The Challenge: Photogrammetry of the Grave’s orbitopathy patients

University Clinical Centre of Serbia is the capital health service in Serbia that cares for more than a million patients annually. It is a research and teaching centre for doctors and students of all levels of studies of the Medical Faculty at the University of Belgrade.

Thyroid department (TD) is a unit of the Clinic of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Diseases of Metabolism which is a part of University Clinical Centre of Serbia.

TD is a member of European Group on Graves’ Orbitopathy (EUGOGO), and one of the European leading centres on GO. TD diagnoses and treats hundreds of patients with Graves’ disease (hyperthyroidism) and GO.

Graves’ orbitopathy is disease that manifests with several eye problems such as redness, oedema and proptosis (protrusion of the eyeballs). Documenting and measuring signs of disease is critical in the patient treatment and follow-up. Some of these signs are assessed by clinicians and are subjective. Photogrammetric measurements based on the face photograph would achieve both, better quantification, and objective documentation of the patient.

By designing solution, photogrammetric measurements based on the face photograph, students will improve patient care and satisfaction, help clinicians to assess all components of GO, and make a base for better research in the field.
