Evired Cohort

On the 21st of December 2023, EviRed’s recruitment ended with an outstanding inclusion of 3182 patients!

As a reminder, 14 French sites participate in this clinical study. Patients are followed every year. Their medical data related to diabetes and eye conditions are collected. Patient’s eyes are imaged with several   modalities and different machines for each modality.

We would like to thank all the teams on the 14 sites for their amazing work and all the patients who agreed to participate in this cohort.

Evired AI team works recognized during the MICCAI conference in Vancouver ( Canada)

During the last MICCAI (Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions) conference held from October 8-12, 2023, in Vancouver, the  UBO-LATIM team members, in charge of AI for EVIRED has presented three papers :

  1. “Longitudinal self-supervised learning using neural ordinary differential equation”/Zeghlache and al. Predictive Intelligence in Medicine. PRIME 2023. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol 14277. Springer, Cham. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-031-46005-0_1
  2. “LMT: Longitudinal Mixing Training, a framework to predict disease progression from a single image.”/ Zeghlache and al. Machine Learning in Medical Imaging. MLMI 2023. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol 14349. Springer, Cham. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-031-45676-3_3
  3. “Improved Automatic Diabetic Retinopathy Severity Classification Using Deep Multimodal Fusion of UWF-CFP and OCTA Images”/El Habib Daho, et al. Ophthalmic Medical Image Analysis” . OMIA 2023. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol 14096. Springer, Cham.  https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-031-44013-7_2

Additionally, during this conference, Yihao LI and Mostafa EL HABIB DAHO distinguished themselves during two challenges, organized as part of the congress:

  1. STAGE (Structural Functional Transition in Glaucoma Assessment – https://aistudio.baidu.com/competition/detail/968/0/introduction), organized by A*STAR (Singapore) and Sun Yat-Sen University (Canton) and sponsored by Baidu, finishing 1st on one task and 2nd on another.
  2. MMAC (Myopic Maculopathy Analysis Challenge) – https://codalab.lisn.upsaclay.fr/competitions/12441#learn_the_details-overview), organized by Tsinghua University (Beijing) and Shanghao Jiao Tong University (Shanghai), finishing 1st on one task and 2nd on another.

For context, the MICCAI conference is a premier event that attracts  leading scientists – including biomedical scientists, engineers, and clinicians from a wide range of disciplines –  dedicated to research in medical imaging and computer-assisted intervention.

Recognition of EVIRED AI team during the 25th MICCAI conference

The MICCAI (Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions) is a non-profitable professional organization. This organization includes Scientists doing research work in the fields of Computer Science and Medicine.

During its 25th Conference, from 18-25 September 2022, in Singapore, the work of UBO-LATIM team members, in charge of AI for EVIRED was recognized by the international community

  1.     Yihao LI, Mostafa EL HABIB DAHO and Rachid ZEGHLACHE are on the 3rd step of the podium at the “Diabetic Retinopathy Analysis Challenge”. The aim of the challenge was to classify OCTA images and 74 people participated in this challenge.
  2.     Rachid was honoured by the prize of “best presentation winner 2022” of the Ophthalmology workshop.

Congratulations to Yihao, Mostafa and Rachid*! Research work performed by the LATIM-UBO team has been recognized and much appreciated during this international congress.

EVIRED is proud to have such quality partners on board.

EviRed reached the 2000th patient enrolment milestone!

On the 6th of October 2022, the 2000th patient has been enrolled in the EVIRED project!

In parallel, patients included earlier are coming back for their 1 year follow-up visits and recruitment is still active to reach our next milestones.


Many thanks to all the 14 sites and their team members who work hard everyday to include and follow-up those patients!


Recruitment is still active to reach our next target!

Welcome to 4 new investigator sites in EviRed !

We initiated 4 new investigator sites over the last 6 weeks.

The teams of Prof. Weber (CHU- Nantes),  Dr Bonnin (Fondation Rothschild, Paris) , Dr Gascon ( Clinique Monticelli –Marseille ) and  Prof. Baillif  (CHU –Nice) are now ready to include patients in the EviRed Cohort.

With these new sites, more patient data will be added to the current database, and our recruitment power will be increase. The 10 first initiated investigator sites are still working hard to recruit patients and organize the first M12 follow up visits

Thanks to  all for the accomplished work and welcome on board to the new sites. We are all building  this fantastic and unique EviRed Cohort.

the 1000th patient has just been enrolled in the Evired project!

The 1000th patient has been enrolled on the 14th December 2021.


Since the beginning of the project, ten investigator sites in France have been working hard on the recruitment of the Evired Cohort.

All site initiation visits have been completed under protocol amendment #1 between March and August 2021.

All sites are now activated and recruit patients on a daily basis.


On 14th December, we reached our first recruitment milestone: 1000 patients included in the study.

Many thanks to all team members involved in the project…


Other good news: the recruitment is still ongoing and everyone is focused on making sure the Evired project will be a real success
