 20 years.
Further investigation of the palpebral response to stimuli such as antigens, toxic chemicals, and mechanical effects is required to determine whether the response is similar and how it should be best depicted or photographed for cclry purposes. Vistakon-Synoptik palpebral conjunctivitis images were analysed selecting the palpebral hyperaemia and the area with reflections separately to distinguish between hyperaemia and roughness. An area of approximately 90 pixels about 6.
Colour extraction has face validity 28 and dclru global relative colouration red for hyperaemia and green for staining. Analysis of microvascular network scalse bulbar conjunctiva by image processing. Clinical grading scales Closing Date: Accepted Mar Annunziato and Efron pictorial, and CCLRU and Vistakon-Synoptik photographic grades of bulbar hyperaemia, palpebral hyperaemia roughness, and corneal staining were analysed.
The objective computer image analysis grading techniques used in these studies have not yet been generally used in clinical practice. There was no significant difference in discrimination between edge detection and colour extraction for each of the grading scales 2.
What we are not that good at, however, is being consistent with our colleagues. Automated measurement of bulbar redness. Key factors in the subjective and objective assessment of conjunctival erythema. Increments of scales used.
Evaluation of the range of areas of the fluorescein staining patterns of the tarsal conjunctiva in man. Clinical monitoring of ocular physiology using digital image analysis. Image analysis of a particular feature may require the assessment of a number of characteristics to provide a more simplistic condition grade, scalees with although having better repeatability and sensitivity than subjective techniques.
