The AGE challenge is open for participation!

Welcome to the Angle closure Glaucoma Evaluation Challenge! AGE was organized as a half day Challenge in conjunction with the 6th MICCAI Workshop on Ophthalmic Medical Image Analysis (OMIA), a Satellite Event of the MICCAI 2019 conference in Shenzhen, China.

AGE 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, AGE offers the chance to try your software on a real challenge, this year with AS-OCT images.

The goal of the challenge is to evaluate and compare automated algorithms for angle closure classification and localization of scleral spur (SS) points on a common dataset of retinal fundus images. We invite the medical image analysis community to participate by developing and testing existing and novel automated classification and segmentation methods.
