This paper reviews established and emerging parallel technologies, which are employed to enhance the performance of digital signal processing algorithms. Special attention is paid to algorithms with applications in medical imaging. Parallel implementations of some of the most commonly used algorithms, such as Fourier transforms, convolution and cross-correlation are discussed. Parallel optimization of a newly introduced method in optical coherence tomography is presented. Its performance, in…

Parallel approaches to integration with applications in optical coherence tomography

This paper presents a comparison between three GPU-based parallel approaches to integration in digital signal processing (DSP) based on the many-core architecture of the GPU, employed in generating synthesized scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO) images.

Imaging the eye fundus with real-time en-face spectral domain optical coherence tomography.

An optimized algorithm is presented that can be used to provide en-face MS-OCT images much quicker than previously obtained as well as simultaneous real-time display of up to 4 en- face OCT images of 200 × 200 pixels from the fovea and the optic nerve of a volunteer.

Optical coherence tomography for ultrahigh resolution in vivo imaging

Optical coherence tomography functions as a type of 'optical biopsy' to provide cross-sectional images of tissue structure on the micron scale and is a promising imaging technology because it can provide images of tissues in situ and in real time, without the need for excision and processing of specimens.

Master-slave interferometry for parallel spectral domain interferometry sensing and versatile 3D optical coherence tomography.

Eliminating the need of linearization leads to lower cost OCT systems and opens potential avenues in increasing the speed of production of en-face OCT images in comparison with conventional SDI.

Optical coherence tomography.

The optical coherence tomograph is a new, noninvasive technical device that can obtain cross-sectional, high-resolution images-optical coherence tomographs (OCT)-of the retina. This instrument

Analog and Digital Signals and Systems

This book presents a systematic, comprehensive treatment of analog, discrete signal analysis and synthesis and an introduction to analog communication theory. The material is divided into five parts.

Complex master slave interferometry.

It is demonstrated that two experimental channeled spectra only acquired at Master stage suffice to produce A-scans from any number of resolved depths at the Slave stage, and the utilization of complex signal processing is improved.

Optical Coherence Tomography for Art Conservation & Archaeology

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a fast scanning Michelson interferometer originally designed for in vivo imaging of the eye. In 2004, our group along with two other groups first reported the

The Design and Implementation of FFTW3

It is shown that such an approach can yield an implementation of the discrete Fourier transform that is competitive with hand-optimized libraries, and the software structure that makes the current FFTW3 version flexible and adaptive is described.
