Non-invasive recognition of eye torsion through optical imaging of the iris pattern in ocular proton therapy.

Paul Scherrer Institut, Switzerland.

The introduction of non-invasive imaging techniques such as MRI imaging for treatment planning and optical eye tracking for in-room eye localization would obviate the requirement of clips implantation for many patients undergoing ocular proton therapy. This study specifically addresses the issue of torsional eye movement detection during patient positioning. Non-invasive detection of eye torsion is performed by measuring the iris pattern rotations using a beams eye view optical camera. When handling images of patients to be treated using proton therapy, a number of additional challenges are encountered, such as changing eye position, pupil dilatation and illumination. A method is proposed to address these extra challenges while also compensating for the effect of cornea distortion in eye torsion computation. The accuracy of the proposed algorithm was evaluated against corresponding measurement of eye torsion using the clips configuration measured on x-ray images. This study involves twenty patients who received ocular proton therapy at Paul Scherrer Institute and it is covered by ethical approval (EKNZ 2019-01987).
