    Optimized Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging With Hough Transform-Based Fixed-Pattern Noise Reduction

    Fixed-pattern noise seriously affects the clinical application of optical coherence tomography (OCT), especially, in the imaging of tumorous tissue. We propose a Hough transform-based fixed-pattern noise reduction (HTFPNR) method to reduce the fixed-pattern noise for optimizing imaging of tumorous tissue with OCT system. Using by the HTFPNR method, we detect and map the outline of fixed-pattern noise in the OCT images, and finally efficiently reduce the fixed-pattern noise by the longitudinal and horizontal intelligent processing procedure. We adopt the image-to-noise ratio with full information (INRfi) and the noise reduction ratio (NRR) to evaluate the outcome of fixed-pattern noise reduction ratio ...
