      OCTID: Optical Coherence Tomography Image Database

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging modality which is widely used in clinical ophthalmology. OCT images are capable of visualizing deep retinal layers which is crucial for the early diagnosis of retinal diseases. In this paper, we describe a comprehensive open-access database containing more than 500 high-resolution images categorized into different pathological conditions. The image classes include Normal (NO), Macular Hole (MH), Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Central Serous Retinopathy, and Diabetic Retinopathy (DR). The images were obtained from a raster scan protocol with a 2mm scan length and 512x1024 pixels resolution. We have also included 25 normal OCT ...

      Developing algorithms for the analysis of retinal Optical Coherence Tomography images (Thesis)

      Vision loss, with a prevalence loss greater than 42 million in the United States is one of the major challenges of today's health-care industry and medical science. Early detection of different retinal-related diseases will dramatically reduce the risk of vision loss. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a relatively new imaging technique which is of great importance in the identification of ocular and especially retinal diseases. Thus, the efficient analysis of OCT images provides several advantages. In this thesis, we propose a series of image processing and machine learning techniques for the automated analysis of OCT images. The proposed methodology ...

    3. Classification of optical coherence tomography images for diagnosing different ocular diseases

      Classification of optical coherence tomography images for diagnosing different ocular diseases

      Optical Coherence tomography (OCT) images provide several indicators, e.g., the shape and the thickness of different retinal layers, which can be used for various clinical and non-clinical purposes. We propose an automated classification method to identify different ocular diseases, based on the local binary pattern features. The database consists of normal and diseased human eye SD-OCT images. We use a multiphase approach for building our classifier, including preprocessing, Meta learning, and active learning. Pre-processing is applied to the data to handle missing features from images and replace them with the mean or median of the corresponding feature. All the ...

    4. Intra-retinal segmentation of optical coherence tomography images using active contours with a dynamic programming initialization and an adaptive weighting strategy

      Intra-retinal segmentation of optical coherence tomography images using active contours with a dynamic programming initialization and an adaptive weighting strategy

      Retinal layer shape and thickness are one of the main indicators in the diagnosis of ocular diseases. We present an active contour approach to localize intra-retinal boundaries of eight retinal layers from OCT images. The initial locations of the active contour curves are determined using a Viterbi dynamic programming method. The main energy function is a Chan-Vese active contour model without edges. A boundary term is added to the energy function using an adaptive weighting method to help curves converge to the retinal layer edges more precisely, after evolving of curves towards boundaries, in final iterations. A wavelet-based denoising method ...
