Dr. Ou Tan


Dr. Ou Tan is an Assistant Professor of Research Ophthalmology at the Oregon Health and Science University (www.ohsu.edu). He joined the faculty at Casey Eye Institute in September 2010. Dr. Tan earned his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, in 2000. He completed his post-doctoral research at National Institute of Radiology Science, Chiba, Japan, in 2002. He acted as a research associate in Cleveland Clinic Foundation from 2002 to 2004. He was an assistant professor of research ophthalmology University of Southern California 2004-2010. His research of interest includes medical image analysis and computer aided diagnosis in glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and age related macular degeneration with optical coherence tomography. He has developed scanning patterns to improve mapping of the macular regions and optic disc. He has developed automatic image processing algorithms to measure the thickness of the macular ganglion cell complex (nerve fiber, ganglion cell, and inner nuclear layer), thickness of peripapillary nerve fiber layer and total retinal blood flow.
