    2. Image acquisition apparatus and control method therefor

      Image acquisition apparatus and control method therefor

      Provided is an image acquisition apparatus for acquiring a 3D retinal image with high resolution, which is capable of reducing a time period required for data transmission. In the image acquisition apparatus: a blink of a subject is detected; acquisition of image taking data is suspended thereafter until a line of sight becomes stable; and the data transmission to a computer is started at a timing at which a blink has been detected, thereby avoiding acquiring unnecessary data, allowing a capacity of a data buffer to be smaller, and making the data transmission efficient.

      Image acquisition apparatus, image acquisition system, and method of controlling the same

      An OCT apparatus that photographs with a plurality of measuring beams concurrently, has a mechanism for adjusting the optical path length of a reference beam for each measuring beam. Accordingly, when tomographic images photographed in this manner are displayed side by side, because the depth of photographing varies from one tomographic image to another, it is difficult for an operator to comprehend the positional relation between the photographed images. In displaying tomographic images acquired with a plurality of measuring beams, the display position of each tomographic image is adjusted based on the changed optical path length of a reference beam ...

      Image processing apparatus and method

      An image processing apparatus for supporting imaging diagnosis of an eye is provided. A layer boundary of a retina region is detected from a tomographic image. A position where the detected layer boundary intersects with an upper or lower limit position of the image in the depth direction of the tomographic image is determined as a dividing position. The tomographic image is divided at the determined dividing position by a scan line in the depth direction of the tomographic image. Subsequently, whether the detection is a false detection is judged for each divided region. An average density value of the ...

A tomographic-information acquisition unit acquires first tomographic information and second tomographic information in the first and second scanning areas from interference light. Third tomographic information is acquired from the first tomographic information and the second ...
