Assessing visual acuity errors in pre-school children (CVER01)

Measuring visual acuity is in preschool children is challenging. In particular, young children will be prone to making mistakes in identifying symbols on eye charts, even when they can see what those symbols are, so called “false negative responses”.This project uses an established vision assessment protocol, EVA testing, and assesses the extent of false negative responses in this task.

Optimising outcomes for children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer

Each year in Australia, around 1200 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer and while most (84%) will achieve 5-year disease free survival, all will suffer significant distress from symptoms associated with cancer and treatment.High symptom burdens can lead to numerous negative outcomes that persist for many years beyond cancer treatment. These include disruptions normal development, schooling, relationships, careers, and living an independent life. This is concerning, because young people have a long time to live with these negative consequences, …

Validating smart-device 3D photography for remote healthcare of children with spinal deformity

Scoliosis is a three dimensional (3D) spinal deformity that manifests as a structural deformity of the spine and ribcage. Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is the most common presentation, affecting 2-4% of adolescents. AIS has no known cause or cure, and is most frequently severe in females.Effective management of paediatric scoliosis is heavily reliant upon early diagnosis, and timely specialist appointments at tertiary spine clinics in Brisbane. At these appointments, it is important for the spinal specialist to see the patient's …
