    A paper by Sandra Wagner was published in the Open Access journal PLOS ONE.

    The journal PLOS ONE is an inclusive journal community working together to advance science for the benefit of society, now and in the future.

    The article titled "Review of the application of the open-source software CilOCT for semi-automatic segmentation and analysis of the ciliary muscle in OCT images" by HFA doctoral student Sandra Wagner analyzes the segmentation of the ciliary muscle using optical coherence tomography. Until now, segmentation of the ciliary muscle is often performed manually using either custom-developed programs or image processing software. The article presents a novel software for semi-automatic segmentation of the ciliary muscle which is fostering documentation and reproducibility of research through the possibility of replicating the analysis.

    The paper was produced in collaboration with Hector Fellow Eberhart Zrenner as well as Torsten Straßer who is researching at the Institute of Ophthalmology at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen.
