In this work, a novel paradigm for segmenting optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is presented [1]. Since it uses OCT and OCTA information jointly it is called “OCT-OCTA segmentation” and its usefulness is demonstrated by segmenting the Bruch’s Membrane (BM) in the presence of drusen. Therefore a fully automatic graph-cut algorithm was developed and evaluated by comparing the automatic segmentation results with manual segmentation in 7 eyes (6 patients; 73.8 ± 5.7 y/o) with nascent geographic atrophy and/or drusen associated geographic atrophy.
