A review of feature-based retinal image analysis

This review found two key areas to be addressed for the future development of automatic retinal image analysis: fundus image quality and the affect image processing may impose on relevant clinical information within the images.

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES & RESEARCH TECHNOLOGY Review on: Identification of all True Vessels from Retinal Images

This paper is about identifying true vessels as a post processing step to vascular structure segmentation in retinal images to better understand the relationsh ip between the retinal microvasculature and cardiovasc ular disease.

A Review on the Extraction of Quantitative Retinal Microvascular Image Feature

This paper will review recent research on the image processing-based extraction techniques of the quantitative retinal microvascular feature and mainly focuses on features associated with the early symptom of transient ischemic attack or sharp stroke.

Image Analysis for Ophthalmology: Segmentation and Quantification of Retinal Vascular Systems

This chapter describes a set of widely used retinal imaging modalities, including fundoscopy, fluorescein angiography (FA), and optical coherence tomography (OCT), along with emerging modalities to measure retinal blood flow dynamics, to describe processing techniques for measuring geometrical vascular structures.

State-of-the-Art in Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography Image Analysis

Various techniques that are currently used to process raw image data into a form that can be clearly interpreted by clinicians are reviewed.

Detection of Anatomic Structures in Human Retinal Imagery

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.

Computational models for stuctural analysis of retinal images

A robust and reliable automated retinal image analysis technique to allow for early detection of various retinal and other diseases and four innovative segmentation methods have been proposed.

Novel image processing techniques to detect lesions using lab view

A novel technique for diagnosis of lesions through Fluorescein Angiographic Images using Virtual Instrumentation(VI) is presented, which identifies the region of abnormality and lesion growth.

Retinal image analysis: preprocessing and feature extraction

The use of an image enhancement technique for the compensation of non-uniform contrast and luminosity distribution in retinal images is proposed and optic nerve head segmentation is explored by means of color mathematical morphology and the use of active contours.



Morphometry of the optic nerve and retinal vessels in children by computer-assisted image analysis of fundus photographs

The new method for quantitative analysis of fundus morphology utilizing a personal computer-assisted digital mapping system is unique in measuring both the optic nerve head and the retinal vessels and is therefore especially useful for detailed studies of normal and abnormal development of these structures in children.

Ophthalmic fundus imaging: today and beyond.

Quantifying changes in retinal circulation: the generation of parametric images from fluorescein angiograms

The generation of functional time to maximum images enabling the health of the retinal circulation to be quantified with respect to the rate at which the vasculature fills with fluorescein offers a potential tool for detecting the onset of retinopathy and monitoring its progression.

Progress towards automated diabetic ocular screening: A review of image analysis and intelligent systems for diabetic retinopathy

The advent of digital data sets has made image analysis more accessible, although questions regarding the assessment of individual algorithms and whole systems are only just being addressed.

Tele-ophthalmology screening for retinal and anterior segment diseases

A high sensitivity and specificity was found when using the DIO, indicating that it could be used in tele-ophthalmic screenings, and further modifications are needed to make the instrument more user-friendly and to enable it to be used with undilated pupils, so that it can be easily operated by health-care personnel in remote areas.

Comparison of diagnosis of early retinal lesions of diabetic retinopathy between a computer system and human experts.

The performance of the computer vision system in diagnosing early retinal lesions was comparable with that of human experts and could become a mass screening tool and a clinical aid indiagnosing early lesions of diabetic retinopathy.

Retinal vascular image analysis as a potential screening tool for cerebrovascular disease: a rationale based on homology between cerebral and retinal microvasculatures

The anatomical and physiological homology between the retinal and cerebral microvasculatures is described and the evidence that retinal microvascular changes occur in cerebrovascular disease is reviewed.

Digital stereo image analyzer for generating automated 3-D measures of optic disc deformation in glaucoma

A digital stereovision system for visualizing the topography of the optic nerve head from stereo optic disc images is presented and a strong correlation is found between the computer-generated quantitative cup/disc volume metrics and manual metrics commonly used in a clinic.
