Siren FM interview: How retinal imaging research could help prevent blindness

Marie Curie Researcher within the School of Computer Science, Georgios Leontidis, talks about his research into detecting diabetic retinopathy

As part of the Retinal Vascular Modelling, Measurement and Diagnosis (REVAMMAD) project led by the University of Lincoln, UK, Georgios is investigating new methods for the early screening and diagnosis of the disease by developing computer models which can detect small changes in the blood vessels of the eye.

Siren FM: Professor Andrew Hunter talks about heading up collaborative project to combat disease


Professor Hunter, who is the REtinal Vascular Modelling, Measurement and Diagnosis (REVAMMAD) project originator and coordinator, spoke about the aims of the research during Siren FM’s drivetime show.
Scientists from across the EU are in Lincoln for a two-week training workshop.

The aim of the project is to train a new generation of interdisciplinary scientists for the academic, clinical and industrial sectors, and to further advances in diagnosis, prognosis and prevention of diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, stroke and coronary heart disease and retinal diseases.
