Many important eye diseases as well as systemic diseases manifest themselves in the retina. While a number of other anatomical structures contribute to the process of vision, this review focuses on retinal imaging and image analysis. Following a brief overview of the most prevalent causes of blindness in the industrialized world that includes age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma, the review is devoted to retinal imaging and image analysis methods and their… Expand

Objective and expert-independent validation of retinal image registration algorithms by a projective imaging distortion model
TLDR
This paper presents a method of generating simulated retinal images by modeling the geometric distortions due to the eye geometry and the image acquisition process and presents a validation process that can be used for any retinal image registration method by tracing through the distortion path and assessing the geometric misalignment in the coordinate system of the reference standard.

TLDR
Experimental results show that the proposed approach provides accurate segmentation for OCT images affected by speckle noise, even in sub-optimal conditions of low image contrast and presence of irregularly shaped structural features in the OCT images. Expand
Detection of Anatomic Structures in Human Retinal Imagery
TLDR
This paper reports results for the automatic detection of the optic nerve and localization of the macula using digital red-free fundus photography and relies on the accurate segmentation of the vasculature of the retina followed by the determination of spatial features describing the density, average thickness, and average orientation of the Vasculature in relation to the position of the fibre optic nerve.
