Automatic segmentation of retinal layers in spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images plays a vital role in the quantitative assessment of retinal disease, because it provides detailed information which is hard to process manually. A number of algorithms to automatically segment retinal layers have been developed; however, accurate edge(More)
The choroid is an important structure of the eye and plays a vital role in the pathology of retinal diseases. This paper presents an automated choroid segmentation method for high-definition optical coherence tomography (HD-OCT) images, including Bruch's membrane (BM) segmentation and choroidal-scleral interface (CSI) segmentation. An improved retinal nerve(More)
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness among elderly individuals. Geographic atrophy (GA) is a phenotypic manifestation of the advanced stages of non-exudative AMD. Determination of GA extent in SD-OCT scans allows the quantification of GA-related features, such as radius or area, which could be of important value to(More)
PURPOSE To develop a predictive model based on quantitative characteristics of geographic atrophy (GA) to estimate future potential regions of GA growth. DESIGN Progression study and predictive model. PARTICIPANTS One hundred eighteen spectral-domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans of 38 eyes in 29 patients. METHODS Imaging features of(More)
PURPOSE To display drusen and geographic atrophy (GA) in a single projection image from three-dimensional spectral domain optical coherence tomography images based on a novel false color fusion strategy. METHODS We present a false color fusion strategy to combine drusen and GA projection images. The drusen projection image is generated with a restricted(More)
PURPOSE In clinical research, it is important to measure choroidal thickness when eyes are affected by various diseases. The main purpose is to automatically segment choroid for enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) images with five B-scans averaging. METHODS The authors present an automated choroid segmentation method based on(More)
PURPOSE The retinal vessel visualization from spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images is important for ocular disease diagnosis and multimodal retinal image processing. The purpose is to display the retinal vessel in a single projection image from 3D SD-OCT images by using the light absorption and shadow characteristics of the retinal(More)
To investigate the correlations between hyper-reflective foci and hard exudates in patients with non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) and proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) images. Hyper-reflective foci in retinal SD OCT images were automatically detected by the developed algorithm.(More)
