Although laser retinal surgery is the best available treatment for choroidal neovascularization, the current procedure has a low success rate (50%). Challenges, such as motion-compensated beam steering, ensuring complete coverage and minimizing incidental photodamage, can be overcome with improved instrumentation. This paper presents core image processing algorithms for (1) rapid identification of branching and crossover points of the retinal vasculature; (2) automatic montaging of video… CONTINUE READING
