The current study describes the development and assessment of innovative, machine learning (ML)-based approaches for automated detection and pixel-accurate measurements of regions with geographic atrophy (GA) in late-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD) using optical coherence tomography systems. 900 OCT volumes, 100266 B-scans, and en face OCT images from 341 non-exudative AMD patients with or without GA were included in this study from both Cirrus (Zeiss) and Spectralis (Heidelberg) OCT systems. B-scan and en face level ground truth GA masks were created on OCT B-scan where the segmented ellipsoid zone (EZ) line, retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) line, and bruchs membrane (BM) line overlapped. Two deep learning-based approaches, B-scan level and en face level, were trained. The OCT B-scan model had detection accuracy of 91% and GA area measurement accuracy of 94%. The en face OCT model had detection accuracy of 82% and GA area measurement accuracy of 96% with primary target...
