The ITEC Cataract-101 dataset consists of videos from 101 cataract surgeries, annotated with different operation phases that were performed by four different surgeons over a period of 9 months. These surgeons are grouped into moderately experienced and highly experienced surgeons (assistant vs. senior physicians), providing the basis for experience-based video analytics, as described in detail in the corresponding paper presented at MMSYS 2018 (if you use our dataset, please cite this paper) .
Cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed microscopic surgeries in the field of ophthalmology.
The goal behind this kind of surgery is to replace the human eye lens with an artificial one, an intervention that is often required due to aging.
The entire surgery is performed under microscopy, but co-mounted cameras allow to record and archive the procedure.
The videos collected in this dataset were recorded at Klinikum Klagenfurt (Austria) and contain annotations of the 10 different phases of Cataract surgery:
