Welcome to the Pathologic Myopia Challenge! PALM is organized as a half day Challenge, a Satellite Event of the ISBI 2019 conference in Venice, Italy.

The PALM challenge focuses on investigation and development of algorithms associated with diagnosis of Pathologic Myopia (PM) and segmentation of lesions in fundus photos from PM patients. The goal of the challenge is to evaluate and compare automated algorithms for detection of patholgic myopia on a common dataset of retinal fundus images. We invite the medical image analysis community to participate by developing and testing existing and novel automated fundus classification and segmentation methods.
