Welcome to the Retinal OCT Fluid Challenge! RETOUCH is organized as a half day Challenge in conjunction with the 4th MICCAI Workshop on Ophthalmic Medical Image Analysis (OMIA), a Satellite Event of the MICCAI 2017 conference in Quebec City, Canada.

RETOUCH challenge is partnering with OMIA to widen the opportunities to present your work at MICCAI. In addition to the traditional oral and poster presentations of OMIA, RETOUCH offers the chance to try your software on a real challenge, this year with OCT images

The goal of the challenge is to compare automated algorithms that are able to detect and segment various types of fluids on a common dataset of optical coherence tomography (OCT) volumes representing different retinal diseases, acquired with devices from different manufacturers. We made available a dataset of OCT volumes containing a wide variety of retinal fluid lesions with accompanying reference annotations. We invite the medical imaging community to participate by developing and testing existing and novel automated retinal OCT segmentation methods.

 


How to Participate?

If you want to participate in the challenge, you can register a team, download training and test data, submit the results, and attend the OMIA/RETOUCH workshop, provided you sign the data agreement form and agree with the rules of the challenge.

The challenge participating teams will be invited to contribute to a joint journal paper describing the challenge and summarizing its outcome, which will be submitted to a high-impact journal (IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging or Medical Image Analysis).

Please contact the organizers if you have any questions.
